Top Customer Reviews
Kinder Words-The opening song and I wouldn't pick any other song on the CD for the opener.With its incredible horn part and great guitar, it's truly an amzing song.
Sad Silence-Good song,I especially liked the ending.
Hell of a Hat-GREAT horn part!Its awesome how they can start soft and gradually explode into horns and screaming in this song.
Pictures to Prove It-This song is ok. Not as good as some other songs on the CD, but still a great addition to the album.
We Should Talk-Awesome song. Great proof that hard rock and horns can still be mixed together and sound great.
A Dollar and A Dream-This song is good, but its overall softness kind of breaks the mood of the rest of the CD.Still pretty good though.
Stand Off-Another great song.The trombone intro is THE COOLEST!!
365 Days-Awesome song that displays Dicky's amazing vocal talents and still has a great horn part.
Toxic Toast-If there were a list of the top 3 snogs on this CD, this song would be on it.Amazing piano and trombone solos.MMB CLASSIC!!!
Bronzing the Garbage-Great song with good vocals and trumpets.
Dogs and Chapains-Incredible song-fast paced and energetic.
Jump Through the Hoops-What better way to end the CD that with an awesome song like this.You'll be whistling this tune forever. It may be the last, but certainly not the least.
Overall, a great CD and I highly recommend it to any punk or ska fan, as it clearly excells in both areas.
It begins with an incredible riff in Kinder Words, one of the most catchy songs on the album. Sad Silence follows, and is a bit lighter, but the song changes tone so many times that it's hard to keep track. Next is Hell of a Hat, a favorite amongst internet fans. The song has excellent lyrics and a catchy sub-chorus. Picture to Prove It is next and is a song I usually skip, but is still a quality MMB song. We Should Talk is a psychotic piece about the lost art of communication, and is one of their most fast pased songs. Dollar and a Dream is another various toned song with a really cool casino intro. My personal favorite, Stand Off, is great not only because of the superb lyrics but for the even more superb guitars complete with short stutters weaving in and out of the chorus. Another fast song, 365 Days, is one where Dicky keeps yelling "Three Hundred and Sixty-Five" than moves on before he finishes. It's confusing, but an excellent singing technique. Another excellent song, Toxic Toast, has several saloon piano parts that add an extra bit of greatness to an already great song. Bronzing the Garbage is a moshing favorite and also a very catchy song. Dogs and Chaplains is like a mixture of every good element of the album into a conclusive piece. Jump Through the Hoops is like the P.S. and is a surprisingly cool finish to the album.Read more ›
for those not familiar w/this band, they are a Boston-based band that plays an eclectic mix of thrash-metal, ska, alt-rock, and reggae...singer Dicky Barrett is best known for his growl, and musically they are well known for sweet horn lines on trombone and sax (played here by Brockenborough, Burton, and Lenear, the second two on sax)...guitarist Nate Albert is one of the more talented in the ska-punk genre...
QUESTION THE ANSWERS starts off in-your-face, w/the pleading "Kinder Words"...listen to the lyrics and its easy to see what the bosstones are saying...its followed up by "Sad Silence" and "Hell of a Hat", songs about a bully who kills a kid and a well-to-do gun-toting man respectively...they both deal w/problems in society..."Pictures to Prove it" starts w/a sick trombone solo, and descrives the feelings of love lost...the next notable song, "Stand Off", another trombone introduced cut, showcases more love lost and partner questioning.."365 Days" talks about all that can change in a year, and "Toxic Toast" one of the best cuts on the album, sees Dicky reminiscing in his lyrics...the last notable song, also the last on the album, is "Jump Through the Hoops", about a guy whos trying to please everyone...
musically, this album plays background to Barrett's vocals, whereas usually the horn players are in the forefront, along w/Alberts axe...Read more ›
