Bad Astronaut - Acrophobe
Anyway, Acrophobe is an interesting EP. It features some straightforward pop punk, but it also features a cover of an old folk tune ("500 Miles") and a cover of an Elliott Smith original ("Needle in the Hay"). As with any decent supergroup, Bad Astronaut appears to be a forum for its various band members to trot out things that didn't fit under the banner of their main bands. Acrophobe is pleasant, and even interesting, but hardly essential.
Baleeted? No. This EP qualifies as keepable, but it's not overqualified.
