A highlight of the EP is "Runnin' outta Lipstick". This song is one of two tracks on the EP that hasn't been heard before (at least, I haven't heard it), and the song is just so SaraBeth. It's not often singers describe themselves exactly in a song, like SaraBeth does in this one with lyrics like "ponytail pulled through a baseball cap" and "ain't nothing better than a pepperoni pizza, cold Bud Light and a Cardinals game." Anyone who knows anything about SaraBeth knows that she wears tons of baseball caps and her brother is a baseball player. These details that are obviously true make the song unique, and only a song she can sing. Additionally, the production and vocals in this song are outstanding. The fiddle going throughout the songs adds a old school vibe, which mixed with the country pop creates an interesting cross. SaraBeth has the best vocal performance on this song than anywhere else on the EP, especially the note at the end of the bridge, where she belts, "till I'm runnin' outta lipstick, yeah." Her voice is so clear and sweet and basically perfect. It's a moment in the song to listen to again and again, because it shows off Sarabeth's powerful and unique vocals.
One low of the EP is "Do What You Say You're Gonna Do." Although still a decent song, this song is not as unique as the other songs on the EP, and frankly, is not as well written. Her vocal performance on this song can get a bit repetitive, and the production is mediocre. There are ways this song could be improved and definite pluses, but it's a step behind the rest of the songs on the EP.
The EP closes with the lead single, "I'm Sick of It." As discussed in the Stageit review, this song is another interesting track production-wise. Dance-electro-rock-pop meets country. It is so hard to describe this sound because it is so unique. There are fiddles, electric guitars, along with many various pop instruments. It is a masterfully produced song, and closes the EP on a definite high note.
Although this EP again lacks a ballad, it is a solid record. It would be nice to see SaraBeth explore her softer side again, but this is still an excellent EP and a must have for any country music lover.
