"Little remains of the sincere emo scene of yesteryear. Rites of Spring and Sunny Day Real Estate have long since glided into oblivion, as have recent torchbearers such as the Promise Ring and Get Up Kids. So, where does that leave those who like our singer's heart not only on his/her sleeve, nut spewing out of their mouth? Well, sad. And emo. But, perk up because Goodcore Records presents the debut EP by Tucson, Arizona's The Goodbye Kiss. Standout track 'Bestowal upon the Acquisitive" embodies all that stands so promising about this young act. Upon first listen, one cannot help get sucked in by the soft, plodding guitars and emotive drumming; illustrating, perhaps, what early Sunny Day Real Estate rehearsals may have sounded like. Most of the tunes push or surpass the five-minute mark, using strings, scorching feedback, and samples to compliment and propel the depth of some bare, poetic lyrics. On opener 'Lost in the Sunshine of My Mind,' singer Petie Ronstadt sings, 'My memory of yesterday is gone.' With young blood acknowledging their past without plagiarizing it, those memories, and the excitement of a short-lived and largely misunderstood genre, may return. This EP overflows with such promise." --Wonkavision
