Maxeen is such a great band and I still remember the first time I looked at this album cover and just fell in love with it right away (that kind of thing doesn't happen to me often). I just HAD TO LISTEN to the album, and honestly, it's one of the best decisions I've ever made!
This album is the perfect debut for Maxeen and you can catch pretty much every dash of their influences when they started (especially The Police, which is a no-brainer) and GOSH, the chemistry!!! Seriously, Jay Skowronek in the drums, Shannon McMurray in the guitar and Tom Bailey in the vocals and bass are a match made on a summer night in 2002! Too bad they're not a band anymore.

I been listing to Maxeen for many years since Burnout 3 introduced me to it. I finally decided to buy it on CD. Brings back lots of great memories of me and my cousin when we were younger, We thought "Please" was a great running song. We're now 16 (Me) and 13 (My cousin) and still love this band, Sadly there's no one in our lame generation that listens to great music bands like this, the young generation is missing out on music like this.

It's an exciting time for music when a few bands are starting to break from the monotony created from a pop-centric radio dial. Rock is resurging with renewed interests in what made it rock in the first place. Remniscent of retro greats such as the Clash and Police, Maxeen's debut truly rocks! This trio draws you in with their hard-driving rhythms and melodic whimsy. "Please" opens with kicking drums and energy to burn. The album maintains this high energy from start to finish without exhausting the listener. What amazes me most is how beautiful their sound truly is without losing the feel of a rock album. Check out the swooning vocals on "Lead Not Follow" ( I get chills hearing it) and how skillfully it leads into "Soleil" to get an idea. I found myself moving to the rhythms and singing along after my very first listen. Twelve tracks and not one disappoints. Fittingly, the final track is titled "Good Enough". For a freshman attempt in a fickle industry, I'd say they're far better than most and the best I've heard in a long time.

I had never heard of Maxeen until I went to a concert and saw them perform. They blew me away from beginning to end and it only took that one show to convince me to buy the album at the merchandise booth. I spoke with the lead singer/bassist Tom about how their performance convinced me to buy their album and he was a friendly chum. After listening to the album carefully, I am in awe. This album is driving rock music at its best. The album is fast and fresh, reminding me a lot of 1980s bands like Loverboy, but better, if I dare say. If you enjoy good old punk music, check this band out and see them live!

I enjoyed most of the songs on here. I don't have to talk much about why I like it. I don't have much to say here.

I had wanted this CD for a while, having heard their tracks on a few Warped Tour Samplers and Epitaph comps. They have a rhythmic drive and welcome variation within each track. And while this genre isn't very open to change or depth, I appreciate that Maxeen does venture for some creativity. I bought this particular version of the album because of the price (at the time) and bonus tracks. The best songs are still the few found on the Warped Tour compilations, but I did like the acoustic version of Soleil (only on the Japanese version); easily compared to Hey There Delilah or other semi-sappy pop-punk ballads. The standout tracks are Please, Strangers, and Lead Not Follow. If you're looking for a slightly more substantial alternative to the Plain White Tees or New Found Glory, pick up this Side One Dummy debut.
