"...The National produces some of the best B-sides around (check out “Cherry Tree”, “Ashamed of the Story I Told”, and “Driver, Surprise Me” for a few other great ones), and “The Virginia EP” is a testament to that" (

“The Virginia EP” is far more than an assorted collection of B-sides but instead a strong, fully-formed piece of work, one that ranks up with other classic EP’s like “My Iron Lung” (1994), “Pisces Iscariot” (1994), and Arcade Fire’s debut (2003) as well as The National’s other albums. The 4/5 rating does not mean ‘it’s excellent for an EP’ but rather ‘it’s excellent for an album’ – a judgment that holds true even if the demo/live versions of previously released album material (Slow Show, Lucky You, Fake Empire) are removed.
