This is the best album i have ever bought. After hearing My Own Worst Enemy on MTV about a year ago i bought it straight away and have enjoyed it ever since. Never got board of it and can't wait to they come touring in the UK.If you like Greenday and any other bands like them this album is sure for you. Lit are massive in the states but have only released a few songs over here. They did a song for the film Titan AE which is not on this album. I am a great fan of Lit and all you rock/punk rock fans out there must buy this album

i have to admit that when i heard this album first i wasn't too impressed, but after the 2nd time i couldn't get enough of it and still cant! I first heard of lit from the song "My own worst enemy". I liked this song so much i thought if the album is as good i wont be disapointed - and i wasn't! As i said earlier it's one of the best punk albums i have heard in quite a while.... 4/5!

This album is a must buy the sound is really cool. A. Jay's singing has really improved since Tripping The Light Fantastic. My favourite songs on it are My own worst enemy, No big thing, Four and A place in the sun I gave it such a high mark because it is so good. All Lit fans who haven't got it already go out and buy it, it's money well spent.

1999 was a good year for rock music. The main reason for this is the surprise emergence of Lit. Following their debut 'Tripping the Light Fantastic', they come back with the fantastic sophomore effort 'A Place in the Sun'. Literally fusing the essence of summer into 12 awesome songs, Lit have created the ultimate party feel-good album. The songs range from waking up with a monster hangover (the classic 'My Own Worst Enemy') to regretting a lost love ('Ziplock'). My personal favourite song has to be 'Lovely Day', a divine melody featuring one of the best choruses ever.
This effortlessly catchy album is better than their follow-up album 'Atomic' (which is still brilliant), and light years ahead of their debut. If you ever need a boost after a hard day, this album will take it all away and make the sun shine, at least for a little while...

This is still one of my favourite albums, after being replayed many times over many years. I like every single track, which is unusual as I've found that some artists will fill the space around their popular singles with lower quality tracks. This is not the case with A Place in the Sun.

For me this is a bit of a summer soundtrack, and listening to it always puts a smile on my face. The album passes through different moods, with upbeat tracks like 'Happy' and more chilled out songs like 'Miserable'. The best thing about Lit is that they are actually really good musicians; the tracks are written well, played well, recorded well. If you have never bought anything by Lit before start here because it is an excellent album!

This was the second of the three Lit albums that I bought, and I can honestly say that it is the greatest of the three and one of my favourite all time albums. Right from the start all the way through to the end, every track fails to be bad; they're all brilliant. The major stand-outs are 'My Own Worst Enemy', 'Down' and 'A Place in The Sun'. Every song is different in its own way, which is a good thing.
This album deserves 6 Stars, it's just a shame that option isn't available.

This album contains some of the catchiest rock songs I have ever heard. The first time that I ever heard of Lit was when I saw them playing at a music festival, and I felt that they would have difficulties capturing the energy of their live show in an album. How wrong I was! Nearly all of the songs have catcy crashing riffs which complement the slightly dark depressing lyrics well. The lyrics though are not this band's strongest point, something they seem to acknowledge by sticking with their non-sophisticated yet satisfyingly familiar three-chord by-the-numbers rock. The songs have constant high energy, yet fortunately Lit do not resort to screaming overdriven guitar noise, instead going down the arguably more traditional route of a chorus/riff breaking in after a quieter period - 'The Best Is Still To Come Undone', my personal favourite, even prompted my rock-hating sister to almost play air-guitar when it really kicked in.To be fair, 'A Place In The Sun' contains nothing brilliant or innovative, just catchy rock with some great hooks done very well. This is the sort of music that can appeal to all.

I bought this album purely from having heard ' My own worst enemy ' . I was expecting to find the other tracks were not as good - but they're just as amazing - if not better! I love Limp Bizkit, nirvana and most other rock bands, but now Lit are amongst my favourites. Ajay Popoff's voice is gorgeous. The lyrics are great, the tunes are catchy and the album is well worth buying. Love it.

Firstly, I love every song on this album!Its just to cool for words!The mood is chilled and funky, yet u just try and resist singing along! Much better than 'Tripping the Light Fantastic'because its less rocky and messy or, dare I say, evil soundin! Im lovin A.Jay's vocals, esp. on 'Four' 'Zip-Lock' and the lyrical masterpiece 'Miserable', which has gotta b heard 2b believed!

I bought this Cd after reading the reviews of other people. Personally, I think that this CD is excellent. All of the songs have great depth and the guitar and drum work in every song is great. My favourite songs are 'Four' and My Own Worst Enemy'. Please, do take the advice that you are given, because Lit 'A Place in the Sun is an album not to be missed... by anybody.
