    They care not a whit about market share, EDM remixers or having annoying YouTube stars and/or rappers guest on their sessions, choosing instead to light up psychic votive candles for Joe Strummer, Desmond Dekker and Lemmy in order to capture the very same spirit those artists conjured all those decades ago.

    Trouble Maker is up there with their best.

    There’s no formal breakthroughs on Trouble Maker beyond the astounding economy, unless you think the harmonica on “Buddy” or Clash-goes-“Ring of Fire” chords on “Telegraph Avenue” makes this the band’s folk-punk album.

    Trouble Maker is a return to force for Rancid< and is the musical equivalent of a football team winning a major trophy after years in the wilderness and the absolute elation that comes with that. However there is a downside. ... Rancid could have released Trouble Maker at any point since they began.

    This is an honest and harmless record that isn't trying to be anything but the summer 2017 soundtrack for middle-aged males operating, patronizing or loitering within tattoo/piercing emporiums everywhere. [No. 144, p.59]

    Rancid don't do anything new here, but they sound more fired-up than ever. [1 Jul 2017, p.51]

    Like their disappointing 2014 album ...Honor Is All We Know, Trouble Maker is the sound of a band going through the motions, telling the same stories over and over, bashing out the same riffs, and ultimately not connecting any punches.

    Same old stuff. If one song was exceptional, even if it was the 'same old stuff', I would have given it a higher rating. Sadly... no. VerySame old stuff. If one song was exceptional, even if it was the 'same old stuff', I would have given it a higher rating. Sadly... no. Very disappointing. Sad to see one of my favorite bands going through the motions. Punks now posers. Expand
