  • TAKE A BREAK drags punk rock's premier cover band back from their respective day jobs with NOFX, Lagwagon, and No Use For A Name for another trawl through the pop charts of yesteryear. Highlights include an "Isn't She Lovely" that's a collision of Gary Glitter and Stevie Wonder and a version of Lionel Richie's "Hello" that will only seem scary if you haven't heard their take on Aretha's "Natural Woman."
  • All the above are delivered with the energy and genre-mixing panache you'd expect from these seasoned veterans, with enough variety and respect for the originals to avoid what could have been a one-dimensional exercise in punkifying old hits. Cases in point are their take on the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There," which manages to incorporate snippets of The Cars' "You're Just What I Needed," and their "Anarchy in the UK"-laced interpretation of Vanessa Williams' wedding-dance special 'Save the Best For Last," both of which should be heard to be believed.
