Product Description

Fourth full-length album from Orange County modern rockers features 13 tracks. Parental Advisory - Explicit Content. DRT Ent. 2004.

Amazon.com

When Lit scored a hit with "My Own Worst Enemy" little did the Southern California band know how prophetic the song would be--it became 1999's most-played modern rock track according to Billboard and drove the accompanying album A Place in the Sun to platinum sales. But it also set expectations unreasonably high for a follow-up. When that didn't happen two years later with the release of Atomic, the band lost its major label deal. Undaunted Lit returns with what is arguably its strongest set of songs on this self-titled, self-released set. The disc feels lyrically darker and more personal than its predecessors but the band retains much of its melodic punk-ska crunch in songs such as "Looks Like They Were Right" and "Times Like This." Meanwhile, creeping maturity and the hard knocks they've endured result in unlikely ballads like "Lullaby" and a faithful cover of the Cure's "Pictures of You." Perhaps it's too early to count them out just yet. --Aidin Vaziri

No longer on a major label, Lit still offers similar work to their previous efforts except this time around their earnest dedication to their influences is more apparent. Dropping from RCA was the best thing Lit could have done for themselves and their fans. The limelight is gone, and the band hasn't changed much - proving their love for what they do. And this is what they have since left us with:

1. Too Fast For A U-Turn - An adequate delivery of Lit's expression of RCA's loss of grip. The song offers a vibe of 70's effects placed upon muted vocals and familiar guitar tone from Jeremy Popoff. The ever present "whooaohs" accompany AJ's vocals as they rip through a very evolved Lit peice. Not quite as catchy as, say, anything they've done - but this was a great selection for an opening track because it warns fans and listeners alike that the band has broadened their musical scope while maintaining the pop/rock fusion they have always held onto. ***

2. Looks Like They Were Right - If you have heard any song off of this album, this is the one you've heard. The opening riff has a vibe extremely similar to Queens of the Stone Age's "Know One Knows." Extremely catchy, yet still delivers a more raw sound as the rhythm bounces through distortion and mid-tempo breaks. I'm usually disappointed by singles, but the band went with a good one this time around. While it may be no "My Own Worst Enemy" to casual listeners, it adds a mainstream appeal to an otherwise fan-appreciated album. ****

3. Needle & Thread - An extremely Lit-esque song encorporates melodic guitar and vocals which break into a solo by The Matches' Jon Devoto. The chorus is nearly the most catchy offering on the entire album. This song does absolute justice to the Pop Rock genre.

As i've said in previous Lit cd reviews, "Lit is awesome!". They have continued to release high-quality, original music that is a joy to listen to from beginning to end. Each song has a unique quality and feel to it, and contains catchy guitar riffs, memorable vocals, and awesome guitar solos, which are short but VERY sweet. Lit doesn't mess around with unnecessary bells and whistles. They cut straight to the point, and get the job done in the most effective way. This cd is in league with their last two albums "A place in the sun", and "Atomic", both of which are unbelievably good (buy them now!). Lit is definitely one of the most under-rated bands of recent times, and deserve more credit and support than they get. If you already like Lit, you'll love this album, and if you haven't heard them before, you're still sure to enjoy it. People who are yet to experience the goodness of Lit, may want to start off with "A place in the sun" or "atomic", but any cd will show you what Lit has to offer. Buy it now!

Lit's 4th album is much darker and heavier affair and is probably intended that way after being dropped by a major record label !!! But this made them a better band and this is a very classy record for fans of Lit and anyone who likes hard rock! !!!! They deserve more credit for being a great hard rock band with attitude! !!!
A very solid album !!!!

Quite possibly the most underrated band of their time, Lit has undergone several changes in the past three years since their sophomore album, "Atomic" was released. They were dropped by their label RCA, started their own record label Dirty Martini and had kids and got married. That supplies plenty of happiness and frustration for a hard-working band such as Lit. It also makes their unappreciated music sound even better.
From the musical depths of Orange County, Lit's first album scored huge with college radio in 1997. Then, in 1999, their multi-platinum disc, "A Place In The Sun" put them in the forefront of rock mainstream. They had two monster hits with "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Miserable" (which had a memorable video featuring hottie Pamela Anderson). Things were going smoothly until the band released the little-known "Atomic," which hardly made a mark on the charts, mainly due to the lack of promotion from RCA. Lit parted ways with the label and began recording their fourth full-length, which has taken almost three years to arrive. It's the anxious moment Lit fans have been craving.
That leaves a lot to be desired then. When bands take forever and a half to follow-up an album, most times it's disappointing. But, fortunately for Lit, that should pass them by.
The album continues to stick by the sound Lit has cemented, and there's nothing extravagantly new here, but it displays a power Lit never has before. It sounds more heartfelt and edgier than "Atomic". It's almost like a greatest hits album, reaching into every album's track list and taking all the elements to combine them into one.

Lit once again lights it up with another rollicking power pop success. This band just keeps delivering hook after hook saturated with guitar crunch and snarling vocals. This CD rocks hard and is their most consistently exciting release to date. This one is entirely self-produced and the mix is music to our ears. Hats off to the Popoffs!
