"I bought this CD when it was released in 1996 for 7 bucks on sale. And it was the best 7 bucks I ever spent! Punk prices for their merchandise is important to LTJ. They are not a "political" band, but ya gotta have fun sometimes...I listened to this CD for a year and a half straight, almost every day, and never got tired of it. My toes never stopped tapping and I always sing along with every single song. Their live shows are incredible -great energy, everyone jumping up and down and shouting the lyrics with Chris and Roger. If you think their CDs are good, you have to see them live! Horns add great hooks to every song. Vinnie's drumming keeps the toes a tappin'. The best ska/punk band around, hands down! Best songs are: 9th At Pine, Happyman, Automatic, Sugar In Your Gas Tank, Shindo, Jen, Frank, and Lockdown. Every song on this CD is good - tons of energy. And it grows on you with every listen. I gave all my friends a copy of this tape as presents. That's how good it is. LTJ is like fine wine- should be shared and savored."
But its just like every other Less Than Jake CD...

"Yes...just like every other LTJ CD...Totally awesome. Less Than Jake's Losing Streak, like all other LTJ albums, definitely holds a slot as contender for one of the best records of all time in my book. Less Than Jake created a whole new genre of music themselves with their "punk with horns" sound and scratchy yet rhythmic vocals. You cannot listen to this cd without moving, it is impossible. The talent and catchy chorus's these guys have is nothing short of marvelous and it doesn't let up. Sure it has its slow, ska moments in songs like "9th At Pine", "Krazy Glue", "Never Going Back To New Jersey" and a melodic vox and bass intro in "Shindo" but when you get to the unbelievable chorus' of songs like "107", "Johnny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts", "Automatic", and many of the other tracks on this record you cant help but feel the talent this band has. And the lyrics, don't get me started on those. I know people that at the last minute chose not to kill themselves because of songs on this cd. This record, Losing Streak, started a whole new era of punk rock and is one that you cannot pass up."
