The songs are more varied, and there are some excellent slower songs that would have felt totally out of place on For Now. However, it's more probable that this EP shows Courage My Love with far more resources with which to record. The eminently marketable Ontario trio is releasing Becoming on a branch of Warner Music, and everything here displays significantly more polish than was evident on previous releases. The guitars are sharper, the songwriting itself is more "genre-standard," and the vocal harmonization is better executed.
On the note of songwriting, this is an exceedingly safe release. It appears Warner Music has given the green light to everything they know will sell, and while the EP is most certainly in line with the band's previous material it feels rather standard in terms of what a poppier pop-punk release is "supposed" to sound like
