5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Go! A Blast From the Past
This is the Album that introduced me to the new East Bay Punk Rock Scene.
The Album will blast you away with raw energy and pure tallent. Half the band hail from the almighty Ska Band- Operation Ivy, joined with Lars Frederickson of the UK Subs (briefly) and Brett Reed.
This is Ska/Punk at it's best. More shine and production than the first album, and the superb...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
Another Rancid album and this one is pretty good but not great. This album seems to be lacking the magic that makes the other Rancid stuff so good. It still has Matts amazing bass playing (its worth buying the cd just to hear that) but the lyrics and the songs seem to have no meaning and dont go very far. Out of the rancid i got (out come the wolves, rancid, lets go and...

This is the Album that introduced me to the new East Bay Punk Rock Scene.
The Album will blast you away with raw energy and pure tallent. Half the band hail from the almighty Ska Band- Operation Ivy, joined with Lars Frederickson of the UK Subs (briefly) and Brett Reed.
This is Ska/Punk at it's best. More shine and production than the first album, and the superb Radio, Radio EP but less than the heavily produced next album "and out come the wolves". Not to detract from that album as it is a masterpiece, but more of the raw Rancid gets through to you, the same feeling you get in the sweaty heart of the gig pumps through your speakers with the short and energetic songs on this album.
I would thoroughly recommend this album for your growing collection or as a start into a world of energetic and powerful sound.
Also check out- Skankin' Pickle, Operation Ivy, Swingin' Utters for some class music

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper Bo, 12 Jan 2003

All the people who have dissed this album don't know what they are talking about. On first hearing, its not a masterpiece, but give it time and it will become the finest street-punk album you own. All the anti-let's go people must be "And Out Come The Wolves"ers, which, although a quality album, is not what they're all about. This is a fast-played, fast-sung, energised album with heartfelt lyrics about life in the gutter. That is what punk is all about. Thankyou and goodnight

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Punk Experience, 4 Sep 2001
By 
Russell Dunn (England) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Let's Go [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Rancid display an amazing array of talents in this lengthy LP. The Bass lines of Freeman are typical of Punk Godfathers such as The Clash, yet Rancid take them further. Added to the excellent bass is the powerful, and often emotive lyrics supported by an always excellent guitar line. The fast, furious and lively lead guitar duels between Armstrong and Frederiksen make this record a delight to listen to. With Nihilism, Rancid grab your attention and never let up, straight through all 23 tracks, the music is relentless in it's desire to break out. The pace never lets down, and the songs never dissapoint. A truly excellent punk album, one that will be hard to rival.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Nonsense Punk, 3 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Let's Go [VINYL] (Vinyl)
This is a quality punk album. Unlike Out Come the Wolves (which is even better) there's no ska, reggae etc on it, it's just straight forward punk rock which is great to listen to. The best tracks are Nihilism, The Ballad of Jimmy and Johnny, Salvation, Harry Bridges and Radio, which is co-written by Billie Joy from Green Day. If you like punk, they don't come much more punk than this. Purchase it!!

Best songs Burn, Let's go and nihilism. If you like the distorted guitars and the distorted singing of Rancid this is a prime example. I prefer out come the wolves, but I would recommend this to anyone who wants to be introduced to one of the greatest band of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots, Rock, Rebel..., 2 Mar 2006
This review is from: Let's Go (Audio CD)
Since forming out of the ashes of Operation Ivy in 1991, Rancid has risen from a local ska punk group on the Gillman Street scene to one of the most recognizable groups alongside fellow groups like Green Day and The Offspring.
Let's Go is the second record to be released and marks the first recording as a four piece with ex UK-Sub Lars Frederickson. It suprising to hear the differences between Let's Go and the follow-up And Out Come The Wolves... as this sounds much more rawer and energetic.
Each track either lasts under or just over the two minute mark, with only a few nearly reaching the three minute point. At 23 tracks in total, this is more of an album that sounds breathtaking when its listened from start to finish. There are however songs like Radio, Salvation and St. Mary that distinctly stand out as classic Rancid tunes.
Despite the addition of Lars, the vocal duties are mainly done by Tim and Matt on here, and the music rarely stops to slow down for a breather. Some of Matt's best basslines can be found on this record particularly on International Cover-Up and on songs like 7 Years Down and Dope Sick Girl, Tim's lyrical content is stronger than ever.
I have nothing else to say in this review other than if you like Rancid then Let's Go is an essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album by Rancid by far!, 7 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let's Go (Audio CD)
Back before Rancid started pumping out cheesy punk by the numbers radio-friendly Ramones ripoffs, they were a punk band to be feared. 'Let's Go!' is the album that shows Rancid at their finest. This album shows the band at their fiercest, without a doubt. Tim and Lars' vocals are tight, the guitars and bass lines are amazing, and the drumming is spot on. 'And Out Come The Wolves..' is good, but this is better. Far, far better.

Out of the rancid i got (out come the wolves, rancid, lets go and rancid 2000) it is probably my least fav. Many will probably disagree but hay thats life.
