Release Date: 2002 | Tracklist


This EP by Hot Hot Heat was released a little while before the release of their breakthrough album, Make Up the Breakdown. Many people ignore this EP, but I actually like this EP more than Make Up the Breakdown (probably cause I hate "In Cairo" so much). This album contains 5 songs:

1. Le Le Low
2. 5 Times Out of 100
3. HAve a Good Sleep
4. Touch You Touch You
5. More for Show

1----------Le Le Low-----------------------------------------------

This song is so catchy it's scary. The fact is I'm not really sure what this song means, but does it matter when the song is this catchy? 5/5

2----------5 Times Out of 100---------------------------------------

I love the guitar background in this song. Again, another catchy song (well, this is what Hot Hot Heat does best). I really enjoy the part where the song slows down though. 5/5

3----------Have a Good Sleep----------------------------------------

I used to skip this song everytime I listen to this EP. But after a while, it grew on me....and I like this song a lot. It's weird when I listen to this song when I'm trying to sleep though... 4/5

4---------Touch You Touch You---------------------------------------

The beginning is cool. It sets the tune for the rest of the song. Probably the weakest song in this EP. But still good, better than most songs their latest album, Elevator, has to offer. 3.5/5

5---------More for Show----------------------------------------------

Whenever I hear this song, I wanna dance. Another good song by the band from the best city there is (VANCOUVER!!!) 4/5

>>---------------------------CONCLUSION------------------------------

Basically, this EP is damn catchy. If you liked Make Up the Breakdown, you'll like this EP for sure. If you like Hot Hot Heat, check out the Libertines. My first review, hope you enjoyed it.

Decent review, for a first one. Considering reading other reviews around the site to see a few different styles, one of which you might like to adopt for further reviews. Nice effort though.

I have this and have only listened to it once or twice, from memory it's not worth 4 stars, but that might be unfair considering I'm not familiar with the material.

I don't really see the similarities between Hot Hot Heat and the Libertines, not enough to mention them as a recommendation.

As for the post script, yes.
