They don't shy away from conventional formats, they're more than happy to whack in a good old guitar solo and a chest-beating vocal delivery certainly isn't out of the question. All of these aspects can be found on the title-track, but despite these clichés it's actually a likeable song. The tender 'Goodbye' tackles the end of a relationship (such tales are the fuel that's powered the whole genre for nearly a century) but it is quite affecting. Some may find this EP a little too trad-rock for their particular taste but on the whole they take a well worn genre and prove that it still has a bit of fuel left in the tank yet. 'Place We Know Is Home' is a prime example. Guilty pleasure is a term that many people are unhappy with, so let's just say that 'Beast' is a surprising pleasure instead.
