What do you think about the Americana album? I think it's the best album, but not many people here like it though and I don't know why. Vote in the poll for what you think of the Americana album.

I'd say it's their 2nd best album!
When I downloaded it, I would have it on repeat whenever I listened to it.

way to go and make the poll options as confusing as hell

There was no "it's good but not their best" option. That's what I would have put. I don't like the more commercial Americana/CO1 stuff much but at least there's no tracks that I don't like (unlike on CO1 where I usually skip Want You Bad, One Fine Day and Denial Revisited). Pay the Man is an excellent way to finish the album, also one of my favourite Offspring songs.

It's not bad but it set them up for CO1 and now so many people think they're posers and sell outs. And CO1 is probably why Splinter sold so little, which is a shame because its their best in my opinion.

Just as good as the rest of them, of course! I like all albums, more or less. My fave album is Ignition, then IOTH.

It used to be my fave to listen to as a whole but I got slightly bored of it recently.

I like them all, but there are better ones than this one. Don't get me wrong, I can't say that any one of them is bad, but this isn't the best.

Americana is my second favorite...nothing has beat Smash yet.

Americana is ALL appreciated appart from Pretty Fly, though it does make me giggle sometimes, i think that song irritates me because it seems to be the song that defines Offspring to people who don't know them... and there are so many other songs that showcase them much, much better, and i find it so fucking frustrating when someone says they love Offspring, but only know Americana... :mad:

But WTF do i know? Guess that has no bearing on the actual ALBUM ITSELF and there are still some fucking awesome songs, like Pay The Man...
