The Ataris - All You Can Ever Learn is What You Already Know

This EP is highly unnecessary. The Ataris are one of the premier pop punk outfits in the universe, but not everything they touch is pure gold. Most notably, the acoustic versions of their tracks leave something to be desired. For the most part, The Ataris only sound good when the guitars are plugged in and the amps are turned on.

Not everything on this EP is an acoustic version of an album track, there are also incredibly rough demos and unreleased tracks which weren't exactly begging for a release. The whole thing feels like a record label cash grab, and as such it is not a necessary purchase for Ataris fans.

Baleeted? Yes. I don't need this, and neither do you.
