I've never been a big fan of reviews done by super fans (full disclosure: I own 7 Snuff CDs) but I had to do something. One of my favorite bands is being slandered in their only other review on this page.

Snuff is a fantastic melodic punk band that's been rocking for over 15 years from England, where they are wildly popular. Their appeal seems to have been missed by most Yanks and Canucks, but luckily Fat Mike at Fat Wreck is a huge fan, so at least those of us who get it, can!

"Tweet Tweet" is probably their finest work. The first three songs absolutely destroy, and from there on out we get to hear Snuff's patented mix of pop, punk, and hardcore. They can rock and then suss out a pure joyous pop number like "All You Need."

Few other punk bands can hold down an organ player and a tromobonist and do it this well, especially without sounding remotely like a bad ska-punk band or sounding like their music parts have been tossed on to the song just to have them contribute.

Like the variety in music, Snuff also gives up a variety in lyrics. They can get sentimental and lonesome on "Take Me Home" or just silly on "Arsehole" (refrain: "We're all arseholes. We're a bunch a wankers")

Give Snuff a fair shake and give them the attention they deserve.

Best English band ever.
This CD really has so much variety in and every song is so different yet it's not hard at all to get into every song.
Another good Snuff CD is Demmamussabebonk.

Woot! I've loved this album for quite some time now and I can say I've lstened to it about 500 times. From the impressively hardcore Time Bomb to the sublime All You Need this really does rock the biscuit barrel.

Great review for a great album!

Tweet tweet is a classic in my opinion, and many of the songs on there sends chills down my spine!!

A totally amazing album from start to finish.

I like Snuff a lot, have 4 of their albums but what I can't stand is that I don't own a single album of theirs' that I can listen to from start to finish. These guys seem like a bunch of alcoholics too, am I right in my perception superfan?

Snuff is unique, compared to the cattle like redundancy of alot of fat records. The organ, the voice, its just not been done the same.

Big fans of leatherface, snuff continue on in the tradition of layered and emphatic punk rock. Duncans voice is amazing as always.

For the fan below, if you find the singers voice doesnt cut through the mix, dont ever try and listen to husker du. You wont make it.

i dont even like snuffs sound, but even the production quality sucks. i can barely hear the singer and it must be worse live because he's also the drummer. snuff is one of the worst fat bands.

This album kicks ass. The organ is an integral part of the band. The trombone I could go either way on. Either way, this album rocks ass. One of their best. I like snuff said better, but this is still a wicked album. Rock.
