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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A different direction, but sounds good. 20 Jun 2008
By Mike
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm writing this review as I listen to the album for the first time, so all you're getting is my first impressions of the songs and a brief summary.

1. Half Truism - A good, chart-friendly, typically Offspring style singalong. Fst punk verses with a half-tempo chorus. Better than average but nothing special.

2. Trust in You - Sounds like the title song from the Smash album. A fast averagely good punk song of the type the Offspring do very well. Think 'The Long Way Home'.

3. You're gonna go far kid - Kind of dancy with a slow dragging chorus. I'm not overly impressed with this song. Puts me in mind of Panic at the Disco.

4. Hammerhead - Starts quite fast and heavy. The lyrics appear to be from a soldiers point of view. Changes 2/3rds through to a half-tempo chord-heavy punk rock number, kind of like the first track from 'Americana' (can't remember the name right now). The lyrics seem to now be about a school shooting, which is odd.
EDIT: Just listened to this song again and I like it very much.

5. A Lot Like Me - This is a totally new style for an Offspring song but I like it alot. This is how every Coldplay song should sound. Very emotional chorus. The song builds very well.

6. Takes Me Nowhere - Energetic up-tempo song. Sounds very much like 'Kick Him When He's Down' from 'Ignition'. In fact, it wouldn't sound out of place on that album.

7. Kristy, Are You Doing Ok? - I really like this song. It starts like a slow Feeder song, which isn't the best compliment, but soon becomes very listenable. Again, a totally different direction for the band. Quite poignant lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars *boiiiiiing* 10 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am listening to this album as we speak, I am a HUGE Offpsring fan and have been for most of my enjoyable life!

We have some new styley tracks on here aswell as some tracks you can really feel the roots of, I actually cant stop listening to it, its hard to choose a favourite so i wont :)

Its definatly not Ignition or Ixnay but its Offspring and they still have something good going on. I hope i die before they stop making music.

Buy this album x

5.0 out of 5 stars offspring changed ? who cares !!! 14 Jun 2008
By DEANO
Format:Audio CD
this is a differn't sound for offspring a bit more mainstream and a bit more melodic. but don't let that put you off the great album. i was a fan in the early days but the went off them for a bit but after hearing this latest release i'm back on board. every tune is so catchy and there are no filler tracks on here. 10/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much different, but its a good thing okay? 9 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
After the awful Splinter and the premature Greatest Hits I was a little worried about what to expect and after the album art was revealed I was even more worried but after just two listens I can say that Dexter and co have produced a cracking album. Yeah its not the hard punk of the past and this is a far cry from ixnay and smash but what it is is a good, solid album with some brilliant tracks that remind you of old offspring and some newer, more mainstream tracks. Offspring have stuck by their roots for a long while and I think this album is a perfection evolution for a band who deserve your respect on the basis of what they have already achieved. If you're a fan then get this, give it some time and accept that, unlike splinter this is the next step in the evolution of one of the best punk bands of the 90's. Yes the Offspring have changed, but its damn good music and thats all that should matter. add it to your sounds of the summer

5.0 out of 5 stars The Formula. It Just works. 17 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is offspring. No doubt. Nor do you even get a feel that that they have been going since the early 90's. I still prefer Ignion and tunes such as dirty magic & The Kids arnt alright etc are a couple of the best songs they ever did but who cares right.

This definatley feels like a band running on top form and to be fair I was not expecting much. I felt their formula was getting stale and boring and skipped the last album so I was actually a bit shocked when I saw this for sale... ...here we go again. But I took the chance and glad I did.

As soon as the opening track goes on the smile goes up and u'll be turning the volume to max and maybe even secretley jumping around your room.

Definatley a feel good album even if you have not heard any offspring before this album will appeal.

Nottingtown feels like it's going to roll into one of their other tunes from Conspiracy of One but never quite does.

There are a few slower songs on the album to break up the pace such as Fix You.

If you like the offspring then this is nothing revolutional. If this is your first album then this is a brilliant intro.

But i've listend to this album and not found myself going for the next track button. I think that says enough.

If you have not got any of their back catalogue i'd recomend Americana for similair fun & Ignition before they used a winning formula.

Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace has a sound reminiscent of Smash and Ixnay, arguably two of the best Offspring records, and this can only mean good things.

Dexter Holland's vocals are clean and crisp throughout and there are plenty of awesome songs. Sure, there isn't anything here that we haven't heard before, but if it's not broken, don't fix it, right?

My only gripe with this album is that it took four and a half years to be completed. But at least the production wasn't rushed.

This is a solid album. Personal recommendations include Half-Truism, You're Gonna Go Far, Kid and Stuff is Messed Up.

If you are an Offspring fan, don't hesitate buying this album!

If you've liked any of the other recent Offspring albums then you'll like this.
