Wow, I forgot to review my favorite bands newest release.
Well, I think it's amazing how these guys are still going, after being dropped by their label, they continue doing what they do. Becasue of this EP only being released on mp3 download, it took a while for me to get. But its amazing.
This is some of Blindside's best work, it reminds me of Silence more than the other albums.
All five new songs are amazing, I have nothing to complain about.
"The Black Rose" is probably Blindside's best song, just Christiaan and a guitar. In my opinion, the best song of the year.

The live tracks are a little rough, but you can feel the emotion.

Simply incredible, I give it a 9.

I love this EP of course. Blindside being my favorite band of all time helps a little bit.

The new tracks are incredible and I felt the sound had something from the three most recent releases. I believe this is simply preparing us for something much bigger and much better. The live tracks are also great, especially Fell In Love With the Game.

I'd give it a 9.5 if I could, but I'll always round up for Blindside. 10 it is.

You'll have to go to their myspace and get your way from there. It goes through Klicktrack, and it safe.
