MxPx’s second acoustic release (following 2004’s AC/EP) shows they are no stranger to acoustic renditions of their pop-punk hits. The Acoustic Collection doesn’t leave much to the imagination: a collection of MxPx tunes, old and new, broken down to acoustic guitars with minimal percussion. The Collection kicks off with an updated rendition of angst classics “Doing Time” and “Tomorrow is Another Day,” and it edges into their later discography with songs “Secret Weapon” and “Aces Up,” a particular highlight from their most recent release, Plans Within Plans. The show-stealer would be the album’s closer, the classic MxPx anthem “Punk Rawk Show.” It’s slowed down to a folky sing-along featuring identifiable gang vocals by Yuri and Tom. The combination of it all makes this a feel-good record for any MxPx fan.

Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
