This EP is a great EP. I really love these songs on here. I can listen to all of these songs on here and like them all. Skrillex is a very talented artist. I really like his work. I give him a FIVE stars for this one!
Skrillex is America's most famous electrostep artist and as such he had little difficulty creating buzz for his latest EP. It's pretty deserving of it though: containing 7 tracks, "Bangarang! And The Wonder Years Split" is a rather good vertical slice of what Skrillex does.

As is the man's wont, only one of the tracks ("Right In") is created by entirely by his own hand, whereas the others are collaborations with like-minded artists, such as Sirah. "Right In" is a decent track, but it definitely is not the best track on here. I reserve that honour for the titular "Bangarang", by Skrillex and Sirah, which meets the melodic heights of Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites but has that certain rawness to its bass drops that reminded me of Skrillex's remix of Benny Benassi's Cinema, which effectively turned a terrible track into rather a enjoyable one for electrostep lovers such as myself. It's a pretty big compliment for "Bangarang", therefore, to be compared to it.

A collaboration between The Doors and Skrillex sounds like a terrible idea as well, but "Breakn' a Sweat", which is just that, actually comes out better than I had expected. I'm not sure how much The Doors had a say in the build-up of the song, their noticeable influence having been largely contained to screaming the title of the song in between the perpetual drops, but it sounds like a Skrillex song and you can't fault it for that.

The other four tracks are good in their own way, but I'd still like to give a shout out to Kyoto, which comes in second place as the EP's best track and is Skrillex at his best: you'll be hearing this song a lot at parties, so you better get used to it. The other three songs all have their own way of being good, so there's a decent amount of variety on here in a genre that allows for relatively little of it.
