Even though this isn't the band at their strongest, it is by no means a weak point in their career. I suppose this album is a sort of in between point for MXPX, after riding high on earlier albums they seemed to lose their edge somewhat. But then again, this isn't what you would call dulled down, it's more of a cooled off MXPX.
When "Slowly..." starts off, it starts off strong, with the first two tracks "Under lock and key" and "Tomorrow's another day". By the time you get midway through the album it does a quick dip, dropping off at "Party at my house...", quickly picking up at "The downfall...", and returning back to normal with a few mediocre tracks.
Pretty much pop punk fans will love this one, MXPX fans may need to warm up to this one, and other rock fans will just need to try it for themselves.
One quick thing before I go, you may hear talk about MXPX being a Christian band, don't believe what you hear. While it is true the band thanks God in the linear notes, Mike's not singing his praise or preaching the word in any songs. This is neither a negative or positive thing, but I thought it was important enough to squeeze into my review.
If I could give "Slowly..." a 4.5 I would, but unfortunately that just can't be, so it stays as 4 star album. A good album, a great band, pick it up.
The opening to "Set The Record Straight" is so awesome, you have to listen to it, along with "The Theme Fiasco", which is sort of "Mission Impossible" style Punk. This album is far better than their previous cd, "Life in General", which had a lot of annoying riffs and plain, uninteresting drumming in many of the songs. I consider this album the "comeback" from "Life in General" :-) .
All in all this cd is a must buy for any secular or Christian punk rock fan out there, particularly fans of Green Day and The Ataris.
WHY IT NEEDS FIVE STARS: Because you can listen to it beginning to end. There's not a track in here you need to skip. The lyrics are great ... this is punk rock right here.
WHY IT NEEDS FOUR STARS: Very similar to MXPX's "Teenage Politics." They sound very similar, but the musicianship here might be a little better. Aside from track nine, which sounds like a few of the other uncharacteristic of MXPX songs off of "Let it Happen" they sound the same. Still great, though I am getting a little tired of hearing the same old thing.
A great CD that you can listen to beginning to end. I don't know what they were thinking with tracks nine and sixteen, but I loved it anyway. "Fist Vs. Tact," track nine, is almost hardcore punk. MXPX screaming? It doesn't work. And about the whole Fiasco thing ... I won't ask. But everything else is great. I was a bit disappointed though, (a bit, and that only equals about half a star), because this is another "Teenage Politics." The musicianship is a little better, but that's it. They're the same. Of course that doesn't take away from the quality of the CD. If you already have "Teenage Politics" I wouldn't recommend buy this. Check out "Let it Happen," with it's punkier, more harsh guitar playing, or "The Ever Passing Moment," with more pop in the pop-punk, if you want something different. This is still an excellent CD, that gets four and a half stars.
