    These two threads should be merged
    Drivers are rude
    Such attitudes
    But when I show my piece
    Complaints cease
    Something‘s odd
    I feel like I‘m God
    You stupid dumbshit goddam motherfucker

    Went out and bought them both yesterday - haven't had a listen yet, but I'm sure it'll piss all over the crappy quality versions I had before

    Default The Bass is awesome on Ignition

    I know the bass is too loud on Ignition, so I guess they'll change that. I've always thought some of the vocals could be more clear on Smash, like in Come Out and Play. It's gonna be interesting to hear what they change.
    I think the growling tone and volume of the bass on Ignition is part of what makes it such a classic album. Greg K. being pictured on the cd (from the photo in the booklet) only fuels my bias to the awesomeness of his sound.
    Anyone agree that the bass work on RAFRAG has shown some amazing growth musically?

    Seems to be about the same skill level to me. To be honest, I don't think The Offspring have any interest in writing more technical songs. They've gotten more accurate over their career, but not more technical. I guess that's one factor in my "tru punx bitching" about RFRAG, even though I really like it anyway. I would have liked to see them write some fast, technical shit, sort of like A Wilhelm Scream.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    There's really no point in remastering Ignition. I am serious. Unless they use magic to separate Dexter's voice from the music. That's the main problem with Ignition - his vocals are too quiet. And there's really no efficient way to change that. All they did with Ignition was applying so called "loudness" so as to increase the overall volume, say, by 3 dB or something. They also added high frequencies, I'm not sure if they added some more bass, 'cause I guess it was perfectly fine the way it was. And there's actually NOTHING more anyone else can do. If I had his vocals in one track and the music in another, I would be able to make it sound perfect. I'm not sure how songs were recorded in the early 90s, but let's face it, we are all equally helpless now when it comes to remastering.

    Ignition and Smash will be released on colored vinyl on 10th of march (yesterday). Cool.
