    Simply put, the Offspring need to make a record that is great and not just good to sustain their success. They're at the point in their career when they can no longer release a Splinter and get a Gold record cruising off of the success of Americana and Smash. They need another Americana and Smash (even though I liked Splinter, the masses thought it was just an average album).

    Also, I don't know if it's this new forum format or my laptop, but I can't make paragraphs and it's extremely aggravating.
    well i think you should have to support the band but the sad truth is they will probably never make another album where every song on it is good

    Has there been one? (just kidding)

    Honestly I don't like what's going on in music in general right now (with a few exceptions). It's a lot of one-hit-wonders or "pushed youtube or casting show stars" that do fit whatever category/music is "hip" right now. Others (like Die Toten Hosen for example) changed their style from something that was pretty cool and different into mainstream crap ... one wonders is it because they're getting older or because they want to sell more records and get more radio play and thus make more money or because they aren't "rebellious" or "courageous" enough anymore?

    I haven't gotten around to buying the record yet, but I most certainly will. However, I am not obligated to buy a subpar product, I will only do so out of my dedication to the band. I bought Smash twice, RaF,RaG twice, Greatest Hits twice, Ixnay on the Hombre, Ignition, Self-Titled, and Conspiracy of One, all legitimately. For some reason, I never bought Americana or Splinter, but I am a huge fan of buying the actual music. I am just not excited to go out and buy Days Go By.

    yeah I know what you mean I actually thought about not buying the album I went to the record release party and they were selling it for $14.99 the next day I went to the mall and bought it for $9.99 just because I wanted to have the physical copy and see the artwork for the songs

    I don't really use cd's at all anymore I bought RAFRAG the day it came out and have only listened to it 2 or 3 times and never all the way through and if Days Go By would have come out on vinyl I probably would have never bought the cd

    I think I'm going to stop buying CDs. Vinyl has made a big comeback as a retro cool collector's item, and it's obvious now that as long as the album format is around, so will be LPs. I hate buying a CD anymore because I know that's it's on the verge of being thrown away as a format and replaced by digital downloads once and for all.


    I've actually bought RaF,RaG three tims, counting the vinyl copy I purchased. Once on CD, once on vinyl, and once for a friend.

    I agree Days Go By will probably be the last cd I ever buy

    I think both records are phenomenal. They are a bit different in overall style, but it's all pure Offspring. I saw them live during their Splinter tour and that was amazing. All of the songs on Splinter are different than the others. Some you may not like, but there's enough variety that you are bound to love at least a few of them.
    I said, "Hi, I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete took of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    I bought 5 Days Go By, one for me and 4 as a present for my best friends on their birthdays and all of them loved Days Go By!

    I'm a rebel. I'll buy CD's as long as they are manufactured. I do DL some songs but I buy the CD's of the bands I really like. The last two I bought were Days Go By and Unwritten Law's Swan.

    Yes, I've heard the songs on Americana and Splinter until I couldn't stand them anymore, I've just never bought the albums. Those are the only two I left out for some reason.

    When I was 15, I downloaded every one of the (then) seven albums the Offspring had to offer, plus every known (at the time) b-side and unreleased song, all song-by-song, one at a time, on a 56K modem. Even though the only reason I did that was because I had no money and no alternative, I consider that my greatest act of fandom, way moreso than buying all the records (sometimes multiple times). It took like 15-30 minutes to download a single song on 56K, so it was some major dedication on my part.
