Take Warning: Songs of Operation Ivy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Becky Byrkit
A decade after the inception of seminal ska-revival, an impressively diverse roster of bands endeavors to doff their alternative/punk/speed-reggae hats to Berkeley's Operation Ivy. Whiffs of the musically mod from rap to neo-swing are present, from Reel Big Fish's yelling-in-the-street-sound on "Unity" to "Sound System," by the hip militia, Cherry Poppin' Daddies.

We assume bands like Green Day and Dance Hall Crashers literally would not exist without the capabilities of Ivy's self-proclaimed allegiance to the Clash, yet in exactly this spirit of tribute we hear from the Aquabats, the Hippos, Teen Heroes, Home Grown, and the ever-fun Long Beach BDub All-Stars stuffed with ex-members of Sublime. In many ways a perfect way to inject a diverse sound into ska, which needs more than its fun simple self, sometimes, to stay alive.
