MTX ( also known by the long-form The Mr. T Experience) has been a pop-punk powerhouse since their 1986 self-released debut album, "Everyone's Entitled To Their Own Opinion." For their tenth(!) studio album the band, led by eminently witty and talented Doctor =46rank, have once again teamed up with producer Kevin Army (Operation Ivy, Sweet Baby) because if it isn't broke, don't fix it. The resulting album, "Yesterday Rules" is a whip-smart 13 song pop-punk affair. This is the band's first new full-length since 1999's "Alcatraz" and marks the debut of new members Bobby on bass and Ted on second guitar and keyboards. Fans of MTX and fans of great melodic punk rock will love "Yesterday Rules." This album contains a crafted mix of fast pop-punk songs, melodic mid-tempo rock-pop, a ballad or two and a few surprises. Some songs are too much fun, some are slightly dark, but they are all great! Lookout Records has sold over two hundred thousand MTX records and this album will once again confirm that Doctor Frank and Co. are masters of their craft. "Yesterday Rules" is the first MTX album to include special enhanced materials. The bonus features are available to fans when they put the CD in the CD-ROM drive of their PC or Mac. These materials include a special website with behind-the-scenes text, photos and video footage from the making of "Yesterday Rules," links to other exclusive MTX content on the web, tour dates, special offers on MTX merchandise and more - all only accessible to those who buy the CD!

"This is my early favorite for 2004 album of the year. Delivers the hook-heavenly pop-punk MTX is famous for, blended with intricate Byrdsy and Kinksy arrangements & Beach Boys backing vocals, all to tell emotional and articulate and true stories about love and, um, crucifiction. "Big, Brave Beautiful Hammer" will tear your happy heart out, "London" will remind you of being defiantly heartbroken in a faraway land, "F*cked Up on Life" will shout across the hills that great rock music is still being made in 2004."
MTX at their best!

"You cannot really go wrong in the hands of the Good Doctor. The Mr T Experience, MTX for short are back, pumping out what could be their most inspiring work. This smile inducing, head bobbing treasure rocks out from the first chord, and continues to hold you in throughout. Dr Franks Elvis Costello-ish delivery is quite brilliant, not to mention the fact that that delivery always comes with sharp, witty and unmatched lyrics. If you have never been a fan of, or never even heard of MTX, this album is a great time to become a little more aware of waht could possibly be the best band on earth!"
Dumb little band

"MTX continues to impress. Another top-notch collection of songs from Dr. Frank. Not exactly "pop punk" at this point, but Frank's songwriting skills seem to transcend musical genres. More of the hooks and clever lyrics you've come to expect from this band. Slightly more rocking than "Alcatraz," but still basically a pop album. Not as consistent as their best efforts, but still very good. And "London" is one of Frank's best songs ever.
