Ok.. This album was the first Rancid album i ever bought and that was partly a good thing and partly a bad thing. The good thing was that it was incredible and turned me into a massive Rancid fan for life. The bad thing was that since then i have been on the search for a rancid album of the same quality and i havent found it. Life won't wait literally has everything. Some people have dissed it for being too experimental with reggae,blues and punk but i think that this makes it all the better! When i first got it i thought there were about 4 great songs out of the 22, but about a year later there were 12 great songs, a year later 16 etc. That is the sign of a legendary album and this rancid offering is definetly that. The songs are all individual and brilliant and it makes you wonder how the band could make up all the different riffs and bass lines for each song when your average band have trouble makin one cool tune. I couldn't say i really have a favourite in this album but a mention should go out to '1998' and 'Black lung' (all the songs are brilliant and there different styles suit different moods. Although there's lots of blues and reggae there is also the trademark Rancid style screams and growls ('leicester square for example). Basically GET THIS ALBUM and you will love the range of amazing and original music you have. If this album was £50 you'd be getting your moneys worth!
