Strong Fourth Album.
on 7 August 2014
After the success of previous album, 1994's Smash, The Offspring had to come back strong with the next album and on Ixnay on the Hombre in 1997 they did just that by keeping with a similar formula but at the same time taking a slightly darker route. The majority of songs here are fast paced punk rock numbers and there isn't a Self Esteem or even a Come Out and Play but the likes of Mota, Me & My Old Lady, Gone Away and All I Want prove The Offspring know a tune when they write one and also aren't afraid to chuck in a bit of melody here and there.
Their latest material may get a lukewarm response but the bands 90's material is what has kept their legacy alive today.
