Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the best April 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ignition is a solid album, but isn't quite as good as their self-titled debut. Ignition, while it really isn't a punk album, is still a pretty good CD, but I recommend picking up their self-titled CD as well if your looking for the Offspring at their best. Smash and Ixnay are pretty good also, but stay away from anything after that(...)

5.0 out of 5 stars classic punk Feb. 23 2004
By Sam
Format:Audio CD
I've been an Offspring fan for several years, but I just recently purchased this album. I had hesitated to buy it at first, because a friend of mine, also an Offspring fan, had told me it wasn't very good. I downloaded the song "Session" and liked it, so I bought the album. Boy was I surprised. The music was excellent. It reminded me of the classic sounds that had made Smash such a hit. If you like classic, hardcore punk, this is the album for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars i dunno... Feb. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yes, I am one of those people who isn't a high minded punk purist. I am a bigger fan of the sound the offspring attained on their major label releases (except for "ixnay on the hombre") as opposed to their earlier stuff. This album just doesn't pack the musical puch that their more recent albums have. The sound isn't quite as original, the riffs are fairly generic and the songs just all sound the same. Still a good album, but doesn't compare to their other releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars album of the 90's Feb. 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ignition, the second of 7 offspring albums, was most likely the greatest album of it's decade. starting off strong with session and building up to finish with the best song on the album forever and a day.
session is probably a top 20 song of all time, but it was the worst on the album.
needless to say, 12 of my top 20 are from ignition

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars totally different, better offspring Dec 13 2003
By Blue
Format:Audio CD
1. Session - 10/10
2. We Are One 10/10 (would be the best song, except for an exception.. read on)
3. Kick Him When He's Down 9/10 great song, but i feel theres not enough energy in the chorus vocals
4. Take It Like a Man 9/10
5. Get It Right 9/10
6. Dirty Magic 6/10 (weird, tired vocals..)
7. Hypodermic 8/10
8. Burn It Up 9/10
9. No Hero 10/10 (fav song..) when a friend of mine committed suicide, i couldnt stop listening to this song.. even now, anytime i listen to this cd, i listen to this song. its.. great.. in fact, i think I'll listen to it after writing this..
10. Lapd 10/10 really, really catchy.. also fun to play on guitar
11. Nothing from Something 9/10 it seems not many people like this song, but its still great, and has good meaning
12. Forever and a Day 8/10 sort of mediocore..

4.0 out of 5 stars The essence of punk is all here! Dec 12 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!~
