Review: The follow-up single to "Don't Let's Start", this is another good EP, though a little bit more experimental than the last one. "For Science" is a 2 minute rock opera, featuring both Johns and Lt. Anne Moore on vocals. "Kiss Me, Son Of God" is an accordion-based version of the string-laden song that'd later show up on Lincoln. "Mr. Klaw" is one of the only songs to feature John Linnell on guitar, and "Untitled" is taken from a message left on Dial-A-Song. The single mix of the a-side, though, is the stronger version, as it adds an intro to the album version, which just starts cold. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
