    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.

    I think that this is the worst Rancid to date. The title track is one of few that I could actually stand to listen through. Red Hot Moon was alright, but even these songs sound like second rate versions of Out Come The Wolves songs. If you are going to play punk like on LETS GO! and SELF-TITLED, then play it! If you are going to play ska/raggae like WOLVES and WONT WAIT, then do it. This I think that this is the worst Rancid to date.

Electronics and rap should stay with the transplants, not cross over to Rancid. One listen was enough for me. Especially after the music video with them parading around with Kelly Osbourne and Good Charlotte. Skip this album. Expand

    After ten years, Rancid's still-rock-solid kinship is evident in their lock-step chemistry. [Oct 2003, p.108]
  2. It often lacks the charge of inspired discovery that accompanied its '90s predecessors.
  3. Their warmest album ever.
