17 Songs, 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Rancid’s eighth album is crammed with their fierce trademarks: brain-tattooing riffs and choruses, ready-to-derail vocals, and pointed lyrics detailing punk-ready themes of honor, trust, loneliness, personal accountability, personal destruction, and death. The album simply cooks and hooks with no sugarcoating. “Back Where I Belong” and “Collision Course” are call-to-arms anthems amped on snarly riffs; “Raise Your Fists” conveys a anti-authoritarian ’tude with gnarly gang shouts and pickslides; “Everybody’s Sufferin’” has punk-soul in its bouncy ska; both “In the Streets” and “Already Dead” could be Rancid’s two best songs ever.

A solid reintroduction

Finally, after several years of experimenting, Rancid has been able to take their experience, grit, and authenticity and roll it into something new that speaks from their humble beginnings but with and up-to-date twist on their sound. Tim (Timebomb) and his friends from Rancid are showing why they are punk rock staples and are here to stay. Thank you guys.

Rancid is outlasting them all

I won’t waste time comparing this to their other albums because people who say this is their best since (fill in the blank) are full of $#@! — all their albums have been great and ALL are now considered classics, in my book…just buy it and shut up! And buy all of Tim Timebomb’s stuff while you’re at it!
