Product Description

CD.1999 DATE.

Power pop is a catch-all term used to describe the music made by any band that knows a minimum of three chords and plays them loudly through electric guitars. Because of this, power pop is often frustratingly dim. Lit are the exception. On A Place in the Sun, Lit sound like Nirvana minus the angst, replacing it with Cheap Trick's melodic sensibility. Their slice-of-Gen-X-life lyrics are comprehensible, wryly personal musings of love, lust, alcohol, and the abuses of each. "My car is in the front yard / And I'm sleeping with my clothes on / Came in through the window last night / And you're gone," frontman A. Jay Popoff relates in "My Own Worst Enemy." Popoff sings in a from-the-gut, pure rock & roll voice that never needs to scream to be powerful or emotional. The hooks, played by brother Jeremy Popoff, are bigger than a cruise-ship anchor. There is absolutely nothing unfamiliar about any of these songs, but A Place in the Sun is one of the meatiest albums of its ilk, leaving its counterparts in the dark. --Beth Massa

Every song on this cd is very catchy and will get you in a good mood.

Fashionable sound, good guitars, catchy tunes, and memorable lyrics have made the album really unforgettable.

My own worst enemy is the best song, but I think the whole album is great.

Lit's second LP, A Place in the Sun, is a catchy, melodic set of guitar-driven songs. They scored the biggest rock radio hit of 1999 with "My Own Worst Enemy," a song that made clear that a guitar riff could be just as catchy as a sung hook. Lit has an impressive mix of songs on this album. Their first disc, Tripping the Light Fantastic, was a prime slice of So Cal punk, and their roots show on the title track, as well as "No Big Thing" and "Four." The also know how to make exceptional semi-ballads like their "The Perfect One" and their third single "Miserable." Most of the album's 12 songs don't even come close to ballads or punk; they take the middle road and produce great songs like their second single "Zip-Lock."

Unlike most of Lit's contemporaries, they don't sing only about the negative. "Lovely Day" is about finding pleasure in a simple, ordinary day. "Drive" is about the special place in someone's heart occupied by a car, namely a vintage Cadillac. Don't get me wrong, they've got their share of negativity. After all, how positive can a song with a title like "Miserable" or "The Best is Yet to Come Undone." Lit also comes up with some memorable hooks, especially "The Best is Yet to Come Undone." A Place in the Sun also finds Lit broadening their sound. They incorporate horns on "Happy" without making it sound like typical, generic ska. Hand-claps carry on throughout "Lovely Day." The use of a mellotron on "The Perfect One" gives the song a spacy, expansive feel.

Lit's breakthrough album is a very impressive and strong collection of songs. They have great variety and definite potential for the future.

This is a FANTASTIC album! Several songs are even better than "My Own Worst Enemy," the one they play on the radio. Be sure to check out "Four," "Lovely Day," "Happy," and "The Best Is Yet to Come Undone." My only criticism is that their ballads don't compare to their harder songs, but that's only 2 songs on the entire album. With good marketing, this should go platinum if it hasn't already.

I'm a 32 year old guy, and when I listen to A Place in the Sun, I feel like I'm 18 again (in a good way!). This is a good dose of real, energetic rock. It's a far cry from all the wimpy, post-grunge so-called rock acts these days who seem to take perverse pride in the fact that they can neither sing, nor write, nor even play very well. Lit does in fact rock and, as we all know, real rock is more than just playing one's electric guitar as loud as possible and screaming unintelligible verses into the mic. Lit have great vocals, accompanied by wicked guitar licks and slammin' drums. Their lyrics are insightful and witty. Their energy and enthusiasm are addictive. What more do you want? With a little luck, Lit just may rescue us all from modern-rock hell. Rock on!

When I first got this cd I was expecting to just get the song "My Own Worst Enemy" because I had heard it wasn't that good of a cd. But then I tried it out for myself. I got this about 4 monthes ago and I still listen to it. It has some really good guitar work in "Ziplock" even though the lyrics are kind of corny, "Miserable" adds catchy lyrics and a good beat to make probably the best song on the cd in my opinion, and then you have "My Own Worst Enemy" which gave Lit a spotlight. This is more of a punk rock album I think than pure rock. It's still good. I really reccomend this if you like punk like blink 182 exept these guys add a little more rock sound. BUY IT!

This CD flat-out rocks, and it made me a LIT fanatic! I really loved the song "My Own Worst Enemy" that i kept hearing every where, but it wasnt until I heard "Ziplock" that i was convinced this band was cool and I wanted to try their CD. So i got it for my birthday, and it quickly became my favorite cd EVER! i love Lit's sound in general, and their lyrics are catchy and creative, and consequently I can listen to this cd over and over and never get tired of it. Also, unlike many other cd's i have, on this cd i can play the whole thing and not skip any songs, because they are all fantastic. Some of my favorites are the classic "My Own Worst Enemy," "Ziplock,"Lovely Day," "Quicksand," etc. I can go on and on, there is really no weak song or aspect of this cd. if u want to purchase a phenomenal cd, (by a band that rocks in concert--by the way...03-05-00), then BUY THIS! peace

I loved this CD. I bought it having only heard their first single and loved the whole record. Four is a great song that makes you want to get up and rock out. My Own Worst Enemy was one of my fave songs of '99. Down is an okay song, not their best. Miserable is a great rock ballad with a funny video. No Big Thing is their most underrated song. Zip-Lock is my second favorite Lit song, as it is very catchy. Lovely Day, Perfect One, and Quicksand are great rock songs. Happy is the one very different song on the album, but is great. The Best Is Yet to Come Undone and A Place in the Sun have the best vocal hooks on the CD. Buy this CD for sure!
