"i just discovered the dance hall crashers a few months ago...i bought their cd from recomendations made on this site--i hadn't heard anything by them before but i took a chance and bought this cd. within like a month i had ALL their cds and they are now my all time favorite band (as the owner of 400+ cds it really takes somethin for me to put it at the top of the list--especially so quickly) i cant begin to tell you how awesome this band is! they have the coolest lyrics and all their songs are uniquely different--(i hate when you get a cd and its good...but all the songs sound pretty much the same--not an issue with the DHC)my fave songs: Mr. Blue, All Mine, Salted, Cold Shower.....aww forget it -- i love them all!how bout a sample of the cool lyrics?
-"oh quit your whinin', it's so borin, play the victim, and keep my yawnin...."-Mr. Blue--great for if you're sick of listening to people complain-"i wish i could tell you what i want from you, i would if i knew"-Cold Shower--great if you want somebody but you dont but you do and they want you but they dont yet they do....-"i love to hear myself talk, im my own favorite audience, cuz im the funniest person i know...if you were me im sure youd agree"-The Truth About Me--heh heh...just a cool song-"you're the one i've been waitin on, what took you, what took you so long, i'd just about givin up on this, oh yeah, oh yeah don't you wish, that you could go and forget about me, but that'd but that'd be too easy, better be ready to be only mine.."-All Mine--awesome songi dont know why i chose those lyrics--just a tiny sample. dont think anymore just buy this--promise--its GREAT STUFF."
One of the most satisfying ska records of the mid 90s.

"There were a ton of ska/punk acts in the mid 90s that never really stood out from the bunch, or provided many memorable records. "Honey I'm Homely" is probably one of the best ska records ever recorded.
Everyone in the band belts out tightly constructed power-pop-ska, that backs the vocals beautifully. Vocals come first on this amazing record, combining the captivating vocals of Elise Rogers and Karina Denike. These two singers harmonize so beautifully, weaving in and out of the rhythm, rocking out extremely addictive choruses.
It's hard to pick a favorite, since the album works so well as a whole. Some of the standout tracks would include "Lost Again," "All Mine," "Elvis & Me," and "Last Laugh". Probably my favorite track here would be "The Truth About Me". It has the most addictive chorus on the album: hey - I love to hear myself talk, I'm my own favorite audience, 'cause I'm the funniest person I know, if you were me I'm sure you'd agree. All the lyrics presented here will make you smile from the pure wittiness of them.
If you are tired of ska/punk bands that all sound the same. Pick up "Honey I'm Homely"; it's a brilliantly refreshing record."

"I reviewed this CD as a 4 star CD earlier.... but now Ive changed my mind. Its so even, so great. I love practically each and every song, cept Next to you and Stand by perhaps, that are great songs but not in class with the rest of the CD. Without exaggerating: the best album I have ever heard. Seeing from its high quality songs. Love the bass, the guitars, the drums and the vocals.... the intro on Over again is just yummy. One small complain: the refrain on some songs (over again, Lost again) are weaker then the verse... but who cares? The best album I have. And I have a lot of CDs. Wanna give it more then just 5 stars.... recentlt got Lockjaw, and first impression is that it is just as good.... DHC is my fave band, no doubt about that. Speaking of No Doubt, they are nothing compared to DHC. In short: they rule."
