Not Quite Worth Killing For

"Music to Kill for is one of those ska compilations that definately has quantity. Twenty-one songs for $3.77, you can not go wrong. However, it is one of many nicely priced quantity ska compilations and its quality is not quite as nice.The CD starts out fairly strong with Wayside, but towards tracks 5, 6, and 7 the songs begin to sound redundant. It is not that the bands playing these songs are bad bands either. Swingin' Utters and Bouncing Souls are great, but the ska-punk sound of the songs just blur together to the point where you can not tell when one song ends and the other begins, unless you are really listening. The album does begin to redeem itself by the end though. 22Jacks remake of Message in a Bottle kind of catches you off guard in a fun sort of way. The Pilfers, who are amoung my favorite ska bands, liven up the album with their reggae influenced sound and the Blue Meanies song, I Fitznik, has that typical ska sound that anyone who likes the genre should appreciate. The compilation does have its high points, but its not up to par with some of the other ska compilations, such as Hellcat's Give'em the Boot. For three bucks though, it is not a bad investment."
