Generally, I'm not a Dashboard Confessional fan. But surprisingly enough, I quite enjoy this EP. It's a lot different from some of their other, simpler music. "Summers Kiss" is more complex, and over-all better written material. I will not listen to any other Dashboard albums, only Summers Kiss.
One of the components that make this EP great, is the drumming. I have to say, I was quite impressed with Mike Marsh's drumming. It seems much more complex than a lot of bands out there right now who just seeem to stick with one simple drum beat.
For the most part, (as most of you likely already know) it's basically an acoustic/drum/bass album. Except for the last minute or so of "Ender Will Save Us All" where Chris busts out the electric and for the first time on this album showing us that yes, it's not always sappy acoustic rock.
This is classic Dashboard Confessional material. All four songs on this EP are equally as great as the last. I'm sure some people are skeptical about listening to Dashboard, but I seriously suggest you check this EP out if you're into stuff like Elliott Smith etc. (singer/songwriting stuff). They're well written songs, which are a joy to listen to.
