Product Description

Product Description

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

I'm 21, the first Blink album I ever bought was the Greatest Hit's about a year ago. I generally listen to Classic Rock, like the Beatles, The Beach Boys, Van Morrison, The Police, etc. So you could say I kind of threw a curve ball by putting Blink in my CD player. Just recently I decided to pick up Dude Ranch, hearing it was a more "raw" Blink, and something that was closer to their roots. This is absolutely true. It amazes me that we have people coming on here preaching this crap that "They aren't punk." Yes, yes they are. There are varying degrees of "punk", and no, they aren't teenie booper music, or at least, it's not on Dude Ranch.

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".

One of the reviews which gave the cd only 1 star was very strongly opinionated, so i feel that i should do my duty to society and correct the confused, troubled, person who wrote that. You see, Dude Ranch is in fact a great cd and if you would take away your mental block of Blink 182 and their extremely poppy new crap that is definately not punk and listen to just the music on this cd and the cds before this one, you would see that the music actually is really good. just becuz you might not like songs with emotional (or pathetic, however you want to look at it) themes, such as girl problems, the music is still really good, and they havent sold out at all at this point. The guitar riffs in "Enthused" are a lot better than I've heard in most other punk songs. Basically, all I'm saying is that although in some people's opinion the lyrics might suck, the band kicks @$$ at writing music. And while Tom and Mark themselves arent even all that good at guitar/bass, the music they play is great and the vocal harmony in places is great, so no one in their right mind could ever say that the band sucks altogether. and the drummer(s) (especially the new drummer travis) could seriously give Ginger Baker (from Cream for you rock wannabes out there) a run for his money.

Dude Ranch is a cd I bought after buying Enema of the State and had very high expectations. My expectations were met with this great cd that every punk rock fan should own in their collection. LISTING: 1-PATHETIC- A fast punk song with a good chorus. 2-VOYEUR- A somewhat annoying song with Delonge's voice barely coming through the guitar and drums. But none-the-less, it's a pretty good song. 3-DAMMIT- A fast and furious song that's moshable with another great chorus. The most traditional punk song on the cd. 4-BORING- Some really nice guitar solos showcased on this song. 5-DICK LIPS- A slow song that should please. 6-WAGGY- The catchiest guitar and drums intro on the album. Some really nice harmonies in the chorus too. 7-ENTHUSED- A long guitar intro that most punk bands only wish they could have come up with, and then Delonge's voise comes in right in on sync. Hoppus has some nice backup vocals also. 8-UNTITLED- Combines a 50's beat with not a lot of energy until about halfway through the song. 9-APPLE SHAMPOO- A standout song with a nice little melencholy beginning, displaying again, Hoppus's ability to sing on key. 10-EMO- Not surprisingly, an emo song with a good melody, but much energy is missing. 11-JOSIE- This is the song of the record! One of the best punk songs ever! Blistering guitars over crazy lyrics, and then the incredibly catchy chorus comes in, that you only think comes up in dreams. You should buy this cd just for this song! 12-NEW HOPE- Possibly the stupidest songs on the cd about Star Wars. Who cares though, it still holds up with the rest of the album. 13-DEGENERATE- A Green Day type song with an intro similar to Long View. 14-LEMMINGS- A hardcore punk song that doesn't really work. Sort of offsets the other songs. 15-IM SORRY- Emo/punk song that you can slow dance to at the prom. NOTE: Don't miss the bonus joke with the dog. It's hilarious.
