iTunes Review

As the cover art strongly suggests, the party isn’t anywhere near over for the Orange County anthem-rock quintet Lit. This is a band that has played straight through the morphing of post-grunge to pop-punk to emo to screamo. More importantly, The View from the Bottom is the band’s first time back in the studio following the untimely passing of drummer Allen Shellenberger. (Nathan Walker plays drums here.) Ferocious gang-vocals kickstart the opening cut, “C’mon,” a romantic and triumphant love song for young people of the long-hair-and-tattoos set. A heavy and distorted garage-rock riff introduces the following track, “You Tonight.” Here, frontman A. Jay Popoff flexes his larynx, singing impassioned verses before tearing into an explosive chorus wrought with libidinous tension and a “let’s get out of here”-themed serenade. “Same S**t, Different Drink” captures the excitement, drama, predictability, and slow death of a Southern California party, with bouncing melodies, steroidal riffs, a funny John Mellencamp reference, and even funnier self-depreciating lyrics. Vestiges of bygone Los Angelino power pop thrive in “You Did It.”

Finally!! They're Back!!

Can't believe it's been 8 years. But Lit is back and better than ever. This is their best disc yet. Great guitars, huge drums, and of course, awesome vocals. Their sound is a bit different and new here, but most definitely in a good way. And thats to be expected after an 8 year hiatus. However, the new directon seems natural and completely right. And they still manage to harness that classic Lit sound and feel at the same time. A must have for any Lit fan or fan of good rock music. Ive been waiting for this album for a loooong time and i and its even better than i could have hoped. Theres just not any good rock bands like this anymore. Buy this album and crank it UP!!!


:( I never heard of these guys until watching the news the other night so I researched the Slidebar's owner & discovered a few songs that I liked. I thought I was only going to download a couple of songs & wound up buying the entire album. I'm so happy this guy's employee was such a loser & helped me find them! :)

Right this time… got that right. Amazing comeback!!!

I've been waiting for this album for a long time and it was so worth the wait…... what a great comeback!! I'm truly impress that you guys remaining true to your roots….. you guys are Rock Stars!! I'm glad to say your one my favorite bands since the start and really love the new songs, I'm looking forward to seeing you guys soon. I wish you much success and keep rocking!!
