Lifetime, New Jersey's very own melodic hardcore vets, album Jersey's Best Dancers shows them at their peak. Intense, heartfealt, and energetic, this album excels because of it's youthful energy. This album essentially made a bluerprint of the style that bands like New Found Glory and Set Your Goals would utilize to a great extent in their music. "Young, Loud, and Scotty" is a typical break up song lyrically (ala Jawbreaker) but rocks harder than most of the Kid Dynamite Discography, while "Theme Song for a New Brunswick Basement Show" captures the spirit of Jersey lyrically while turning down the tempo a bit for maximum resonance. The album's only issue? It's a touch formulaic and can tend to blend together a bit at times. Other than that, it is certainly a worth addition to anyone's collection.
