Billy Idol - new EP Roadside

Billy Idol's new EP is great. The lead single Bitter Taste is really growing on me. It's worth checking out.

I orderes it, came two weeks after release.
Listened to it once. Great packaging for an EP, at least there's a booklet with the lyrics.

only listened once? I knew from the first sound on the first song it was going to ge great. I preferred that song first, but Bitter Taste has really grown on me and is my favorite now. It's also charting on adult afternative.

I only received it as an import last week, and the following morning, I had a daughter.
Now, I listened to it three times.
I think the 3rd track is themost surprising.

Human brain needs 7 listening to judge an "album".

By the way, it clocks at only 16 minutes, which is really too short, even for an EP.
In fact, considering the lenght, its more of a maxi single than an EP.
It costs less money to produce on vinyl than a true EP.

I would have liked that there was some bonus on the CD, if not more music, at least an interview.

I've seen people on here who bought a Prince album and said they only listened to it once, which makes no sense at all to me, so thought that's what you meant.

Having a daughter is a great reason to not have time for new music. Congradulations!

He performed it on Jimmy Kimmmel a week ago. Probably helped it move up.
