Every generation of high schoolers needs a band to express the angst and agony specific to 14-to-18-year-olds. At present, that band is the Offspring. Their songs are aimed squarely at a younger crowd, from "The Meaning of Life" to "Leave It Behind" to "I Choose," and especially "All I Want" and "Change the World". Their occasionally insightful lyrics are anything but obscure, which is actually refreshing; there's real pain behind "Gone Away," and "Way Down the Line" taps into the common fear among the younger crowd of turning out just like our parents. Musically, the Offspring are hardly complex, but then complexity isn't a requirement. This is music to play at full volume, bang your head to, and annoy your neighbors. Cool. -- Genevieve Williams

Disclaimer (3/5)-This is usual for an Offspring intro and I sorta agree with what he says about "if it offends you then don't listen to it". It sets up the next song very nicely
The Meaning Of Life (5/5)-One of my favorite songs with a really good beat and a nice message about following your own path and not someone else's.
Mota (4.5/5)-I actually really like this song. It opens nicely with a drum solo. The song is very catchy and it's about smoking "mota" and being a pothead and throwing your life away.
Me And My Old Lady (4/5)-A comedic song talking about his girlfriend. Kind of reminds me of "Why Don't You Get A Job" from Americana except much heavier. About how his "old lady" give him grief all the time. I like the bass line at the beginning
Cool To Hate (3/5)-I used to LOVE this song but now it's kinda old. It's about being outcast and hating everyone at school. A very fast upbeat song. Nice chorus
Leave It Behind (3.8/5)-Kind of a filler song but I still really like it. I can kind of just lay back and listen to this song. Pretty cool.
Gone Away (3.5/5)-This is where the album kinda slows down. The song is very emotional. I can hear the emotion in the song. It's about the world being gone away.
I Choose (4.5/5)-This song is great. I love it. Very catchy.Read more ›

1.) "Gone Away" (right on par with "Dirty Magic" in terms of beauty)
3.) "All I Want"
4.) "Change the World" (the drum beat was taken from their own tribal-sounding song "The Blurb" from 1990 and used here!)

through the years, the offspring have tried a number of sounds. smash was their angerier album, americana was the upbeat album and splinter was their rock/pop album. Read morePublished on April 2 2004 by Maekail Bawkher
This is a great Offspring album. It is most definitely a worthy follow up to Smash. It is not as punk sounding as their earlier efforts. Read morePublished on Feb. 3 2004 by Amazon Customer
