CD MCA Records, MCD 11624, 1997, 15 Track
Terrific sales of their independent Cheshire Cat got Blink-182 signed to a major label (MCA) for 1997's Dude Ranch, which led to US radio hits ("Dammit" and "Josie") and platinum sales. No "sell-out" on the band's part, though, as Dude Ranch simply features another infectious collection of snotty vocals, punchy rhythms, vivid lyrics, and aggressive chords. San Diego producer Mark Trombino shines some of the scuffed edges, but this is still good ol' Blink at its sunny, effervescent best. Nice "emocore" spoof here ("Emo"), plus an odd knack for crafting bass-lines that recall--seriously!--New Order, and vocal harmonies that owe debts to the Beach Boys. --Mark Woodlief

They are an easy target for hate, it's pop music for the MTV generation, but you know what? They we're a solid band. To compare Blink 182 with a band like "Simple Plan", is an insult. I won't disagree that they evolved, or "devolved" to Pop-Rock and bought into the radio play. However, from listening to this, the ROOTS of Blink 182, before the transformation... It's just a taste of nostalgia, something that you can listen too and listen front to back and it will feel like five minutes have passed. This band spawned thousands of copycats... and for good reason.
You could call it biased for me to say my teenager generation's "Raw Cool Music" is better than this generations "Raw Cool Music", but it's absolute fact. These band's are cheap spawns of Blink, Blink had an edge, great writing, and the trio was just... a touch of brilliance, and no, I don't use the word that often.
It's a shame they ended up breaking up, but as the late great George Harrison said: "All Things Must Pass".
