Album Review

This summation of Lit's tenure at RCA completely ignores their first effort for the label, rightly preferring to hit the ground running with stuff from Place in the Sun and Atomic. Admit it — this is what you always wanted, it's what you asked for. Go ahead, it's OK — the hipsters aren't around. Released in early 1999, "My Own Worst Enemy" was everyone's favorite Sugar Ray antidote. It was as sunny California as Mark McGrath and company, but informed with a pogoing, drunken swagger perfect for chest bumps and wet T-shirt contests. Lit might even admit that their albums weren't necessarily solid — it was the singles that mattered, and the Orange County residents delivered. Platinum & Gold Collection's liners correctly point out mall rock combo Simple Plan's later co-opting of "Addicted"'s cheeky lyrics, and "Quicksand" is a valiant attempt at injecting Elvis Costello into pop-punk. Though "Miserable" was more memorable for the Pam Anderson cameo in its video, it stood out from the late-'90s modern rock blahs because Lit was jocular where its competition was sweet. Some might recognize the acoustic ballad "Happy in the Meantime" from halfhearted viewings of the Adam Sandler vehicle Mr. Deeds; it appears here in a not-that-different remix form. "Over My Head" is taken from the soundtrack to Titan A.E., while longtime Lit freaks will dig an acoustic version of "Down" and the one new song, the decent "Party's Over." The '90s are the new 2000s!

Former record labels attempt at last buck

RCA Records released this around the same time as Lit released their self titled record in 2004 in an attempt to make some last minute money off of them since Lit was no longer on the label. RCA owns the rights to these recordings and Lit does not see any money. Support Lit and buy their other records! this one is a scam by the label for money! The 2004 self titled release is their best yet!

Lit is amazing.

Im going to have to call it a mix between Sugar Ray and Less Than Jake. Great stuff, My Own Worst Enemy being one of the great anthems of the 90's. If nothing else, you must have that! 5 stars


do they really need any collection albums YET? lol, anyways, if there was any song you needed to get on this album, buy My own Worst Enemy.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

A major player throughout the post-grunge boom of the late '90s, Lit featured the combined talents of frontman A. Jay Popoff, his guitar-playing brother Jeremy, bassist Kevin Baldes, and drummer Allen Shellenberger. The group formed in 1990 in Orange County, California, where it initially performed metal-influenced music under the name Razzle. After changing their name, Lit began embracing a spunky brand of punk-pop that helped attract a local following in California. The group sold out local venues...
