Awesome. My favorite album. What's you guys' favorite song off the album? I think mine would be Million Miles Away. Those triple-layered vocals at the end get my blood pumping.

Holy shit, it's been this long.

Determining my favorite off CO1 is hard since CO1 strays a lot from their older stuff, and what appeals to me from the album is quite different from what appeals to me from their older albums.

They don't quite have a dark, energetic, depressed, intelligent song in this one, but they go into more alternative stuff.

I really like the atmosphere in the lyrics of the title track, but the fact that the second verse is identical to the first is kind of a killjoy. Likewise, Dammit I Changed Again feels very lazy when it comes to the lyrics. From the two, I prefer CO1.

Then there's Vultures, which I feel excels lyrically and in mood, but to some extent feels lackluster. Special Delivery is great, but being a joke song, it's not entirely satisfactory, and the atmosphere in Living in Chaos is amazing, but the song feels incomplete.

All Along has that energetic punk vibe, but it feels very insubstantial.

I would have to go with either CO1, Vultures, Special Delivery, or Living in Chaos... or all of them.

My favorite songs on CO1 are Denial, Revisited, wish they would play that one live, Dammit I Changed Again and Special Delivery are my other favorites. But i think there all good. On topic, i can't believe it's been 10 years sense CO1 came out as well!

Now we're making threads for every birthday of every Offspring album? 11 years? I get 10-year threads, or threads for the s/t release... but this is dumb. See y'all next month for the 8-year anniversary of Splinter...

I remember listening "Original Prankster" and "Want You Bad" all day, because of That, a friend lent me Americana, then "Defy You" came out, then another friend lent me "Smash" and then I became a FAN. So thanks CO1! And thanks Offspring for IXNAY ON THE HOMBRE!

Totally agree - MMA has to be one of my favorite Offspring songs. It has this great energy about it, and those interweaving vocal tracks at the end kick ass.

It's funny, my brother got me that album for my 6th birthday over 10 years ago.
Oddly enough, I understood most of the songs.

I recently found my copy in a binder of old CDs and played it. It was scratched to hell, so I may have to buy another copy.
:D
