Even though a lot of the same elements on their first album can be found on Juvenile Product of the Working Class, the Swingin' Utters still manage to put out some of the catchiest working class anthems for the '90s. The take-no-crap attitude, gruff songwriting, and British accents are still present, but somehow these guys manage to outdo The Streets of San Francisco - they've progressed as a band and even have acoustic guitars and accordions incorporated into their tunes. It's easy to say that this is what Stiff Little Fingers should have sounded like after Nobody's.
