5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest debut album ever 27 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I became aware of Catch 22 at the Reading Festival in 1999 when a guy was selling a punk/ska fanzine with a Victory Records sampler CD included. The CD had the title track Keasbey Nights on and it totally blew me away. I had heard things like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones before, but Catch 22 are harder, faster and as a band, tighter.
Musically, the band are superb. Both the guitars and bass are very strong but equally tuneful. The C22 bassist plays in a similar style to the bassist from Rancid, walking basslines and very fast picking. The drummer is amazing, very fast and some truly wonderful fills. Catch 22 play fast ska/punk with a wonderful horn section to back them up. The horn section, in my opinion, completely steal the show. Carefully placed throughout the songs, there is a saxaphone, a trombone and a trumpet to add to a melodic and almost soulful sound! Each song is simply a work of genius. Play this album and you will smile, the lyrics are touching, honest and amusing!
If you are a musician you will pick up your instrument and play along. I simply cannot rate this album high enough. I have recommended it to almost everyone I know and each person has then recommened it to their friends. Its simply wonderful, the perfect album to accompany you on a long drive in the night.
There are other ska/punk bands out there, many are much more well known than Catch 22 but somehow being famous like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones or No Doubt would ruin the beauty of the record. It is the best debut album ever. There really is no question about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ska's Finest Hour 17 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
As soon as your hear the first ten seconds of album starter 'Dear Sergio', you're hooked. The soaring brass melodies, the relentlessy fast guitar and the razor-sharp drum and bass sections, all held together by the sing-a-long choruses - this is the album all ska fans have dreamed of.
The first five tracks are flawless. The title track is perhaps ska's greatest song, while 'Sick and Sad' and 'Day In Day Out' will have you dancing around your house like a loon.
The pace slows down for 'Walking Away', a chilled-out jazzy number that allows you to relax on the couch and slowly sway your head.
The tempo is instantly sent back up after this, and by the end of the album you'll have danced so ridiculously that the neighbours won't know what's hit 'em.
The stand-out track of the album for me is 'Riding the Fourth Wave', a hugely infectious instrumental.
The one disappointment is the last track, which has a chanting chorus far to similar to Pennywise's classic Bro Hymn for comfort.
Overall, if you love/like/accept ska music, you need this. If you don't, you're missing something great.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOO YEAH!!! 5 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album expecting a good ska album to listen to on the occassion when i'm in a bad mood. I found this album to be so much more. I never stop listening to it. It is light-hearted, but not to the point where it becomes annoying, its energy packed to the point that i want to skank every time i listen to it and its just awesome. If u like ska and havent got this album, I ask the simple question, why? This is just, in my opinion, a classic of ska and should be in anyones music collection(Except for old people's, garage rude boy's and new wave towny's). Just buy it!!!!!!

This one of the best cd's I have bought in the past 6 months. I personally believe that this can be rated along side such greats such as Goldfinger's Hang-ups, Less Than Jake's Losing Streak and NOFX's Punk in Drublic which all rightly earned 5 stars. This is not a CD with a shelf life which makes a change. I listen to this more often than anyother CD in my collection. This is deffinately a CD for every punks collection, hard or soft core. Catch 22 is deffineatly a band to watch for the future. Their best song undoubtable is Kristina she don't know I exist with fantastically original lyrics and an amazing 2 minute solo in the middle which has a very fresh and off the cuff feel to it. This is a fantastic album and rightfully deserves 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keasbey Nights 15 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
As far as Ska-punk bands go, this record is probably the most varied of it's sort out there. Sublte jazz and funk influences here and there, the occasional and very slight metal influence, but all in all it's pure ska through and through. This is the ska-punk holy grail. Don't hesitate - this is a classic!

Also, once you've bought this you can then go and get Alone in a Crowd, which is just as brilliant.

What are you waiting for?
