The trouble with lots of pop-punk bands and their releases these days is that the songs have little variety to offer from one to the next. That said, MxPx, in its best album to date, is an exception to the rule. Plenty of variety abounds this 17-track treasure chest of power punk. If you like pop punk or melodic punk and haven't heard MxPx, prepare to fall in love with their sweet guitars and ultra-catchy melodies. There's also plenty of variety in drumbeats--hardcore OR slower pace--MxPx isn't limited to one or the other. "Middle Name", "Move to Bremerton", "Doin' Time", "Chick Magnet", "Southbound", and "Destroyed By You" are just a few of the great songs on this must-have CD for MxPx fans...or punk/rock/pop fans in general.

I own 9 MXPX CDs and have to agree with most of the reviewers that say it's their best. I love "Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo," and "Let it Happen" - well, ok, I love them all, but just about EVERY song on this disc is hard and fast and raw. Yuri is pounding the life out of the drums and Mike is belting out lyrics like he's not using a mic. I'd have to say that if you don't own any MXPX CDs this is a good one to start with. If, however, you already have some but not this one, then this is a MUST OWN since you'll find it will re-energize your love for this band. Also check out their side project "Cootees" and certainly the hidden gem of a band - "Slick Shoes," very similar to MXPX.

This is the quintessential MxPx album. The first album they truly sound produced and professional. Despite it's polished exterior this record is not lacking in memorable melodies, youthful lyrics and blazing drums. Tom is many times quoted as saying "Life In General is when I first felt like we were a band." Break out fan favorites such as "Middlename" and "Chick Magnet" are still MxPx show staples. My favorites being "Today Is In My Way[11]" and "Southbound[17]." This album instantly brings back memories of me listening to this CD as a 17 year old kid singing along to songs like "Doing Time" and "Wonder Years." I still remember what my dad said one of these times I was listening, "His voice isn't that great but it has a lot of energy." Ha ha. My dad later become an MxPx fan during the "Slowly Going The Way Of The Buffalo" years. On July 17, 2010 MxPx performed the whole album from beginning to end in Las Vegas Nevada at the Hard Rock Casino's "Wasted Space." They later did the same at Seattle's famed "El Corazon." Buy it. Turn it up. Stop not enjoying it.

This CD is very good. It has 17 tracks. All very good. In case you didn't know, MxPx is a Christian punk rock band. Compared to some of their other albums, Teenage Politics for instance, it's basicly the same kind of music. In this album they sing more about life in general. Hence the name. Some of the main things they sing about are girls, their hometown Bremerton, and of course, growing up. As in Teenage Politics, they also sing a lot about government and politics. There is no swearing or crude language in this CD. Don't let the mohawked hair or the earings fool you into thinking that they are stupid teens trying to get public attention. At first you may think they sound exactly like Green Day, but MxPx's lyrics are worth listening to, unlike Green Day's.

If you like bands like Blink 182, and New Found Glory, you'll love this CD. This is MxPx at their best. It's pop punk, and there is none of that fake stuff they tend to do, where they try to be all hard. You can sing along with this entire CD and never get tried of it. MxPx is still a good band but nothing is better than Life in general. Sure it's user-friendly punk, but it's still REALLY good. Sure it's Christian rock but it's not preachy, like their old stuff, and it's not too cheesy. There are some great underline messages in all the songs like Do your feet hurt, which is about being in love but also about waiting until you are married before losing your virginity. So if you don't have a big problem with Christian rock or Pop Punk, get this CD, it totally rocks!

This is one of MxPx's best recordings. This CD definately has some of the best sounds produced by this group. All of the songs have a good beat and understandable lyrics. Although it dousn't have very many references to Christ or God like they've had in their previous recordings, it is still a good CD. Also, the lyrics to the songs are clean compared to many of the songs people may hear in today's punk music. The less 'hardcore' sound is definately more catchy and enjoyable. A must have for any collection whether you like Christian music, punk, rock, country, pop, R&B, Rap, hip-hop, Nursery Rhymes, Dogs, cats, sheep, cows, ferrets, chinchillas, parakeets, eggs, beef, chicken, lamb, veal......Great CD!(or cassete tape, of vinyl record. Whichever you prefer)

this album is a MASTERPIECE. starting with the opening words of middlename and ending with that awesome guitar riff in southbound, there is not one dull moment. i cannot believe how good this cd is. how did they do it?
1. middlename: 10/10, what a perfect way to begin a cd. the lyrics and the guitar are just perfect.
2. my mom still cleans my room: 10/10, i love the drums in this song, and the title is very cool too.
3. do your feet hurt: 10/10, this was the first mxpx song that i fell in love with. the lyrics are awesome, yuri goes crazy on the drums, and the guitar is very catchy.
4. sometimes you have to ask yourself: 9/10, i love the lyrics of this song. i also love the way that yuri switches up the drum beat several times during the course of the song. its a little short, but its still great. i actually like the live version a little better.
5. the wonder years: 8/10, the original name of this song was life in general. i like this song alot, but nothing really in particular sticks out. it blends in very well with the rest of the album.
6. move to bremerton: 10/10, this song is a masterpiece in itself. there is not one flaw in this song. its one of those songs that just leaves you in awe.
7. new york to nowhere: 7/10, there's nothing particularly wrong with this song its just that nothing stands out. by itself, this song would probably get a nine.
8. andrea: 10/10, wow!! this song totally rocks!! i want to marry a girl named andrea... or delores or cristalena.
9. your problem my emergency: 7/10, the lyrics in this song are very cool but nothing else stands out incredibly.
10. chick magnet: 10/10, this might be mxpx's most popular song ever. its not my all-time fav, but that doesnt mean its not good enough for 10 stars!
