Pennybridge Pioneers is one of Millencolin's most emotionally compelling works yet, largely dispensing with the ska-punk shadings of past releases in order to concentrate on a straight-ahead, melodic punk-revival format. Bad Religion guitarist and Epitaph head honcho Brett Gurewitz produced the record, which features some of the band's best songcraft to date, and even dips into acoustic balladry (naturally enough, on "The Ballad"). ~ Steve Huey

After Swedish skatepunkers Millencolin dropped their first full-length, Tiny Tunes, in 1994, the group quickly assembled their follow-up, Life on a Plate, the next year. Both discs were originally offered in Scandinavia only, but after Millencolin began achieving substantial chart success in their home country, the group signed with Epitaph Records and this sophomore effort made its way to American shores in 1996. Millencolin's evolution toward a more song-oriented pop-punk sound is most evident on standout tracks like "Killercrush" and "The Story of My Life." The melodies and guitar riffs are tight and catchy, and the band's unique Scandinavian take on the crowded, some might say stagnant American punk subgenre of the time is as refreshing as it is accomplished. ~ Vincent Jeffries

So-Cal-styled skate punks from Scandinavia, Millencolin's sophomore effort For Monkeys absorbs the influences of Operation Ivy, Bad Religion and the like and spits it back out as taut, melodic hardcore with a decidedly European twist. ~ Jason Ankeny

The wide-eyed punk rock of Millencolin continues to improve on Home From Home, their follow-up to the bizarre No Cigar EP. Where that release showed the band experimenting with heavy metal dynamics, this album brings them closer to the post-Hüsker Dü sound that major labels unsuccessfully tried to harness in the early '90s. Don't worry, the band hasn't turned into the Fretblankets overnight. Instead, their songs seem to have a better grasp of atmosphere and their sound is much more filled out than before. "Man or Mouse" is a great opening track, blending the hard assault of Bad Religion with the moody throb of the Afghan Whigs. "Punk Rock Rebel" is a ska-tinged barnburner that pays tribute to the punks that inspired the band to pick up that lifestyle, while "Happiness for Dogs" is a frustrated ode to the yearning that comes with being a young dirtbag. A few tracks still harken back to earlier years, especially "Botanic Mistress," but they do so with a mildly poppier twist than before. This album showcases a band that is not afraid of growth, and luckily they have not taken the easy way out yet and rehashed the simplistic punk of their early years. Home From Home is easily one of the best albums in their catalog, and any fan of melodic punk rock should give this a listen; there are some great songs to be found here. ~ Bradley Torreano

After Epitaph's re-release of Millencolin's sophomore outing, Life on a Plate, became an unqualified success, the label decided to offer the band's other Scandinavia-only full-length, Tiny Tunes, to American listeners. Warner Bros. had expressed some displeasure regarding the debut's artwork and title, so after Millencolin's Swedish label home, Burning Heart, changed the record's cover and title, it was shipped across the Atlantic in 1998. The aptly renamed Some Old Tunes features much faster, more traditional punk anthems than Life on a Plate. There are enough catchy choruses and dynamic arrangements to satisfy pop-punk listeners impressed with the Swedish outfit's first U.S. disc. Leading off with the well-crafted standout "Mr. Clean," Some Old Tunes is an unrelenting collection of raw, energetic songwriting that includes other highlights like "Diznee Time" and "Leona." Fans of Millencolin, and '90s pop-punk in general, are sure to enjoy Some Old Tunes, a disc that might not be quite as accomplished as the group's other American offerings, but one that still deserves a strong recommendation. ~ Vincent Jeffries

When Nikola Sarcevic's first solo project, Lock-Sport-Krock, was released in 2004, fans were shocked by how different it was from his work as Millencolin's lead vocalist. Instead of embracing the sort of brash, stomping, boisterous punk that Millencolin is known for, Sarcevic the solo artist moved in a much calmer, more introspective folk-rock/adult alternative direction -- minus the rest of Millencolin, Sarcevic favored an approach that drew comparisons to John Mayer and Gin Blossoms rather than NOFX, the Clash or Cock Sparrer. But the Swedish singer didn't become a full-time solo artist, and Kingwood -- his first post-Lock-Sport-Krock album with Millencolin -- finds him hell-bent for punk once again. This 2005 release doesn't contain even the slightest hint of Lock-Sport-Krock's singer/songwriter aesthetic; Kingwood is punk all the way, and the Swedes spare no passion on melodic but in-your-face offerings like "Mooseman's Jukebox," "Farewell My Hell" and "Shut You Out." Guitarist Erik Ohlsson has claimed that Kingwood is, as of 2005, "our best, most focused record yet"; the 'best' part is questionable, and many longtime Millencolin fans will insist that Pennybridge Pioneers is still the band's crowning achievement. But Ohlsson certainly speaks the truth when he describes Kingwood as focused; Millencolin does bring a lot of conviction to this material, which thrives on the sort of simplicity and gut-level rawness that old-school punk was known for back in the late '70s and early '80s. Kingwood isn't as essential as Pennybridge Pioneers, but it's still an inspired, enjoyable addition to Millencolin's catalog -- and while Sarcevic has a lot of potential as a folk-rock singer/songwriter, it's good to know that he can still belt out punk with a lot of passion and fury. ~ Alex Henderson
