More a curiosity purchase than anything else, mainly after hearing the "Boxcar" MP3 on the Hopeless Records site - couldnt believe an outfit so exclusively pop had been signed to Hopeless!

Anyway content wise its a gem - a case of quality over quantity which is nice - not exactly the pop punk Sandinista! in terms of length but not a poor moment among the 30 mins on offer - much like classic early 60s pop nothing hangs around long enough to get on your nerves as can be the case with something so obviously geared towards attracting a more mainstream listener, nothing is overworked and the glossy production is dare I say it a breath of fresh air in a pop climate overrun with the likes of The White Stripes, here things are given damn near epic treatments and better for it... and the chorouses cross the barrier of making this that elusive "hey I can play this around my non-punk girlfriend" without being told to turn it off in favour of a Coldplay CD...

When I picked up on the resurging nu-school scene in the early 90s the attraction after the garage rock (wow, see Antony Wilsons 13 year cycle for accuracy here) of Mudhoney and the like hearing NOFX's White Trash was phenomenal - punk being taken somewhere great by people who really could play, great songs with good production values but a passion for the spirit and energy of classic punk - Stairwell provide a post millenial counterpoint here - Disaster could have had a coproduction credit from Brian Johnston of the Beach Boys in terms of the delivery, Boxcar should have infested radio playlists with its insistence and Walk All Over is a track which will be making it onto mix tapes of anyone who owns the album for years to come...

If you dont mind something a bit lighter now and then give this a try - brobably best heard with a beer in a sunny back yard some place.
