Biography

"We want to offer something new with every album," says Dexter Holland, frontman of THE OFFSPRING.

After nine records, that's certainly not an easy task for any band. However, THE OFFSPRING have more than a few surprises up their sleeves, and their ninth studio album, DAYS GO BY, is staggering proof. Produced by Bob Rock (Metallica, Mötley Crüe, The Cult), the ...

Product Description

Plays fine, sounds sublime. Fom a well cared for personal collection. Buy with confidence--see my feedback. Thanks and enjoy this great CD!

Amazon.com

Fellow Californian Mike Love of the Beach Boys is sampled to introduce this latest Offspring release and immediately it's down to business as usual. Which for the Offspring means the best-produced punk rock money can buy. Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam) turns the knobs in the producer's chair and he works pure sonic architecture. The guitars crunch with perfectly defined distortion, the drums come down the middle, and--most importantly--singer Dexter Holland is juiced to the max. Though his voice sits in the "whine" range, double tracking and other studio enhancements give the vocals an incredible presence beyond standard range, and Holland works them to convincing effect. "Come Out Swinging" does exactly that. "Want You Bad" recalls the southern California punk pop of the Descendents. "One Fine Day" double-times into both hardcore and a galloping country terrain. Essentially, it's full speed ahead with the pedal to the metal and no airbags in sight. --Rob O'Connor

Wow. That's all I can say. This album is a piece of work that REALLY deserves to be an Offspring album. There is only one departure on this album, which is the spanish-sounding "Original Prankster", which is a very fun and super catchy song. Other than that, the album is straight-forward punk rock that made the Offspring famous. If I could relate this album to any other by the Offspring, I'd say it sounds like Ixnay On The Hombre. The musical style is alot alike, and the lyrics are very strong. The best cuts on Conspiracy of One are "Come Out Swinging", "Want You Bad", "Dammit I Changed Again", "Living In Chaos", "Denial Revisited", and "Conspiracy Of One." "Want You Bad" is a more poppier song with a great sound, and "Vultures" and "Denial Revisited" are both slower songs. I don't care for "Vultures" much but "Denial" is a piece of work. Reminds me a little of "Gone Away". The secret track, called "Huck It", is a funny song filled with expletives. The lyrics are another strong point on this album. "Conspiracy Of One" is a great example of this, about a "mass bomber kind of guy." "Come Out Swinging" is also good, about racial and religious subjects. All in all, this album is EXCELLENT, one of the best albums of 2000. Go buy it. I assure you that you will not regret it.

Wow is all that needs to be said. The Offspring are back with their latest album, released yesterday November 14th, on Columbia Records. Some critics consider the Offspring as "just another punk rock band", playing fast music with no rhythm. Titled Conspiracy Of One, this album brought back many of the groups rhythms from earlier years. Listening to Conspiracy Of One brought back memories of older Offspring such as the songs "Kick Him When He's Down" from Ignition and "I Choose" from Ixnay On The Hombre. Both of these songs have a catchy rhythm weaved into the band's punk flow, which they have done once again in many songs on the new album. The first song released off the album was "Original Prankster". It is a little different from the band's punk style by forming a swing-type beat instead. The congas and cowbells give the song a southern flavor. Lead singer Dexter Holland and the rest of The Offspring had originally decided to put the new album up on their website in mp3 form so everyone could download the songs before the CD came out. This plan was changed, and the band eventually just kept "Original Prankster" on the site and encouraged everyone to download it. In showing their gratitude for their fans, The Offspring decided to give away one million dollars of their own money to one lucky fan who had downloaded the single. After picking 4 finalists last week, the band was a guest on MTV's Total Request Live yesterday to give away the money. Keep an eye out for the music video, which has already debuted on MTV. Many albums have one or two featured songs with fillers in between. Conspiracy Of One is not one of these albums. When listening to the album, it's almost surprising that each song is as good or better than the one before it, making this arguably the best Offspring album yet.Read more ›

First of all I want to say that I bought this CD less than a week ago and I've listend to it every day since at least twice a day - and still I haven't had enough. When you compare this CD to Americana I'm pretty sure that Conspiracy Of One is better although I was expecting another track like Pay The Man (which is my favourite song from Americana). Conspiracy Of One is much more serious and sufisticated. the songs (1-10):
Intro - not a song
Come Out Swinging - 10 (great lyrics and music)
Original Prankster - 7 (not enough diversity with the music)
Want You Bad - 7.5 (qute)
Million Miles Away - 9 (Good song)
Dammit, I Changed Again - 9.5 (A good offspring-style song)
Living In Chaos - 10 (Great music)
Special Delivery - 9 (takes time to understand)
One Fine Day - 7 (I especially like the part before the last chorus)
All Along - (not sure yet but it's pretty good)
Daniel, Revisited - 9.5 (takes time to understand)
Vultures - 9 (sounds like Nirvana only better)
Conspiracy Of One - 10 (I was a little disappointed at first but it's a great song with deep meanings which I haven't fully understood yet)
Huck It(Bonus Track) - 9
Concpiracy Of One brings offspring back on track after Americana. I don't know if it's the best Offspring album but it's good and different and that's what important. Most of the lyrics r as usual great and meaningful.

Thanks to Napster, I've had the cd for about 2 weeks now, and I can tell you, its awesome!! Hardcore Offspring fans like me will not be disappointed. There's lots of typical Offspring in-your-face punk, with some departures like on their other albums. There's real guitar riffs on this record, which is something you don't see very often today. There are also a couple of songs that I have a feeling if they released as singles, they would top the charts, like "Want You Bad" and "Denial Revisited". To name the best tracks, they would be "Come Out Swinging", "Want You Bad", "All Along" "Dammit I Changed Again", "Denial Revisited", and "Living In Chaos", just to name a few. The whole album is really really awesome!! Offspring fans, BUY THIS RECORD THE DAY IT COMES OUT!! I know I will.
