It's the first time I heard most of those songs. I really like "Vultures" and "Dammit, I Changed Again." Other than that, the album is kind of repetitive (sp?). It's the worst Offspring album I would say. Maybe it will grow on me. I don't know. (I still have to hear Self Titled yet. ) Does anybody feel the way I do about Conspiracy of One?

Most people agree with you. I don't, however. I feel it's one of their best. A bit repetitive at times, but Come Out Swinging is awesome, and Living In Chaos is the second best song of all time in my opinion.

Americana is easily their worst album ever I feel. Just so many outright horrible songs on there!

It was such a long time since I listened to it, but I must have had a reason not to. :o Self-titled is the second best (Smash is the best :) ), so it's way better.

I don't know

I really like conspiracy of one, I think that you will soon like it more :D

I like Conspiracy of One. However, I think Smash is their best album, seconded by Ignition.

Like most Offspring albums, Conspiracy of One has songs that I like, and songs I don't like. I don't have a favorite Offspring album, but I have favorite Offspring songs.

Repetitive is the last thing Id call it, even if its not the best CD its the most diverse easily.

Awesome songs on Co1:

Million Miles Away
Dammit, I Changed Again
Huck It
Come Out Swinging
Want You Bad
Living In Chaos

And Vultures just for that guitar riff, its fun to play :)

I personaly think it is their best album. Want you bad rocks!!

There is no "Huck It" on mine.

Here are the Offspring's albums in order from my favourite to least favourite.

1. Americana ("Pay the Man", "The Kids Aren't Alright", and "The End of the Line" make this album a must)

2. Splinter (Splinter is full of great songs, except for "The Worst Hangover Ever" and "When You're in Prison".

3. Ignition and Ixnay on the Hombre (Tied for third. Ignition has gems like "Kick Him When He's Down", "Forever and a Day" and "Dirty Magic", but Ixany has "Gone Away", "Leave it Behind" and "Amazed".)

5. Conspiracy of One

6. Smash ("Nitro" and "Come Out and Play" are some of the only good songs.)

Conspiracy Of One didn't open to me right away...but when I listened to it a few times I loved it!!! I think it's the second best album from the best albums from them!!!

Want You Bad, Original Prankster, Living in Chaos, and Special Delivery aren't very good. Otherwise it's a pretty good CD.

im not a fan of the album, there are some bright spots on it but its definately my least favourite!

JohnnyNemesis
05-13-2005, 04:07 PM
Want You Bad is one of their worst songs in my opinion.

Want You Bad is one of their worst songs in my opinion.


its not as bad as Original Prankster, Living in Chaos, and Special Delivery

JohnnyNemesis
05-13-2005, 04:18 PM
Umm...


Living In Chaos is the second best song of all time in my opinion.

LiC is also the most original song they've come out with in ages.

WYB is completely horrible. Damn near emoish.

Gayman
05-13-2005, 04:23 PM
I love Want You Bad!!!! But opinions are opinions and you can't fight of them!

Chainsaw
05-13-2005, 04:24 PM
it's a good album... i wouldn't say the worst but you're right that it gets a little repetitive

Gayman
05-13-2005, 04:26 PM
Do you like Want Yoy Bad?

Brines
05-13-2005, 04:27 PM
Here's my order:

1. Ixnay
2. Smash
3. Ignition
4. Americana
5. s/t
6. Splinter
7. Co1

And yes, I thought Co1 was fucking horrible. There were some alright songs, but most sucked.

Homer
05-13-2005, 04:28 PM
I've never heard of Want Yoy Bad... sorry.

Jackish
05-13-2005, 06:14 PM
I've never heard of Want Yoy Bad... sorry.

That was pathetic.

Anyway.

Want you bad is my least favorite song. Its so cheesy and horrible. Its the only thing that puts me off seeing them live. Could be a bit cringe-worthy. Oh well I'll just have to go with it I guess...

Does anyone like Denial, Revisited? It may be a slow, poppy song, but it's actually pretty good.

JohnnyNemesis
05-13-2005, 07:05 PM
Denial, Revisited is one of those songs that you hate at first, then a little while later you love it so much that you wanna smack yourself for ever saying bad things about it!

I really really like it personally.

Conspiracy of One is the only offspring album i have yet to purchase - i would like to buy it if only just to complete my collection. Is it worth my $29 Australian dollars? give me some pros and cons here...

0r4ng3
05-13-2005, 07:07 PM
How much is 29 Australian dollars compared to American dollars? If it's about $15, then you should buy it.

Homer
05-13-2005, 07:09 PM
just buy the damn thing

05-13-2005, 07:23 PM
I actually think this is one of their best. This and Ixnay are my favorites outta the ones I own. Their worst is...um...I dunno... I don't listen to Americana as much as I do the other ones so I guess that one.

Americana is easily their worst album ever I feel. Just so many outright horrible songs on there!

I thought I was the only one who thinks Living in Chaos is perfect :D

Americana?!?!!? It has TKAA, Pay the man, staring at the sun, have you ever, and end of the line. Yes it has the second worse offspring song-No Brakes (the worst being Da Hui) but its definitally not the worst.

Conspiracy of One is an awesome album! Special Delivery is such a cool song! It is my favorite song by The Offspring actually. I really hate Want You Bad. It's corny and sleazy and if you listen to the lyrics it's really off! They're pretty much saying "I want you to act like a slut and dress like a skank and fuck me all the time, stop acting nice and get some handcuffs on me! I'm such a dirty sick minded bastard!" It is such a terrible song and is really sexist! This song makes me ashamed or The Offspring, but yet again they are men, sex sex sex all the time.

I like CO1. It was the second album I received by "The Offspring". First was Americana. I donīt think itīs their worst. My favourites are Ixnay and Americana. My least favourite is probably Splinter because of "The worst hangover ever" and "When youīre in prison". But I love all the songs by them so I think itīs useless about which album is good or not.

Living in Chaos
05-14-2005, 04:10 AM
I actually really like Conspiracy of One. I like most of the songs on there, then again, i like nearly every Offspring song. Special Delivery, Living in Chaos, Denial, Revisited, i really like them.

Mimile
05-14-2005, 04:12 AM
Co1 is a great album .... but not the best =)

For me the greatest album is Ixnay ... or maybe Smash :)

Swill
05-14-2005, 05:59 AM
Conspiracy is great........its by no means shit.i found however that it took a while to grow on me. i bought it the day it came out what 5years ago now and listened to it none stop and to be honest was really disappointed with it, especially since americana before it was so awesome...........but eventually after a few weeks it really started to shine.....come out swinging and million miles away are brilliant.....want you bad and denial revisited are some of the most original things the spring have done and songs like conspiracy of one, living in chaos, vultures and dammit i changed again are just great songs that fill up the tracklist. I really love conspiracy.dont understand why people dis it....???????????

WHAAA? No Brakes is AWESOME dude!

Pay The Man, Staring At The Sun, Have You Ever, No Brakes, and Americana are great songs. The horrible ones? Why Don't You Get A Job, She's Got Issues, Feelings, The Kids Aren't Alright, and yes, Pretty Fly For A White Guy! Add to that he fact that Walla Walla is just plain average, and I think that is their worst album.

I've noticed that all the people that were my friends that loved Offspring stopped listening to them after that CD :(

Ixnay is by far their best album. here is my list

Ixnay on the Hombre
Conspiracy of One
Smash
Americana
Igintion
Splinter
Self titled.

they are all really great cd's i love all of them.

melbert
05-14-2005, 09:28 AM
Americana: the one I liked the least.
Why?
Why Don't You Get a Job and Pretty Fly totally ruined it for me.
I absolutely love Pay the Man, Staring at the Sun, The Kids Aren't Alright, She's Got Issues, and Americana... But geez.
My favorite album being Ixnay... I love every song. Well, Don't Pick it Up is iffy.
But I can totally handle it.

Conspiracy... I liked it, however, I listen to it rarely.
Want You Bad was okay. I wouldn't put it on my cornflakes though.
I really liked Come Out Swinging.
I don't know. I don't have much to say now.

Dude conspiracy of one rocks its the 3rd best after
1.americana
2.splinter.
the best song is one fine day but come out swinging rocks and so do the rest :D

05-14-2005, 03:18 PM
Warning!
C01 has some really catchy songs. I think that Want You Bad is an awesome song. Anyone agree?

One fine day has a kind of constant awesomeness attached to it, I'm sure Dexter has a lot of fun singing it.
I think it's the 3rd best song on Co1 definitely,

Special delivery being the 1st and Come out swinging being 2nd

yeah americana is questionable but Conspiracy of One to me seems like filler, it really good and very weel done and all but nothing more than filler. I know someone else said this before, if forgot who but its true, almost like its tacked on to the offspring series

I don't dislike it. I liked Americana the least, Conspiracy is next on the list. I liked Vultures, Dammit, Million Miles Away, Conspiracy of One... But Original Prankster was my least favorite. :cool:
Yeah I'd say the album definitely wasn't their best.
So let's rock, shall we?

I like you dude! I totally agree with you on that one! accept they shouldn't have put One Fine Day after Special Delivery though coz they just don't blend well after each other so after the extreme head-banging coolness of Special Delivery there's this weird little catchy song after it, I don't like it coz it kinda pisses me off like that but if it were after Original Prankster (One of my favorite songs, go ahead beat me up) It would of sounded better and I probably would have liked the song much better. So what I'm saying is the fact that One Fine Day is after Special Delivery kinda makes me like it less but dude i totally agree about Special Delivery being the best song on the album!

Yatesy
05-17-2005, 01:39 AM
CO1 like Americana has some excellent songs like Million Miles Away, Come Out Swinging and One Fine Day. But also has the songs which aren't so great, the main one being Want You Bad which is probably the worst song. So basically it's a great album, but lacks consistancy of their older stuff.

the first time i listened to it i said:i dont like it....but u have to listen to it many times thinking that it's not the worst(ehhh but not the best....)and enjoying every song.........then you will see that there are songs like come out swinging, special delivery, living in chaos or conspiracy of one that are ones of the best songs of the offspring...........i don't know why everybody hates co1........its one of the best for me at least.....

Skate Rat 19
05-17-2005, 01:17 PM
