If you are truly a Streetlight Manifesto fan and aren't entirely caught up in the punk/ska box ("I always crack a smile when I see your punk clothes, you try try but you'll never fit in..." 9mm and a 3 piece suit), this album gives you a peak through the keyhole and into the living room of the bands tastes, likes and influences.
This is a music lovers album, not just for ska fans.
The production is very good. One issue I have with most ska bands is sloppy musicianship and bad recording engineers. Not the case here; This set features tight horns, great guitar and bass, and well executed drums/percussion. The quality of the MP3 is crisp and the mix is great.
The songs are arranged nicely and are great, unique covers done in the classic Streetlight way.
If you're a fan of ska or this band, buy it. You won't be disappointed.
