These guys have totally refined their sound into the very best melodic punk rock available. I have had this CD for 2 years and I still consider it one of my best music purchases. From the moment Under Lock And Key blasted from my speakers I was hooked. MxPx is just awesome. If you compare this CD and Blink 182's newest album...it's not even close very few of Blink's new songs are even listenable. Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo has 16 tracks and 15 of them are awesome(I don't care much for Fist VS Tact, but thats not really how MxPx plays so it doesn't bother me). If you want to pick up one of the best punk albums I highly suggest you purchase this.

While there are many different opinions as to which MxPx album is the best, I think that this one really shows the true talent these guys have for Punk (with a nice taste of pop). While my dad says that the lyrics to "I'm Ok, You're Ok" and "The Downfall of Western Civilization" are meaningless, I am of the opinion that they are the best tracks on the album. And other people may call "Fist vs. Tact" a song that doesn't on the album, but it gives it a nice little spark that makes this cd that much more interesting to listen to.
The opening to "Set The Record Straight" is so awesome, you have to listen to it, along with "The Theme Fiasco", which is sort of "Mission Impossible" style Punk. This album is far better than their previous cd, "Life in General", which had a lot of annoying riffs and plain, uninteresting drumming in many of the songs. I consider this album the "comeback" from "Life in General" :-) .
All in all this cd is a must buy for any secular or Christian punk rock fan out there, particularly fans of Green Day and The Ataris.

By looking at most all of the other reviews about this album I came to the conclusion that most everyone likes this CD as much as I do. Of course some said that it wasn't as good as Life In General, don't get me wrong (L.I.G. is a great album) that is ridiculous, this album was so well put together, smooth catchy beats and the lyrics and the way Mike Herrera sings them go so well with it. Some of the songs on L.I.G. just do not sound good, period, simply put. I like lots of the songs on L.I.G. but definately not all, I honestly am saying I enjoy EVERY song on Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo, my favorites are Under Lock And Key, Set The Record Strait, I'm OK you're OK, and Inches From Life, the rest rock too. MxPx is also probably the most well known Christin Rock Band out there. And God Rocks!

Mxpx has always been a fav. of mine alongside NoFx .. This band is very creative in what they do and live they are also great from what ive been told ..
p.s : ignore teenieboppers and their ''this aint punk etc.'' and ignore those wannabe posers who were never born in the 70's but pretend to be .. the true poser is the one pretending to be from another generation , truely pathetic ..

I would just like to say how awesome this cd is! While all the other reviewers are sitting around arguing about whether mxpx is a christian or punk band, they are missing the actual quality of this cd! It makes no difference whether it's christian rock or not, they are still the best! I bought this cd after The Ever Passing moment and have also listened to their other cd's and this has got to be one of, if not their best. Every single song is full of energy and is good quality music! I really love song numbers 9 and 3, but there isn't one that I don't like. There is no justice in trying to describe how incredibly excellent this cd is, so if you don't have it, go out and buy it now!

I've met the fellas from MxPx and have spoken with them for a bit about this whole thing about people thinking they are a christian band. I am getting sick and tired of people calling these guys a christian band. Yes, they are christians but they aren't a christian band. Creed sings about God more than MxPx does and people don't label them christian music as much as people do MxPx. Just listen to this album for the love of the music. They have positive music that isn't about drugs and sex. What's so wrong with that? They are probably the most mature punk band out there. This is probably the best emo style music I've heard in a long time.

The Bremerton Trio introduced me, and got me addicted, to punk rock. Where would I be without them? At the tender age of 13 I bought this the first month it came out and listened to it about 3 times a day. I literally could not get the songs out of my head. The bottom line is, this stuff is catchy, loud, and fun. What more could a teenager ask for? Nothing complex, just good music to rock out to. I still spin it every once in a while for the nostalgic affect it has on me. MxPx has been a staple in the pop-punk scene for quite a while and this is probably my 2nd favorite on their long list of albums.

This is a great new-school punk cd. It's got some great drumming and everything else is pretty good. Punk is not really known for it's flashy guitar... The lead singer's voice is very good for this style music. Very catchy tunes. I could listen to this cd over and over. These guys are Christians but the way they put it is that they are "Christians in a band." Their lyrics aren't overtly Christian like Zao or P.O.D. but if you really look you can tell they are. I would highly recommmend this cd to everybody. My dad likes it and he's not that much of a rocker.

This is probably the best mxpx album out right now. It might even be better than Teenage Politics. And that album rocks! You can tell that they put a great amount of time into this album. I think that it is cool that they are considered a christian band. There is no other band like these guys. Under Lock and Key is totally an awesome song. In my opinion, it is the best song they have ever produced. Other noteworthy songs are The Downfall of Western Civilization, Whats Mine is Yours, and Get With it! This is a great album, so go support these guys and buy it.

SGTWOTB is without question the best album mxpx has made. there is not one song that is unlistenable, i have had this album for over a year and i still play it constantly- personal favorites are whats mine is yours and under lock and key. This album seems better put together, then "the ever passing moment", which seems very artifical. the lyrics are deep , and very relatable, and if your a guitar player that can play the basic barre-chords you'll have a feast playing it yourself, same thing goes for bass players. GET THIS ALBUM
