gusterepKeeping their established fanbase engaged with a collection of songs left-over from the sessions that became 2010’s EASY WONDERFUL, Boston’s GUSTER have issued the ON THE OCEAN EP.

Leading the collection of six with a title track that already appears on the previously-mentioned album, the remaining five are a mixed-bag of tracks that play as an uneven collection instead of a coherent EP, making it clear of what this really is – a Maxi-Single.

The live versions of Satellite and That’s No Way to Get to Heaven feel out-of place and jammed-in, while the closing remix of This is How it Feels to Have a Broken Heart just isn’t very good. ON THE OCEAN might be a fine item for the diehards to snag while checking out a live show, but there’s just nothing here for new listeners to embrace.
