    -Mad World
    -Donnie Darkness
    -Vegas
    -You Scream
    -Therapy VIP 3 (I assume it's the third variation)
    -Soul Food

    Soul Food is nice, You Scream is ok, Mad World is bearable, even this VIP of Therapy might be considered as fine. Donnie Darkness sucks and Vegas is fucking shit. Won't probably bag this, I don't like his trademark sound anyways. The only tune of his I really liked was that Front 2 Back remix.

    EDIT: ^^ what Jack said

    Grow you wings was actually a pretty wicked album, since then he's been in recycle mode. Even some of the lighter bits on this ep are uninspired, an unoriginal. As if there is another remix of therapy, says it all really.

    Still praying to god this new g dub thing is gonna be sick, fingers crossed.

    Mad World - Nah
    Donnie Darkness - Should never have left the studio
    Vegas - Kinda like this
    You Scream - Not too dire
    Therapy VIP - I'll stick to the original
    Soul Food - Protection

    3/6 isn't bad I guess.

    i'll wait to be proven wrong.

    to be honest if they have anything good forthcoming its purley fluke. playaz have proved they have no quality control.

    Gotta say this is shit. Soul Food is the only one I would say is ok.

    And I was just thinking the other day how I quite liked the Move EP and that I wouldn't mind some new Original Sin...

    Not like this... Not like this.

    I hate these 6 track ep's, 2 tunes are normally pretty decent but the rest is very bland (Monster EP was the exact same), if it were just a 4 track ep and it was a straight 50/50 which good and bland id be far more inclined to purchase.

    too much filler and not enough time spent making the tracks decent. real shame, original sin's made some smashers in the past. Tthis is disappointing though.

    also I don't see the need for another Therapy remix - talk about rinsing a track! about as bad as when I saw crissy criss rewind TC - rockstar/pornstar 5 times at innovation

    I've bought like last 3 or 4 Playaz releases in the row, they all have been pretty good imo. The last really poor release was the previous Original Sin EP. So much for the fail quality control thing I guess.
