The holy grail of 90s third wave ska and also the most successful blend of hardcore and ska. Elegantly written and savagely played.

One of my favorite albums. This was part of the whole punk ska movement. The songs are so fast and catchy. Several members later formed Rancid.

Despite an awfully bad production quality, this 1989 East-Bay album is awesome. It's considered as THE first ska-punk record and I believe it will go down in history as one of the greatest album of the genre. But even if you're not a huge fan of that type of music, you can still enjoy the energy and the enthusiasm that are present in every song. Anyway, this record is among my favorites, and if you like the musical style (and if the sound quality doesn't really matter to you) it should also be among yours too. These guys are real and passionate and you can definitely feel it by listening to the record. It's called Energy, and trust me, it really is.
