All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Streetlight Manifesto's competent, lively ska-punk debut sets jittery, usually very rapid tunes to singer/guitarist Tomas Kalnoky's ultra-fast vocals. Kalnoky also wrote all of the material and produced the record. It's much like hearing a hardcore punk singer supported by much cheerier melodies and varied rhythms than most hardcore punk bands could muster. The lyrics, too, aren't too far afield from hardcore, with their breathless narrative thrust and pumped-up vibes of prickly despair, uncertainty, assertion of individual identity against the odds, and fleeting images of violence.

Streetlight Manifesto's competent, lively ska-punk debut sets jittery, usually very rapid tunes to singer/guitarist Tomas Kalnoky's ultra-fast vocals. Kalnoky also wrote all of the material and produced the record. It's much like hearing a hardcore punk singer supported by much cheerier melodies and varied rhythms than most hardcore punk bands could muster. The lyrics, too, aren't too far afield from hardcore, with their breathless narrative thrust and pumped-up vibes of prickly despair, uncertainty, assertion of individual identity against the odds, and fleeting images of violence. In truth, the actual lyrics Kalnoky's singing are, for the above reasons, often no easier to decipher than those heard on many hardcore punk records, though they're much less grating on the ear. And though they're helpfully printed in the sleeve, he's prone to jamming many words into very little time, so that some of them have to be reproduced in such small print that they're difficult to read. The band does prove itself able to concoct a variety of rhythms and arrangements within the ska-punk format, the accelerations and decelerations adding some drama, the horns adding some spy movie-like creepiness at times, and the frequent use of minor keys distinguishing Streetlight Manifesto melodically from some of the group's competition.

    Excellent for those just entering the world of Ska!

    Absolutely amazing piece of work by several former Catch 22 members who brought in a few others to create a ridiculously genious record which is a great first impression on anybody entering the world of Ska. Very upbeat with fast tempos, heavier focus on orchestral instruments (trumpet, sax, etc) than traditional band instruments which is something that many newer bands are leaving out that contributes greatly to the genre, style, and attitude reflected in Ska.

    totally super mondo awesome

    For those of you that know 3rd Wave Ska, this is basically Catch 22 except heavier on the saxophone and, like that AMG guy said, more minor keys. It's also a little less cheery but a lot faster and in my opinion one of the best 3rd Wave Ska albums i'ver heard.
