The Offspring: Ignition

Sound — 8
Offspring have a weird blend of music. It's kind of like punk mixed with heavy, but probably more punk inclined. There are some really great songs in here including "Original Prankster." The only problem with Offspring is that they do sound kind of repetitive, and there isn't a lot of variety in their songs. The songs themselves are great, and most of them quite catchy, but it would be nice to hear one that was a little different sounding than the others.

Lyrics — 6
The lyrics are of average quality. Some of them are meaningful but most are just the usual talk about relationships. Their singer has a good set of pipes but it he doesn't use enough tones in the songs. It's the same voice belting out at you the whole CD. If their was some back-up singing it would make the cd a little nicer too.

Overall Impression — 8
This is a typical Offspring album. It's got a good number of quick little songs that are both catchy and mostly moves at a fast speed. These sort of songs are the ones that have made them so popular and in this CD they stay true to form. None of it is garbage, but they just get a little repitive after a while.
