iTunes Review

Rancid’s eponymous 2000 album — alternately referred to by fans as Rancid 5 or Rancid 2000 — was both a rebirth and a return for the group. This is the group’s fastest, hardest collection of songs to date. They appear intent to reaffirm their pure punk pedigree following the musically diverse Life Won’t Wait. While it's their most aggressive musical statement, Rancid is also the band’s most lyrically ambitious effort. “Don Giovanni” is based on Mozart’s 1787 opera, while “Loki” is about the Norse God of the same name. No other Rancid album deals so heavily with history and politics. The tracks “Rwanda” and “Blackhawk Down” address war and political strife in Africa while “Radio Havana” offers an anthem for Cuban refugees. Other songs rage against government-sponsored conflicts and human corruption. It could have easily turned into a stale retread of old ideas, but under the production of Bad Religion (and Epitaph) honcho Brett Gurewitz, Rancid is the sharpest and most naturalistic-sounding of all the band’s albums. It’s a killer affirmation of purpose from one of modern punk’s most faithful outfits.

Great Fast Punk Rock Album

This is by far the fastest Rancid album. Fans of ...And Out Come the Wolves and Indestructible will like the songs Radio Havana and Rwanda. This album is most comparable to their original Self titled album. The song Axiom has an even better bass solo than Maxwell Murder, Matt Freedman is the man! He even sings in a few songs on this album. Overall this is a fast paced album for hardcore fans of Rancid and it is 38 minuets that you will not soon forget.


If you didn't like this album for $10.00 go buy a gun for $300 and shoot yourself in the ears until you can hear because this is music at it's best

One of the cornerstone bands of the '90s punk revival, Rancid's unabashedly classicist sound drew heavily from the Clash's early records, echoing their left-leaning politics and fascination with ska, while adding a bit of post-hardcore crunch. While some critics dismissed Rancid as derivative, others praised their political commitment, surging energy, and undeniable way with a hook. And, regardless of critical debate over their significance, the band's strengths made them perhaps the most popular...
