Product Description

Mxpx ~ Let It Happen

Amazon.com

As obligatory as the greatest-hits package and tribute record for the retiring veteran artist is the rarities compilation for new artists moving from the underground to mainstream record-buying consciousness. That said, Let It Happen, a collection of B-sides recorded by MxPx for Tooth and Nail Records before the band was signed away to A&M, comes off as a much stronger record than a simple attempt to cash in on a departing band. And, given that it contains 32 songs--clocking in at nearly 72 minutes--the value is certainly good, too. But the real strength of the CD lies in the short, aggressive, and unbelievably catchy pop-punk tunes MxPx churned out in spades. The songs they relegated as B-side material actually make for one of MxPx's more satisfying albums. And though these songs come from many different sessions stretched out over three years, the disc is surprisingly cohesive, thanks in no small part to new mixes by longtime MxPx producer Steve Kravac, whose sonic fairy dusting gives these tracks a Hüsker Dü-like roar. --Bradley S. Caviness

This is definately one of those CDs where you may have to do a little track skipping to play all your favorite songs in one sitting. However...with 32 tracks, that takes nothing away from the overall quality of MxPx's sweet compilation of B-sides, unreleased material, and different versions of released songs. There is so much to choose from...from the melodic pop-punk of GSF to the old school MxPx style of Small Town Minds. Not to mention a few of the alternate versions of songs released on previous albums...such as Chick Magnet, Do Your Feet Hurt, Want Ad, South Bound, and a few others. Oh yeah...and out-takes from songs they considered putting on On The Cover,all written by different artists, but played to the awesome punk music of MxPx. Like Sick Boy, Swing Set Girl, Never Learn, Begin To Start, and Oh, Donna. Definately worth the money. Although if you are just starting out on MxPx...go grab Life In General and Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo First. Get this CD third.

first off i'd like to let some of you know that this is not mxpx's follow up to slowly going the way of the buffalo.it's not new at all.all these songs have either been b'sides/outtakes/unreleased or just plain hard to find.alot of the songs are from the 7" mxpx released over the years.the cover songs(social d's sick boy,ritchie valens donna and a few others were on the 10"double lp for on the cover)alot of these songs are not new to mxpx fans.there are a few unreleased songs on here and a few cool alternate versions(want ad is better on the first mxpx album)and it's cool to finally have all these songs on one cd(and not have to go to the 7" to hear the songs)but this isn't really nothing new.but it is mxpx and it does rock and the songs sound way better,and clearer on cd than lp.if you're wondering mxpx has a live album,at the show(recorded at dc,i was there at that show and philly shows last september)out july 27th and are working on a new album now in seatle for release at the end of 1999-early 2000.-jason harshman

Okay I hadn't listened to this album for three years and one day whilst putting old cd's on my beloved ipod I came across this. My body told me no, for it is MXPX a crybaby band. But my mind gave me reason, for I had enjoyed this cd in my younger years and unfairly turned my back on it. So I said screw it and put it on the ol' pod. So later I'm in my car and I'm like screw it let's see if I still can get down with this and as if it was magic I played the first song and still rememered the chorus and everything! So I rolled down the windows and shouted them out and got busy. So yeah this is a great cd, it's some really catchy fun pop punk and it's... I dunno it's just good. This was back when bands actually you know, had fun and made ALBUMS instead of concepts each time they hit the studio. I'm sorry but lately it's been quite a sad state of affiars. So this stands the test of time, sure the Small Town Small Mind 7" was poored incredably poorly and some of the tracks are real dogs (like that damn Elvis is Dead son) but it's great. Think about those songs you loved in high school, GSF, Swing Set Girl, Never Learn, Sick Boy and such. If they ever made an infomertial for this cd it'd star with something like this:

"Do you remeber your high school days? Such times when the only true friend you had was your cd collection and handful of crappy 7 inches? Well my friend let me show you a product that will bring back those bittersweet moments..."

With the sudden explosion of Blink 182, you think this would pave the way for all punk bands. Well, as of yet, it hasn't. Bands like MxPx and Home Grown have just as much or better music than Blink 182. "Let It Happen" proves this. See for yourself. MxPx is great punk band!

"let It Happen" by MxPx is not what it was supposed to be. MxPx was origionaly a small christian punk band on a small label called "Tooth and Nail Records", a Christian rock label. MxPx played fast, powerful, cheezy, and catchy punk rock that defined a generation of "what happenned to are youth?". They were a little known underground band stuck with their name because of poor handwriting. In the late 90s they signed to a major label and soon after released a horrible album titled "The Everpassing Moment". This album was a major blow to early fans of MxPxs great harmony in songs made entirely of fast drums and power chords. Surprise surprise. Kids with little interest in the underground scene or punk rock were standing in front of a doorway if they further continued interest in MxPx's music and became exposed to early releases by the pop-punk trio. Meanwhile, MxPx was becoming increasingly popular in the mainstream crowd. It happenned to Green Day, it happenned to The Offspring. Finally, MxPx got a break. Just when you thought they were leaving their fast punk roots, behind. TaN(and MxPx), in interest of making lots of money off of the band's big break, through together a few old rare or unrealeased tracks. Easy money. However, what neither were expecting, was an album that came off stronger than any of the band's or Tooth and Nail's other larger releases. This album came off as a perfect 90s punk album. Many bands attempted to make a punk essential like their forefathers The Sex Pistols, Operation Ivy, The Ramones, The Clash, The Misfits ETC. but little could pull it off in the punk scene constantly changing and the music becoming more fitted to a popular sound. This cd is a album that all my friends and me own, and do not even question if it is one of their favorites.Read more ›
