"Pennybridge Pioneers was the first Millencolin album I bought and I absolutely loved everything about it. The next album I bought was Same Old Tunes. I didn't think it could even compare to Pennybridge. I almost lost faith in Millencolin because of it. The reason why I gave it three stars was because I'm sure those of you who like more of a ska sound instead of a punk sound will like it better. I just bought For Monkeys and I felt that was alot better than Same Old Tunes and just under the quality of Pennybridge Pioneers. For Monkeys is making me look forward to buying Life on a Plate."
The Best Punk Album Of All Time

"Yes i am serious, this is the album that shaped my future as a punk listener. I first got a taste of the swedish punkers in 1993 on a bodyboard video that was released in Australia, it featured Disney Time and Take It Or Leave It, and from there i was hooked. It wasn't until early 95' that another video was brought out with Einstein Crew on it, that put me into action, i went straight out and bought it. My life hasn't been the same since. Millencolin have released several good follow up albums, all were good but none had anything on the original. They slowly got more polished but, the impact and overall influence it had on me will never be surpassed. They are all good songs, it starts with a song that everyone knows and loves, Mr. Clean. Disney Time and Dance Craze follow the same good style. Da Strike could pull any person out of a bad mood, House Of Blend is lyrically brilliant and Leona another punk anthem. But real joy comes with the last two songs, which i think are Millencolin's best Einstein Crew and Take It Or Leave It. If you are a true punker, you must have this cd, even if there new found popularity has put you off them."
