5-0 out of 5 stars Its a Great Beat
I grew up on the English Beat and they are still one of my favorite bands today.There is something about the ska from that era that really appeals to me.My first exposure to them was in the early '80s when my brother was in college and the Beat were a college radio staple.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is the beat you're looking for..
Definitely could've been another song or two added to this best of, but what a brilliant collection. I can't keep it out of my cd player.
5-0 out of 5 stars Beat This: The Best of the English Beat
This album is great package, it has most of the songs a fan of the English Beat could want.Durring high school I listened to a great deal of ska, roots reggae, 1st, 2nd and 3rd wave ska from England, the U.S. and Jamaica.I saw some English Beat but other than obscure record collectors its not something the average record store keeps in stock.

Editorial Review

General Public's debut is arguably the ska supergroup's best work. Fresh out of the English Beat, Dave Wakeling recruited vocal partner Ranking Roger, as well as bassist Horace Panter (the Specials), keyboardist Mickey Billingham (Dexy's Midnight Runners), and veteran sax man Saxa for this set of shiny pop that is virtually all as infectious as the album's Top 40 hit, "Tenderness." Sure, the English Beat's best grooves found their way into the Fine Young Cannibals, but Wakeling and Roger's breathless vocals and undeniable hooks still shine on this undervalued album. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ready for the reissue treatment
This is just a really awesome CD and I'm suprised it hasn't been given the re-issue treatment as of yet.All The Rage was released in late 1984 or early 1985.The US singles were "Tenderness" and "Never You Done That." The album itself contained a lot of different sounding songs.General Public toyed with reggae ala UB40 style on the song "General Public." I enjoy the whole album but really like songs like "Anxious," "Where's The Line," and "Are You Leading Me On?"There are some really great remixes to some of the songs on this album, I hope that it is given the reissue treatment soon.
3-0 out of 5 stars TENDERNESS
1984 Brit pop group dabbling in funk and ska yielded one great song; "Tenderness", a jingly piano-driven, bassoon enhanced, unabashedly sweet, catchy song that contains maybe the most representative line of '80s suppressed left wing agenda, - "I open my mouth and out pops something spiteful.", it rises above the hyperactive vocals and dull routine funk of the other songs, although the song, "General Public", adds Middle Eastern and progressive elements in a grandiose album closing. Band member, Ranking Roger (vocals, keyboards), has put out at least one fine Motown influenced solo album, and Clash guitarist Mick Jones, plays some rough guitar on some of the tracks. The band needs to lean more towards it's tender side than it's frantic funk.

4-0 out of 5 stars Catchy and enjoyable
Nothing spectacular here, just a thoroughly enjoyable pop/new wave/synth/whatever offering from an outfit that probably deserved more attention.Definitely worth getting. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Remastered Version Has Great Sound
This new re-mastered version of the classic "Exodus" by Bob Marley boasts truly improved sonics over the original.If you like Reggae,you can't go wrong with this release of the classic Reggae masterpiece. On the other hand,Time magazine called this record " the most important LP release of the 20th century." Give me a break.The writer must have been smoking some pretty good reefer when she wrote that. For a while it was considered ultra-chic for white people to listen to Reggae, hence the hyperbolic Time review of this record.I'll skip the Reggae "deep philosophy" and the seriously spaced out and comic book Rastafarian religion ( I mean honestly, these guys claim that the late Ethiopian dictator Haile Selassie, was God, the Creator of the Universe...now, isn't that silly?) please, and just listen to the music.And on that level, this is good stuff when the mood is right, and the sound is excellent, tight, bright, good bass, all around a great, maybe even timeless, Reggae record.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exodus - true album of the century
The story behind Exodus is worthy of a book - in fact there is a book on the making of Exodus. This and the follow-up 'Kaya' were recorded and assembled in London in the 18 months following the attempted assassination of Marley in December 1976. The first side of the album (old-school vinyl fans know what I mean) is pure revolutionary reggae rock: Natural Mystic, So Much Things to Say, Heathen, Guiltiness, and Exodus. Drop-dead master reggae powered by the brother team of Aston 'Family Man' Barrett on bass and Carlton Barrett on drums.
4-0 out of 5 stars Overated but yes good.
I am a huge Bob Marley fan and always have been for about 20 years now, but listening to Exodus doesn't give me the same thrill as of the over albums such as Uprising, Natty Dread and Survival.

Editorial Review

The beat that got a generation dancing and brought ska back into the public eye. Produced by Elvis Costello, then still a boy wonder himself, the album built on the sound of the Specials' first two singles, and gave the world its first extended look at Two Tone. Inspired writing and arranging (much of it down to founder Jerry Dammers) with Terry Hall as the laconic front man made for a perfect combination, the riddim of ska and the speed of punk. As a testament to its power, two decades haven't lessened its impact. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Two tone ska classic.The perfect blend of strong song writing, fun, ska and touch of punk energy
When this album came out most punx I knew were totally into it.I know I was.There'd been that music scene of the B 52's, BLONDIE, ELVIS COSTELLO, JOE JACKSON and TALKING HEADS.Punk had exploded onto the scene as well, of course, The SEX PISTOLS, The CLASH, The DEAD KENNEDYS, BLACK FLAG, CIRCLE JERKS, BAD BRAINS.Punk had always had some sorta connection to reggae, BAD BRAINS being the quintessinal creator of sublime punk as well as non-sleepy reggae songs.
5-0 out of 5 stars Pressure Drop
Well I'm not a kid, but M. Fantino, The Specials didn't influence The Clash on Pressure Drop. Toots and the Maytals did, seeing as how Pressure Drop is actually a Maytals song, not a Clash song. Just a heads up.
5-0 out of 5 stars Err, ummm, Yeah...
It irks me a little when people actually like bands like No Doubt and Sublime. It infuriates me that no one knows that the Specials could veritably rip all these new school California pansies new ones. The Specials are my all time favorite SKA band, and this is hands down the best album from them. It's got that stunning blend of punk, reggae and funk that no one has really been able to copy succesfully. Everyone I have revealed this album seems to adore it. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Leave it to a British band to combine Latin rhythms, Jamaican mento, and ska beats, all dressed in retro zoot suits. The group is fronted by Cuban vocalist Ben Billy and London-born singer Nathan "Natty Bo" Lerner, with Jamaican trumpeter Eddie "Tan Tan" Thornton, Japanese saxophonist Megumi Mesaku, and Havana bassist Ray Crespo. For the most part, the music is a surprising melange ofBeny More-type vocals and upbeat ska rhythms made famous by The Skatalites, as evidenced by the snappy instrumental "Jezebel," the hypnotizing mid-tempo "Soy Campesino," and the humoroustitle track. Also included are the Colombian Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars "Ay Caramba " is Good!
While traveling from Marrakech to Agadir my wife had the Moroccan radio station on, we noticed that the song playing was in English with a Latin beat, after the song was over the DJ announced it as "SKA CUBANO", what impressed me was that the singer sounded like the late Cuban singer Beny More! Later that night while staying in the Agadir Beach Club we heard the song again. We approach the DJ and he informed us that it was a recording from an English man and a Cuban singer who called themselves the SKA CUBANO. I was amazed when I heard the remaining songs it was fascinating. We danced all night to the music, and all the people seem to like the sound. Cumbia, Jamaican Ska, Jazz, and Cuban music altogether sounded great. My favorites are Soy Campesino, Tabu, and Istanbul. All the songs are very good and the back up band is outrageously good. Buy it and experience the excellent combination of this CD. My Mediterranean girl insisted that I write a review.Check it out on the web-site and listen to the songs.

5-0 out of 5 stars An exciting blend of Caribbean musical cultures
Ay Caramba! is the musical creation of a UK/Cuba collaboration called Ska Cubano, which blends the bouncy ska beat that once took Jamaica by storm in the 1960s with Cuban cultural music. The result is an album with "hand-clapping" songs, rousing rhythm, and a diverse mixture of lively styles. An exciting blend of Caribbean musical cultures, Ay Caramba! is not to be missed. Tracks include Soy Campesino (3:42); Tabu (3:32); Oye Company Juan (3:35); No Me Desesperes (3:35); Big Bamboo (2:59); Tungarara (3:50); Cachita (4:31); Istanbul Not Constantinople (2:34); Marianao (3:51); Chispa tren (3:22); Jezebel (3:20); Bobine (4:56); Cumbia en Do Menor (4:41); and the title piece, Ay Caramba! (3:02).
5-0 out of 5 stars A musical style that should have been
The fact that the label this artist records on is associated with Putumayo is what initially drew me to it. One listen to the samples and I knew I had to add this to my collection.

Editorial Review

Fuelled by the ska of Prince Buster ("Madness"), and inspired by the insanity of British music, right from the start Madness were a quintessentially English band. Two-tone more by association than fact, they came to the fore at the same time as the Specials, with a ska beat, a pop heart, and a lunatic smile (who else would update "Swan Lake" in such an unorthodox way?). While the title track lives on beyond them, there were plenty of other gems here, including "Night Boat to Cairo" and "My Girl." The Nutty Sound was infectious as measles, but a lot more fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars They went..................one step beyond!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey you!!!!!!!!!, lately Madness have come to my mind due to young advertisers for alcoholic beverages that are currently trying to introduce good taste in music to the depressing likes youth have in this days in Mexico (or maybe this advertisersare snob and try to impress ignorant fools i dont know), one of the first memories i have in music in my life is definitelly with Madness, actually i think it was the first one, before Beatles, before Zep, before Presley before Kiss or any other artist. I should have been like seven or eight years old when i liked to watch the Madness videos that were transmited saturday morning between cartoons, before all that space were filled with advertising as today, i liked that band when i was a child and i love them today cuts like "just another day" , "nigth boat to Cairo", "Michael Caine" ,"my girl" and of course "one step beyond"are timeless classics , band such as The Mighty Mighty Bostons and many others cant deny Madness influence they were plenty funny and genious, One Step Beyond is the debut album actually neither themselves were capable to achieve a bigger sucess after this one but the roots of ska punk are there untill the end of time.
5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing disappointing here..
I remember first listening to this and loving every single second of it. I just listened to it about 10 minutes ago and loved every single second of it even harder.
5-0 out of 5 stars One Step Beyond Rules!
Buy this CD at any price. You will not regret it. It's melodic, fun, and timeless. One Step Beyond is their best. I don't think they ever repeated the magic that is on this CD, but their second release "Absolutely" album is very good as well, and should not be overlooked. I think I may even like it more than The Specials first effort. Is that blasphemy? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Funky Kingston
Kingston, Jamaica? No, mon, that'd be Kingston Ontario. As in Canada. As in wind chill, blizzards, and block heaters. And trust me, when Toots Hibbert sang about a "Funky Kingston" there was nobody getting the two towns mixed up. Yet as unlikely as it may seem - especially given the fact that Bedouin Soundclash played among all the trendy screamo bands on this summer's Warped tour - these Canuck kids do the reggae like they stepped straight outta Trenchtown.

This band is the fourth and in my opinion best project tomas kalnoky has been involved with. This album is one of the only albums i can listen to in its entirety and not skip a track. i know the lyrics to every song and some of the beats in a way. its a great album.
5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST OWN SKA ALBUM
I've had this CD for 3 years now and I never get sick of it. I've seen Streetlight Manifesto in concert twice and they're even better live then on CD. I can't get over this awesome CD. If you think this CD is great then also check out and try to find a band called Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution. It was a side project Tomas did before he formed SM. They even did the song "Here's to Life". Also check out the re-release of Keasbey Nights the SM version. It's the same album as the Catch 22 release but it's done by SM and sounds a LOT better and some songs have extra lyrics to them.

These guys are amazing musicians; perfect together - a modern Simon and Garfunkel.This album is pretty good on it's own, basically the best modern rock out there, if you'll call it that.It's hard to call it anything because these guys are totally unique; it's a sound I've been lookin for but haven't found in other artists.Even better are there next two albums, and more diverse.

4-0 out of 5 stars Their pop album (4.5 stars)
At the time they released Special Beat Service in 1982, the English Beat appeared to be on the verge of a breakthrough. While their first album, I Just Can't Stop It, was a ska classic, and their second album, Wha'ppen?, was very deep into reggae, Special Beat Service toned down those genres in favor of British pop. Dave Wakeling's vocals were more compassionate than ever before and their songs were arguably their strongest overall. However, internal dissention would ultimately break up the English Beat and although several of the band members would later find success with General Public and The Fine Young Cannibals respectively, the excellent songs and performances on Special Beat Service make you wonder how far they could have gone if they were able to keep it together.
5-0 out of 5 stars FEELS GREAT!
It's really hard to keep still when listening to this cd. I've owned it on vinyl, cassette, and cd over the years and it's always put me in a great mood. Friends have always asked about it when they heard it, and subsequently purchased it. Buy it, you won't be dissapointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Save It for Later is perfect and we're just lucky for the rest
Save it for Later is still one of the perfect songs of all time (though the extended versions from later are even better).There's some other great stuff off this album, like Ackee 1-2-3, and I Confess, but the whole album is solid.Actually, all of the Beat albums are solid; if you like any of their songs, I recommend the rest of their catalog to you.But Save it for Later is a special gem, so I recommend this album first. ...

Editorial Review

Toots Hibbert is often compared to Otis Redding, and since Hibbert was greatly influenced by classic American R&B as well as the music of his own Baptist church, that comparison is certainly apt. But while he owes a debt to the intense, high-octane vocal approach of Redding, there is also a great deal of similarity between Toots and the great James Brown. In many ways and at roughly the same time, Hibbert did for Jamaican soul what Brown did for its American cousin--he made it funky and Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not the Best Collection
While this is a very good collection, the double CD "Time Tough" includes all the tracks here, but does a better job of covering the whole Toots spectrum, and the sound quality is quite a bit better. So while I agree with the positive reviews here, you get a lot more bang for the buck with "Time Tough". And TT gives you a lot more of his latter work, when love and spirituality infused his work and raised reggae to a higher plane. Go on and spend the extra $10, you won't be sorry (like I was when I bought this then still had to go out and buy "Time Tough" to get a sampling of ALL the Toots and the Maytals I came to love through buying most of his LPs in the 70's and 80's.

5-0 out of 5 stars Toots & the Maytals Rule!
I was lucky enough to see both Bob Marley & the Wailers and Toots & the Maytals on the same double bill at the Beacon Theater in NYC back in the '70's. Until then I had heard neither. While Bob Marley was phenomenal. He did more with simply folding his arms than most rockers do flailing all around the stage & smashing guitars. But the true revelation was Toots & the Maytals. They didn't stop until they rocked the house. Listening to this "Best of" collection brings that night home to me. If you've never experienced Toots & the Maytals, buy this collection, and give it a listen. You won't stop dancing and swaying. I promise.

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Unique
You will not find another band like Slightly Stoopid. You can put them in the same category as bands like 311 and Sublime, but they have a style all their own. And as any person with a good taste in music will tell you, their style is impossible to hate. I've played this CD for a person who ONLY listens to country and she loves it. It's a brilliant mix of ska, reggae, and punk. I also highly recommend their newer CD Closer To The Sun. Get this CD if you want your summer to have the perfect soundtrack.

4-0 out of 5 stars good reggea surfers band
its a really good ,band that remind me of sublime, BUT WHY THE SONG KILL ME DEEP INSIDE IS SO MUCH BETTER ALIVE ,THAN THE ONE OF THE ALBUM

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything You Need
Slightly Stoopid is one of my favorite bands, and their album, Everything you Need is definatley my favorite album.It is an upbeat mix of reggae and punk. This CD is fresh, the band plays more reggae and less punk now but they hold true to their punk roots. Their previous CD was an acoustic only, which was a nice change from the usual loud instruments and rock star attitude. One of their songs is repeated on their acoustic CD and on Everything you Need. The song, Wiseman is very different when listened to plugged and unplugged. With the different instrumental accompaniments, the singer, Miles Doughty's, voice is really showcased well. It is hard to describe his voice, though it is very unique. It has a calming effect. I have personally seen them live and they put on a spectacular show. When you listen to the lyrics, you think all they talk about are drugs and having a good time. But if you listen closer, the lyrics are about more than just that. They talk about brotherhood and love from a different angle. Their fun reggae rhythm and rhymes mixed with their upbeat punk style and imagery make them an interesting band to listen to. I cannot wait to see what the future holds in store for the band. As I said before, I have seen them live and I will not miss them if they come through town again. The best way I can describe the band is 311 sound of music with more of Sublime's lyrics, and the Rancids hair. My second favorite album is their newest one it is on the top of my shopping list. ...

When I first bought in with the out crowd I was very dissapointed. It is nothing like Losing Streak. It's a pretty good cd, but it's not less than jake. There is way to much guitar and not enough horns.

3-0 out of 5 stars The self-proclaimed "true fans" are overrating this album... we're now "In With the Pop Crowd", a.k.a. the 14 to 16-year-olds.
I don't know, guys.On track number three, I think something burst in my head and forced my arm to spasm towards the eject button.I put it on my shelf for a while, and now it's been a few months, and I listened to it again.I still think it's their worst album yet.I don't hate them for wanting to change their sound, but they didn't have to go to this extreme.Read on, though, I promise to not totally snub the album.There are a few decent songs on here.I'm not giving up on them yet, but I am a little annoyed with LTJ right now.
4-0 out of 5 stars Best Album Yet
This is, by far, Less Than Jakes best album Since 'Losing Streak'.The albums released between 'Losing Streak' and 'In With the Out Crowd' were, dare I say, boring.Every song on this album has a different sound, but, at the same time, Less Than Jake manages to stay true to their ska roots.Bravo LTJ! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars bout damn time
this isa killer killer killer album..i can't use the word killer enough bout this album...it's about time a band did some classic skinhead reggae....even you don't consider yourself a "reggae" fan...fans of early 60's soul and r&b should definatelly check this out...afterall it's soul and r&b that influenced all early reggae...this album will be a classic!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dirty whusaba? Forget catagorization and just enjoy the music
This is a great CD from a great band. These guys get it ... their focus is making great music and they don't care about whether they are following the corporate/commercial success formula.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fireball Music!
I am 55, white, and middle-class.I hardly know what Ska is, let alone "skinhead reggae."And when I first picked up this disk, I thought, "What do these WHITE BOYS think they're pretending to be?"But this stuff *EXPLODES* with pure energy.Brothers and sisters, if you can listen to this music and not move your body, you need to call 911, because you ain't breathin', Jackson!" ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The REAL Keasbey Nights
I loved Keasbey Nights when it was released in 1998. It was a GREAT album and everytime I listened to it I loved it more and more and more. Then Tomas left and Catch 22 lost their sound. When Tomas left Catch 22 their sound left as well. Then Tomas formed Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution which only released one EP. Then after that Streetlight Manifesto was formed. Everything Goes Numb was the start of a great movement. Then in 2006 I heard word of SM redoing Keasbey Nights which puzzled me a bit but I couldn't wait. Then it finally came out and of course I bought it. Right from the start you can notice that this is not the same album at all. This album is like taking crude oil and refining it into gasoline. Catch 22's Keasbey Nights was crude oil and SM's Keasbey Nights is gasoline. This is the way Keasbey Nights was supposed to sound. Don't listen to others who say "oh this is the same damn CD as Catch 22's there's no difference here I waisted $$$ on this damn thing" f*ck them this CD is not the same. The only thing the same here is the title of the CD, the order of the songs, and the names of the songs. Besides that this is a completely different CD with some added lyrics to some of the songs. I guarantee you won't be disappointed by buying this. I sure as hell know I wasn't. I almost threw out the old Keasbey Nights after buying this it is that good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Obviously clueless.
I've read some reviews of this album that say it's an exact duplicate of the original Keasbey Nights.These people obviously either don't listen well, or they don't understand music.There are so many differences, and I still find some when I listen to the album for the 100th time.The horn lines are nearly all more intricate, the bass on this album is absolutely astounding, there are lyrical alterations, and the solos are beautifully done.
5-0 out of 5 stars dont fix whats not broken
to the guy who said he wished they would have changed more things...why? i can almost assure you if they changed anything extremely noticable people wouldnt like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Non Stop Fun!
First released in 1980, The English Beat's (known in the UK simply as The Beat they added the name English to their moniker to avoid confusion with a California based also band called The Beat) "I Just Can't Stop" it is not only possibly the single greatest album of the later 70's/early 80's ska revival, it is one of the greatest album of the late 70's/early 80's punk/new wave scene.
5-0 out of 5 stars This IS the orginal complete album
As has already been noted by one other reviewer, the original release of "I Just Can't Stop It" did not include "Tears of a Clown" or "Ranking Full Stop".These were added to the original U.S. release of the record due to the fact that these UK singles were otherwise unavailable in the U.S.Seeing as how they are compiled on multiple North American releases and were never supposed to be on the record, releasing the original UK version of the album on CD is perfectly justified.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ska done right - this album is so addictive!!!
I'll be honest here - I used to HATE ska. I would go to my local concert hall to see some local musicians and there would ALWAYS be horrible ska bands playing (which is why I hated ska). I had just about given up on the genre when, to my surprise, I hear a sample of The English Beat's "Mirror In The Bathroom" on Coldcut's "Journeys By DJ: 70 Minutes of Madness" (also an excellent album) and was immediately intrigued. Lo' and behold, after I got this album, it was amazing! I never knew ska could be so fun and interesting! Every song here is great and all of them are pretty memorable - everything about them is fantastic. The vocals are very well done here as Dave Wakeling has a very appealing voice. The lyrics are also pretty interesting to listen to as well as catchy - "Mirror In The Bathroom" is but one of many songs that'll get stuck in your head. Musically it sounds like most other ska bands but with a little new wave and college rock thrown in. It's also very well-produced for an album that came out in 1980. Overall this is an album that most people will LOVE, not jsut ska fans. Absolutely recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good live stuff
This cd is def worth picking up.Winter Tour '05-'06 is a nice live mix of their old and new albums.In addition, the boys get some horns and harmonica into the action on stage.Slightly Stoopid sounds just as good, if not better, live compared to in the studio. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Reggae albam you'll ever find!
It has two classic cd's put together and fits in with some of the best reggae artists ever such as Bob Marley, Sublime, and so on.

5-0 out of 5 stars great stuff
Classic Toots!This is as good as it gets from the old Jamaican reggae. Don't pass on this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
Toots is like a Jamaican Marvin Gaye and James Brown rolled into one. His voice is so real and every note is sung like his life depends on it. How you can listen to this album and not want to shake your a** is beyond me. It is virtually impossible to be sad and listen to this album at the same time. Always an uplifting experience even when he's singing about being broke or being in jail. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I'm Impressed!
I'm sure you've heard, Long Beach Dub Allstars is not Sublime.In some songs there is little bit of the Sublime style, but just a tiny bit; I didn't expect them to be Sublime either.I expected something totally different from what LBDA really is.And I like them alot more than I thought I would.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome album
When you buy this, don't expect quite the same as Sublime, but it's still awesome in its own right. Some songs are remniscent of Sublime but there's a lot more dub and reggae. I can't say the singer is quite as good as Bradley but he's still quite good and I love listening to this album on my ipod. It's worth the money just for "Sunny Hours," "Listen to DJ's," and "Lonely End" but the other songs are awesome too and this CD is a hell of a lot better than 99% of the crap they play on the radio. This is one of my newest favorite bands in its own right.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pathetic
I Bought this cd beacause there first cd right back was great.

Editorial Review

Virtually an institution after a decade on the scene, Boston's finest ska band continues to deliver an extreme adrenaline rush on its fifth album, which was produced by Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade. The metal edge in the Bosstone's particular brand of skacore comes further to the forefront this time, while songs such as "Noise Brigade" and "Royal Oil" rank among the catchiest they've recorded. And Nate Albert continues to carve out a new role for the guitar in ska-influenced music. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars This band was WAY better when they were young and hungry
I think it is very sad what happened to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. They started off with the best intentions and sadly something fell apart in the machine. Their late fan-base of young kids and main-streamers is quite likely clueless (no pun intended) to the gem this band once was in their youth. For a few short moments, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones were a band synonomous with good times.
2-0 out of 5 stars What happened?
What the ... happened to these cats? They use to be so awesome. Remember their actually brilliant jamz like Toxic Toast and just about that whole Question The Answers album days. That's the MMB I once remembered. The packed ampetheater days at the warped tour with other awesome bands like Rancid, Sick Of It All,...etc. Those times rocked. I seen these guys 2 years ago and they didn't even have that energy that they once did. It was a pretty boring show unlike the first time I saw them. I think Dickey and the boys need to hang it up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant !
Not just one of the greatest albums by the Bosstones, but one of the best albums I have (and I have many). Great fast-paced musicianship mixed with very intelligent lyrics. Moreover, many songs have a great moral, not mindless drivel. "Break So Easy" and "Numbered Days" immediatley jump to mind as just a few of the great songs on this CD. I can't imagine anybody not liking this album, or really not liking any of their albums. Great band! ... Read more
