|Ranking The Color Spectrum|
Got this pretty late after avoiding the hype train all of last year. It's got
some really great material though overall I have to say I prefer Act II.
It's difficult to compare this to the rest of their work though, to be fair.
The massive amount of material really only allows for fair comparisons
within the Color Spectrum.

It's pretty and soothing and all those "blue" things, but not enough so to be
exciting or profoundly moving.

This is the only EP where I felt the color was too heavily reference. I get it, plant
life is often green, the constant lyrical references came off as slightly cheesy to
me. I had to find a complaint though because it's mostly solid, just inoffensive.

The EP with the ironically classic blues rock sound. Jamz hard for sure but while
it's completely solid in quality, none of it really jumps out and grabs me as a

Deny it All kicks goddamn ass.

On first listen, I found the yellow EP to be almost comically jovial. But further
listens revealed it to be the most infectious EP of the bunch. It definitely
captures the brightness of the color without blatant references to the sun, or

Your Who does Casey think he is, Will Bevan?
|3||The Dear Hunter|
If "Take More Than You Ned" wasn't so awkward, this could possibly be higher.
It's not necessarily a bad song, but the other three are easily among my top 10
favorites of the entire collection.

A fitting culmination to the concept as a summary of the entire project. The
choruses soar more than ever yet the band manages to stay relatively subdued
in their electronic wonderland. As grandiose as the Mona Lisa's rack.

Okay maybe this is the most infectious of the EPs. It's 16 minutes of cacophonic
bombast and saccharine vocal harmonies. Mr. Mallum and Lilliam...nguhh.
|4-7 could probably go either way. I started with Red and Orange as 4 and 5 but swapped them around several times.|
|Yo, it's so prismatic. |
|I really really like two of the songs on Yellow, but really dislike the other two. And I definitely agree about the blue one, too.|
BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS
|I still don't see what's so great about white|
|It's pretty damn uplifting, it probably has the strongest choruses on the album.|
YOU PUT BLUE LAST
THIS IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT IT SHOULD BE
No hard feelings tho. I feel like Violet and White are deserving|
|Blue and Green just don't grab me right now, they'll probably grow on me when I get more familiar with them. Which one would you say is the weakest EP though? They're all pretty solid.|
|Also Orange should be higher than 7...|
|now i'm looooooooooooooooooossssssssssssssst now i'm errrrrrrrrrr|
|green and red would be much higher on my list. yellow would probably be last.|
|why does everyone hate "take more than you need"? its a cool, proggy song|
|just another friday afternoon sperm banking|
|Despite Green being a little cheesy, "The Canopy" is sweet.|
