When i first heard this album, i really didn't like it because i was so used to the sounds of Conspiracy of One and Americana so i didn't listen to it for a while. But like so many amazing albums, you often cant stand it before you realize its true potential to be brilliant. Hugely powerful songs such as dirty magic (my favourite offspring song) are complemented by songs with catchy riffs and lyrics such as 'Kick him when he's down' and 'Burn it up'.
This album is definitely more heavy going than their more recent releases and really makes Splinter sound a bit of a joke to be honest (not a fan). If you're an offspring fan and love the rawer sounds of smash and ixnay, get this album and if you're a fan or Americana, C of 1 or Splinter listen to this album and see what you think. If you dont know The Offspring, this should be the first album in your collection. If you want a great rock album, GET IGNITION NOW!
