Customer Reviews

among their top 3 albums.

Both live and on the album, these are some of the slackers' best songs. They went for, and achieved, a very 60's vibe on this album. Glen's 2 songs (Workin' overtime and Run til we can't outrun) are classic glen and Go Go Go is absolutely classic Vic.

If someone had never heard the slackers this (along with wasted days and peculiar) are the albums I would point them towards.

You can't go wrong.

My favorite Record since Self medication and the Question.

Great return to first wave ska greatness. Brings to mind “Close My Eyes”. Quality songs, great mood/atmosphere. Just generally upbeat and happy music. Vic and the buys really knocked it out of the part wit this one. By the by this did NOT come out in 2003, but in 2016. Considering their last album, the great Rocksteady Swindle (not counting the radio, which was pretty good) was a little bit of a letdown, this really is a breathe of fresh air. There are moments of pop and alternative mixed in with the reggae, ska, Jazz, and big band music. You both hear the band stretching their comfort zone a little and staying true to what they do best. Well done! Spaceman 3104 is the greatest bit of mood/space they’ve created since Information Error.
