This cd is MxPx's very first album, and it is very impressive when putting that into consideration. It is very raw, full of energy, and of course its very fast.
"Weak" is one of my all-time favorite MxPx songs, along with "Anywhere But Here". Other highlights on the album include "Think Twice", "PXPX", and "Time Brings Change".
There is one problem that I have with this cd. It is very repetitive. The first half of the album is AWESOME and a ton of fun to listen to, but by the the last half of the album the sound starts getting old. Yuri has practically the same drumbeat throughout the entire record (with the exception of "Bad Hair Day") and by the end of the record, you are dying to hear newer MxPx that is a little more under control and mature. Teenage Politics, the sophomore album, is an album with just as much energy but it is a much better improvement.
If BE&A was your first MxPx cd, then don't get Pokinatcha next. Get either Life In General or Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo. Also - the lyrics are blatantly Christian on this album, so if you're bothered by too much "preaching" then you may not like this. But if you have most of MxPx's cds already or you really like their faster punkier stuff, then go get this.
