Album Review

Similar in sound and approach to their previous release for Capitol (1996's Losing Streak), Hello Rockview shows that Less Than Jake have not lost their appetite for party-laden ska-punk. Horn bursts, rough 'n' melodic vocals, and high-energy performances from the other instrumentalists will please longtime fans, but Hello Rockview doesn't really break any new ground for the band. Still, tracks such as "Help Save the Youth of America from Exploding," "History of a Boring Town," and "Last One Out of Liberty City" would sound perfectly in place at a backyard party, or blaring from the stage of the Warped Tour (on which the band has played on several different occasions). Although many have been tempted to lump Less Than Jake in with the current ska-punk bandwagon, the truth is that they were one of the first bands to combine the two styles back in the early '90s.

Customer Reviews

Only gets better with age

i'm so glad they finally released two of their biggest, if not, best albums in their back catalogue that are live versions. i've been an LTJ fan for quite some time now, and this just hits the spot for the inner teenager in us all

Finally!!!

This is hands down the best live band ever!!! I've seen them in ATL and Asheville,NC and I can honestly say I never get tired of them. Keep it up guys I'll see you again when you come back to the south.

Incorrect info

Why does iTunes list this as released in 1998? And why is the base album review as if the album is not even a live performance? This album was released March 1, 2011 and is a track-for-track live performance of the original 1998 studio album. It's a great performance; if you like this be sure to check out the Losing Streak live album, too.

Although formed in 1992 as a power pop trio with heavy punk leanings, Less Than Jake steadily transformed into a ska-inspired punk band with the addition of a horn section. Vocalist/guitarist Chris Demakes, bassist Shaun, and drummer/lyricist Vinnie Fiorello formed the first incarnation of the group, which took root in Gainesville, FL. After Shaun became the group's roadie, however, he was replaced by bassist Roger Manganelli, who picked up the instrument just to join the band. During 1993-1994,...
