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

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.
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are my favorite band so perhaps im a bit biased towards them, but when i first got this album, i didnt like it very much and found myself trying to like it...However, my musical tastes have changed, and this cd got me to buy 6 other Bosstone albums, all of which i have found amazing...onto the review
This is w/o a doubt the catchiest, poppiest of the bosstones albums, w/the hugely popular single "The Impression That I Get"...while it is more mainstream than their other efforts, it is still a great album
songs like "noise brigade", "the rascal king", and "the impression that i get" show the Bosstones playing upbeat ska w/great horns...the guitar playing on this cd is great, just listen to the guitar solo on "Desensitized" for proof...Dicky Barrett doesnt use the growling delivery hes known for very much on this album, opting for a smoother voice, but it works w/the brand of ska/punk on this album...his lyrics are very good, w/some powerful messages in songs like "lets face it" "another drinkin song" and "numbered days"...
this album is anthemic ska at about its finest, youll find yourself full of energy when listening, and youll be singing along, guaranteed...its great ska, mainstream or not...a great intro to the Bosstones, or great for fans of ska/punk
The rest of the band has its good points as well, as Nate Albert's guitar playing is catchy and very reggae-influenced on certain portions of the album. ... the horn section is a major focus and does a pretty good job at it, though in my opinion the guitar, nicely timed drumming, and bass lines hold down a better job of it.
... If this is your type of music, grab this. And if it isn't, its still alright to lay back and relax to once in awhile. 3 stars for the good effort and catchiness, minus 2 for general dislike of the genre.
However, reading over other reviews, i was amazed with others views. The "Old dedicated fans" who think Bosstones sold out with this album have clearly not thought through this album.
What is everyones problem with music being popular? Im a longtime Bosstones fan, having found them in 1991, but i dont have a problem with the fact that they have some popular songs. Its nice to know that people have some taste, and bosstones offer a great alternative to manufactured pop. Until you guys get over your ... with music being popular, your gonna feel constantly ... over, as ALL bands (or their record companies) want to make money, and that means plugging the music in the charts.
Dont let the bigots dissuade you from buying this GREAT album, it truely rocks my socks.
