    Default The novelty has worn off - How do you feel about Days Go By now?

    DGB is not new anymore. Has your opinion of it changed in any way?

    The Future is Now: 7.5
    Secrets From The Underground: 8
    Days Go By: 7.5
    Turning Into You: 9.5
    Hurting As One: 9.5
    Cruisin' California: 7
    All I Have Left is You: 7
    OC Guns: 8.5
    Dirty Magic: 6 (great song, new version doesn't do too much for me)
    I Wanna Secret Family With You: 7
    Dividing By Zero: 9.5
    Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to Hell: 9.5 (maybe 10)

    Might also be interesting to see where it ranks among other albums. I don't have the time for that right now though.

    Side note: The last measure of the bridge in Dividing By Zero bothers me. It's too predictable, and the guitars should be doing something different, or a different rhythm or something.

    It still has a feeling of being new, so I will give it a year until I can give you an answer.

    Man, I wish music took as long to get old to me as it seems to for you...

    It took like two years for me to feel that RAFRAG wasn't new anymore. I don't know why that is.

    Pretty much, when I know all the parts and transitions, it's hard for a song to still seem new to me. It might linger in a sort of "new-ish" category for a little while after that, but not for too long.

    I started listening to the Offspring in 2001, so for me, I have a weird way of thinking about their songs. I spent two years listening to songs from Smash, Ixnay, Americana, and CO1. So when Splinter came out, those were the only Offspring I knew, so Splinter seemed so different to me. Since then, I still consider Splinter, RAFRAG, and DGB to be the "new" Offspring. Around 2004, I found out that they had two earlier albums than Smash. I picked up Self-Titled and Ignition and those also had a different sound to me than the Smash thru CO1 era. So these albums I consider to be the "old" Offspring. So when someone mentions The Offspring, I think of the style they had between 1994-2000.

    Hurting As One has really grown on me. I never disliked the song, but it's become one of my favorites recently.
    Cruisin' California will always be awesome to me, it's so damn catchy, I'll stand by it, regardless of the haters.
    Divided By Zero, Future Is Now, Secrets From The Underground are also my favorite tracks...
    O.C. Guns is by far the worst song they've ever put out. It's just annoying. I always skip it, and I never skip an Offspring song.

    All in all, a solid album. Good to hear from the boys. Rise and Fall was a good album too, don't get all the hate that gets...

    If I had to pick a top three list of favorite albums, it'd have to be... (in no order)
    - Ixnay on the Hombre
    - Conspiracy of One
    - Americana

    I think Splinter was their weakest CD by far. Really only a couple stand out songs on that one.



    Self Titled was bad ass, I love their original raunchy sound.
    Ignition is great, they kind of seemed to have progressed since self titled...
    Smash, obviously the one that made them famous, while I find it too overrated, it's still a very good album.
    Ixnay might have to be my all time favorite, I don't know why, it's just so damned good. Meaning of Life and Leave it Behind are two of my all time favorites. Amazed is really underrated too.
    Americana was the first CD of theirs I ever owned, I got it for Christmas one year. (My first CD of any band actually)
    Conspiracy of One was a great album. I love Want You Bad, I feel it is the standout track on that album.
    Splinter, like I said, pretty weak... except Da Hui kicked ass. Spare Me The Details and Lightning Rod were good too.
    Rise and Fall was good. I love Half Truism, Kristy and Nothingtown. (Does anyone else think the final song "Rise and Fall" sounds way too much like Green Day's song "American Idiot?")
    Days Go By was another great release by them. I've already listed my opinion on it above....


    I am eager to hear what they come out with next.

    I'm not a trendy asshole
    I do what I want
    I do what I feel like
    I'm not a trendy asshole
    Don't give a fuck
    If it's good enough for you

    I think alot has to do with the mood you're in too!
    There are days I only listen to Igntion and Smash. There are other days (or rather weeks) that I'm totally addicted to Ixnay. Other times I only listen to Conspiracy of One and the list goes on and on like that!!! (if that makes sense?!) But I really think that DGB is as solid as any work out there because in all honesty, I NEVER .. EVER skip a song when I listen to it. I think it is a very very tight album. Never wears off ..

    It takes a long time for music to get "old" to me, too. Probably because I listen to such a huge variety of music that unless an album is brand new to me, I rarely listen to the same album twice in a week... maybe even in a month.

    Anyway, I never listen to this album. It's not a bad album, but I'm just not into it. I don't get the urge to listen to it. I think I've listened to it once in the last two months.
