Overview

At first listen Static World View isn't all that different from many of the other third wave ska groups. Vocally and lyrically the album is pretty simple ska. The production level of the album is a little on the low end so the vocals are often difficult to pick out. This is alluded to on a voice-over at the end of the CD that simply states: "What kind of production value do you expect for no money." What sets Static World View apart from much of the competition is the bands stellar horn playing. The brass section features Tyler Jones on trumpet, Chris Rhodes on the trombone, and guest saxophonists James Riley and Pete Wasilewski. Together they play infectious horn patterns that are based on traditional ska, blues, and swing jazz. While certainly not the greatest ska album of its time, Static World View demonstrates the stellar level of musicianship among horn players that can exist within the genre.
