I've had this album ever since it came out, and I just listened to it again last night. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are one of the greatest ska bands of all time, right up there with the Specials. True ska, in my opinion, was stuff more like said Specials or Selecter, not the old-skool stuff such as The Skatalites, or the stuff they have now which is basically punk with horns. The Bosstones still manage to capture that true ska spirit, and I would highly reccomend this album to anyone new to ska before they delve into the brilliant world of ska music.
As for the Bosstones themselves, I consider this their best album. It's possibly the catchiest they've ever done, and is nice, slow, and mellow, just like ska is supposed to be. Every instrument does it's best, from the guitar to the horn section. Like I said, this album is a must have.
