Product Description

Amazon.ca

Virtually an institution after a decade on the scene, Boston's finest ska band continues to deliver an extreme adrenaline rush on its fifth album, which was produced by Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade. The metal edge in the Bosstone's particular brand of skacore comes further to the forefront this time, while songs such as "Noise Brigade" and "Royal Oil" rank among the catchiest they've recorded. And Nate Albert continues to carve out a new role for the guitar in ska-influenced music. Jim Derogatis

5.0 out of 5 stars Very energetic and catchy. Feb. 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
I only found out recently that the bosstones sang "The Impression that I get" I immediently had to have this cd. This cd is energetic and upbeat and fun to dance around to. It's a grat distraction from doing other less fun things like homework. Aside from "The Impression that I get" my favorite song on this cd is probably "The rascal king" this song is fun and happy and has a chorus thats fun to sing along with. Definetly check out this cd; these songs will be stuck in your head for days (and thats a good thing).

Most third-wave ska is basically pop-punk with horns. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are no exception to this rule. Most everything about Let's Face It is slick, homogenized, and safe.
The one thing that redeems the Bosstones from the rest of the soundalike third-wave ska refuse (Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, etc.) is a respectable horn section. They actually integrate the brass pretty well with the music in most of the songs (ex. The Rascal King, the title track) rather than just treating them like an add-on. However, the latter half of the album is more guitar-driven, and their take on punk is rather pedestrian. If it weren't for Dickey Barrett's distinctive raspy voice, this would be any other third-wave ska outfit.
I'll admit, I used to dig this band. But it doesn't take long to get tired of them or their contemporaries. Operation Ivy is the exception, and that's because they were a punk band first and a ska band second, rather than some half-arsed combination of the two. Get Op Ivy's single-disc compilation Energy, and you can safely write off third-wave ska after that. For real ska, you're better off checking out English two-tone (second-wave) bands such as the Specials and English Beat, or looking even further back to '60s bands like the Skatalites.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a train wreck from a band with skatential. Aug. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
This offering from the mighty mighty bosstones demonstrates how bad a ska/punk band can sound having said that the ska elements in this cd are nothing short of perfect with the first half of the album producing 5 star quality however then the rock comes and it's very poor punk rock at that, one minute the rascal king and impression that i get are getting your feet tapping and are great two tone songs then you get that bug bit me and songs of a low calibur, lets face it is an album that you really cant get into and will probably only listen to very rarely (unless you're hardcore MMB fans) in this way i feel it's similar to their first release which was equally as bad as it suffered the same flaws which was bad rock as oppose to great ska. I heard somebody saying how the skatalites and the toasters stole ideas from the mighty mighty bosstones which could'nt be further from the truth as they started before the bosstones and with that point made i would say i would recommened any other bosstones release to this and their first offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ska at it's best May 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
Considered by many to be the band's greatest album, "Let's Face It" is full of extremely catchy songs like "The Impression That I Get". This album is great fr ska, punk, and reggae fans. Parents, I would deem this acceptable for ages 13 and up.

I've been a big listener to Ska styled music, Mighty Mighty Bosstones is defineatly one of the top. Their song "The impression that I get" is a great song that makes a cold winter melt into a sunny summer. I love this cd. 5 Stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Still good after all these years... April 5 2003
By Skibz
Format:Audio CD
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.
Luv,
Muttz!
