This is an expanded version of the original four song EP. This is different power pop than say Big Star, there are some comparisons to New Wave bands like Elvis Costello, though this band came before and really could be considered pioneers. Really they are a mix of the two. They are a bit more up tempo than Big Star, but not quite as complex as some of Costello's work. "Hanging on the Telephone" is a fantastic power pop tune with good vocals, lively bass and catchy though not abrasive guitar. The band sounds the same on most of the rest of the songs, but this is by no way a bad thing. The band takes such a formula and turns tracks like "Working Too Hard" into a rock classic. The other tracks added on here are also of the same quality of the previous except with what sounds like different sound quality. A solid album of original material, unfortunately they made nothing else but moved on to other projects.
