Essentially, it's Chris in his most stripped down form: in an emotional frenzy, he wrote 3 songs and put them down in the studio.
Each track is impressive in it's own rights, as are with most of his songs. However... this cd should really be priced around (...) bucks. Not to knock on Chris and saying his music isn't worth the (...) dollars, but for three three minute songs, it's only for a real true fan, only.
So if you want to get a feel for Dashboard confessional, go get either of the first 2 LPs. Once you're addicted, get this one.
Drowning: I think it's a little weak in vocals, but I still really like it. Fave lyrics: Are you drowning your fears/in a glass of deception?/When everything's hazy/Everything will be OK.
Anyone, Anyone: Good, better vocally than Drowning in my opinion. Good lines: "I can't see how the way that you leave me alone makes us close."
For Justin: A very sweet song: "It's been a year now since you were here now/And I've been trying to heal inside/Dedications of how I placed/And I see your resemblance in my face/And our birthday I said an extra wish for you."
It receives only four songs simply because of it's short lenghth; otherwise it's good.
however, the fact that this cd has only three songs and lasts about seven and a half minutes might deter some folks from buying it, and rightfully so.
i like this cd. 'anyone, anyone' is most definately the standout track. however, i would only recommend this cd if you are a diehard dashboard confessional fan. if you are interested in getting something from this group(?), i recommend first purchasing one of the two full lengths.

If you're a hardcore Dashboard fan (as I am) you have to have this album. Period. Listen and enjoy early DC songs that aren't anywhere else.Published 14 days ago by peaches87
I guess if you like dashboard confessional a lot, I'd get it but the cd is just over 5 mins long. If you want to pay around $30 for some rarities then get it, otherwise I think you... Read morePublished on October 11, 2006 by Ryan J. Kempf
DAshboard rocks. The Drowning may be very short, but worth it. Chris relays his feelings to the listener very well.Published on August 4, 2004 by Emily

these songs are really enjoyable after they've grown on you, but not so much the first time you hear them. and these 3 songs don't merit the price. but they are good.Published on January 7, 2003
The songs are good, the only 3 songs. I paid [money] for this CD. This is very pricey and it made me mad! But I really like the songs. I just wish there was more than 3. Read morePublished on June 26, 2002 by Elizabeth Saunders
