5.0 out of 5 stars Best Music Out There Today, Period. April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD about a month ago, and it has been my favorite album since. So inventive, brilliantly executed...it brings together so many styles that I can't even list them all. Like someone said earlier, this has an Eastern European/Romanian sound to a lot of it, while also mixing in classical, jazz, swing, polka, reggae, punk, and just about everything else you can think of. The horn parts are played flawlessly, and the lyrics are brilliant. A lot of the horn parts quote melodies that are extremely familiar without being obvious, which adds to the album. My favorite songs on the CD are the ones that have fast, sing-along choruses such as "Point/Counterpoint" and "We Are the Few." The shout/horn response part in "Everything Went Numb" and other tracks is also excellent. As a listener of music of all styles, you're almost guaranteed to enjoy and appreciate the way Streetlight blends everything together. The most appealing part of "Everything Goes Numb" is that it sounds unlike absolutely anything else out there, except maybe "Keasbey Nights" by Catch 22, which the same guy wrote. This album is hard to describe, but everyone I've shared it with listens to it all the time. Buy this now, but be warned, it will take up permanent residence in your CD player and your head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jan. 30 2004
By Teeb
Format:Audio CD
This cd's awesome, when i first bought it, i must've listened to it 15 times in a row. Every single song is amazing. Something I thought at first was that 'here's to life' was a kinda weird song. Then later i downloaded the B.O.T.A.R (Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution, for anyone who doesn't know them) cd, I listened to that for a while, and the next time I heard the streetlight manifesto version of the song, something clicked. The song made perfect sense to me now, just little things like in the botar version, they say "And every single soldier wasn't fired, some have quit" then in the sm version they say "And I can't help agreeing with those who would not quit." Whether or not that's meant to go together, or he's just talking about people who refuse to resort to suicide to solve thier problems('quitting' life), I don't know, but it just seems right. I'd also like to say that the horn parts are amazing. I play trombone, and i feel because of that, I can really appreciate most ska more, wondering how they might have written a riff and stuff like that.To close, i'd just like to say BUY THIS CD NOW!!!

"annie's tired of forgetting about today and always planning for tomorrow, tomorrow annie said"
streetlight manifesto's Everything Goes Numb can be described as nothing less than brilliant. as many have said it feels like a natural continuation of keasbey nights, arguably the best ska album of all time..sm seamlessly blends an upbeat, extremely energetic style of ska with at times hardcore punk and is the best band ive ever heard do so. favorite songs on the album include "A Better Place, a Better Time," "A Moment of Silence," and "The Big Sleep" all of which I listen to daily.
also, if you like ska try five iron frenzy, i voted for kodos, save ferris, and mustard plug. if you're into ska/punk like streetlight, check out catch 22, rx bandits, less than jake, big d and the kids table, the suicide machines and the hippos. try melodic punk bands like the bouncing souls, brodie, rufio, and emo bands brand new and yellowcard if you're into the emo side of things.
definitely check out Everything Goes Numb you certainly won't be disappointed

4.0 out of 5 stars "Everything Goes Numb" Sept. 30 2003
By nimrod
Format:Audio CD
ARTIST: Streetlight Manifesto
ALBUM: Everything Goes Numb
GENRE: Ska/Punk
INFLUENCES: Catch 22, Operation Ivy, jazz, The Mars Volta (in a way maybe only I understand...) etc
Arright, well, this album comes from a bunch of dudes who've been around the ska scene. Basically, Streetlight Manifesto is a supergroup. And their debut, Everything Goes Numb is a super album (forgive the lameness).
So what does this sound like? Well, ska is typically associated with pop-punk and horns, and candy-coated lyrics (ie: Reel Big Fish), but this stuff is progressive. It pushes the boundaries of a genre not known for extensive musical creativity. The song structures are easily the most complex in the genre, and are more complex than most mainstream rock. As a trumpet player, I can honestly tell you these horn parts are complicated, intricate, and damn melodic. See, Streetlight Manifesto doesn't use guitars for their main melodic instruments, they use their monstrously talented horn section. And honestly, the horn-lines they've written for this album are sweet. They're fast, melodic, and catchy. To top that off, each song typically has an "A melody" and a "B melody" which tend to be equally good. And no, I don't call the bridge the "B melody". I can't really explain how sick these horn parts are, they're just really good. Anyway, the rest of the band rocks hard too. The bass player is quite talented and lays down some grooves behind the brassy chaos of the melody, and the guitar player is competent, just laying down your basic ska strumming, though in the few parts he gets to show off, he steps up. The drummer, meanwhile, is completely out of his mind, jumping from jazz to hiphop to punk beats on a dime, and w/equal skill.

This album continues the excellent whip-smart lyrics and energy that Catch 22 had. The songs, however, are grander in scope and a bit more polished (the horns in particular). Read more
