Today is the 6th anniversary of the release of Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. Happy anniversary, Rise!
Time flies... Despite how reaction might seem divided, even today, I think we have this one to thank for keeping The Offspring from fading into obscurity.
Night brings bad dreams
Bad dreams and guillotines
whaaaaat the fuuuuck I feel like this just came out. Man, how time flies...
Yeah the only Offspring album I didn't have to pay for:D Still remember being on a bus on the way home from summer work, when my phone rang and it was Czech music TV breaking the news to me that I won a copy in their contest:) How happy I was... brilliant album anyway
Tomorrow, you wake up, and it's 20 years anniversary. I remember how we got Hammerhead, a great song and then we cried a bit about details of its video. I ignored album leaks then, bought it and made it special. It wasn't perfect, it had some problems with cohesiveness and horrible influences, but it definitely had some very high quality songs like Hammerhead, A Lot Like Me, YGGFK and Kristy.
Time flies .... It seems only yesterday that I took the scooter and went to the store to pick up this disc.
Damn, it really does feel to me like it was just released yesterday.
I remember the antecipation and anexiety for it to come up, I must have listened to it non-stop (by non-stop I mean I would listen to no other album or band) for weeks or months back in 2008.
The Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace tour also marks the first time I ever saw the band live, the feeling of listening and seeing the band play "Stuff Is Messed Up" is something I'll most likely never forget.
I think this album is a bit underrated, I think it's better than its previous two, for example.
