The Story So Far - Songs Of… Cover

We really love The Story So Far. Honestly, we do. But we're not sure this EP was necessary...

This acoustic EP features stripped back reworkings of three-and-a-bit songs from The Story So Far’s last album [‘What You Don’t See’], a brand new track, and a cover of Bob Marley’s ‘Waiting In Vain’. The latter is a plodding, pedestrian abomination that does nothing worthwhile, but completists will likely find something to savour in the alternative versions of ‘The Glass’, ‘Bad Luck’ and a truncated take on ‘All Wrong’, which, despite lacking the vigour that makes the plugged-in incarnation of this band so great, offer interesting takes on the originals. However, it’s the simple and highly affecting ‘Navy Blue’ that’s the star of the show; shame that’s the lone new effort.
