On their fourth full-length release, San Diego's Buck-O-Nine continue to trace the ska-punk revolution from its '70s roots to its '90s incarnation. With a robust horn section bopping alongside their breakneck reggae rhythms, Buck-O-Nine's lead singer Jon Pebsworth struts his stuff in a voice that would make Joe Jackson proud. While the punk spirit on this CD is often eclipsed by the band's feel good melodies, Libido is still an extra-energetic foray into modern ska. Jonas Kleiner's guitar playing is both upbeat and tasteful on fun tunes such as "On a Sunny Day." With some tranquil moments and world music creeping into their overall sound, Buck-O-Nine show they aren't afraid to experiment with the ska-punk formula. --Mitch Meyers

"You know, I don't think I've ever had as much disappointment after buying and listening to this cd EVER! This CD lacks everything that is good about Buck O Nine. It's boring, it has very few good melodies, it makes me want to jab my eye out with a pencil, blah blah blah. Spend your good money on a good cd. Personal recommendation: Keasbey Nights by Catch 22."
I'm not saying it sucks but............

"If you've never heard of Buck O Nine then this CD might interest you but if your a fan then I don't suggest buying it because it will be a let down. The songwriting is still good but they have lost their edge."
Sorry Guys But this one blows it
