Product Description

Product Description

MXPX has been a pop-punk staple since they released their debut "Pokinatcha" over a decade ago. Since then, they've released seven full-lengths, a live album, a slew of 7-inches and EPs, and the aptly titled career retrospective, "Ten Years And Running". Their third LP, "Life In General", was named by Alternative Press as one of the top ten punk albums of 1996. "Let's Rock" is a 12-song CD of unreleased and rare material stretching back to the 2000 "Ever Passing Moment" recording sessions. Running the gamut from acoustic demos to fully-polished punk-pop anthems, MXPX have crafted a collection of songs sure to please both hardcore fans and newbies alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Good!! Dec 8 2006
By Cory T. Shaeffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a collection of songs, mostly rarities and B-sides. However, one cannot tell that after a few listens. Good performances and well-written material for the most part, particularly the tracks "Breathe Deep" and "1 and 3." The opening track is good as well. This CD sounds less polished and slick, especially in comparison to their more recent studio albums. In the end, this CD rocks and has almost as many hooks as "Panic," which makes it my surprise of 2006!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice for a B-Side album Nov. 6 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am very pleased with this album of b-sides from mxpx. At first listen, nothing seemed to impress me. But when I listened closer, I noticed some really nice work by them. First of all "1 and 3" is a unique sounding track that is quite catchy. "Breath Deep", the single off the record, also stands out to me. I actually really enjoyed when they went a little ballady on me for a couple songs, including "Don't Forget Me" and "Where Did You Go"

I would recommend this to any long-time fan of mxpx, but for a new fan of the band, I would suggest you pick up "Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo" or "Teenage Politics" before this one. I think this album is better if you already know the mxpx stuff really well.

Cheers.

BTW, I'm definitely not thirteen. I'm 14, thank you very much.
4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best B-side albums Feb. 4 2012
By Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Inherently b-side albums are a hodge-podge of songs that really weren't meant to go together, and quite often the songs never made it to any album for good reason. There are about half of the songs on Let's Rock which fall into such a category. The other songs, however, are excellent MXPX songs and I was very surprised to find them on such an album. The quality of those alone make this cd a very smart purchase. I totally recommend this for both MXPX fans as well as new comers.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Album April 19 2011
By W. Malski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always loved this band and probably always will. This album is different than most of their other stuff but in a good way. If you like party rock more than punk rock then give it a try. It's just fun music.
3.0 out of 5 stars Tough To Love It July 20 2007
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think the problem with this album and many b-sides albums is the lack of fluidity in the songs. To me, it definitely has the feel of a compilation cd. I also wonder if any of these songs were originally Arthur tracks (Mike's short-lived side band). If you've heard Arthur, listen to "Don't Forget Me" and "Where Did You Go?" and compare.

The combination of the mediocrity of the songs and the short length make the cd difficult to really enjoy. Sadly, when I go through my MxPx collection or playlist, I skip this album. They recorded a better version of "You Walk, I Run," on the Responsibility Single (which is selling for $100 on Amazon! I paid $6 at Hot Topic). "Make Up Your Mind" was also on that single.

If they had put some bonus featues on the cd like the new Let It Happen, I might recommend it, but overall, it's a product for the collector/die hard fan. Let's not kid ourselves, it's a b-side album which means it's not their best work, but nevertheless it's more MxPx songs for people to enjoy (to some degree).
