  1. Indestructible is the document of a band retaining their energy and refining their vision to be honest to themselves and their fans, while spitting venom in the eyes of their detractors. [Oct 2003, p.115]
  2. Rancid are currently the best and most consistent and most observant rock n roll writers on the planet.
  3. A nineteen track salvo of glorious musical mayhem.
  4. It's when Rancid downshift that things get really interesting. [22/29 Aug 2003, p.131]
  5. 80
    Rancid find plenty of ways to bend punk's rules. [Sep 2003, p.127]
  6. If you know Rancid and love Rancid, you will love this record like an old friend.
  7. Indestructible feels a lot less dangerous than their previous discs.
  8. 75
    After ten years, Rancid's still-rock-solid kinship is evident in their lock-step chemistry. [Oct 2003, p.108]
  9. While dull moments are few and far between, there's little among these 19 tracks to rival such hummable past glories as Time Bomb or Roots Radicals. [Oct 2003, p.113]
  10. They're not out to break ground as much as to perfect a sound they consider timeless -- and on portions of Indestructible, they nail it.
  11. It often lacks the charge of inspired discovery that accompanied its '90s predecessors.
  12. This is an essential purchase for any Rancid fan.

    I do not think there is a bad track on this album. For me it seems Rancid have become better in the later albums, the mix of ska and punk rock combined with an almost gospel sounding organ in most of their songs gives them a totally unique sound. And fall back down is just a quality tune! Full Review »

    Meh. That's really all that I can say about this album. It's so bland that I can't even get up the energy to hate any of these songs. It's just one big swath of blah. There are certainly better Rancid albums and there are certainly better punk and ska bands than Rancid. Full Review »

    For people to try and state what a band should and shouldn't do is ridiculous. Especially about a band as talented and versatile as Rancid. They can't release the same album over and over. Indestructible is expansive and fun to listen and Rancid is a great band. Full Review »
