Less Than Jake: Anthem

Sound — 8
Ahhhhhh something miles away from the usual rock of today. This is some kind of Ska/reggae/punk rock sorta thing. Fans of Sublime rejoice! The sound is really great. Most bands...the usual power chord. But this band has that plus the generic ska upstroke chords. But I really find innovative about this band is the variety of instruments. Not only bass/guitar/drums like most bands, but also a sax and trombone!

Very Good use of the simple 11 22 33 44 rhymes. If you know what that means. The singing is very easy listening. Not the same ol screaming for 45 seconds just cause you can kind of stuff.

Overall Impression — 10
Very good album. Go buy it. Its worth every penny. I love the way that its just far away from the mainstream and they don't care about that they still come out with new albums. I love this album.
