serves as an introduction to Semisonic
's blend of melodic, guitar-driven pop and sensitive, '70s-flavored ballads. Issued while the band awaited the release of their first full-length effort, this EP features early versions of "The Prize" and "Brand New Baby," both of which were later revamped for Great Divide
. The band succeeds in many styles, whether it's the whimsical power-pop of "Sculpture Garden," the stripped-down acoustic sound of "The Gift," or the soulful tones of "Star." Pleasure
is a brief sample of Semisonic
that leaves the listener hungering for more.
