LESS THAN JAKE: Greetings & Salutations from Less Than Jake: CD

May 08, 2013

Man, I used to be such a LTJ nerd. That is why it really pains me to say that this—Less than Jake’s ninth full-length disc seems to just be spinning the same wheels they have on the past few releases. Don’t get me wrong; this is a well-crafted pop punk disc that any band of this genre would be lucky to have in its catalog. It is just a bit too derivative of their past releases for my taste. I suspect that if this was your first introduction to the band you might be fairly pleased. There just isn’t anything that sticks out to longtime fans to warrant many repeated listens.
