Wow, i recently got into Swingin' Utters and bought a whole load of their albums, This is one of the best along with Dead Flowers, Bottles, Bluegrass and Bones. I love the split with punkrock and a country feel. For me the highlight tracks on this album are 'Five Lessons Learned, 'I Need Feedback', 'As Sure As I'm Down' and 'Fruitless Fortune' which is the last track and i think it is amazing. Changes he feel of the album as it has a great violin accompaniment. If your getting into this band, get this album as one of the first!

Kinda of a strange record for the utters on this one, since for this release they were caught without a bass player for most of can hear them trying out a few different things, a very guitar driven album,without losing the classic swingin utters song can also start to hear the emergence of their more folky influence as to come on later releases... Overall a good record, for beginners i would recommend one of their other releases however.

Este disco es bueno aunque un poco monotono. No hay nada extraordinario en el. Comienzan a definir su estilo. La cancion "Tell me lies" es muy buena.

Best Swingin' utters album i own, folky - punk rock, i bought it based on the fact that i have 'juvinile product of the working class' and 'dead flowers bottles bluegrass and bones' - (both of which kick ass), and i had also heard the song 'promise to distinction' on a fat sampler many moons ago. but the swingin utters are fast becoming one of my favourite bands, and are definitely one of the best bands on fat. but aye, buy this record, youll be singin it in your sleep for the rest of your life! vive le utters!

I love how the Swingin' Utters blends some folk/bluegrass into their music. This is a very solid CD overall; my favorite tracks are Five Lessons Learned, Promise to Distinction, Picture’s Perfect, Bastards Life, As You Start Leaving, I Need Feedback, and Unpopular Again... but hell they’re all good! I suggest you also get "Dead Flowers, Bottles, Bluegrass, And Bones" along with this one.

As with all CD's, I went through stages of liking this one, but at first I hated it. I have started listening to it again recently and realised how good it is - really catchy and like the other guy I can't find my favourite song because they're all so good.

I would definitely not recommend it to a fan of hardcore because it's very different with acoustic backing guitar, piano, violin and an accordion it's almost folksy at times but with fast drums, cool guitar solos and good vocals as well.

Alright, so if your going to buy an album of one of the greatest street bands ever. Make it this one you Assface. This is one of those CD's that you can't really find a favorite song because they're all so friggin' finger lickin' good!
