Customer Reviews

great live band

Went to see them at the shout it loud tour with less than jake, goldfinger, and suburban legends. Great band, good sound, and all of them are really chill. I'd recommend seeing them live because honestly I think it sounds better, but for someone whos just going to buy the cd or a couple songs I recommend Please Forgive Me or For the First Time.

The fact that Transition only has two reviews is proof positive that ska is truly dead and no one is paying attention. Too bad...
