    Editorial Review

    Albums that make Amazon.com's yearly "best of" list aresometimes judged using high-falutin' artsy talk. Rancid haslanded on the list because it compelled editors to scribble anarchysymbols in public hallways, buy skateboards, and start punk bands.Twenty-two songs, 39 minutes, and not one wasted second. A pure punkjoyride with the throttle wide open. --S. Duda ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Where did that come from.
    Its obvious Rancid have always thrown some hardcore into the mix,The Difference with this however is its not just thrown into the mix,it IS Plain straight forward hardcore punk.Gone are the Ska and reggae sounds and the Sing along choruses and taking their place is F*%# You lyrics and Incredible instrumental work (Namely Freemans Mach 5 speed Bass solos)which would make even Claypools jaw drop.Anyone who instantly thought Oh yay another Clash worship album is sadly mistaken.This has more in common with the fury of the pistols (only with talent).The album is just in your face hardcore punk from Track 1 to track 22 touching on everything from The media to war to backstabbers and Scenesters.If what you are looking for is Melodic commercially borderline punk rock DONT BUY THIS.But if on the other hand you want Furious In your face punk,You cant look past this one.In my view rancids best work to date.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rancid at their best
    Although I do think this is Rancid's best, I suggest getting And Out Come The Wolves first.
    With that said, this album is nothing short of phenominal. Just because I love it so much I'll do a track by track breakdown.

    Don Giovanni 5/5 Great opener, really lets you know that this ain't Life Won't Wait part II.
    Disgruntled 5/5 Another very short fast hardcore song with a real cool guitar solo in the middle.
    It's Quite Alright 5/5 very catchy yet still fits on the album, one of my favorites. Actually of decent length.
    Let Me Go 6/5 By far my favorite Rancid song and possibly favorite song ever, just everything is great about it. Worth the money just for this song.
    I Am Forever 5/5 Starts out slow then turns into another hardcore screamer, cool song.
    Poison 5/5 Catchy and hard this song is another favorite off the album.
    Loki 4/5 Just a bit too short at 47 seconds but I like it
    Black Hawk Down 4/5 Good but just not my thing, kinda repetitive
    Rwanda 5/5 Another song that really stands out, it's catch yet fits on the album and sounds great you'll never get bored of it
    Corruption 5/5 Very hardcore screaming song by lars I love it.
    Antennas 5/5 Softest on the album and really flows great, a favorite
    Rattlesnake 5/5 I love the guitar part at the beginning and the song really has a lot of meaning it's like anti-poser.
    Not To Regret 3/5 One of the 2 songs on here that's just really boring for me, I can't get into it
    Radio Havana 5/5 Long song at almost 4 minutes and some of Rancid's best I think. A bit out of place on this cd, however.
    Axiom 5/5 AMAZING bass solo and the song is just great. Beats Maxwell Murder (other rancid song with a great bass solo) any day.
    Black Derby Jacket 5/5 Matt sings this one and I really like his voice, also a great song
    Meteor Of War 3/5 The other song I just don't like on here. Yelling 'Joe Brown' over and over doesn't do it for me.
    Dead Bodies 6/5 My other favorite on here, Lars' screaming is really amazing and just a great song.
    Rigged on a Fix 4/5 Matt sings this one and it's cool but nothing outstanding
    Young Al Capone 4/5 kinda slips past the radar, you have to listen to the album a couple times before noticing it.
    Reconcilation 5/5 Matt's last song on here, really cool
    GGF 5/5 Kinda sad song about an old friend of Lint's but awesome closer, the last line "This is Rancid signing out for now, see you guys next time" is just so cool, you don't see Blink 182 or other poser bands ending their cds like that

    Anyways this is such an awesome cd it's nonstop action, fast all the way though and you will love it if you like punk, Even if you don't think you like hardcore punk you have to get this.

    (Oh and this album also comes with a poster, or at least the version I bought did, which makes it definately worth your $$$)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rancid minus the ska/Reggae influence
    Lets not overthink this one too much, its just Rancid stripping their music down to pure hardcore punk, as they did with Rancid 93,their debut album. If you dont like hardcore punk you wont like this album so dont expect another Out comes the wolves, or LIfe wont Wait. Rancid's best quality is the ability to change directions with each album and keep the music fresh. I believe thats the only thing they were trying to achieve with this album, nothing more. This album is not a cover up for Life Wont Wait, cuz I believe the band is proud of that album and most fans including myself enjoyed it for what it was. Rancid pulls off this hardcore style of punk better than most bands who do this full time, the bass is still apparent and each song is catchy and stands out from the rest. This album could be listened to from beginning to end. Its not too long to keep interest or short enough to feel cheated.This one's not for everyone, but proves Rancid reign as true pioneers of modern PUnk. There was The Clash, and The Ramones, then BAd REligion, and now there's RAncid. Lump them in with those legendary bands with no problems or hesitations. THIS IS NOT A SELL-OUT RECORD!!!!! ...

    Editorial Review

    Though possessing a heavy-duty indie history featuring such luminaries as the Pixies,Mission of Burma, and Throwing Muses, Boston is also famed for its booze-sodden Irish exile rock. And the Dropkick Murphys--clearly influenced by the Pogues at their most uproarious--are the cream of the present crop. Yet this is not simple jigging traditionalism. Despite employing bagpipes, mandolins, and tin whistles to add Celtic flavor to their sound, these guys are full-blown punks, harking back to the immediate post-Pistols era of the Angelic Upstarts. The riffs here are fast, heavy, and purposefully uncomplicated. The vocals are an impassioned gabble, usually building to terrace chants, while the lyrics are consumed by the plight of the working class in modern-day America and the need to keep a tight grip on Irish history. The Pogues' Shane MacGowan contributes a garbled but charismatic rap on the racy "Good Rats." The Murphys are also capable of heartfelt acoustic numbers, as evinced by the melancholic and impressively melodic "The Torch." --Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars From pub rock to stadium schlock...
    Disappointed in this one.Too much noise and not enough punk guitars pounding.I'd say to the Murphys: please leave the "anthems" up to the Pogues.Get DO OR DIE instead.

    5-0 out of 5 stars this CD rocks!!!
    This is the first Dropkick Murphys CD that I purchased and I loved it I'ive bought 3 more CDs by them and theirDVD which I highly recomend even if you are not a fan, but anyways DKM has become my favorite band of all time and i highly recomend this CD!!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars i grow weary
    this cd was my first dkm cd and at the time i loved it. then i got do or die and gang's all here. they made this cd look like the crap that it actually is. the songs are pretty much all the same except for the rocky road to dublin which is good but gets old fast. this cd gets old almost as fast as Flogging Molly did and that is pathetic. it almost seemed that this whole cd were just fillers. In this cd they really make it known that they are irish too but then in Boston who isnt irish. get do or die and gang's all here. if u like the irish music get some Real Mckenzies or Progues. dont succumb to the level of Flogging Molly and this cd.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pinkerton-esque
    Let me begin by saying that this review was written after Ozma's 2004 breakup. This was, to say the least, quite a heartbreak. And since there's been plenty of apt time to reflect upon Ozma's debut and sophomore albums [yes, the ones that sound like Weezer], I can now undoubtedly say that "Spending Time On The Borderline" is Ozma at its best. To put it plainly...a masterpiece. Admittedly, when I first picked this album up and popped it into my CD player, I was NOT impressed. Ozma could have broke up at that very moment and my response would have been, "Who cares...they're no good anymore." But as albums do have a tendency to grow on you, I decided to give this one a try. After all, what did I have to lose? Slowly and steadily certain tracks started to pop out at me..."Hey, 'Come Home Andrea' is one catchy song!" And, "Whoa, this Japanese song sure is poppy!" Then there are the deeper songs on the album, like "Eponine", "Bad Dogs", and "Game Over". They take a bit longer to love, but the wait is certainly worth it. To sum it all up, there's not a single track on this album that I wouldn't want to listen to, anywhere, anytime. Despite the mysterious tension that corrupted Brummel and Slegr, I, for one, know that they went out [no pun intended] on a good note with "Spending Time On The Borderline". Another "Pinkerton"? Perhaps. But only time will tell...



    *Ryan and José have started up a new band labeled "Yes Dear". Hopefully they can continue their largely unpublicized legacy. Check them out at myspace.com/yesdear

    2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
    I bought this album because I heard that Ozma was similar to Rooney and Weezer (bands I think are good).Ozma sure does have some similarities in this album (though they're probably more comparable to a Christian band like Reliant K), but that doesn't make the album any good.The whole album is very boring.There's just nothing special to it.I recommend that you pass on this.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Guitar Pop
    I think that Ozma is consistently one of the more "interesting" bands to come along.I do hear the Weezer influence, but at the same time it is filtered through a lot of other bands (Queen anyone?) as well as a lot of originality.The two part vocal melodies, instrumentation, tones, etc. are fully realized on this "studio" album.I like the whole Ozma catalog, but the production on this disc kicks all the other ones in the rear.As a guitarist, I have to hand it to Ryen.This is consistently one of the better riff orientated guitar albums that I have heard in a long time.He can also shred like a beast, but all his guitar lines support the song melodically and rhythmically.You can't ask for more from a guitarist.All the guitar is there for a reason.This is playing that I aspire to.It reminds me a lot of Brian May.

    As for the songs, "Your Name" is one of the most orginal ballads I have heard in a while.I love "Bad Dogs" even though most don't.The lead on that song is exceptional. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Having outgrown their Stray Cats and Green Day phases, the Living End join forces with Midnight Oil and Silverchair producer Nick Launay for an album that firmly establishes them as Australia's Great Rock Hope. Like late, great power-pop revivalists Material Issue (to whom the chorus of "Dirty Man" bears a more than passing resemblance), this Melbourne power trio fully justifies their plundering of past musical forms thanks to enthusiasm, chops, and songwriting talent. From the fist-in-the-air populism of its title track to the anthemic "Silent Victory" (which Launay gives the full Midnight Oil treatment), Roll On signals the Living End's readiness for an international pop overthrow. --Bill Forman ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars HOW AMAZING!
    My mom let me pick out a few CDs to buy to listen to on the way to Florida (we always drive... yep, about 20-something hours) and after stealing the first Living End CD from my dad, I just HAD to have this one because I was already a huge fan. This one definitely did not disappoint. "Roll On" is a great track (the verses just rock), and so is the followup "Pictures In The Mirror". Chris Cheney's (awesome!!!) guitar talent shows in "Carry Me Home", probably my favorite song on the album. "Blood On Your Hands" is just great and catchy, especially the chorus after a slower verse. The last two songs before the live version of "Prisoner Of Society" are AWESOME, "Astoria Paranoia" and "Uncle Harry". Uncle Harry is humorous, yet still good enough to be a Living End song, my second favorite on the album. And then the live version for Prisoner of Society is just fine with me, I loved that song on their first album so, why not have it on this one too? Most of the other songs on there are just as awesome too. If I had to pick one thing bad to say, it would be that there wasn't as much of the differing styles in Roll On than there was in The Living End. Like ska in "Trapped", and the jazz-like solos. BUT, this still deserves 5 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Aussie Rock Band Ever!!
    I bought this C.D. with a friend of mine four years ago, because we were desperate to hear more good-quality punk-rock music.So we took a guess and we bought this c.d., and wow did we guess right!!We would fight over the c.d. all the time, until of course we burned it so that each one would have our own copies.Wow!...I've never been a big fan of Green Day but I know that these guys are much MUCH (im not kidding, people, so sue me) better than Green Day.They play powerful punk-rock, theyre only a three-piece although they sound like 5 or 6 and they play with their hearts.The guitarist is maybe one of the best i've heard play, and the bass kicks ass as well.ditto for the drums.Four and a half years later, this is still one of my most favorite albums in rock.I don't get tired of these guys, and now, unfortunately, i lent it to someone else and that person has not given it back to me yet.So im really pissed off and i really want to kill him for not giving it back...oh well, at least i can buy the new album and NOT lend it to ANYONE AGAIN meanwhile.But after hearing so many mediocre punk-rock bands and punk-wannabes, and other low-budget bands, I have to say that nobody's better than these guys.And ive heard theyre even better live! So buy this album if you want to hear good punkrock music and you want to stop that britney spears plague or that usher plague and those other hip hop idiots.These guys will blow your mind."Pictures in the Mirror" is my favorite tracks as well as the energic "Roll On", and "Blood on Your Hands".All are very original and have different styles.These guys are 'all-around' musicians and they can play anything and play it good!This is good quality rock that will kick ass to all those fake rockers (Good Charlotte, Maroon 5, Fountains of Wayne, etc. etc.) that are on the 'hotlist' right now.LE will not decieve you.Take it from a punk-rock/alt-rock/indie-rock freak like me.



    5-0 out of 5 stars Just a Prisoner of the Great Guitar Society
    I normally do movie reviews but I've read so many record reviews lately I thought I'd try my hand at one. I'm fifty years old and most the albums I'd review are at least twenty years old so I'm hard pressed to find anything really recent to review.

    I'll start with one of the two best original albums I've heard in the past four years(the other is Fastball's The Harsh Light of Day). Roll On is unbelievable. I don't think there's been anything this solid since The Sex Pistols. Musicianship is one and good songs are another. After two terrific albums this mindboggling trio has made a third that is one of the hundred greatest rock albums ever. Not only is every song a gem but there are two killer videos included that will play on your computer(much to my surprise when I thought I was just going to play the audio tracks and I was treated to Pictures in the Mirror and the classic Prisoner of Society). These vids give you a good idea of the band's energy when on stage.

    The first time I saw them was at Slim's in 2001 During the first guitar break in the opening tune Roll On, Chris Cheney shouts out "Hello San Francisco, how the f**k are ya?". They then proceeded to blow the roof of the place. I hadn't seen anything so fresh, so jarring, so original, so g*d d**n good in many, many years.

    It goes without saying that Cheney is near genius on guitar. I've seen everybody; Coryell, Bream, Howe, Zappa, Gatton, Campbell, Fripp, Emmanuel, Zingg, Richards, Townsend, Garcia, Taylor, Buckethead, Nelson, Pass, McFadden(I don't mention Hendrix because I never had the supreme honor of seeing him). Cheney can do all of them and he can go from one to the other in the blink of an eye. I'm not going take anything away from the others(Coryell and McFadden are gods) but nobody can switch in middle of a phrase and the switch again through three different genres like Cheney. And this is in a high energy punk format. And he sings. And the songs are great. They range all over the place.

    Scott Owens sings too. He plays an upright bass at a milliom miles an hour or maybe it's a million and a half kilometers an hour. In any case, he can do that will he's standing on it. Yeah, standing on it. While it's upright!! I've seen them four times and Owen's role in the mix still mystifies me. He's a large reason, because of his bizarre riffs and amazing harmony, that this trio sounds fuller that most six piece bands.

    Unfortunely Travis Demsey no longer drums for the band, though his replacement does an admirable job. I've also seen many of the best drummers, Bozzio, Cobham, Bruford, Kay, Philips, Palmer and so on and so on. Without exception, Demsey is the greatest drummer I've ever seen. I'm happy to see that the band was able to continue when he decided to depart. Big shoes to fill.

    Roll On has been used for Espn's X Games and for Fahrenheit 911. So if you were wondering what that music was and you wanted to own it, this is the album. It's one of the few things out there worth the money you spend on it and it doesn't grow old. I just wish they would get to The States a little more often than once every three years because they're hot. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    On Dashboard Confession's fourth album, Christopher Carraba welcomes listeners back into his emotionally claustrophobic world, where relationships are minefields, women are brittle and self-absorbed, and every cloud has a pewter lining. But all this is only fodder for his runaway id, as he deconstructs every encounter, giving us evidence of the pain and betrayal that lurks behind every corner. Finding a home somewhere between the positive punk of Green Day, circa "Time of Your Life," and the stream-of-consciousness poetry of the early Counting Crows, this collection is more musically coherent than Dashboard Confessional's earlier albums. Gil Norton's production has taken the band to new heights, allowing the music to have as much grit, substance, and dynamics as the lyrics. The anxious expectorated sputum of "Am I Missing," is an existential assault on your very sanity, with its fretful drumming and spectral chorus, butthis album doesn't sound just that one apprehensive note; Carraba is equally at home with the sparse, acoustic ballad "Ghost of a Good Thing" and the folksy rocker "Carve Your Heart Out Yourself," which could have been lifted from a Buffalo Springfield album. By giving voice to the thoughts that go bump in the night, Carraba gives vulnerability and sincerity a good name again. --Jaan Uhelszki ... Read more

    This is the worst display of musical abilities i have ever heard in my entire life!The first three songs are exactly the same, and upon close inspection, ALL SUCK!!I thought my cd player was on repeat, but it turned out it was three "different" songs (the only noticeable difference was the titles).I would rather watch moss grow on a large tree than ever listen to this album ever again!PLEASE DONT BUY THIS CRAP!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I have become a Dashboard fan!!
    I love this album and Dashboard. Chris's voice is kind of strange, but it is good. It gives Dashboard a unique sound that no one else can quite match! : )

    the best tracks on this album are Hands Down, Rapid Hope Loss, As Lovers Go, Bend And Not Break, Ghost Of A Good Thing, Morning Calls, and Several Ways To Die Trying

    wow..half the album is on my best tracks list. i guess that is a testament to how good it is!!

    the only bad track is Carry This Picture. i would skip over it..because it gets boring after about the second verse.

    anyway, i would definetly advise you to buy this album, even if u have never listened to "emo" before. i hadn't listened to emo before either and now i love it!!

    Editorial Review

    Royal Crown Revue were between releases when the short-lived swing revival turned relative newcomers Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy into household names. Originally released in the preresurgence year 1996, this collection finds Eddie Nichols's charismatic crooning and his band's revved-up revivalism in fine form. RCR favorites like "Hey Pachuco!" and "Zip-Gun Bop," which were both featured on the band's 1992 indie debut, are given the widescreen treatment here by Van Halen producer Ted Templeman. Other highlights include a cover of "Beyond the Sea" and "Barflies at the Beach," a wild remake of Louis Prima's "Sing Sing Sing" where Nichols sings the virtues of Flipper-laden tuna and other natural wonders. (Note: "Barflies" was added for this 1998 reissue.) As fate would have it, the band that launched the whole swing resurgence never really profited from its success. But as Nichols's heroes would say, that's show biz. --Bill Forman ... Read more

    This is my favorite RCR cd. If you are a jazz fan in any way, shape, or form this cd is for you. It has a great combination of slow and fast songs, and their original pieces as well as awesome renditions of classics.... buy it today!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Zip Gun Bop!
    "Hey Pachucho" and "Zip Gun Bop" are already classics."Datin' With No Dough" was realeased on various compilations too, "Beyond The Sea" is a beautiful cover. With a jazzy feel and beautiful arrangements. This is a swinging masterpiece! Probably the best retro swing album ever!
    ...and Somewhere Louis Jordan is smilin'...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Swing Music, Swagger and All
    It's a shame that Royal Crown Revue never got more credit for the Neo-Swing explosion of the mid-90's. While the Cherry Popping Daddys, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Bryan Setzer Orchestra put Swing on the charts, Mugzy's Move perfectly captures the gritty essence of the time frame better than any other CD. As a personal testament to the flavor of this album my Dad, a true zoot-suit hepcat in WWII era, loves when I play this CD because it takes him back to his heyday.
    The visually impressive lyrics of Eddie Nichols, rich horn section and tight drum work of Daniel Glass pound out a hot collection of tunes with a swagger that proves Swing is more than a fashion, it's a way of life. ... Read more

    but just not that interesting, theres just nothing new here. They pretty much sound like a generic weezer, I really think thats the only way to describe them. But hey if you cant get enough of weezer and you need something to fill the gaps between album releases, then by all means pick up this generic masterpiece.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Green Day, Foo Fighters and most of all Weezer...
    This is a very good alt/rock band from Kansas. I hear Green Day,Foo Fighters and most of all Weezer.

    Maybe I'm biased, having grown up in Manhattan, KS, where everybody at the highschool wears UFB shirts, and the local bands cover their songs endlessly.Still, "This Will Be Laughing Week" is the best from this power trio.

    Anyone interested in Ultimate Fakebook might like Nada Surf or other Manhattan bands, like Podstar or Addictive Behavior. ... Read more

    This is a great cd, the music is more irish than the dropkicks and more punk than the pogues- I listened to this every day for weeks after i bought it

    It would be the understatement of the year if I said I loved Flogging Molly- They just are that good! I first heard them on the 10th Warped Tour CD and I fell in love. This album is dripping with emotion. Dave's writing is at its best here, and the band's energy is even present in this recording. There is a reason this band has the rep for being the best live band in the world. Buy this CD and you will find yourself chanting with the best of us at the next show

    4-0 out of 5 stars Singin' drunken lullabies
    Flogging Molly's second album, it is just as good.Granted, there are a few songs I usually skip over, but when they're good, they're great.

    My only complaints about this record are with the songs Rebels of the Sacred Heart, The Rare Ould Times, and The Son Never Shines.These songs seem to be lacking something.

    That said, the rest of the album is well worth the price.I particularly like Drunken Lullabies, What's Left of the Flag, If I Ever Leave this world Alive, Cruel Mistress, and Another Bag of Bricks.

    I highly reccomd this album to anyone who hates punk music as much as I do.It bands like this that go and make everything difficult and prevent me from tossing out blanket statement and stereotypes like, "punk music blows."Lousy Irish...

    So yeah, get this album whether or not you like punk music. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the most surprising cd's i've ever bought
    This cd continues to blow me away. Luckily, this was the first cd of the Bandits' I bought...if I bought either of the other 2, I wouldn't have wanted to buy another album of their's. Their first album is full of sub-par 3rd wave ska songs with bad lyrics, and their 3rd album is full of experimental, hard-to-define rock. On the other hand, this cd is almost perfect. They combine a few different types of music: punk, rock, reggae, ska, you name it. Every single track on this cd is solid, and some of the choruses are so catchy it will blow your mind. Listen to the chorus on "Status" and you will hear one of the best, catchiest choruses ever. Another great thing about this cd is the fact that it never really gets old. The singer has a distinct voice, the band has a pretty distinct sound, and you can tell they love to make music. The only flaw to speak of on this cd is the Bandits' strange desire to add another minute or two of feedback or weird sounds to the end of every song. That is irritating, but if you don't mind changing tracks at the end of every great song, then buy this. And it is worth it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Talent is Defined By Cd's Like This One
    Rx Bandits are a unique blend of many influences, most heavily ska.However I would not call RXB ska since they have various influences includingraggae and latin.This cd is more heavily leaned toward ska than anything else.This is also the more poppy of the RXB cd's.It also displays the amount of talent and versatility, that only RXB has.Check out "Analog Boy" and "Infection."

    3-0 out of 5 stars It's okay...
    This is a decent CD if you're looking from a has-been ska band turned straight up rock.I wouldn't say they've turned their back on legitimate ska, more graduated or evolved from it.I prefer their earlier releases.Still most def. a great band with amazing musicians and outstanding vocals

    I do not recommend this CD for anyone who is looking for a good ska CD. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars very cool
    awesome cd...a lot more ska than the "ska" bands out today.
    this cd will top any less than jake album, any reel big fish
    album and any mustard plug record. This release can even be
    compared to streetlight manifesto's "everything goes numb,"
    catch 22's "keasby nights", and (the best) suicide machine's
    "destructuion by definition. drinking for eleven, and contraband
    are the best songs. have fun!

    4-0 out of 5 stars hello
    I think it's the best Mad Caddies record with Ducks and Covers. I'll just review it song by song.

    1. Drinking for 11 : Slow reggae song. I habitually don't like reggae but this one is sooo good. I like the horns in it. 10/10

    2. Contraband : A fast punk-rock song. It's not long but still good and is not pop. Exactly what I like. 8/10

    3. Villains : One of the best song on the record. The horn intro is one of the best I ever hear. After starts a fast punk song than the horns and the ska part come again. It's so good. Again, it's not pop. 10/10

    4. Silence : One of the best song again. It's a real cool ska song (style of The Joust or Medium Unwell on DAC) with an heavy chorus punk-core style with screamings. It's different but excellent. 10/10

    5. Just One More : Very different from what they habitually do. A kind of reggae mixed with latin music and a punk-horn ending. It's strange to explain buit it sound damn good! 9/10

    6. Day By Day : A simple punk song with some element of pop in it, but not too much, so it's ok. I like it, it's not excellent, but still great. 8/10

    7. Leavin : Another very good song. The horn part is really cool and entertaining and the lyrics are cool even if they are not poetry with big metaphors in it. 10/10

    8. Rockupation : Probably the worst song on the record. It's a king of pop-punk song. Yeah, you probably discovered while reading my review that I hate pop-punk. Well it's true. But the lyrics are very good, I like the subject.6/10

    9. Last Breath : One of my favorite song. Don't know how to call that style but it's real cool. The chorus make you want to jump everywhere. 10/10

    10. Spare Change? : A good reggae song. Not the best they've done but still great. 8/10

    11. Riot : A good fast punk-rock song about politics. Well, the lyrics are not real good but the music is. It's good, because we can see that they can come to poppier style without losing their more "hardcore" style. 8/10

    12. 10 West : A CLASSIC! An excellent ska song. It is really happy with excellent horn parts. Even if it was the only song on the record, I would've buy it. 10/10

    13. Good Intentions : I don't really care about this one. It's not as bad as Rockupation but it juste didn't catche my attention. 7/10

    14. Wet Dog : Very different. The guitar riff is really good and with the horns on the chorus, it's just superb. 10/10

    15. Game Show : A simple ska song for the ending. Definately not a classic, but still real good and entertaining. 8/10

    Well, this record would be more 4.5/5 but I can't so I put 4/5 because it doesn't deserve perfect score cause of some not real good songs such as Rockupation and Good Intentions. But I'm not telling it's a bad album. You must be a little bit more open-minded than juste "punk-ska" because there is muche more here and some people don't like that. But, it is, in my opinion, a chef d'oeuvre.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Mad Caddies Album...best Album...Period
    This is by far the best album I own. From the opener Drinking For Eleven to Just One More to Track 15 every song seems to flow together. This is one of the only CDs I can listen to without skipping through a single track. Mad Caddies musical genius is shown through how they can mix ska, punk, reggae, and Latin music into one album and make it sound like a brand new musical genre. Buy this album and you will bring it everywhere with you...you won't be without it. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Chicago’s Alkaline Trio rip off more playful emo punk on Good Mourning, as Matt Skiba’s profane poetry yields another set of sad but very fun songs. The band’s overt pop instincts stayed were muted on past albums, notably their debut, Goddamnit!, butMourning isn’t nearly so abrasive. Draped in silky production, the band’s painful odes to lost love and bittersweet joy lose some edge (witness the toothless opener, "This Could Be Love"). Still, the band has rarely been tighter, and the likes of "We’ve Had Enough" have enough juice to fuel mosh pits throughout the land. Skiba can make you feel bad about yourself no matter how good your mood, a talent that only true emo masters wield with such authority. --Matthew Cooke ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Iceland's answer toLimp Bizkit,Korn, andLinkin Park,Quarashi's rock-rap-industrial hybrid usually makes for bad rap and even worserock, but the mix works on Jinx for reasons unknown. The group's FredDurst rap-metal shtick ("Stick 'Em Up," "Weirdo") is a bit tired, but itsBeastieBoys-style eclecticism ("Mr. Jinx," "Baseline") flips a catchy cornucopia ofhorn, guitar, and xylophone samples. Certainly, when Quarashi pull out all oftheir experimental stops on "Tarfur," a percussion-heavy funk track that'srecorded in Icelandic, or "Dive In," a techno ballad crooned by the band'sjack-of-all-trades Hössi Olafsson, the results are fun. Move overBjörk andSigur Rós,there's a new innovator in town. --Dalton Higgins ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    From the Runaways to the Donnas, the garage has served as a safe haven for women who would rather be rock stars than sleep with them. The latest quartet of girls to strap on electric guitars, throw on a pair of scuffed-up Converse sneakers, and howl like maniacs comes from the small town of Robertsfors, Sweden. Like the finest work of fellow Swedes the Hives and Division of Laura Lee, Sahara Hotnights' brash debut album runs exclusively on heavy riffs and even heavier attitude. They roll out the hairy '70s punk guitars for "Alright Alright (Here's My Fist, Where's the Fight?)," talks hair-yanking trash on "Only the Fakes Survive," and does a bang-up early Blondie tribute with "Keep Up the Speed." Explosive, indeed. --Aidin Vaziri ... Read more
