3.5 greatTheManMachine | March 8th 14

A contented but solid romp of mostly no-frills first takes. Possible hints towards the deceleration of their punk+partying lifestyle ("All Outta Angst", "The Desperation's Gone", "Quart in Session") but still down for 45-second government annihilations and classifying Grandpa a grade-A psycho dick - er - psychotic.

5.0 classicRandyfromPennywise | April 5th 07

An often-overlooked album in the extensive NOFX catalogue, this is arguably their finest. SLATFATS showcases some of the band's best song-writing abilities with some of the most adept musicianship seen at this point in their career. The ska influence is obvious, and Hefe's trumpet is given little rest. But it's the variation where this album comes in to its own. Moving from genuine Punk Rock to Ska to Jazz (sometimes in the same song), this album offers up something new at every turn. Even the length of the tracks is the most varied on any NOFX record.

Monosyllabic Girl is the best Punk song under 60 seconds ever, The Desperation's Gone is a brilliant, inspired, fast Punk song and Flossing A Dead Horse is genuine jazz. The record moves along at lightning speed - aided by the numerous short tracks. It's an energetic, fun and creative album, different to any other NOFX record, yet equally at home next to The Decline or Punk In Drublic.
