5.0 out of 5 stars More punk greatness., 13 April 2003
This review is from: Life Won't Wait (Audio CD)
When the punk revolution first came about in the late 70's, there were a few key bands that really defined the genre (Clash, Pistols, Damned, Ramones, Dead Kennedys)
As you can see there were quite a few key players, from either side of the pond.
Well punks not dead, maybe not as fit as it used to be, bit it's still got a bit of Oi left in it yet. But one thing we're missing is a real key band to unite the scene. Enter Rancid...
Yet again they have given us an album of outstanding quality. Lyrically and musically diverse. Ok one of the great things about punk is the fact that any snotty little kid can get in the garage with two of his mates and belt out a few. But this is where Rancid differ. Like The Clash were to the Pistols, Rancid are to their stable mates. Dancing bass lines, catchy riffs, gruff vocals, they're all here. Musically superior to many in the punk family, they bring it all together to make it all sound so so easy.
Yes they do sound like The Clash, but when you consider that CLash were one of the greatest bands of all time (ok so maybe the greatest rock off all time) thats not a bad thing.
Buy this, then Out Come The Wolves..., then the rest.
