Best album to come from 3rd wave ska

This album changed my perspective in my musical experiences as a youngster. Solid State 14, the follow up to their SKAteboard Music, came out at the height of the "summer of ska", 3rd wave movement. It easily was on par for great success along with Reel Big Fish's "turn the radio off" and The Aquabats "fury of the Aquabats", but received less than half the success. To me, this album was my Weezer blue. Solid State forever will be one of those albums that opened my mind to a much broader range of what a ska band could be. MSh was definitely one of those bands that did not receive the respect and success they deserved. A year ago this album would have never been found in stores, or on the Internet. Believe me, I tried for a great while to do so. Thanks to their recent revival at a reunion show in Pomona CA, this gem is now available to all on iTunes! Enjoy the sounds of the 90's as I did in the 90's!
