Product description

The Offspring ~ Ignition

Amazon.co.uk

It seems like the terms catchy and punk shouldn't go together, but for the Offspring, they do. Listening to Ignition, one gets the sense of rage tightly controlled, powering the band's up-tempo, driving material. While their sensibility is firmly punk, the Offspring have clearly borrowed from heavy metal for their chord progressions and guitar sound--check out the solos on "Nothing from Something" and "Forever and a Day". While this album didn't have the major-label success of its follow-up, Smash, all the ingredients that made that record a hit are here, if not quite as refined: angry, incisive lyrics; fast-driving rhythms; and--dare one say it--melodic chord progressions. It's easy to hear why Ignition was an underground hit and why the Offspring's later records, while somewhat diluted, have been so successful. --Genevieve Williams

When i first heard this album, i really didn't like it because i was so used to the sounds of Conspiracy of One and Americana so i didn't listen to it for a while. But like so many amazing albums, you often cant stand it before you realize its true potential to be brilliant. Hugely powerful songs such as dirty magic (my favourite offspring song) are complemented by songs with catchy riffs and lyrics such as 'Kick him when he's down' and 'Burn it up'.
This album is definitely more heavy going than their more recent releases and really makes Splinter sound a bit of a joke to be honest (not a fan). If you're an offspring fan and love the rawer sounds of smash and ixnay, get this album and if you're a fan or Americana, C of 1 or Splinter listen to this album and see what you think. If you dont know The Offspring, this should be the first album in your collection. If you want a great rock album, GET IGNITION NOW!

ok yes this didnt sell as many copies as smash or probably any of the other albums they released after that but it should have done. it is a fantastic album from start to finish. the songs are fast and punchy and probably among the heaviest that the spring have ever written. you can see very clearly that this album is the logical progresion from their self titled debut with all the rawness of any punk band to the slightly more polished uber record that was smash. ignition is no better or no worse than either of those records and it is shame that this album seems almost to have been left behind as it is a phenominal if basic collection of ludicrously catchy songs. all about three minutes long and with wall to wall waa-ooo`s. simple, direct, basic all of these are true and that is what makes this band so good and they didnt do it much better anywhere else than this album.

This is one of the offsprings finest. A lot of people i know say they hate this album but thats because they havent given it time. After a couple of listens this becomes one AWESOME ALBUM! Every track works. Theres the catchy slice of Punk rock that is "LAPD" and the screaming "KICK HIM WHEN HE'S DOWN". And if thats not enough its got their finest ever song "Dirty Magic" which is one of the best songs ever! Dont listen to the slates and trust me, BUY THIS NOW!

I'm more into the heavier punk sounds of Rancid and NOFX and I'm even partial to a bit of Slipknot, so when I thought about buying one of The Offsprings albums, I looked for a more punk rather than pop fueled album and I found the perfect match with Ignition. Every song on here is amazing. Its one of those albums that you can put on and just leave to play with no skips because every song is so fantastic. The only problem is that they do all sound kinda the same apart from Dirty Magic which is a great song and helps add a break from fast energetic skate punk. Also what I love is that most songs are pretty rubbish at the start but by the time the lyrics come in, the song is great!
Dexters voice also goes really well with the music and he probably has one of the best voices punk music has seen.
Overall, if you are looking for an early Offspring album with mainly fast, energetic, melodic and catchy songs, Igintion is the album you've been searching for. I love every song on this album and can listen to it from start to finish but my personal favourite songs are "Session"
"We Are One"
"Get It Right"
"Dirty Magic" (the only slow song on Ignition but one of the catchiest)
"Burn It Up"
"Forever and a Day"
The only thing that dissapointed me was that the artwork wasn't as interesting as the later albums like Ixnay on the Hombre and Conspirasy of One

This was the fourth Offspring album that i bought and i thought the other ones such as 'Smash' were unbeatable, but i was definately wrong. This album is amazing. It is probably the heaviest album they have done and it is punk rock as it should be, without the clean cut approach of some of their later work such as 'conspiracy of one'. Tracks such as 'L.A.P.D' and 'burn it up' stand out although every single one is a blinder. I recommend this along with the other epitaph releases 'Smash' and 'Ixnay on the hombre'. It is a shame that such a great band had to sell out and modify their music but they deserve the money they now earn with such a great back catalogue. Buy 'Ignition' now, it will stay at the forefront of your music collection for years.

i know that a lot of people find this album disappointing, and this is mainly because they are used to the sounds of more recent titles such as conspiracy of one. i admit that the very first time i listened to this cd i thought it was more of a noise than music, but now it is a firm favourite. the more you listen to this album, the more you will like it trust me. songs to look out for are LAPD and kick him while he's down. if you are more familiar with some of the more 'pop like???'(dont mean that it was the only word i could think of) songs from albms like conspiracy of one and americana, you should get this album to see what other music the offspring are capable of producing. not dissing those two albums they are still fantastic but this one is my favourite. fantastic.
