By far the best Blink Album
on 1 August 2003
Better recording than cheshire cat, yet still very raw and edgy compared to Enema of the State and Take of your pants...
Dude Ranch is by far the best album in blinks collection.
1.Pathetic. A Great opening song, fast beat, which is a pattern with all of the dude ranch songs, Good Comparison of voices with tom over-taking mark with his high pitch and very distinctive voice, 8/10
2.Voyeur. Tom sings lead to this very catchy song. Good Guitar, interesting lyrics! Good chorus when mark comes in with, "And I wish..." and also good with the "Nah Nah Naaaaah" 7/10
3.Dammit. Great song, great video, one of my favourites. Good vocals and lyris from mark with a catchy guitar riff from Tom. Great chorus, a general song about growing up, falling in and out of love, rejection etc. A great teen anthem! 9/10
4.Boring. Good opening guitar riff, catched up by the drums and bass. Again, Tom's voice is very didtinctive and gives Blink that great sence of rawness. Short song, still good. Watch out for the horse kissing at the end! 7/10
5. Dick Lips. A interesting song! Tom's voice, guitar and drums very put together! Good chorus and a generally good song. 8/10
6.Waggy. Guitar riff, marks voice and very catchy are the highlights of this song. A interesting harmonizing in the chorus. Good line "I'll just jack off in my room until then..." 9/10
7.Enthused. A hell of a song, one of the best. Good opening, Tom's catchy voice and fast drums bring the song together. Atually, this song isn't just good, its f**king amazing! Great beat with amazing lyrics and the best line, "Another boring story..." when everything goes quiet! 10/10
8.Untitled. Good follow up to Enthused. Tom sounds out of tune! Quiet to begin with but amazing when gets started! Vocals speed up, guitar kicks in, drums get fast. 9/10
9.Apple Shampoo. AMAZING!!! The life of a teenager all over again. 10/10
10.Emo. Odd yet extremely catchy! Towards the end, drums and guitar stop to reveal a quiet bass, folled by an explosion of mark and tom's shouting over each other! 8/10
11.Josie. JOSIE JOSIE JOSIE!!!What can i say, it is my all time favourite Blink 182 song! Great Verses from Mark, followed by amazing chorus vocals from Tom. A very realistic song, great video and just overall amazingness! 10/10
12.A New Hope. A song about Princess Leia! 7/10
13. Degenerate. Hilarious! 10/10
14.Lemmings. Another teen Anthem. Catchy chorus with good lyrics and vocals off Mark. 8/10
15.I'm sorry. I don't like the begining, but the rest of the song and the album in general makes up for that! Tom sings lead, a good ending for the album. 8/10
FOR ANYBODY WHO LOVES THE ORIGINAL BLINK 182 !!!
