First of all, I think this album is amazing...Maybe not the most original album in its genre, but I'm pretty pissed off at all the people saying "Ohh, this isn't punk, its crap"...well screw that...can you sing like these guys, can you write lyrics like these guys (or any related band)..NO! It may not be your style of music, but don't hold that against the band. So stop trying to criticize the band for putting THEIR influences, and role models into their music. And for everyone who says this isn't punk...stop being 13 years old for once and think about what punk really is and how it has evolved. Punk is a term that was coined by bands like the sex pistols and the ramones (if you will)...it was a F*** you style and rebelliousness. It was NEVER a classification of music until it hit mainstream and people needed a way to "genrenize" it. SO...before all of you go criticize ANY band for their own original work, think about what you are saying...Anyway, back the CD...sure it is classified by the "ignorant" people as pop-punk...but that is OK, I think where these guys are taking music is incredible and thanks to Blink 182, Fall out boy, New Found glory, AND Good Charlotte...thats right I said it...I think its all amazing and I will be a follower of revolutionists like these guys regardless of what I think music SHOULD be sounding like....DAMNIT PEOPLE WAKE THE HELL UP!

As a die-hard MxPx fan ever since I picked up "Life in General" so many years ago. . .this record made me want to cry at first listen.
I don't want you to think I'm bashing Mike, Tom and Yuri because really I'm not. I just think that this is the worst thing to come out of the studio from the boys in years. It bums me out because MxPx has been doing this for over a decade, yet I think that "The Young and the Hopeless" by relative newcomers Good Charlotte is a better album. I see "Before Everything & After" as a weak imitation of that record.
First off, let's deal with the prelude and epilogue to the record: little sound bites entitled "Before" and "After," respectively. Why these are on the disc boggles my mind. They are little awkward, silly displays that shouldn't be there.
The first real track, "Play it Loud," is just an odd song. Once again, I think of Good Charlotte, because it's as if they're shooting for a punk anthem not unlike "Anthem." But once again they fail at playing GC's game. Well, it's like Michael Jordan playing baseball.
The only good acoustic song I have ever heard MxPx play is when I see them perform "Buildings Tumble" unplugged in concert. That absolutely rocks. "Quit Your Life" is just bad, and all the worse because it's coming on an MxPx album. Why do they feel the need to look to other bands making the mainstream punk pop scene?? I don't know! Mike, Tom, Yuri. . .that's not your scene!
I want to point out some high points on the album. "Well Adjusted" is a great punk rawk track. Classic. "First Day of the Rest of Our Lives" is another one. I'm also a fan in particular of "You Make Me, Me."

Ok, I admit I haven't bought this CD yet, but I'm not exactly looking forward to it. I've only listened to the song samples, and its really dissapointing. The Rennaissance EP was GREAT!!! I thought they were on a comeback, but so far this one really bums me out. Maybe because I'm in my late 20s and not in the key demographic anymore, but it almost sounds like they've abandoned their signature sound and they're trying to sound younger... Mike's voice has gotten more polished than the last album, and that's not good. Their starting to sound like more like their imitators than themselves.
But then I can't stand Good Charlotte and A New Found Glory, so if you like that stuff you may enjoy this album. If you liked the more seasoned/gritty style of their last album on Fat, you will probably be as disappointed as I was.
If you haven't heard The Renaissance EP, Ever Passing Moment, or Teenage Politics, I would recommend those by far over this one. Hopefully there will be some redeemable songs on the rest of the album when I get it. And don't NOT get it, guys, this is MxPx we're talking about here!!

This album is MxPx's best reccord yet. It should satisfy both hardcore MxPx fans, and new listeners alike. Most of the album is pretty much Punk with a little bit of Alternative. The song MxPx played on the Diet Pepsi comercial, Well Adjusted, is on this CD, it has to be MxPx's best song yet. Alot of the songs have a more poppish rock flavor than normally, It's Alright, Everything Sucks, On the Outs, and Don't Walk Away; sounding alot like the Ataris or New Found Glory. However, hardcore punks won't be left dissapointed with such hard rocking songs as Play it Loud, Well Adjusted, Broken Hearted, and The Capitol. This CD has a good mix of styles, and was excellently layered as there is many more instruments than normal. We find Mike playing rather bluesy riff on a slide guitar in Kings of Hollywood, and MxPx's first acoustic song: Quit Your Life, as well as a ton of keyboard, orchestra strings, and a bit of DJ-ing. This CD has alot of love songs which is not surprising seeing all three of the boys got married since their last album. There's also a good bit of Spiritually inspiring lyrics in tradion of Pokinatcha and Teenage Politics, however beaa is much more mature, and less angst filled. Overall I have to say this is the best CD by MxPx yet. However if there is one bad thing about this CD it would be that it is over pollished. It almost seems like poppy hardcore sometimes, and you wish there was more meat and potatoes instead of a plate full of fillette mignion. Still, it has to be MxPx's best yet...
