Spring Break 4: Suntan City - EP (Capitol Nashville, 2012)

Luke Bryan

Reviewed by Michael Rampa

Luke Bryan's annual spring break EPs are innocuous distractions in a fairly decent discography. The Leesburg, Ga. Native's fourth and latest, is no exception. The songwriting is an exercise in vapidity with clichéd themes like partying and teenage breakups. The timing couldn't be more ironic.

This four-song bubble gum pop tribute to the young and overserved was put out shortly after his latest full length release, "tailgates & tanlines," garnered some critical acclaim and hit the top spot on the Billboard Charts.

The best thing you can say about this release is that it meets the stringent criteria for an EP (max 25 minutes or 4 songs) This is a prime example of why shorter is better sometimes.
