Album Review

After nearly three decades of making sunny California skatepunk, the Offspring get autumnal with their reflective ninth album, Days Go By. Though the band still maintains the same driving, hooky sound that it's always had, the album feels less aggressive and more wistful and yearning. "Days Go By" seems like punk rock tailor-made for fall weather with its meditations on the impermanence of youthful anger, as if the Offspring are offering some sage advice for those coming up after them. A similar vibe courses through "All I Have Left Is You," which switches back and forth between smoothed-out verses and big, guitar-heavy choruses, seeming like a much more adult version of the band than fans might have ever heard previously. While other parts of the album don't quite have the same adult contemporary punk feeling, the songs are generally more melodic and grown-up. All in all, Days Go By is more for fans who have been with the band for a while than those just tuning in, and while die-hard Offspring followers will be able to see the shift in the band's sound as part of a logical progression, new listeners would be better served by checking out some of their earlier, more urgent work.

Customer Reviews

Longtime fan thoroughly impressed

A very diverse outing from the offspring this time around. Everything they do, they do it well. To me this album seems to be very different from Rise and Fall, where that album felt rushed, this one feels like they really have alot of thought to every song and took there time till it was right. Overall a return to form in every sense, amazing album.


Don't get me wrong, I love the album; however, I don't like that it's the offspring. If this was some other band, I would love it, but what I love about the offpring is albums like Smash and Americana, with the yelled choruses and heavy punk guitar riffs, and this is nothing like that. This is much mellower than their older stuff. There's about an ounce of punk rock on this album with Slim Pickens, but that's it. Still a great band, just not punk rock anymore.

Not old Offspring, but still an awesome album!

Don't get me wrong, there will be no music better than The Offspring during their Smash era, however I cannot say that I am disappointed with how this band has evolved as a band. Every album of theirs is a work of art. These guys have been my favorite band for almost 20 years now, and I don't see myself steering from that statement for a long, long time. Excellent work guys, keep it up!!!


Formed: 1985 in Garden Grove, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The Offspring's metal-inflected punk became a popular sensation in 1994, selling over four million albums on an independent record label. While the group's credentials and approach follow the indie rock tradition of the '80s, sonically the Offspring sound more like an edgy, hard-driving heavy metal band, with their precise, pulsing power chords and Dexter Holland's flat vocals. Featuring Holland, guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman, bassist Greg Kriesel, and drummer Ron Welty, the Offspring released...
