Rock n' roll. That pretty much sums up the Utters. If you've never listened to them before, inserting this album will give you that chill you used to get opening presents on Christmas morning. The Utters fuse bay-punk riffs with street punk-attitude, mixing in the occasional country-western and rock-a-billy influence. Think: Social Distortion meets One Man Army.

"A Juvenile Product..." is nothing less of perfection. 16 blazing tracks that have you screaming along, without skipping through a track. Although the Fat-Wreck overproduction quality is present, the Utters manage to maintain the rough and jagged sound they have come to trademark.

To sit and list the best songs would be pointless. Every song is incredible. The only comment I will make about and individual song would be 'The Next In Line", which most of you may have previously heard on a Fat Comp. If not, it begins with an acoustic intro, a-la-GNR, then explodes into uptempo riff and chorus, slows down again with another mellow guitar solo (once again I'm feeling GNR here) and then, BAM! Right back at your ass.

Buy this album. Steal your friend's. Just keep your grubby little mitts away from mine.

Great album. These guys never really put out anything sub-par. Saw them live for the first time on the tour for this album in '97 w/ newly re-united Descendents. S.U. played well, but sadly I recall the crowd was full of uninspired kids in Bouncing Souls T-shirts barely moving.

My favourite album ever. Next In Line is the best song ever written.

this album gets a 10 because it is named after an elton john lyric.

This is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Almost all of the songs are perfect.

Ok sickboi here is where you get me back: I was working on a review for this as well...weird huh? oh well props to you now..and a great album, The best by the Utters

Well said. "Juvenile Product..." really is an amazing album. It's definitely superior to "Five Lessons Learned," which is good, too. It might even be up there with "Less Talk, More Rock" by Propagandhi and "Let's Talk about Feelings" by Lagwagon as one of the best albums Fat has ever released.
