Not particularly. Might pick it up eventually though, depending on how good it is. I like Rolling Stone but there's a lot of room for error on an EP, and Stevie Stone isn't as consistent as ¡Mayday! or someone else.

Not at all.
Is anybody excited about this EP?
I haven't really explored much into his music...its all too, club like for my eears
I'm pre ordering this ep if its anything like rollin' stone. Can't you feel the momentum in this bitch!? 13 was a very good ep and it was good for ces cru to build anticipation before their album release next year. I didn't buy E.B.A.H because it was mediocre. I think everybody is mad about how that turned out and say they hate eps all together. My favorite releases this year Take me to your leader,Kicking and Screaming,Rollin' Stone,Thrift Store Halos and 13.
Tech n9ne's ep releases this year have been weak, because they are rushed. Before this he had two eps all together, and those two are way better then klusterfuk,e.b.a.h. Not to say that there are not any hit songs because there is, but the overall product is lacking. He doesn't usually release 3 eps in one year, this isn't normal. I'm going wait to see if the next ep will be better, if not I know his next album will be pretty damn good.
I see no reason to pre-order.
!Mayday¡ EP wasn't signed and I was underwhelmed by it, EBAH wasn't signed and it was disappointing and forgettable apart from 1-2 songs. I pre-ordered Kutt's but I'm not buying my sixth (?) EP this year from Strange Music especially with no incentive like an autograph.
I've been throwing the decals away because I don't need one let alone a dozen.
Definetly worth buying imo.
Just watched that Video and i think I'm actually going to dig this EP. He seems pretty down to earth, I'm impressed.
I understand Stone's busy with his Rollin Stone tour, but Strange could've increased this "Momentum" EP's album sales with the autograph incentive. Tech signed 7000+ A6A7 pre-orders while on tour, and I know for a fact Stevie wouldn't have to sign that many. If Tech can do as many pre-order album signatures as he's done throughout his career, I think the other artists can handle it.
Word. I have now bought every single EP on the site except that one because I wasn't motivated to pre-order it with no kind of bonus for doing so aside from another decal.

Or we can simply download the EP's for free and continue to do so until Strange Music realizes that we're tired of paying over $10 per month after shipping and handling for mediocre, decent at best, projects that usually only carry 5 to 7 actual songs.
Precisely. Unless Strange reps are going around to members' houses and holding a strap to their heads while they order the latest EP, I really don't see any reason why anybody needs to get their panties in a bunch over the fact that they keep dropping them. Those of us who appreciate them and choose to spend our $$$ have made the decision to do so, those of you who don't want to spend $10 after shipping on an EP....DON'T. Download it for free or do whatever you do and be happy about it, after all, it didn't cost you anything to download it for free, unless you're gonna complain about the bandwidth you used to get it. I personally like to have hard copies, not to mention that I feel good about supporting a label that seems to be all about the fans. I don't see a lot of other record label sites offering signed copies of CDs for no additional charge and clothing/merch for extremely reasonable prices with a clearance section to boot. The EPs are perfect for collectors like myself and that's really who I think they are meant for, not just casual listeners who would rather use a torrent site to get something for free than pay $7 for a hard copy. Strange is one of the last fan-friendly labels around, and I'm glad that they do what they do.

I can't believe people are bitching about hard copies. Hey if you don't want it on a CD, go to amazon or i tunes and download that shit, shit is available for download. But some of us are old school and I love the fact Strange is putting out hard copies. So let's have some options in life.
I dont know why u complaining, its more music! so far im diggin wat stone previewed thats why I preorded momentum and boiling point together...MORE MUSIC!plus the decals are better than autographs its a cool gift they jus need to give different colors.And the eps being signed is a plus but I always thought it counts when they autograph in person
Alex M sa
Travis said months ago that this is what he was going to do. I like having hard copies of CD's. They say it's to give us more music but 90% is to make some quick money. I'm also flustered to why they would release this 1 week before Tech's EP. It's going to kill Stevie Stone's sales. I'm sick of these not being signed also, that's another reason I liked getting Strange hard copies. Also they need to stop with adding the Strange Music decal.
Ryan said:I dont get why we keep getting so many eps, yea its cool to get the new music, but they should be download only cuz who wants a disc with 6 songs just takes up space, also confused as to whats goin on with releasing this one 1 week before techs supposed next ep on the 30th
