MXPX has been a pop-punk staple since they released their debut "Pokinatcha" over a decade ago. Since then, they've released seven full-lengths, a live album, a slew of 7-inches and EPs, and the aptly titled career retrospective, "Ten Years And Running". Their third LP, "Life In General", was named by Alternative Press as one of the top ten punk albums of 1996. "Let's Rock" is a 12-song CD of unreleased and rare material stretching back to the 2000 "Ever Passing Moment" recording sessions. Running the gamut from acoustic demos to fully-polished punk-pop anthems, MXPX have crafted a collection of songs sure to please both hardcore fans and newbies alike.

"This CD is a collection of songs, mostly rarities and B-sides. However, one cannot tell that after a few listens. Good performances and well-written material for the most part, particularly the tracks "Breathe Deep" and "1 and 3." The opening track is good as well. This CD sounds less polished and slick, especially in comparison to their more recent studio albums. In the end, this CD rocks and has almost as many hooks as "Panic," which makes it my surprise of 2006!"
Very Nice for a B-Side album

"I am very pleased with this album of b-sides from mxpx. At first listen, nothing seemed to impress me. But when I listened closer, I noticed some really nice work by them. First of all "1 and 3" is a unique sounding track that is quite catchy. "Breath Deep", the single off the record, also stands out to me. I actually really enjoyed when they went a little ballady on me for a couple songs, including "Don't Forget Me" and "Where Did You Go"
I would recommend this to any long-time fan of mxpx, but for a new fan of the band, I would suggest you pick up "Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo" or "Teenage Politics" before this one. I think this album is better if you already know the mxpx stuff really well.
BTW, I'm definitely not thirteen. I'm 14, thank you very much."

"As a longtime fan of MXPX I was disappointed by this album. I know it is a compilation of rarities with a couple of new songs tacked on, but they could have done better than this. At barely over 35 minutes, the album really is not worth full LP price. Out of the 12 songs, only 9 are traditional MXPX songs. The other 3 are acoustic, with 1 being a repeat of the first song on the album. That's just 11 songs on the whole thing. I know there are tons of B-sides and other rarities to be found that they could have added. There are a half dozen Christmas songs they could have included(Each year MXPX puts out a new Christmas song on their website). This album really feels like they put zero effort in it. For their fans they should have done better."
