Product Description

Product Description

The predecessor to "Smash", "Ignition" has sold 625K to date. Here it is re-mastered, with every metallic power chord and sing-along chorus the way it sounded in the studio. Contains digital download card for entire album.


It seems like the terms catchy and punk shouldn't go together, but for the Offspring, they do. Listening to Ignition, one gets the sense of rage tightly controlled, powering the band's uptempo, driving material. While their sensibility is firmly punk, the Offspring have clearly borrowed from heavy metal for their chord progressions and guitar sound--check out the solos on "Nothing from Something" and "Forever and a Day." While this album didn't have the major-label success of its follow-up, Smash, all the ingredients that made that record a hit are here, if not quite as refined: angry, incisive lyrics; fast-driving rhythms; and--dare one say it--melodic chord progressions. It's easy to hear why Ignition was an underground hit and why the Offspring's later records, while somewhat diluted, have been so successful. --Genevieve Williams

The title says it all, this cd is truly amazing. This has to be the best Offspring album right under Smash if not tied with it. 90% of the songs are song fast and have tons of energy its insane. It just makes hyper and puts you in a good mood. My favorite song has to be Kick Him When he's Down. LAPD and Session are also equally good along with almost all the other songs on the album. This album shows Offspring when they were making music as a passion as oppossed to now since they kind of have gone trendy. Although I their albums as much after SMASH they are still decent. I can't even count the number of times I have listened to SMASH and Ignition but they are both amazing punk albums. You will not be dissapointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best punk CD ever Feb. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
This could be the best Offspring CD, but I like them all. Event ho they had a CD before this I consider this their first realCD because this is when they started their signature sound. All the tracks are awesome and very catchy, many are very emotional too. Standout tracks: Dirty Magic, No hero, Get It Right, and Nothing From Something
Dirty Magic hs got to be one of the best songs ever, its so great!

4.0 out of 5 stars The essence of punk is all here! Dec 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
~This record is a typical example of Offspring's older stuff, it's also their major label debut. The Offspring truly demonstrates "Orange County Punk Rock" here, notice how different they sound back then? The vocals even had a weird accent but still had a whiney voice back then.
Standout tracks on this cd include "Hypodermic" "No Hero" and "Nothing From Something", basically all the songs are good but they sound too similar, that's what is preventing me from giving this record 5~~ stars. The overall sound in each song may not be as polished as the more recent albums, but their work can only get better with experience and time. Listen to samples from "Americana" "Conspiracy Of One" and "Splinter"(newest), all are recent albums from Offspring, then you'll know how big a difference there is, the difference is so big that it's like two separated worlds they've been in.
In my opinion, i like both worlds, meaning i liked their older music and their newer music.~~ This is an album truly not to be missed, get it!~

Anyone out there in need of something melodic in key and abrasive in production needs to check Ignition out. I don't think I'm the typical audience for this, but it's so hook-laden that it just begs for a spin at least once (on vinyl, of course). Ignition is every bit as good as The Offspring's follow-up, Smash, but this album has much more of an identity. The only point the album starts to lag is when the songs become too repetitive (Take It Like a Man and Get It Right), or when they start telling stories from a caricature's point of view (from everyday power-abusing cop in "LAPD" to the stereotypical firebug in "Burn It Up"). All the songs on here are listenable, with obvious standouts ("Kick Him When He's Down", "Dirty Magik", and "Forever and a Day"). Then there are the rest of the in-betweeners. If you want sound advice on which Offspring albums to get your paws on, I'd say it'd be best to just buy Ignition and Smash. Their 1989 debut is pure rubbish (Nitro on the web allows an entire listen), and everything post-Smash is too superficial and ho-hum. And if you're one of the millions who own Crazy Taxi, you already have the whole Ixnay album right there anyway.
Good day!

5.0 out of 5 stars This makes "Americana" look like a joke! March 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is really a great album. You can tell it is less "polished" than future offspring albums, but that doesn't really matter. The point is, it is a great album, despite the fact the drums sound weird, and that it sounds very ameteur. It's still great.
Session: 10/10
One of my favorite songs, though the profanity in the beginning is kind of hard on the ears.
We are one!: 10/10
It has some of the best guitar riffs they've written. Some of the best lyrics they've written. Why CAN'T it be one of the best songs on the album?
Kick him when he's down: 10/10
When I first bought the album, this is the first song out of 12 that attracted me to it; the first song I listened to.
Take it like a man: 8/10
A pretty cool song, but it gets boring after a while.
Get it right: 7/10
Don't really care for this one. It's just not catchy enough for my tastes.
Dirty Magic: 10/10
Easily another favorite of mine on the album. Even if it is slow, it is still catchy and chilling.
Hypodermic: 10/10
A great song that grows on you every time you hear it.
Burn it up: 9/10
A pretty funny song. Nicely written!
No Hero: 9/10
A great punk riff, and more great punk singing.
L.A.P.D: 10/10
My personal favorite off the album. Why doesn't more people like this? If you like the song "Mota" off "Ixnay", you will definately like this song.
Nothin From Somethin: 7/10
Don't really remember this one. What does that tell you?
Forever and a day: 9/10
An O.K. song, but it just doesn't have that same feel all the other songs have.
Anyway, this is a great album. I remember when I first got this I thought I dreamed it, just because it was so different from all the other albums I had at the time from them. This just goes to show you that it is very different from any other offspring album.
