The band is more based towards the ska style than Common Rider, but the two bands seem to share a lot of similarities. Both bands successfully integrate a number of different musical genres to create an entirely new style. Nevertheless, the Spitvalves are one of the very few bands that actually have not made the move over to making purely emo music, as so many of their stylistic family have in the last few year. Some individuals may say that this disc is one that came too late for the movement, but that is simply not true, as the disc should be seen as an evolutionary step instead of just being a CD released too late in the game. The Spitvalves are really a band that has weathered the critical storm against ska music, being created 8 years ago, and the criticism really helped in making this band that much more tight.
