When I bought this CD, I thought of it more as an expansion pack to "I Heard They Suck Live" than another NOFX CD. I had wanted to hear the original versions to the "S+M Airline" songs on the live CD and the rest of that CD. To my surprise, after I bought it I realized that I might actually like this disk MORE than "I heard They Suck Live". However, I have to say I was disappointed with the studio version of "Life O'Riley". The concert version is so much better! Without El Hefe, NOFX ska pretty much su:cks. However, that's not all of it. The guitar (punk) during the chorus is better and has a lot more texture in concert. However I was still satisfied with the studio version of "You Drink, You Drive, You Spill".
Despite the 5 stars, I would have to say that their newer work is much better then this. The greatness of this album just doesn't compare with the greatness of "The Decline" "So long..." or even "Pump up the Valuum". However, There is one superiority "S+M Airlines" has to their newer work: guitar solos. After all guitar solos are what NOFX does best. On here the songs are longer, giving NOFX more time in the beginning to rock it out without any words. Most of the time the vocals don't even start until about a minute into the song. In fact on "Drug Free America" the words don't even start until about 2 minutes into the song. I think this is how NOFX still should be writing all of their songs. However despite these technical improvements, the sound itself is greatly improved in their newer work.
The lyrics have greatly improved as well. I shouldn't even have to tell you that. Just compare the track listing to "S+M Airlines" to "So long.." or "Pump Up The Valuum" and you can tell that the lyrics are better in their newer work.

This is noticeably more raw than the newer NOFX albums but it rocks just as much. The "Go Your Own Way" remix is amazing. Vanilla Sex is also great. I don't think there's a bad song in the bunch.

I am so glad I purchased this album. Although not as good as some of their most recent albums, this album is still a classic and has some really good songs in it. If you are one of those people who wants to listen to NOFX in their early days or simply wants to have the entire NOFX collection in CD, this product is a must have.

S&M Airlines comes in a time when NOFX is struggling to become the band they are today. At this point, they have progressed somewhat as a band but were still searching for that unique sound that everyone loves today.
The sound on this album is more similar to Liberal Animation, but not quite as raw. Songs like Life O' Riley and Go Your Own Way show us where NOFX would be progressing in the future. It shows us the melodic sound of NOFX that we have become quite familiar with. This album features 13 new tracks with songs about Sex, Pornography, Laziness and Procrastination, and Mean People.
The great part about this album is that it contains funny tracks along with a good mix of punk rock.
You won't find NOFX bragging too much about this album or playing the songs too often at their shows, it is definitely not one of their greatest releases. However, NOFX fans can't complain to a band that has only been playing for five years. Tracks worth listening to on this release are Vanilla Sex, You Drink You Drive You Spill, Life O' Riley, and Day to Daze.
Depending on your preference I recommend picking up this disc after you have most of their better releases like Maximum Rock 'n' Roll, Ribbed, Punk in Drublic, and White Trash Two Heebs and a Bean.

In the begining, before there was a wave of "SoCal" pop-punk bands that hit, there was a band who was infamous for there ludeness for immaturaty, and what happens... they are signed to Epitaph, and sold to the public. S&M Airlines, while not the best, was the first album to be manufactured in bulk for Fat Mike and Co. At first, it won't be the most liked album, but then you will here the last few songs. "Life O Riely" is an awesome song, with obvious ska influences, "You Drink You Drive, You Spill" is a humourous, yet serious song, "Screamin' For Change" is well... "Screamin' For Change", and you cannot leave out the hilarious cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way". But don't just listen to the last few songs, go back and listen to the title track, and the "Day to Daze". This album is so great because, well because NOFX still hasn't changed after all these years.

"S&M Airlines" is the first NOFX album recorded for the HUGE punk/indie label, Epitaph, and it shows that it's their first. Yes, it doesn't have the great recording quality as "Punk in Drublic" or even "Ribbed", but it still shines thru all the muffled drums. "S&M Airlines" has blazing solos and metalish type riffs (check out Jaudinced Eye) that are missed on later albums, but the basic punk attitude is still there. Short, sweet and to the point. The only thing that makes this album lack at all is that it was recorded about 5 years before Hefe joined the group. To sum up, if this were recorded with NOFX's lineup of today, it would be one of their best.
