The Offspring: The Offspring

Sound — 8
The Offspring have always been my favorite band (Since i was 6 years old), and this album is great, but it doesn't stand up to the other albums. It is less refined and you can hear average filler spaces in the guitar when they didn't know what to do. The Offspring were the originators of that metal punk sound and were cast out from a lot of different punk groups for being "too different".

Lyrics — 10
Dexter has always had a unique voice and has been writing songs since he was 16, one of which made it on to this album, Beheaded. The lyrics are real world topics and actually make you think if you listen to them.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall a great album especially for those older punks like people who like The Ramones and what not. The person who reviewed it before me was mistaken as "Dirty Magic" is not on this album, but on Ignition which is the album after this one.
