    The Offspring tried many things to make their freshest album sound good. There are rock songs, punk songs, party songs and also calm tracks on 'Days Go By'. But they are really bad in terms of writing songs, which really surprised me because their former CD 'Rise And Grace...' was very nice. I listened the album once and I won't listen to it more often because it isn't entertaining. All the tunes are similar and I would recommend those nearly 50 year-olds to just stop making music. It's not worth to listen to the whole thing when only 15% of 'Days Go By' are actually good. Expand

    These guys are going to get sued for plagiarism. They use to be an excellent punk band, but then they decided that what they wanted to be is the "funny" band, and made songs like "Pretty Fly for a White Guy" and "Hit That." Ugh. This album mixes in some of those types of songs along with some Rise Against and Foo Fighters ripoffs, clearly just desperate to get back on the radio. They need to stop. Expand

    Overall, Days Go By ends up as a solid record only because there are traces of The Offspring again and not a band that tries to copy others.

    At best, the songs on their ninth album are bland recreations of their past successes.

    The general rule with Offspring albums is that their buoyant Californian punk will always be pockmarked by two wildly irritating songs. So it is with Days Go By.
