'Damn pirates' - You sound like the RIAA.

But that aside, kudos to the band - this may be my favourite Offspring album so far!

Good work guys.

This is the best fucking album i have heard in a long time. And as a musician i can say its safe to say i have heard a SHIT load of albums.

It had the perfect balance between punk/rock, soft acoustics, even a powerful pop song sounded perfect! and of course i LOVE their new Alt. Rock sound it is fucking pimping!!!

This album can cure cancer and aids at the same time its THAT good.

I've been waiting for this album to come out since the day it was first mentioned, and now it's finally here. Of course ther are leaks already, but i'm buying it the day it comes out (it's this friday the 13th in my country). And I don't understand those whiners in other threads that are bitching about the album, i mean, we all anticipated this album for so long, so why to bitch about it now?

Anyway, i am glad that i can say...

...They are back

I dedicate this 100th post to our beloved The Offspring! The new album is so freaking great, I can tell that for sure even while I DID NOT LISTEN RAFRAG yet. But I am 100% sure it will make your old fans happy and will bring you loads of new fans aswell because everyone is so damn loving that!
Thank you, The Offspring, we appreciate you for hard working and showing huge respect to your old fans, we can feel that you were thinking of us mainly while creating RAFRAG!!!

thank you for this little piece of heaven (I know that sounds really lame but I couldn't find another way to describe this awesomeness).

Just add this to the collection of albums that I will never get sick of (hey go figure... those are pretty much only the Offspring albums :)).

Well done, this is incredible!

Stuff is messed up sounds A LOT like a mix of Americana and Bad Habit...and a bit of AC/DC too.

HOLY SHIT!
BEST. OFFSPRING. ALBUM. EVER!!

A Lot Like Me, Kristy and Fix You kick SO much ass! Theyve evolved so much since Splinter, while retaining their feel... its so awesome.
The drumwork is amazing, the bass lines are incredible and the solos, oh man, I shat my pants every time!! This has potential to be as huge as Americana and Smash were.

I absolutley love this album to bits, i cant describe it because it's undescribable! my god.. those preiews on youtube had me second guessing his album but not now oh no.. it's a beast of an album!! that solo in Trust in you.. OH MY!! :D i'm sure ill grow to love some of the slower songs, but i think thats case we've never had so many slow songs on an offspring album before, it's normally all fast but i'd rate this as heaven to listen to, as it must of been recorded in heaven cause its that good!!

It kicks major ass and is a lot better than I anticipated! I didn't think it would suck, of course, but this may well be one of my favorite offspring albums. I just finished listening through it once and I'll listen to it again in a couple of minutes. I'm out of words to describe how great it is.

Good job Offspring! You guys are fucking geniuses!

So far, I don't think it's better than Ixnay.
But probably better than Americana, Conspiracy Of One, Splinter.

It's a damn good album, I'm just so addicted to it that I cannot even say in words I what I think about this album.
Of course, It's not perfect it has its bad parts, but I'm sure it is TOTALLY worth it to listen to the album.

I'm halfway thorugh for the first time and I have to say that this is an awesome row of six songs. Who complained about slow songs? Especially the verses are totally insane. And even A Lot Like Me turns to some piece of great rock music. I couldn't care less if this is still Punk Rock or not. It's just great music.
The flanger effect guitars, background vocals etc. pp.: just great!

I'm happy!

Yup, it's in that really fast bit towards the end of the song, in amongst "Xbox" (I think), "boob jobs" and others, but he says it all too fast to pick out them all.

My will is so strong, I still have heard only 2 new songs. Im gonna aply new method how to listen the new album. Im not gonna hear all songs at once, but one by one, to enjoy them fully. Maybe not even in a one day.

Found me a while to find. Anyway, it's time for a bump.

I love the new album in case you couldn't tell. My thanks to The Offspring and Bob Rock too. The new sound pays off better than I'd thought it could have, it's more original and daring than I though it would be. On top of all that- among other things- the album is AMAZING.

It is VERY different from what you expect. Very very very very. Hammerhead was chosen as first single, but it's like the most Offspring-ish sounding song of the album and don't judge about the album based on Hammerhead. There are strong influences of Green Day (few songs), Muse(1 song), Linkin Park(1 song). Also guitar sound is pretty unique for The Offspring and it seems to be that Offspring created Rise And Fall (the song) with some kind of twisted purpose so it really use pretty much all of the Green Day's American Idiot's (song again) attributes. I didn't say anything bad yet and I will not :) Let's give Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace some time.

I also wanna say this! The new album is so fuckin' good, you guys tried to break new grounds and still stay true to your hardcore fans and you did it! You fuckin' did it! Every band should take example from the Offspring of how a good rock band shall make albums! Fuck your Chinese Democracy, Axl Rose, when it's never gonna be released... :D

This album does kick ass.
It has almost all of my preferred genres of music, from fast punk beats to softer ballads. The lyrics all mean something, unlike a lot of pop bands (don't kill me!) nowadays talking about how their girlfriend dumped them or they're so sad they want to cut themselves open. They show the views of the world through a sometimes fast, sometimes slow, always awesome album. Plus Dexter's voice reaches into several realms of which I never thought it could. Good examples include A Lot Like Me and Fix You.
To The Offspring, I couldn't thank you enough for making this album. I know that's fangirlish, but seriously. I enjoy it more than I thought I would.
Now dance, fucker, dance!
