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".

this is the best cd by blink, which is obvious. the producer made it a little smoother (know what I mean?) but thats ok... at least on this album. the guitar still sounds awesome, which would be changed for the next disc. it made them sound better in my opinion, but ended up killing them. i got most recent two burned off my friend (cuz i can't get "parental advisory", gimme a break). then i had no idea what real punk was and believed the record companies and MTV when they told me this was punk. but then i got dude ranch, having heard some of the songs on the mark tom and travis show. i was expecting it to be the same sound except better lyrics. i turned on dammit and i think, this sucks, mark is half yelling. but after listening for two weeks i had changed my mind and thought "how the hell did i listen to those last two albums?" in conclusion, blink and other bands like it being out there with the pop/punk is good, cuz it makes people want more. then they go buy this album, which leads eventually to good music like the ramones and NOFX.

Before Dude Ranch blink 182's music was not so good I have to admit even though I love blink 182. Dude Ranch is the album that made them actually awesome. Here is each song rated on a scale of 1 to 10.
Pathetic - 9/10 I didnt really even listen to this song very much before I got their live cd but now i really like it alot... even the unlive version.
Voyeur - 9/10 This is a cool song about how hes sitting outside in a tree watching a girl undress though her window, and her father is gonna come out and shoot him.
Dammit - 10/10 Of course Dammit is a great song, most likely you have heard it.
Boring - 7/10 Boring is a good song but not the best of the bunch.
D*** Lips - 8/10 This is another excellent song about when a kid drank too much alchohol and got kicked out of highschool.
Waggy - 7/10 I don't really care for this song, i don't know why its just not too catchy
Enthused - 8/10 Yes, this is a cool song i just like the tune alot.
Untitled - 9/10 again, their live CD got me to start listening to this more and now I love it.
Apple Shampoo - 9/10 this is another excellent song, i don't really konw why again I like the way it starts alot
Emo - 7/10 Well this song is not catchy either
Josie - 10/10 I bet you know this one... it is great.
A New Hope - 6/10 Ok i think this song is really retarded because is the chorus he is singing princess leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeia.
Degenerate 7/10 Sorry i dont remember this song very much.
Lemmings - 8/10 this starts out pretty cool and has a good beat.
I'm Sorry - 6/10 Yeah its kewl but not so good.

First off this cd is one of blinks best cds, followed by Cheshire Cat and TOYPAJ.
The Songs:
Pathetic- its a very good song, a good song to start off the cd.
Voyeur- one of my favorites on the cd,a pretty funny song too
Dammit- im sure mostly everyone has heard this song, its a great song.If you've just heard it on the radio, the version on the cd is a little different sounding, its better.
Boring- this song is OK, its very short, its about 1min.30sec. or so. Gets boring after a while.
Dick Lips- this song is great, anyone can relate to it, just listen to it once u get it.
Waggy- this song is not one of my favorites, its OK.
Enthused- this song has a great guitar intro, its almost head pounding :).
Untitled- gets a bit boring after a couple of listens, its very catchy, a good song though.
Apple Shampoo- takes a while for the song to get "started" if you know what I mean.An OK song.
Emo- also one of my favorites on the cd, beginning starts out with harmonics, a great intro also,then it gets better.
Josie- youve heard this song and im sure youve seen the video, also another catchy song. A great song.
A New Hope- a song about "Star Wars" and Princess Leiah. An OK song
Degenerate- one of the funniest songs on the cd,chorus is great.
Lemmings- this song isnt one of my favorites, but thats my opinion.
Im Sorry- an OK song, but its worth listening too.
I hope I informed you on this cd,you will enjoy it once you buy it.
