AllMusic Review by

Atticus Clothing is a company started by two of the guys from Blink-182 and they sponsor lots of bands and "extreme" athletes. This compilation of 24 different bands is somewhat of a soundtrack to their company. The acts on here are really not too bad, with everything from the hardcore stylings of American Nightmare to the screamy punk of Finch to everyone's favorite indie rock/mainstream band, Jimmy Eat World, and the Chicago punk stylings of Alkaline Trio. Most people will no doubt recognize almost all of these acts and the best part is that the large majority of them perform previously unreleased material. There are a lot of people who would buy this for an unreleased Blink-182 song alone, but throw in unreleased tracks from Rival Schools, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, A New Found Glory, and Glassjaw and teenagers all over the country will no doubt be buying this up and singing along in no time. Like many of the bands on here, this compilation is no doubt bound for success.
