Ska–punk is back!

5 out of 5 stars

I always presumed that no band could ever top Catch 22's Keasbey Nights as my all time favourite ska-punk album, but Streetlight Manifesto might have just done that.
It is hardly surprising though, given that this band has been formed by members of the original Catch 22 lineup.
This album totally rocks, it has that Catch 22 sound but it's like they have gone up a level, with each song almost perfect.
The songs range from fast-paced ska-punk songs to slower more ambient skanking tunes but all have a brilliant horn section backing up the great lyrics and outstanding vocal talents.

If you like ska-punk bands such as Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Catch 22, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, etc…... then you'll love this!
