Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Terrific sales of their independent Cheshire Cat got Blink-182 signed to a major label (MCA) for 1997's Dude Ranch, which led to radio hits ("Dammit," "Josie") and platinum sales. No "sell-out" on the band's part, though, as Dude Ranch simply features another infectious collection of snotty vocals, punchy rhythms, vivid lyrics, and aggressive chords. San Diego producer Mark Trombino shines some of the scuffed edges, but this is still good ol' Blink at its sunny, effervescent best. Nice "emocore" spoof here ("Emo"), plus an odd knack for crafting bass-lines that recall--seriously!--New Order, and vocal harmonies that owe debts to the Beach Boys. --Mark Woodlief

5.0 out of 5 stars Still sets the bar after all these years August 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's been almost ten years now since Blink 182 released Dude Ranch (oh God, I'm getting old!) , and yet it still sets the bar for what a pop-punk album should sound like. While "Enema of the State" may have sold more albums and truly made Blink 182 a household name, many people were introduced to Blink 182 via the radio single "Dammit (Growing Up)". While many simply placed the cd back on their shelves after they played that song out, many others discovered that they were quickly falling in love with Mark, Tom and Scott and the rest of the "punk" rock movement of the late 90's. While I'm sure Tom Delonge's voice was an awful shock to many who purchased Dude Ranch after hearing "Dammit", older fans as well as new recruits were addicted. Dude Ranch starts off with the best formula Blink had to offer; Mark and Tom trading off vocals over a fast punk rock beat. If "Pathetic" didn't/doesn't do it for you, you should probably put down the cd. However if you find it hard to wipe the smile off your face, you'll find out that the rest of the album is truly a punk rock classic. "D*ckips", "Apple Shampoo", "Emo", "A New Hope" and "Josie" (which had some small success as the follow up to Dammit)are my favorites, but their are really no bad songs on Dude Ranch (although I don't usually listen to "I'm Sorry" anymore). This is the last time Blink 182 would sound this way for an entire album. Scott Raynor would leave the band and be replaced by the more talented Travis Barker, but whose drumming is truthfully less "punk rock" than Scott's was. Tom's vocals would become overproduced, and Mark's catchy little bass solo's would become almost non-existent. I'm not sure how this album comes or will come across to those who discovered Blink later in the band's career, but I can speak for all of the older fans when I say that Dude Ranch is a true classic, that can never be replicated or replaced. *****

5.0 out of 5 stars Enter: Blink 182 January 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is Blink 182's second best album (to Chesire Cat), and it is when they first begin to get recognized. This cd still has the little crack in's which were featured in Chesire Cat, such as at the end of "Boring," "Untitled," and "I'm Sorry." The band's singles: Dammit, and Josie, are very good, but there are better songs on the cd. The language is borderline, but hey, thats what makes some of it funny! This cd is very good, if you have "Enema Of The State" and especially like "Dumpweed" and "Dysentary Gary" you will love this cd. This is pretty much a must in every music lovers collection, and if you are looking for not-quite-hardcore punk you will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Review December 9, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If I had to pick my favorite Blink CD, this one would be it. It includes songs that make you think about life and songs that make you want to laugh.I can listen to this CD five times over and not get bored. Pathetic is my favorite song on here, but some others are great, too.
Of course, not all the tracks are terrific. There are one or two thrown in there that don't sound to great (too much music and not enough vocals) and can kind of drag it down near the middle, but it picks up in no time. The 'skits' are hilarious.
I found this album much better than Enema of the State because it seems to show what the band's REALLY about. In EOTS it seems like they're aiming for either TRL (MTV), a younger audience, or both. Some songs on that CD are good, but just don't live up to Dude Ranch.
This was the first Blink CD I bought. If you've just heard about Blink 182 and want to buy your first Blink CD, I strongly suggest this one over Cheshire Cat and EOTS.

5.0 out of 5 stars why can't good music be called good music? August 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Why does it seem that all the "real punks" are the most snobby, uninclusive group of people on the face of the planet. According to them, there are only 5 good bands out there (most likely the 5 most obscure bands in rock music history) and anything that GOD FORBID is CATCHY is instantly written of as "sellout pop-punk". I don't recall ever hearing this band claim to be "hardcore punk", so why would you judge it as so. And I hate to burst your "I'm an individual" little bubbles, but there is a reason that this "pop-punk" is so popular. IT SOUNDS GOOD!! IT'S GOT UNDENIABLE HOOKS!! IT'S GOT LYRICS THAT AVERAGE PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO!! I listen to Operation Ivy and Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys too, and guess what? I like this better! This album is great from start to finish, with good songs about whatever the band wanted them to be about. I will say that Blink's later work hasn't ever lived up to this record, but at least they hit a home run once. Instead of being musical fascists, we should open our minds and not instantly rule out something because someone else likes it. That's the most un-punk attitude I can think of. Buy this CD if you are a fan of catchy hard rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dude Ranch is the best Blink-182 CD ever! December 2, 1999
By John
Format:Audio CD
Dude Ranch is a great album. Every song is really good once you listen to them all. This album is better than Enema of the State, because this one has a lot of meaning with growing up and relationships. My favorites are "Untitled," "Emo," "Pathetic," "Apple Shampoo," and "I'm Sorry." Though, I don't like "Voyeur" and "Degenerate" because they are supposed to be funny, but I think thses songs cut away from the band's credibility. Most people think Blink-182 is just some white punk band that makes funny videos, but pick this album up and you'll discover Blink-182 is a great band with a lot of meaning.
