"MxPx comes back after Secret Weapon with the sequel to their first covers album from 1994. On the Cover II is a blast from start to finish, and the guys from MxPx really get a chance to show off their phenomenal talents by covering these songs and completely making them their own. Produced completely by Mike Herrera, this album will certainly not disappoint and is a must have for old fans and new. Plus, it could also be a fun way to introduce people to this AMAZING band."

"This is a good album for anyone whose been a long time fan of MxPx. Punk Rock Girl was done incredibly well and I'd put it up against the original version any day of the week. I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) was well done, as was Suburban Home and Kids In America, the latter probably being the most covered song by punk rock bands ever.
But there were a few groaners on the album, in particular their cover of Should I Stay Or Should I Go. No band will ever be able to perform that song as well as The Clash. To try is an exercise in futility.
Anyway I liked this album and if you're already a fan of MxPx you should definitely get it. You'll be glad you did. If you're not a fan yet, go buy the albums Panic and Life In General first so you know what you've been missing out on all these years."
