The Alarm E.P. Review (3 Stars)

This was the first official Alarm release in the USA, and also marked their first collection of songs that could not be deemed “a single”. This E.P. shows The Alarm in their rawest state: bristling with acoustic guitars, and harmonica, filled with youthful idealism, and creating a trademark sound all their own. The recordings here are more like lightening strikes than mere songs, each one distinct, yet with enough common musical and lyrical elements to sound like a cohesive whole.
