Intelligent, amusing punk rock,

This review is from: Best of-Tba (Audio CD)
The Mr T Experience (MTX to their fans) played, fast and loud punk (pop) rock. The songs are written with intelligence and a sense of humour, in the tradition of other bands such as The Damned, The Dickies and The Vandals. They were contemporaries of the more commercially successful bands, Green Day and Rancid.
For the newcomer to the band the ten (approx) studio albums can be a bit daunting? Where do you start? This Japanese import is a good place. Although it is an import it is reasonably priced and it covers a lot of ground. 'Alternative is here to stay' is particularly catchy.

Some of the earlier tracks are a bit rough and ready as they precede the band developing their trademark sound/sense of humour. If you like this then I suggest you try 'Revenge is sweet and so are you' next. an excellent album from a band in their prime, including the hilarious 'Lawnmower of Love'.
Thanks for reading this review.
