MxPx is back with a new album and a new sound. This is the third MxPx album to come out within a year or so (Let It Happen and At The Show being the other two). This is MxPx's 5th actual album release. (Pokinatcha, Teenage Polotics, Life In Genral, Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo -- not including On the Cover or the Move To Bremerton single) What does this all mean? Nothing really, just stating facts.
The Ever Passing Moment. It's tough to say how I feel about this album. This was released on A&M and Tooth and Nail Records. This album is so "poppy!" It's not punk. Its not even pop-punk. Its pop. Pop-rock. Now this begs the question "Does this mean MxPx finally sold out? Converted to the Mainstream?" Well, this little boy's answer is "NO." I really think they have matured. New influences (i.e. Elvis Costello... the Clash). A new sound. Very Catchy. Very Poppy. Good. I think they have put out better stuff, but this is still very talented. And they deserve the credit. It's a GREAT "driving down the road with the windows open on a hot day" album.
Overall, the album is good. Not something GREAT, but definitely good. Worth buying. I give it 7 punk points out of 10. Recommended if you like Elvis Costello, Blink 182, The Ataris, The Clash, Midtown, a New Found Glory, Green Day, etc.- Review date: 6/3/00, written by Chaz Murphy
