Album: Let’s Rock
Label: Side One Dummy
Purchase: Smart Punk
Release Date: October 24, 2006
MxPx; it would be nearly impossible to say something that hasn’t already been said about this band. Beginning their legacy back in 1992, these musical pioneers have written and released hundreds of songs, yet some still remain unheard. Let’s Rock is a compilation of rare and tracks compiled over the last few years since their last b-sides album, Let It Happen.
It’s understatement to say this record spans the bands’ different stages. Some songs contain the commercially successful sound of The Ever Passing Moment, and others really do rock as hard as the band ever has. Mike’s vocals contrast from screaming to swooning but never lose the clarity and passion I’ve grown accustomed to in their music.
Mike (bass, vocals), Tom (guitars), & Yuri (drums) have again crafted another welcomed addition to the MxPx discography. If you’re looking for a ‘new record,’ wait for the follow-up to Panic. While this is a record truly put out for MxPx fans, it’s a solid release that could easily win over new audiences…what rock have you been under if you’ve never heard MxPx?
