I love this fricken band.... so good. Never expected something this good at this point in their career. RFRG could beat Ixnay for me, but i've loved Ixnay for years so I need to see how long RFRG lasts

RFRG is too poppy. I love the offspring, I really do. I have since I was 3. But they died with this record. I'm done with their new stuff, I can't handle the blatant rip offs, and the poppyness. The offspring peaked, and are going to continue to drop off from here on out I guess. I'll still see them live and buy the remastered smash. But I'm not going to buy this or any other new offspring album. This was really disappointing. =[

though is suppose this opinion is completely counterproductive with respect to the title of this thread, because haven't given it a good enough listen. and choosing last place is like choosing the freakin hot supermodel you'd least like to make love to. [edit: well, not quite like that]

btw i have had 'you're gonna go far kid' in my head all day. that song is concentrated awesomeness

The first 4 songs and RAFRAG are incredible. I would say this is definitely worth the wait. Hearing Trust in You in my car will probably get me many speeding tickets. And for some reason I think Stuff is Messed Up is probably my favorite song on the album too. There's something about that I can't quite put my finger on...

Well I usually rank the albums

Ignition
Americana
Smash
Ixnay
CO1
S/T
Splinter

I'm not exactly sure where i want to put RAFRAG at the moment, but i'm quite sure its going to somewhere in the top three... maybe even number 1. I'm also rethinking my Ixnay position since i've been listening the hell out of it lately (well, before I heard RAFRAG), so i may even switch that with Smash. I'm going to have to wait a little longer until i'll know where RAFRAG sits.

My review on RAFRAG:
I had already heard Half-Truism (live) and Hammerhead when I heard the album, and loved both. So I just when down the list and listened to the whole thing. And loved Half-Truism even more studio, and hey, who cant love Hammerhead.

At first, I was scared of certain songs (yes, You're Gonna Go Far, Kid, I'm pointing at you) due to a sort of "Fall Out Boy-ish" opening. The I heard the chorus. Dance, Fucker, Dance. probably one of my favorites now. Also I really liked Stuff Is Messed Up and Nothingtown.

I like how I reminds me a lot of Ixnay.

Smash will always be my favorite album. Nothing can change that. Even if rise and fall or the next album they do is way better than smash it cant be replaced. My favorite is smash... but best honestly I would have to say Americana. Just a really great assortment of songs. I think CO1 would have been a much better album if the production wasnt so damn clean. Too polished. The songs are great on that album. I just have a hard time getting into it.

Oh boy... this is tough, and I'm sure that I'm biased since Rise is still so new. Right now, I'd say:

8) Splinter
7) Conspiracy of One
6) Smash
5) Americana
4) The Offspring
3) Ignition
2) Rise and Fall Rage and Grace
1) Ixnay on the Hombre

Currently, I like Rise much, much more than Ixnay... but since Ixnay has pretty much always been my favorite from them every since I bought it (was the second Offspring record I ever got), I'm going to assume that, once Rise gets old, Ixnay will be at the top again.

That said, I don't really listen to the Offspring anymore. Splinter was alright for me, but I kind of fell off after that album. My interest was resurrected when I got the Music Video Collection... which was why I signed up here. But I don't really ever listen to them anymore- til this album. It's really awesome, and I think it has potential to make me listen to it for years to come, even if I'm over the Offspring in general. I love the variety in it, and how they clearly spent so much time on each song.

Still a bit too biased. Overall I definitely like it more than Splinter and Conspiracy of One. Possibly Americana too, but I dunno. Need more time.

Why does splinter always get such a bad score? it might be short but there are several songs on it that i enjoy listening too

06-15-2008, 03:48 AM
1) Americana (because it has almost all of my favourite Offspring songs)
2) Smash
3) Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace
4) Ixnay On The Hombre
5) Ignition
6) Self-Titled
7) Conspiracy of One
8) Splinter

The difference between 3 upto and including 6 is not big. About 1,2,7 and 8 I'm sure.

killboybowerhead
06-15-2008, 03:50 AM
probably because a few good songs doesnt add up to a great album. maybe an ep. Rise and Fall actually really reminded me of splinter in some ways.. but it overwhelming gave me the feeling of ohh this is what they were trying to do with splinter. Splinter definitely had a lot of variety too.

I'm sure that RAFRAG may move up a place or two in the future.

Right well, i have been listening to RAFRAG for a few days constantly, and i must say this has been the best since the 1st half of americana. So my faves are;

1. Ixnay
2. Smash
3. RAFRAG
4.Ignition
5.Americana
6.CO1
7.S/T
8.Splinter

To be fair, all the albums are great and i relly enjoyed splinter...but compaired to the other albums its just not up to scratch, but they have got their finger out of their backsides and make a good album with RAFRAG now.

WELL DONE GUYS!!!!!!!!

RFRG is too poppy. I love the offspring, I really do. I have since I was 3. But they died with this record. I'm done with their new stuff, I can't handle the blatant rip offs, and the poppyness. The offspring peaked, and are going to continue to drop off from here on out I guess. I'll still see them live and buy the remastered smash. But I'm not going to buy this or any other new offspring album. This was really disappointing. =[


americana is number 3 on your list, and that seems to be the offspring's poppiest album. pretty fly, shes got issues, walla walla, why dont you get a job...for rfrg i guess you can consider kristy, nothingtown, and fix you (even though i see it as a failed ballad, not a pop song) poppy...i dont see rock bottom as poppy, nor rise and fall...at least not nearly as poppy as those songs on americana...so im not sure what you're trying to say here.


anyhow...my list:


1. Ignition
2. Smash
3. Ixnay on the Hombre
4. Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace
5. The Offspring
6T. Conspiracy of One (solid, but with not too many standouts)
6T. Americana (some great songs, but with too many terrible one's as well)
8. Splinter

The more i listen to Rise and Fall; Rage and Grace (which is everyday) the more I love this new album. Conspiracy of one and Smash are my other two favorites!
I always knew the offspring would only get better as they grow as a band and i believe those three albums are solid proof.
OFFSPRING keep up the great work; u have a divine gift!!

I must say that up until about 4 months ago, when i heard of the new Offspring album, i didn't actually listen to all their music. I then grabbed out the dust covered albums from my dad's CD collection, and played them all through. It's great, because i never realised the depth of music the Offspring had, until the new album sparked an offspring-a-thon.

4 - Rise and Fall
5 - Splinter
6 - Smash
7 - Self Titled
8 - Conspiracy

Still listening to Rise and Fall the most but I've ranked it 4th cause I think in a year or so I'll have gotten a bit bored of it... Ixnay is timeless.

Only excellent albums are timeless. That's what makes the difference.

1) Americana
2) Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace
3) Conspiracy of One
4) Ignition
5) Smash
6) Ixnay on the Hombre
7) Splinter
8) The Offspring

It's really hard to rank the albums, especially Ignition, Ixnay, and Smash, which are all pretty close in my mind.
