After the underground success of Life in the Key of Bree, Buck-O-Nine made the leap to the majors and issued this record, co-produced by David Kershenbaum, who'd worked with Joe Jackson--hence, perhaps, the cover of Jackson's "I'm the Man," which perfectly suited the band's ska-punk style. But it was only one of a number of great songs here (the rest originals), with the title track and "Jennifer's Cold," in particular, standing out from the pack. Fast and hard, or slower and groovy, this record showed that Buck-O-Nine were fast masturing into real contenders. --Chris Nickson

"I discovered this band by randomly listening to cds in the punk section of a local cd store and as soon as i heard this i had to have it. Now its just about all i listen to. The lead singer's voice is a little weird but after a short while it starts to sound great. The cd is a great combonations of punk and ska and some other stuff. I love every song, but My Town, Round Kid, and Nineteen are the best."
The Best Bo9 CD you'll find

"This CD shows what Bck-O-Nine is all about. Knocking off the jazzy bass and horn parts from 'Songs in the Key of Bree", the band dives right into some hardcore ska with songs such as "Round Kid" and "Nineteen". The vocals are catchy and you find yourslef singing along after listening for only a few minutes. While Jon's vocie may seem annoying and whiny at times, it fits nicely into the rest of the band. Scott's bassline seems to swell up the drum and guitar beats, forcing the beat upward to new heights. However, if I had the option, I'd put it at about 4.5 stars. It gets repetative after a bit, with msot of the songs (with thwe exception of the odly humerous "Jenifer's Cold" and "Little Pain inside") seem to blend into one another. Altogether, a good work from a good band. Definatly something to check out."
Great SKA album

"I've listened to lots of ska over the years and I would rate "My Town" as one of my top 10 ska songs of all time. It's as catchy a ska tune as they come...ranks right up there with the classics from the English Beat and with more modern stuff like Rancid."
