For those that aren’t familiar with them (frankly, you should be ashamed of your self), Screeching Weasel have been a stalwart of the pop-punk scene for 25 years. Back in ’86 they took up the Ramones’ torch and have since created a bonfire. With legions of dedicated fans and a whole slew of acclaimed releases under their belt Screeching Weasel have firmly entrenched themselves as living legends in the punk rock world. Not satisfied to rest on their laurels, the band recently reformed and completed their first new material in 11 years, First World Manifesto. Comprised of 14 tracks, First World Manifesto has all the hallmarks of an instant Weasel classic. From the short fast punk rock standards bearing Ben’s trademark ire (this time directed at message board tyrants, scenesters, and blind followers) to the traditional mid-tempo girl oriented songs, it’s all in there. Musically, First World Manifesto delivers on expectations with their emblematic guitar driven sound ringing throughout, due in no small part to the return of famed guitarist Dan Vapid. Additionally, they enlisted Mike Kennerty (All-American Rejects) to take the reins as producer, and threw in some backing vocals by Dr. Frank (Mr. T Experience) and Joe Queer (The Queers). First World Manifesto is the masterpiece that Weasel fans have been dreaming about for the past decade of silence.

Great album. This is what SW should have done for the last, whatever years. Highly recommended.

It sounds like SW, but not shitty SW.

Having been a big fan of Lookout-type bands in the mid to late 90s (Green Day, MTX, Parasites, Vindictives)I think this album has to go down as one of the best albums by a pop-punk band. Its definitely as good as the 'classic' Screeching Weasel CDs like Anthem and My Brain Hurts.

This CD is not a complete rehash of classic screeching weasel which is a good thing. 11 years later why would I want the same old same old. I already own the same old weasel and have loved it for years. The first time I heard Screeching Weasel was 1990 and I've been a fan ever since. There are a few lackluster numbers here but the highlights more than compensate. Hell, 'Beginningless Vacation' and 'Come and See The violence inherent in the system' would work as a single worth the price of this album. If you threw 'Baby Talk' and 'Bite Marks' on that you'd have an ep that I'd have been happy to throw more money at than this entire album sells for. The highlights on this show that despite whatever else can be said about Ben he never lost his ability to write a great tune and I'm here to review the music, not the man.
