All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Survival of the Fattest is one of the many periodic samplers put out by Fat Wreck Chords with the aim of enticing consumers to acquaint themselves with the label's roster by offering a great deal of music from as many of their artists as possible, at a very low price. As a listen, Survival of the Fattest is somewhat inconsistent, since not all of the bands on the label are at the same level, but there are quite a few catchy moments that will most likely interest punk and ska fans in checking out some of these groups further.

    worth it for the me first song alone

    A lot of great tracks from some fun bands, but the entire album is worth it for the Me First and the Gimme Gimme's cover of 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' that is only available on this compilation. They don't 'punk' it up virtually at all, instead doing little more than putting more power into the rythm and speeding things up a lot. It's one of those songs that grabs your attention and is far catchier than it has any right to be. Plus, Spike Slawson is a very good singer, particularly for punk, and the Swingin' Utters frontman does great justice to all of the great singers who've tackled the song before him.
