The Ever Passing Moment, Washington homespun punksters MxPx's eighth full-length album, will not disappoint the punk-thirsty faithful and will likely rouse many a fan-to-be from sleep. Showing no sign of letting up, this trio pumps it out with a relentless grind and an effortless finesse, demonstrating that artistic integrity is alive and well in the world of energy rock. The Ever Passing Moment showcases the band's aptitude for producing catchy anthemic choruses and clever rhythmic changeups while surging full force through each song. Vocal styling partially reflects the pop-punk band Green Day, and an honest tone prevails in the emotional moods of these outpourings. Throughout the project, the lyrics paradoxically demonstrate that the most profound things in life are also the simplest. Check out "My Life Story" or "Prove It to the World" to get a taste, but don't wait too long to get this album. At the rate these guys are going, it may soon be dated material. --Israel Button

MXPX comes back with another solid disc. "Responsibility" remains one of the favorites singles from this band.

"No, it's not traditional, old-school, 3-chord-only punk - and no, not every song has a hyped-up, thrash polka beat....so what? Judge the MUSIC, people...not the genre or the category. It shouldn't be about how "punk" they are, it's about how good the music, concept and content is -- and I am a fan from their Magnified Plaid/Pokinatcha/Teenage Politics days. To me, this album is about a band that continues to grow and mature as musicians, songwriters and artists. MxPx's continued growth is evident on this CD. More use of alternate and minor chords, more sophisticated arrangements and song structures...it's a broadening of their "Slowly Going The Way of The Buffalo" album without losing what makes them MxPx. Mike's voice continues to mature in interpretation, and the interplay between guitar, bass and drums is as tight and accurate as ever. It's about the SONGS now -- not just about "playing fast and heavy" or "making a statement." All good things -- but remember this is music, first and foremost. These are songs that have plenty of hook for your ear to latch on to - while still making you think musically and lyrically. It IS pop-punk, yes...but it's concise, mature pop-punk, well-written and played. THAT'S what matters.Why only four stars? Well, I do agree with some other reviews...they're a little too glossed-over on this release and it takes a little bit off their edge and rawness. It's a trend that started on "Slowly Going..." But it's still an excellent album on its own merits.So broaden your genres and open up your ears...you'll be glad you did. (And btw, much more depth here than either Blink or Green Day)."
They did it again.

"Well, when I heard MxPx was coming out with a new CD I was anxious to see if the boys from Bremerton would be able to improve and mature in their sound. The answer to that riddle is "Yes, they did." MxPx is back and sounding great together again. I would have to say "The Everpassing Moment" overall album wise sounds like a mix between "Life In General," and "Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo." They put in some very punked up fast songs along with some slower "GSF-ish" alterna-punk songs, and as usual tons of them have the ultra catchy sing-along chorus' that we expect from all the MxPx albums. Lyric wise, they seem to have more to say than ever before, as songs deal with things like kids liking music for the wrong reasons (to be popular). As well as realizing we are all much smaller than we think we are. MxPx has given us one more reason to believe they are the leaders of their Pop-Punk genre. It goes without saying that "The Everpassing Moment" is a must buy for fans of catchy Punk Rock."
