Ska/Punk Classic
A. Reed | 05/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Less Than Jake's "Losing Streak", really got me into a Ska/Punk phase a few years ago, so I read a bunch of positive reviews about Slapstick, and figured I'd better pick up this CD. To be honest, I didn't really like the CD at all at first and was initially disappointed because I was hoping for a Less Than Jake clone. But like Operation Ivy's "Energy" album, I got a couple of its tunes stuck in my head, and the more and more I listened to it, the better and better it became. It's one of those albums that every time you give it a listen, you hear something new, and like it that much more. The CD was also my first exposure to vocalist Brendan Kelly (Later a vocalist for The Broadways and The Lawrence Arms) whose voice just packs every song with overwhelming energy and excitement. The lyrics are deep and thought out, many of them political, and many of them dealing with the everyday life of being a punk in Chicago. This band was the starting point for many artists in the great punk bands of the 1990's and early 2000's. Members of this band eventually went on to bands such as Less Than Jake, The Alkaline Trio, The Broadways, The Lawrence Arms, and The Honor System. This really is one of the Greatest Ska/Punk CD's of all time.

If you like this CD I would also suggest:

Operation Ivy- "Energy"
Less Than Jake- "Pezcore" & "Losing Streak"
The Suicide Machines- "Destruction by Definition"
The Lawrence Arms- "Guided Tour of Chicago"

"Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, they are perhaps the greatest ska-punk band that has ever been or ever will ever be. The vocal combo of Brenden Kelly's rasp and Dan Andriano's smooth back-ups, coupled with the blaring horns over mean guitar riffs has never been done by any other band the way Slapstick does it. Simply awsome!"
One of the Best Ska-Punk Albums There is.

"IT just doesn't get much better than this. Every single song on this cd is upbeat, fun, loud, exciting, and darn catchy. Alll the songs have the perfect mix of punk and ska. Just enough punk and just enough ska. I love it. It's also perfect party music to jam too. I really enjoyed this album."
