Rock Steady Performance

Another great record in the long line of excelent records. Way to go boys. If you like the Slackers, you will like this record. Ska Music!!

Slackers Fans Will Love

Ok so let me break it down for you. Saw these guys premiere this album at their show recently and the only thing bad I can say about this album is that they sound even better live. Nothing can electronically capture the tone of glen pine and Dave hilliard on the brass section or the vocal energy. But this is one of my favorite albums, I actually bought it on vinyl and let me tell you if you love the slackers don't even think twice buy it, and if your looking to further develop your ska taste buy this now.

Bangin' new album put out from the guys you love to the most. This album is cetainly going to be liked from the long term fans as well as the newer crowd alike.

You'll surely be hooked with the more mellow of songs such as "Because" as well as the more upbeat ones like "Thank you", largely reminiscent of their former Self Medication. This one surely doesn't dissapoint.
