The Offspring
The Offspring

To most people, The Offspring are best known as the purveyors of the punk/metal/pop rock sound contained in Smash, their most commercially successful album. However, there is a decidedly traditional punk side to their music, a side that can be seen most clearly in this, their self-titled debut.
Produced by punk stalwart Thom Wilson, this record captures The Offspring at their best - raw and raunchy, with a well-defined political awareness. The guitars screech more than thunder, the drums rattle instead of pound, and Dexter Holland's vocals threaten rather than growl. That said, it is not hard to see why mainstream success passed by the band early on. This album undoubtedly lacks the commercial sheen of later releases, but that does not necessarily make it bad. In fact, if you are a devout punk rocker and dislike some of the music in Smash, then this may be the right album for you.

My fave Offspring album

I know, Smash was the one that got them where they are (and made Epitaph the most money), but this album is incredible, it is raw sounding and has a nice punk sound to it.

I would like to see this one get a re-issue, Remastered (not that it needs it), and including the "I'll Be Waiting/Blackball" single from 1986 and maybe some tracks from the Manic Subsidal days (check out the song "Hopeless" on youtube).

Great release

This is actually a fucking sweet album, despite ripping off TSOL's sound. I used to have it years ago, and it's definitely better than Ignition and almost as good as Smash. These guys obviously became terrible later on, but honestly, this and Smash are some of the few epitaph releases I still actually like.
