The Wanted [EP]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
The Wanted's 2012 release The EP combines tracks off the British boy band's two previous albums, including the group's 2010 self-titled debut and 2011's Battleground.

Ultimately, there is a musical sophistication and higher maturity level to the Wanted's sound than you might expect, and given that The EP compiles some of the best cuts from two albums, it makes for an engaging listen with broad cross-generational appeal.
