"MxPx have built their legacy on consistently solid pop-punk. That hasn't changed on the self-released Left Coast Punk EP. The band have continued to distance themselves from current pop-punk scene in favor of breakneck tempos and Mike Herrera's trademark snarl. Aggressive guitar and bass work give "One Step Further" and "Desperate To Understand" the same sense of urgency as MxPx's old material, but Herrera hasn't lost his ear for melody. "The End" is an ode to youth and friendships and recalls the pop charm of The Ever Passing Moment and Before Everything And After without the kitschy lyrics and sugary production." - ALTPRESS.COM
"MXPX delivered the goods on Left Coast Punk and represented it well." - THE CLEVELAND LEADER
"West coast pop punkers MxPx have come out with the appropriately titled "Left Coast Punk" EP, which takes that band back in time to a melodic "The Ever Passing Moment" meets the ground-breaking rapid force of "Life In General". The first four songs take the fast-paced punk rock style of their early years and combine it with dirty guitars, a driving bass, some well-needed gang vocals, and Mike Herrera's utterly sharp and distinctly high piercing vocals. The verses are completely in-your-face and remind you of the transient punk scene that formed in the early '80's, but then is split by some of the most memorable choruses MxPx have written - just think of "The Ever Passing Moment" era, but minus the sappiness." - WAY TOO LOUD
"'Desperate To Understand' has all the hallmarks of the band at their best..." - PUNKTASTIC
""One Step Further" fires away tight skatepunk with all cylinders maxed out. It takes just half a minute to reach the first chorus, and I'll be damned if you aren't singing along to "One step closer that's a far away, one step closer and I'm proud to say, one step further from the man I was yesterday" after just one listen to the track. No breathing room given to the listener then as "Desperate To Understand" one ups the pace instantly after "One Step Further" finishes and thrashes its way through the catchiest chorus I remember MxPx writing since the stuff on "Life In General." - ROCKFREAKS.NET
