This is MxPx's best cd (which is a tough choice, because they're all so good). In fact, this is probably the best cd I've ever heard. Every song is incredible, there's not one that you have to skip. They are all very catchy and very good. They have strong melodies, and do that without sacrificing the cd's punkiness. Don't get me wrong, it is "pop-punk", but it is punkier than most pop-punk/ska-punk acts (ala New Found Glory, Midtown, Less Than Jake, which are all good bands).
Another amazing thing about this cd is that they were in high school when they wrote this album. The songs do seem like they kinda go by a formula after a while, but that didn't bother me at all. Mike's vocals are really good on this album, especially considering how young they were. The lyrics are pretty good. Only few songs have any political meaning (around 4 or 5 out of the 19), but that's alright. They are a Christian band, but besides 2 or 3 songs, you couldn't tell.
I can't say enough about this cd. There aren't any major flaws. If you are a fan of punk or emo, BUY THIS CD, you won't be dissapointed. What are you waiting for- go get it.

Yup, the song that applies to every punk rock high schooler out there, sung by MXPX. This CD is worth it just for "Punk Rawk Show" ... literally. And now saying that, this CD is an essential for any pop-punk fan. If you are an MXPX fan you have this CD already. Every song on here makes you want to mosh, or rather just to see them in concert - even though "Punk Rawk Show" is basically the only song about concerts. I think it is my life long goal to see these guys in concert. Oh yea, and this CD is NOT for Blink 182 "fans." It's pop-PUNK, and this CD is closer to real punk than "Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo" and their new, (new isn't always better), album "The Ever Passing Moment." By far this is MXPX's best CD. Every song is very listenable, though after a while they all sound a bit the same, and every song is very punky.
And to those of you who already own this CD, I would highly recommend their live album "At the Show." If you love the punk in this pop-punk band you'll love the very punky live album, (including the Ramones' "KKK Took My Baby Away" sung by MXPX). If you love the punk in this CD you'll love the punk in their live one. "Teenage Politics" is the punkiest studio album of MXPX.

"Teenage Politics" was the first MxPx (Magnified Plaid) album that I acquired. Back in 9th grade when I purchased it, I thought this album was brilliant, full of deep political and emotional truths. After about two years of having set the album aside in order to listen to their more recent works, I decided to throw "Teenage Politics" into my CD Player. I was suprised. Had the CD changed somehow? For some reason the music that I heard sounded whiny, petty, trite, and badly mixed. Frankly, I was suprised that I ever liked this album at all.
The points that they attempted to make with this album: the government stinks, society stinks, the Bible kinda neat, and I never want to work - I just wanna go to punk "rawk" shows. They made their points clear I suppose, but they sound so whiny and immature the whole time that it is hard to take them seriously.
To MxPx's defense (and why I gave the album 3 stars instead of 2), I really enjoyed this album at one time in my life, and I think there are many high schoolers out there who might enjoy it.
I would like to recommend their later albums over this one. Albums like "Life in General" and "Slowly Going..." have a fuller sound and do not come across quite as whiny and immature as "Teenage Politics."

I love MxPx. This is one of the first CD's I bought when I was getting into the Punk Rock. But, for some reason, even 6 years later, I do not like it.
I think I've narrowed down why I don't like it into a few specific reasons. And it's funny, because all of these reasons deal with technicalities, rather than songwriting or musicianship.
First of all, I don't like how Mike sings on this record. Silly of me to say, right? Not really. The songs seem to be written in a lower key then he was ready for at the time (Senior in H.S.) so, when he sings low, it just comes off as lacking energy or even emotion. It just sounds too apathetic.
Secondly, I don't like the mixing. The guitar tracks aren't nearly as prominent as they should be, especially for this style of punk.
There are two points of brilliance on this album, however, and one of them is monumental. PUNK RAWK SHOW has become a new school punk anthem, and to this day MxPx still rock it out live. My second favorite part of the album is the hidden track. I'm not sure what it's called, but it sounds different than the rest of the record, and almost sounds like it should have been on LIFE IN GENERAL.
Everyone likes this album. I don't. I'm sorry.

Teenage politics. What exactly would this mean?
I still don't know. But the MXPX album is pretty solid. Released on renowned Christian punk label Tooth and Nail Records in 1995, the album was filled with strong hooks and surprising songwriting talents for three teenage kids. Songs like Punk Rawk Show, Sugarcoated Poison Apple, Something More and Different Things have that high speed pop melodies of the Life In General album. Also, there are a handful of songs like Inquiring Minds Want To Know, Americanism and Democracy have an angry political bent left over from Pokinatcha. The album has a smooth hidden song at the end, Dolores. It's a catchy little punk love song (like we haven't heard enough of those. . .), done with good vocals and awesome fast guitar playing.
False Fiction has some interesting rhythm changes, thanks to drum wizard Yuri. Rainy Day and Moneytree have a really poppy feel, almost like MXPX's most recent work.
Mike Herrera's writing was really good here. He already had some insightful lines in a few songs, and the music stays in your head. His singing sounds a little snotty compared to him today, but it's punk rock, so what do you expect? Tom Weisnewski made his first full length appearance with the band for this album, and he did some very cool things (listen to Moneytree or Something More to hear what a catchy guitarist sounds like). Yuri he's awesome and always has been, 'nuff said.
Overall though, this isn't the best album by MXPX. Life In General is chock full of hooky songs, Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo has a more mature sound, and The Everpassing Moment is a slightly different sound as a whole.
Plus, the live album At The Show showcases the band's manic live prescence.
Any of these would be advised as better buys. But Teenage Politics is a good album to put on and jump around to. If you feel like being a kid for a while.
