5.0 out of 5 stars Why this is better than "Enema of the state", 28 Mar 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Dude Ranch (Audio CD)
Straight off the bat I would like to say that blink 18't'2 are without doubt my favourite band (punk or otherwise). However I would like to point out how much better this album is than their overpolished "Enema.." album. Again don't get me wrong I love Enema but with "Dude Ranch" they pulled out all the stops to give us some truly "classic" songs.
Openers "Pathetic" and "Voyeur" take I while to sink in but after repeated plays you can hear the fantastic melodies that just ooze out of both tunes. This of course leads us into the now classic "Dammit" which of course needs no introduction or explanation...! Of course the album doesn't end there during the course of the album they fire out (what should have been sure fire hits) "dick lips" "emo" "I`m sorry" and two of my all time favourite songs "Lemmings" and the fabulous "Enthused".
At this point in their (brief) career they play each note and sing each track like their hearts depended on it. A feeling which jumps off the record, grabs you by the throat and says "Listen to me I`m gonna kick your a**e". And that my friends is exactly what it does! Whilst not as instantly accessible as Enema once this gets to you it will have a damn sight more staying power than it`s more successful follow up.
Of course does any of this really matter? Not really but for all those who now believe they are the greatest blink fans, then you owe to yourselves to OWN THIS album. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
