Dashboard Confessional's Christopher Carrabba is brokenhearted, but also wise enough to be brash and thoughtful enough to strip his soul bare of his signature angst and pain on So Impossible. This four-song EP depicts young love and the anxiety and inquisitions that follow. It also marks the debut of Sunny Day Real Estate's Dan Hoerner. Now a duo, Dashboard Confessional exudes something kinetic with breathy acoustics, and Carrabba's lush vocal cry is passionate and wistful. "For You to Notice" yearns with desire -- the feeling of sweaty palms or butterflies when one learns of their admiration for someone and how one might go about expressing it.

Dashboard Confessional's Christopher Carrabba is brokenhearted, but also wise enough to be brash and thoughtful enough to strip his soul bare of his signature angst and pain on So Impossible. This four-song EP depicts young love and the anxiety and inquisitions that follow. It also marks the debut of Sunny Day Real Estate's Dan Hoerner. Now a duo, Dashboard Confessional exudes something kinetic with breathy acoustics, and Carrabba's lush vocal cry is passionate and wistful. "For You to Notice" yearns with desire -- the feeling of sweaty palms or butterflies when one learns of their admiration for someone and how one might go about expressing it. Taking things further, "So Impossible" moves into the almost awkward phase of an introduction, and you almost believe that Carrabba might be the one who's plaguing himself a fool for going ahead with this love thing. The actual date arrives in calm and eerie acoustics of "Remember to Breathe," but the twitchy pop riffs in "Hands Down" culminates how it really ended. Good or bad, young love, young lust, and constant self-deprecation lead to something hopeful. Dashboard Confessional shapes it into something beautiful and inviting, and So Impossible reflects what everyone has faced at one time or another.

    An Amazing CD

    The four tracks tell a story - it begins with Chris telling of how he likes a girl so much but she doesn't know, on the second track she asks him out, the third track is right before they begin their date, and the fourth track is Chris singing about his best date ever. It's the best Dashboard EP in my opinion, sweet and something just about everyone can relate to.
