BTW, Rancid acoustic sends chills down my spine... :-)
Take one part late eighties melodic hardcore, and add a healthy dash of the Clash. Throw in some thug life style vocal tics, some killer bass lines, and psudo-political lyrics with a few odes to San Fransisco, and bam! You have your very own Rancid album. Like this band I was listening too, I forget their name. The name of their record was "Let the Dominoes Fall". Crap, let me go see the name of the band. They weren't very good. Let's see, here it is. It's...
Seriously, after waiting six whole years, this is the best they could come up with? This sounds like a band trying to approximate the Rancid sound but not doing a very good job. All the ingrediants are there, for sure. But somewhere in the bland, colorless production work and not exactly inspired songwriting, the band just didn't manage to come up with many memorable songs here.
The playing is what you expect. Matt Freeman is still a helluva bassist, and new drummer Brandon Somethingoranother, he used to play in the Used I believe, acquaints himself well enough. Lars and Tim still play the songs with some vigor, but no one here seems to be giving it their all.
Vocally Tim continues to grow increasingly incoherent, but thankfully leaves the semi-rapped style that marred some of the more recent Rancid products mostly behind. Matt, well, he still sounds like Matt, though he comes across much better on the recent Devil's Brigade record. Lars, well, he gets weaker with age, his intro to the song "Disconnected" unintentionally funny.Read more ›
Also Amazon lists "Outgunned" as a track on the album, it's only on the bonus acoustic disk, there are 19 tracks on the album
"Let the Dominoes Fall" continues the story begun in "Indestructible" but without some of the rawness brought in by Tim's divorce and the band's struggle to stay legit and relevant. Here, the band sounds like they're having a laid-back good time playing the kind of music which by now they can play in their sleep. The single "Last One To Die" is a perfect example of the kind of warm, mid-tempo punkish vibe that permeates the whole album. That track is a tribute to the band's longevity, and the whole album feels like it too; a kind of celebration at being able to do what you love so successfully after so many years. There's some sadness in the lyircs, and some muted discontent with the state of the world, but Rancid itself seems to be feeling pretty happy with its existence. Rancid, it seems, just doesn't have that much to be angry about these days. The album has the feel of a bunch of middle age guys getting together with some friends and a few bottles of wine and playing the music they love.Read more ›

I have several Rancid albums. Most of them I think are poor. However, I think "...And Out Come The Wolves" is arguably the best punk album ever. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Wilfrid W. Csaplar, Jr.
