Smash or Ignition? :confused: I can't decide :o . Smash is great all the way through but Ignition is loaded with some truely ace songs and afew that are not quite so good. Which do you prefer and why?

Although Ixnay is my favourite album, Ignition is a close second so i'd definetly choose that one over Smash- I mean i love smash, i just feel like I can relate to Some of the songs on Ignition sliightly more...But that's a hard choice- Genocide is on Smash and that's one of My All Time favourite songs...Difficult one.

I'd have to say smash is my 2nd favourite album, behind then Americana. Ignition is fourth, behind Ixnay on the Hombre. Ignition is a very good album, but it just doesn't compare to the other three. Also, evey other alubm tyes in at foruth with it.

Not a single album in the world can beat Ignition. But Smash is my 2nd favorite Offspring album, it my first too.

Ignition if my favorite. I love the style of it, just all of the songs fit perfectly. Smash is amazing, but Ignition is a work of art.

Smash. Ignition is a good, solid album, but there's not a whole lot on it that's really anything special except for maybe Kick Him When He's Down and No Hero. Most of it is very straight forward punk rock, which while a good listen, isn't really anything that great.

Smash on the other hand has a lot of really good stand out songs, and has a more diverse sound, while Ignition's songs kind of blur together for the most part. Plus the songs are just better in general. The songwriting is vastly improved.

Ignition is my second favorite, almost tied for first with Ixnay.

Smash hits the average mark (as far as offspring albums. it's not an average album by general standards). Of their 7 albums, Smash is #4- there are 3 better and 3 worse.

There is not ONE BAD SONG on ignition. Every song gets me going, and every song has terrific lyrics. There are no "joke songs", no quirky pop songs or songs with bad lyrics... Smash has "so alone" and "what happened to you?" and "killboy powerhead", none of which I like. Ignition was by far their most solid album (but I like ixnay more cause their best songs are on it), but Smash was still a good one.

is hard to choose between smash and ignition, they are both good in its own way, but, smash hit me more than ignition so i had to go for it

Ignition is better in my opinion. There are more awesome songs in this album...not saying that songs on SMASH suck, but, you know. It's as simple as that.

kick him when he's down is a killer song... however, I think the best on that album are "nothing from something" and "forever and a day".

Smash got me into the Offspring... but Ignition revealed a whole new world for me :) This album got me into the hardcore/punk music and culture.
So I choose Ignition.
Besides that my fave Offspring song is "We Are One"

They both have some of the bands best songs.
My fav songs on smash: Smash, Self Esteem, Gotta Get Away, Come out and Play, and Bad Habit.

In my opinion Smash is better album than Ignition. Why? Smash contains my favourite songs: Bad Habit and Self Esteem. Ignition is also very very good album and I like it but not quite as Smash.
