"Something of a cult album. Part of the Elephant 6 movement. If you only ever buy one album, let it be this."
Tell All Your Friends

"Personally i think 'emo' started here. Even if it didnt this is the best album of the genre. Essential."
The Libertines

"Fights, Pete being thrown out, cancelled shows. All of this detracted from the fact that this is the best album to come out of the UK since London Calling"
For Monkeys

"Albums are best when they remind you of a certain time in your life. This does just that for me aswell as being Millencolins finest hour."
Up All Night
Up All Night
"Perfect chill-out music. A little known Australian band who got a big thumbs up from Bob Dylan. Says it all really."

"Sadly now no longer together. They saved their best for last. Always listen to this before playing the drums. 'on the offensive' is pure brilliance."
Racecar Is Racecar Backwards

"Again, sadly now deceased as a band. This was their first offering and remained their strongest. Jamie Lenman is a great songwriter."

"In my opion this is far better than any Mars Volta offerings. An absolute classic in every sense."
Blackened Sky

"Mon the Biffy. Possibly one of the greatest debuts of all time. 'justboy' is a stand out track"
Cat Empire, The [Australian Import]

"Another Australian band. Rarely travel to England but worth checking out. They have cult status in Oz, even opening the Commenwealth Games a few years back."
Jane Doe

"Essentially this is an attack on the ears. In a genre all their own really. Converge and lead singer Jacob Bannon in particular, display everything that music should be about."
Sing Sing Death House

"Another casualty here, they did make another album after this before calling it a day. This is by far their best. Under 30mins long but neverless will leave an impression after one listen."
From Mars To Sirius

"Little known French metal band. In my top 3 live acts of all time. Marco Duplantier will blow your mind on the drums."
Razorblade Romance

"Released before Bam Margera got his grubby little hands on them. Rarely will you find an album without a 'skipper' track. Well here it is."
Antics

"Perfect to stick on after a shocking day at work. Maybe the coolest band still playing today????"
Youth & Young Manhood
Youth & Young Manhood
"Emerging on the scene looking like Cousin IT on a bad day. Kings of Leon gave people something to talk about (other than their hair), and produced a true genius debut."
A Place In The Sun

"Summertime - BBQ - Beers - Lit........... in that order"
Bubblegum

"Whether it be Queens of the stone age, Screaming Trees, The Gutter Twins or his work with Isobel Campbell, Mark Lanegan turns things into gold. His solo stuff is brilliant.60 a day to sound that rough"
The Presidents of The United States of America
The Presidents of The United States of America
"The Presidents didnt just do 'peaches'. A quirky, warped outlook on life put together with some funky beats and results are clear for all to see."
Favorite Noise

"Ska-punk at its best. Displays all the right characteristics. Fun songs executed superbly. 2nd best live act ever."
United By Fate

"On a par with Neutral Milk Hotel. This album will blow you away. They have also just reformed. 'good things are coming our way."

"Sadly i found out about this band too late to get to see them live. Howver, if they are half as good as they are on the Cd i would not have been disappointed."
Pinkerton

"Slated when it first came out. Only taken seriouslt by the die hard fans, this album could have broken Weezer. Nowadays this is loved by the critics who were previously so harsh."

"+44 the dialling code for the UK. However, they are American. Post Blink 182 Travis & Mark pull off an album 100 times better than anything Angels & Airwaves have come up with."

"Debut album from Millencolin frontman. Has not left the Cd player for months now."
