    The extended version is really worth buying. It includes a longer trumpet solo.

      Mindblowing EP of inventive and soulful pop music disguised under a ska banner.
      "Ghost Town" (which lives up its title in a perfect manner) is in a way The Specials going Beach Boys circa '67 in spirit : several superb songs snippets rolled into one beautiful, flegmatic disenchanted story, including a short but unforgettable mariachi trumpets passage ; whereas "Friday Night Saturday Morning" is one of the most beautiful and poignant working class songs to have ever reached my ears. Splendid stuff indeed.
