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.
9The Dear Hunter
Blue EP

It's pretty and soothing and all those "blue" things, but not enough so to be
exciting or profoundly moving.
8The Dear Hunter
Green EP

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.
7The Dear Hunter
Orange EP

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
6The Dear Hunter
Red EP

Deny it All kicks goddamn ass.
5The Dear Hunter
Yellow EP

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
4The Dear Hunter
Indigo EP

Your Who does Casey think he is, Will Bevan?
3The Dear Hunter
Black EP

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.
2The Dear Hunter
White EP

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.
1The Dear Hunter
Violet EP

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.
