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.
