I'm pretty sure this is LTJ's first full length, as they have a fuck load of early stuff out there somewhere that i will never see. Nontheless this album is one of the best punk/ska albums anyone could get their hands on. 19 tracks a special hidden bonus, with songs like 'Black Coffee', and 'J.

I'm pretty sure this is LTJ's first full length, as they have a fuck load of early stuff out there somewhere that i will never see. Nontheless this album is one of the best punk/ska albums anyone could get their hands on.

19 tracks a special hidden bonus, with songs like 'Black Coffee', and 'Jen....(far better version) -Punk, but not at all plain boring punk songs thrown in the mix. However you do start to wonder why they repeat same stuff about 20 times in one song, with the same music, then re-release it again, and again, (maybe he really does care that she doesnt like him anymore...?)

The majority of songs have punk/ska elements, good examples being, 'Johnny Quest...(notasgood version) and 'Where in the Hell is Mike Sinkovich' (personal favourite), All songs provoke the senses, and i dont at all mean just the ears, I mean Body Movement and get those feet moving. Sing-along, and if you dont know the words, all songs have plenty of room for 'WHOA's' and backing vocals.

Best songs (for you geeben downloaders, try before you buy {you better buy assholes}):
'My very own flag' (good whoa's)
'Johnny Quest thinks we're Sellouts' (get a later verion)
'Growing up on a Couch' (hair raising horns at the end, i love it)
'Where in the hell is mike sinkovich' (perfect ska with perfect vocals and near perfect blend of punk/ska, really)
'Boomtown' (just beautiful music)
'One last cigarette' (just doesn't sound the same without listening to 'Short on ideas' fist, as they blend. Awsomeness)

This album is awsome. Each song has its own little story behind it, throw in the great music, the whoa's and have 19-track long skank, and die a happy punk.

The BEST LTJ album, but sorry, Losers, Kings and Things We Don't Understand was their first full length

dude who cares if their on warner. don't be a fucking dork, losing streak, your professed favorite jake album(and most other jake fans), was on capital records, also a major.labels don't matter, its the music.i think their most commercial sounding album is boarders and boundaries, what w/ the extreme lack of ska on the album. this album has shitty production and alot of filler songs. i'd put it thrird after losing streak/rockview. some outstanding songs, and their playin here saturday! u know i'm goin!

i like this cd but the recording sucks. this album is tied with losing streak as there best, but fuck why are they on warner fuck it. it don't matter there last album was not up to snuff. maybe the drummer should let someone else write the songs

you forgot shotgun as one of the best songs....

Anonymous (July 23, 2002)

why are we giving so much credit to asian man records? yes they're a good label. but let's not forget that all they really did was rerelease the album. you should thank the now defunct dill records for originally putting the thing out...then thank asian man for keeping it available after all these years

lots of love for asian man records but give credit where credit is due. No Idea is a more important part of LTJ history. Also the kick ass punk/ska scene of Florida in the mid late 90's has a bit to do with their success. And they are just good people.

who doesnt have respect for these guys?

cawknocker (July 23, 2002)

solid album, very raw full length debut for what i consider the best punk/ska band ever. although i like losing streak the most, then hello rockview this cd is still very good. shitty low budget production though, thats why they redid jen and johnny. but 'where in the hell' 'shotgun' 'liquor store' 'my very own flag' are all classics and some of less than jakes best songs ever. brings back memories of the days when ska was booming and i was first getting deep into punk and the like.

Wow, it's just bad review after bad review these days, isn't it?

As a side note, LTJ plans to release a remastered version of this album sometime later this year in honor of their 10th anniversary as a band.

Great album.

I think less than jake are the ones to thank for the cd.

Wyld_Stallyns_Rule (July 23, 2002)

And who do we have to thank for the birth of these guys....Asian Man Records. Enough said, I think, unless I haven't said enough.....
