This EP is a re-recorded sample of their longer first EP, which was full of heart but a bit raw. These songs, however, are strong and well-crafted. Each track begs me to listen to every lyric and feel the effects of every measure. Their honesty, earnestness, and fervor leave a lasting impression and warm my heart with each listen. Not in how they sound, but in how they make me feel, the Collection reminds me of The Avett Brothers' middle albums.
