The astonishingly and presumably deliberately inept artwork of this debut from Californian skate punks OPM helps create a carefully contrived image of a bunch of lads intent on loafing about, doing as little as possible. The threesome's modus operandi--which involves sun, sex, tattoos, getting stoned, and traveling the streets on four small wheels--is cemented by the opening tracks "Stash Up" (a paean to smoking grass and not giving a flying one for anything) and "Heaven Is a Halfpipe" (a surprisingly catchy sing-along about the joys of skateboarding). Menace to Sobriety's boisterous, good-time feel sprawls across its 15 tracks like a teenager on a particularly comfortable sofa, its bleach-top college-rock roots (Blink 182, Sugar Ray) regularly spiced up by Latino piano and horns, ska rhythms, hip-hop textures, and noisy raps. --Mike Pattenden

Wonderful CD from start to finish. Starting with "Stash Up" you have an average rock song; go to songs like "Trucha" and "Unda" and you have something new. Read morePublished on July 28, 2003 by Jonathan Seymour

This album is a good blend of punk, ska and alternative onto 1 cd. On some tracks, they try rap (reality check) whilst on others they try country (undercover freak) whilst on some... Read morePublished on March 31, 2003 by "lukefun"
This album reminds me a lot of the group Sublime, just a little bit more on the rap side. Great songs like Heaven is a Halfpipe, and Otherside (just to name a few)make this album... Read morePublished on December 24, 2002 by "jbuilt"
