When I first listened to this I couldn’t believe how absolutely great this album was. An Offspring record in 2021, which sounds like such a good evolution of them. It’s part serious but part fun, it has drag and beat, it’s all around good punk rock, I just cannot help stamping my feet when listening to it. Although I’m still wrapping up my year-end conclusions but this one is pretty close to being my favorite rock album this year.
One loveable and so honest punk rock album that I got really fond of last year. Music that makes me miss live concerts badly.
Punk rock, nothing extra, but it’s a good one.
Probably my most replayed single track recently. I love the energy of the raw industrial punk. Funny that Kittie comes to mind when listening to this, who also had a track called Spit, although their song that comes to mind is Brackish.
Good punk rock with a proper average track length below three minutes. And just like any politically charged punk rock in 2020 it’s an all around anti-Trump statement. Coming from Anti-Flag who self-admittedly “have actively chosen to not attack presidents directly”. It’s another record in the long list of such albums spanning now across so many different genres.
Current dose of punk rock. The album cover and the title track music video are just unfathomable bad, no excuse for that. But the music still rocks.
Note: I liked their 2015 album, too, a lot actually, I wonder why that didn’t end up here. Funny thing is it was among my ten most listened-to records that year, but didn’t make the final cut of the Top 10 at the time.
They say alternative, NME says punk, and this is my idea of good indie rock. And a blast first record.
I am re-listening this one from 2002. Just as the first track hits me, I can hardly imagine how huge of a smasher this could have been back at the time of release. I was a late arrival to the Transplants but I wish being in that crowd on their album launch tour who are listening to this shit as new and live. They must have gone crazy.
It’s one of those instant classic records, which have the real potential to become timeless. Could have happened any time in the past decade and will probably sound the same a decade from now. Huge ska punk-rock summer hit parade all over.
