Ten Years and Running
Tooth and Nail
· Ten years and three chords later MXPX releases a greatest hits compilation.
Comprised of recently re-recorded classics, vintage MXPX and the token live number, this 19-song collection is a musical snapshot of a punk band that deserves to get its due. Short and sweet, the songs on Ten Years and Running make for a tight little MXPX primer, and provide proof that Blink 182 should just hand over half of their royalty cheques right now. The chunky guitars mixed with self-effacing vocals are as potent as high school crushes and as enthusiastic as a long-weekend kegger. No message here, just a great bunch of punchy punk rock numbers that will no doubt inspire a visit to the MXPX back catalogue.
