5.0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE PUNK ROCK EP!! Jan. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
Okay. It's only an EP but it has 9 awesome punk rock tunes. As all their other albums I can't really compare this album to any of their previous. It's kind of a mixture of everything they have put out all compacted into an 18 minute album of pure MXPX punk rawk. The first track "lonesome town" is a really great song that sounds like something off of TEPM. The next track is called "letting go". It sounds like something right out of life in general. The next song is called "party II". It's sort of in between the sound of TEPM and life in general at the same time. The next track is called "time will tell". It has a sound that reminds me of their harder punk like pokinatcha. The next punked out tune is called "the opposite". This song is very reminiscent of slowly going the way of the buffalo as well as the following track which is entitled "don't look back". "Talk of the town" reminds me of pokinatcha even more because their old guitarist, Andy sings backup. The last two tracks, " the struggle" and "yuri wakes up screaming" are similar in sound to life in general. Everybody is talking about how mxpx has returned to their roots. I will admit that it is more punk than TEPM but in my opinion this album is right in between their new stuff and their old stuff and besides mxpx always was and always will be punk rock. Can't wait for their next album!They are currently demoing 40 brand new songs!! I recently read an interview with Mike, the lead singer and bassist. He says the new material is the best and it is punk. I love it when bands aren't afraid to call themselves punk or ska or whatever type of music they are. That's why I lost some respect for bands like the supertones and buck. Bands like FIF and mxpx aren't afraid of their genre just because they won't get airplay. PUNKS NOT DEAD. Neither is mxpx.

5.0 out of 5 stars The smartest thing MxPx has done May 30 2001
Format:Audio CD
MxPx turned a lot of heads when they announced they were putting an EP out on FAT. Personally, I think this is the smartest thing this band has ever done. While the physical quality of this record is "fair", the quality of the songs make up for it. This record in no way resembles any of the band's latest releases, containing songs that are a little "ballsy" for a pop-punk (if that's what you want to call it) band to be playing. "Talk of the Town" is the perfect example of that. It is a fast-paced, aggressive hardcore song that makes you double check to make sure you are actually listening to MxPx. The last track, "Yuri Wakes Up Screaming" is another track that you would never see on any of their major label releases. The same line is repeated throughout the whole song (with a slight exception) and the melodies change and breakdowns occur. It's definitely odd. The record opens with "Lonesome Town." This song is melody packed but doesn't stand a chance to its succeeder, "Letting Go." The future of this band is constantly being questioned but taking a break from releasing [junk]-filled records was definitely a good idea. And while the recording quality is always being knocked, the band made the choice of doing it themselves, and releasing it on a somewhat indie label. If MxPx sent this DIY message from the start I think they would be respected far more than they are respected today. A record like this was definitely due from this band.

4.0 out of 5 stars The MxPx we know and love has returned! May 22 2001
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
Now, seriously...is there any Magnified Plaid fan in this world who was NOT disappointed by The Ever Passing Moment? With it's pretty melodies and crappy lyrics, "Moment" seemed to signify MxPx's downfall. Where had Mike's whiny voice and Yuri's insane drumming gone (Tom seemed like the only member able to benefit from that album...)? It seemed like all hope was lost, that "Mike, Tom, and Yuri" would become another "Mark, Tom, and Travis" clone. But have no fear, my friends. With their new 9 song EP, "The Renaissance EP," the guys have proven that they haven't forsaken their punk roots. The band released the EP on independent label Fat Wreck Chords instead of on A&M...A&M wouldn't let them release another album this soon, i guess? Well, anyways, "The Renaissance" does sound very much like an indie album, instead of the "corporate punk" tragedy The Ever Passing Moment turned out to be. Mike seems to scream a lot here, a good sign. The guy definitely can sing, but he sounds better when he gets some screaming in. Some of the songs, like "Time Will Tell" and "Talk of the Town" even sound like some of their older stuff, like some of the songs off Teenage Politics or Pokinatcha. Still, "The Renaissance" isn't perfect, even if it does represent a return to the punk basics (to some extent). There aren't any earth shattering songs on here, like Punk Rawk Show or Chick Magnet...this EP can't really compare to Life in General or Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo.
