2000 is (not) the year of NOFX! But don't listen to the hype; listen to the record. Pump Up The Valuum is more clever, more irreverent and more crude than NOFX has ever been: and hot on the heels of the unprecedented The Decline, an amazing 18 minute punk-a-thon, NOFX come slamming back with 14 instant classics (in about 32 minutes).

Pump Up The Valuum combines some of NOFX's ... Read more in Amazon's NOFX Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best but worth owning 16 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is definately worth adding to your NOFX collection. For years I avoided it because I listened to people who stated it was too roughly produced or that the tracks weren't written well. The first bit is true, but that adds to the charm; the second point is a pile of mistreated steak-knives and I implore you all to go to epitaph's website and download "Here come the neighbourhood". If you don't like that then don't get this album, and don't buy ribbed either. If you do like it then buy this album, it's not Punk in Drublic but the truth is that NOTHING is like Punk in Drublic.

Can I just say that out of the many groups I have listened to (and my inclination is more towards Hendrix, Clapton, Led Zeppelin etc.....) this group, being though they are punk, play what can only be regarded as the finest guitar/drum duet and some of the best electric blues for a group not normally inclined towards it.

for all those people who got on the nofx bandwagon after punk in drublic or heavy petting zoo.this was nofx first album really,re issued on epitaph after ribbed.this album is punk rock at its very best,but if you still live at home with your parents,beware they will not approve.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good album, but quite different than their other releases 13 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
if you grown to like nofx from their later releases like punk in drublic, or white trash, two heebs and a been, then chances are you won't find this appealing. this album was from their earlier sessions where there was more of a metal/grind/hardcore influence to their sound. they still have their humor and satire in their lyrics, which makes for some amusing listening experiences. so, if you like nofx for their lyrics and their do it yourself attitude, regardless of how they sound, by all means buy this album. if you like more of a pop punk, softer melodic sound, then buy their later releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars P-U-N-K ! 23 Jun 2005
By B. J. Rutledge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay. So here's the thing. The word 'punk' gets thrown around these days more than a baseball at Fenway. The whiny sops who claim to be punk bands these days should take a good, long, critical look at themselves in the mirror, then play this album until their ears bleed and they cry for their mothers. While it is true that this NoFX album has a noticeable heavy metal guitar influence, there is no denying the raw agression, speed, message and sense of humor on "Liberal Animation." All of the best aspects of real punk are on display here; loud guitars, spastic drums, off-key vocals, and plenty of attitude. Lord, I do love punk...

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw?Bad? No just Good old School PUNK! 14 Dec 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great punk cd. Yes it took me about five listens to get into it but after that you get familier with the lyrics and there are some great songs that are true about vegetarians. As far as Nofx this is there rawest album. Overall a good punk cd, but this is not five star material. Overall the vocals are off on almost every note, but who cares it sounds great, yet it does get sort of old. If you like old punk music then pick this up, if you are more picky about your music then pass this one up.

Shut Up Already- 8/10


Here Comes The Neighborhood-10/10

A200 Club- 8/10

Sloppy English- 7/10

You Put Your Chocolate In My Peanutbutter- 6/10

Mr.Jones- 7/10

Vegetarian Mubmo Jumbo- 8/10

Beer Bong-8/10


I Live In A Cake- 6/10

No Problems- 6/10

On The Rag- 10/10

Truck Stop Blues- 7/10

Overall there are no real bad songs, but it does get a bit repetitive. There are some really short song, and some range up to about 3:30. A good punk cd from '91 that only the true punk fans should pick up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to those who downplay this album 30 Aug 2005
By Hoser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the type of album for all of us punk fans to thrash around to. The sound here is very harsh, not for pussies. The guitar work will blow you away, and Fat Mike writes the funniest lyrics! Get this if you like thrash punk with a silly twist. Actually, this may appeal to some metalheads too, so if you're into 80's metal you'll be impressed with the speed thrash and metallic riffs that show everywhere on this album.

Do not listen to those who downplay this album. This is weird but unique and in-your-face hardcore, not the pop-punk stuff they've been putting out since after this release. It may not have the best production quality, but on the other hand it is very raw and will kick your a$$. Go out and buy this if you know what's good for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars hands down, BEST thing NOFX ever touched 30 Sep 2004
By brain injury - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
best punk/thrash album ever!!! the intensity of eriks drumming on this record is second to none. they take the early 80's hardcore style with super fast drum rolls almost every other measure, amazing DRI-esque (1st album of course) short guitar leads, and a bass tone you can actually hear.

this album pisses off everyone: peace punks, vegetarians, girls, people with VD, the PC

the weird timing of the accents in the beginning of "A200 Club" (and the whole riff in general) was brilliant. "You Put Your Chocolate in My Peanut Butter" is so fast and crushing as well.

all these other people that reviewed this album don't know what they're talking about. if you think it's sloppy, you've never listened to anything except mid to late 90's NOFX. If you like this record check out Adrenalin OD, Nip Drivers, Neos, Stikky.

why didn't NOFX continue to play stuff like this? it was way better, and personally, i think they have been playing crap since 1992. maybe they wanted to play more polished pop punk, but still, look at your fan base now fat mike, none of these 12 year old pixie girls would have dared to go to NOFX show in the early 80's.
