Reseña de álbum

An inspired side project, Transplants features Tim Armstrong of Rancid, Armstrong's buddy Rob Aston rapping, blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, and a host of pals dropping in. They don't really sound much like Rancid, though at times one does hear the Clash in these tunes. A bit more rock & roll than punk rock, Transplants spare listeners any ska tunes. However, there is plenty of hip-hop courtesy of Aston, who raps in a macho and at times grating style with no shortage of borrowed gangsta clichés. In fact, Transplants sound best when he's not shouting about gats and hos. Every time Armstrong's gutter punk-accented, mushmouth voice appears, Transplants sound more soulful than rap-rock. Armstrong hasn't written hook-filled songs like these since And Out Come the Wolves. "Down in Oakland," the one song he wrote without Aston, is among the album's catchiest. Check out Armstrong's slick and reverby surf guitar on this one. Aside from singing like a punk rock Marvin Gaye and playing snazzy guitar leads, Armstrong is also responsible for the blues piano loops that anchor "Diamonds and Guns" and "California Babylon," songs that sound a good deal better than their titles. Perhaps the album's best number is the downbeat "Weigh on My Mind," featuring the throaty, understated background vocals of Brody Armstrong of the Distillers, who sings the chorus "I've got so many problems and they weigh on my mind" with Armstrong. Among the other key contributors is Vic Ruggiero of the Slackers, who lays down some cool piano and organ grooves throughout. And there's a not half-bad rap tune called "D.R.E.A.M.," which bites an overused Method Man refrain from the Wu-Tang Clan song "C.R.E.A.M.," but sports a beat that's as G-funk as punk gets.

Decent Album, Would be GREAT without Aston

The Itunes review is pretty much spot on. Rob Aston's "rapping" comes off as dorky and sound like he's trying a bit too hard to be hard-core. The tracks "Tall Cans in the Air" and "D.R.E.A.M." are the best examples of this. However, the tracks featuring Tim Armstrong's gutteral Oakland street drawl are, not surprisingly, very tight. My favorite tracks on this album are "One Seventeen" and "Down in Oakland" (the one song written solely by Armstrong and should be included on the list of classic East Bay anthems). A decent collaboration as far as collaborations go, but would be much better with Armstrong as the lead singer. East Bay Punk is King!

Leave it to Tim Armstrong to mastermind this band.

Transplants is such an appropriate name for this band. With Rob, Travis and of course Tim coming together to create a totally uniques sound. This is one of those bands that I just can't classify. They fit into so many genres and could be liked by people with all sorts of different musical tastes. From start to finish, I love this album. Of course we've all heard Diamonds and Guns on those Garnier commercials, but have you heard it with the lyrics? It's kind of mind blowing. My other favorites include Romper Stomper, Tall Cans in the Air, D.J. D.J., Weigh on my Mind and Down in Oakland. If you like Rancid or Blink you'll love this. Not to mention the other all-stars Tim Armstrong has assembled. Including, Rancid buddy Lars Frederiksen, then wife Brody Dalle and Davey Havoc from AFI. Seriously, if you like punk music in any way shape or form, buy this now. At any price, it's a steal.


Most of these songs just blow my mind. Examples would be Tall cans in the air, sad but true, and down in oakland. The scream-type rapping rob aston provided gets you just as pumped up as tim armstrongs vocals soothe you. with travis barker keeping the tempo fast with original drumbeats, its hard to beat most of these songs.

Punk rock veterans Tim Armstrong, Travis Barker, and Rob Aston formed Transplants in 2002. This supergroup was a friendly experiment, for Armstrong made a name for himself with Rancid and Barker was enjoying success with blink-182. Aston was a friend of theirs who moved to Los Angeles, but eventually music was at the center of their bond. Armstrong and Aston jammed for fun for the next two years, but recording made things more real. Transplants had something — something good. Barker was ecstatic...
