Red Letter Day/Woodson

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
This CD combining two hard-to-find EPs 1997's Woodson 7" and 1999's Red Letter Day 10" provides an entertaining glimpse into two of the more raw and punk-edged stages in the evolution of the Get Up Kids.

This CD combining two hard-to-find EPs 1997's Woodson 7" and 1999's Red Letter Day 10" provides an entertaining glimpse into two of the more raw and punk-edged stages in the evolution of the Get Up Kids. A brash but melodic nine songs, the thing that really jumps out is the transition that this group made in the two years between recordings. The four songs from Woodson positioned last on this collection are very rough-edged and full of furious energy, while the songs that originally appeared on Red Letter Day foreshadow the band's now trademark harmonies and dynamic songwriting.
