4.5/5| Posted August 31, 2011
MxPx's second album showcases a more mature style from the band. They have clearly learned from their previous album. The quality and production sounds much better, the songwriting is more tight and flowing, and the introduction of Tom Wisniewski really brings a more versitile sound to the band. While most of the songs are excellent, a few songs fall into the punk cliche of speaking out against politics. While these songs sound good, they just take a bit away from the excellence previous.
This is still a strong punk record that really defines MxPx as a band.
Great CD!| Posted March 11, 2008
Personally I like MxPx's older stuff, and this CD is one of my favorites! With catchy choruses like those of "Punk Rock Show", "Money Tree" and the albums' title track, "Teenage Politics" all of which merited their own music videos. This album birthed other fan favorites such as "Sugarcoated Poison Apple", "Study Humans", and "Americanism".
