Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Ever Passing Moment, Washington homespun punksters MxPx's eighth full-length album, will not disappoint the punk-thirsty faithful and will likely rouse many a fan-to-be from sleep. Showing no sign of letting up, this trio pumps it out with a relentless grind and an effortless finesse, demonstrating that artistic integrity is alive and well in the world of energy rock. The Ever Passing Moment showcases the band's aptitude for producing catchy anthemic choruses and clever rhythmic changeups while surging full force through each song. Vocal styling partially reflects the pop-punk band Green Day, and an honest tone prevails in the emotional moods of these outpourings. Throughout the project, the lyrics paradoxically demonstrate that the most profound things in life are also the simplest. Check out "My Life Story" or "Prove It to the World" to get a taste, but don't wait too long to get this album. At the rate these guys are going, it may soon be dated material. --Israel Button

5.0 out of 5 stars This album RAWKS! Aug. 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have about 7 MXPX albums, and I have to say that this one is definitely my fav. The songs are really catchy, and despite all these reviews saying that is more pop than punk, I think the album is really great. It has a more mature sound than the older, more "punk" albums and the songs have more variations. The older stuff is good, mind you, but a lot of the songs all sound the same, unlike this album. I also like the fact that these guys are considered Christian rock.. the lyrics are clean and sometimes refer to God and such. All the songs are great, but my favorites have to be "My Life Story", "Buildings Tumble", "Responsibility", "Is the Answer in the Question", "Foolish", "Unsaid", "It's Undeniable", and "Misplaced Memories". Anyway, if you like this album, "Teenage Politics", "Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo", and "Life and General" are also sweet.
Anyway, bottom line, this album is awesome and is a must-have!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.75 stars -- MXPX IS BETTER THAN THIS! Dec 27 2001
Format:Audio CD
If this is your first MXPX CD and you loved it, let me tell you that their other stuff is better. If you like punk rock, (and please, don't take that to mean Blink 182), you'll like their older stuff more. This is pop-punk, and "The Even Passing Moment" has too much of the "POP" in "pop-PUNK" than I would like to admit. Their other stuff is great, from the very punky "Teenage Politics" to the almost hardcore punk of "Let it Happen," this is not their best. But if you are a punk rock fan you'll probably be a bit disappointed with this CD. Too much pop. Who are they trying to be, Blink 182? These guys are acting like the sell outs of MTV. Not enough of their regular political and intelligent lyrics, and too many lyrics about girlfriends. I thought this CD was great at first, but I got tired of it quickly. I lost interested and put it away. By the time I pulled it out again I had burned "Teenage Politics" and "Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo" from a friend, (then later their live album "At the Show), and this one looked terrible compared to their other stuff. Their other stuff is pop-PUNK, not POP-punk. "The Ever Passing Moment" is pop for sure, with not enough of punk. What happened to those punky songs like in "Teenage Politics?" Come on MXPX! You can do better than this! They lost their intelligence, and they lost their punk. I just hope their next CD is better than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars they still got it April 23 2001
Format:Audio CD
Some people will hear this album and say, "They're selling out! The songs are slower and poppier!" And they would be right about the music to some degree. But, the band was not looking forward to money and fame when they wrote the 15 songs found on their new A&M release, The Ever Passing Moment.
They were looking backwards.
Mike Herrera, singer/bassist of the group, has a deep rooted love of Elvis Costello. The tight pop melodies of Costello have influenced tons of songwriters everywhere, and on this album Herrera throws in musical and lyrical nods to him everywhere you look. Also, in the liner notes, the group thanks groups like The Clash, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, and The Who. I compare this to the first album by MxPx, Pokinatcha. In the band picture from that record, Yuri's wearing a NOFX shirt, and Mike's wearing a Rancid shirt. They made it clear then who their influences were, and they make it clear on The Ever Passing Moment. Don't worry, there's plenty of punk energy and power that you've heard before from MxPx, but it's calmed down a little. Many songs, although they don't get too longer than 245 usually, are full of prechoruses and bridges, giving the album a much more structured feel than the typical punk release. Yuri's drumming rarely gets up to the warp speed which he's been known for. Tom Weisnewski's guitar work is as simple as it gets mostly, almost to a fault. Herrera does all he can to carry things on the album. His vocals have never sounded better (he really can sing, everyone has to give him some credit for that). The first song, My Life Story, is as catchy and punk rock as anything the band's ever done. It's mid tempo, but with booming drums (great production by studio wizard Jerry Finn, by the way).

5.0 out of 5 stars THEY STILL CAN POUND OUT STRONG PUNK ROCK!!! April 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
With every album mxpx just continues to get better. I'll have to be honest. When I popped this into my CD player it just blew my mind at how awesome but at the same time how different this album actually is. The big difference in this CD from the rest is the backing vocals and the melodies which gives it a little bit of a more melodic feel but not too pop sounding. You can hear the punk edge in just about every song. This album has some of my favorite mxpx songs and heck some of my favorite punk songs like 'my life story', 'two whole years', 'misplaced memories', and yes even 'responsibility'. I don't care what other people think of that song. I love it and it's right up there with songs like 'I'm ok you're ok' and 'chick magnet'. People say they sold out because they are ocasionally on MTV, but I know alot of people who always watch MTV and say they never heard of mxpx. So many people don't like 'responsibility' simply because it's played on the radio. People have to learn to simply like a song because they like it whether or not it's the most popular song or not. Well anyways, this whole CD rocks. PUNKS NOT DEAD! That's all I have to say about this CD.
