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!
