Let It Happen by MxPx
Reviewed by Alex Figgis
Post punk pop laden 'rawk' paradise! Over 60 minutes of music, spanning the band's entire recording career featuring rare b-sides and Bob Moon sessions placed for the first time on disc, 'Let It Happen' also contains demos of unreleased material ('Easier Said Than Done', 'Important Enough To Mention' and an alternative version of 'Want Ad', and more popular songs ('Move To Bremerton', 'Life In General', 'Sorry, So Sorry'), as well as the entire 'Punk Rawk Show' seven inch single. Raw and intense, this latest offering serves both fan and novice alike with a superb musical college, by one of Christendom's finest hard-core/punk rock bands. What 'Let It Happen' lacks in production, it makes up for in sheer energy and vibrancy; where MXPX remain both tight and focussed throughout, cultivating and enhancing a commendable live feel to their material. A worthy collectable for hard-music buffs!
