Product Description

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.

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

The title says it all, this cd is truly amazing. This has to be the best Offspring album right under Smash if not tied with it. 90% of the songs are song fast and have tons of energy its insane. It just makes hyper and puts you in a good mood. My favorite song has to be Kick Him When he's Down. LAPD and Session are also equally good along with almost all the other songs on the album. This album shows Offspring when they were making music as a passion as oppossed to now since they kind of have gone trendy. Although I their albums as much after SMASH they are still decent. I can't even count the number of times I have listened to SMASH and Ignition but they are both amazing punk albums. You will not be dissapointed!!

This is really a great album. You can tell it is less "polished" than future offspring albums, but that doesn't really matter. The point is, it is a great album, despite the fact the drums sound weird, and that it sounds very ameteur. It's still great.
Session: 10/10
One of my favorite songs, though the profanity in the beginning is kind of hard on the ears.
We are one!: 10/10
It has some of the best guitar riffs they've written. Some of the best lyrics they've written. Why CAN'T it be one of the best songs on the album?
Kick him when he's down: 10/10
When I first bought the album, this is the first song out of 12 that attracted me to it; the first song I listened to.
Take it like a man: 8/10
A pretty cool song, but it gets boring after a while.
Get it right: 7/10
Don't really care for this one. It's just not catchy enough for my tastes.
Dirty Magic: 10/10
Easily another favorite of mine on the album. Even if it is slow, it is still catchy and chilling.
Hypodermic: 10/10
A great song that grows on you every time you hear it.
Burn it up: 9/10
A pretty funny song. Nicely written!
No Hero: 9/10
A great punk riff, and more great punk singing.
L.A.P.D: 10/10
My personal favorite off the album. Why doesn't more people like this? If you like the song "Mota" off "Ixnay", you will definately like this song.
Nothin From Somethin: 7/10
Don't really remember this one. What does that tell you?
Forever and a day: 9/10
An O.K. song, but it just doesn't have that same feel all the other songs have.
Anyway, this is a great album. I remember when I first got this I thought I dreamed it, just because it was so different from all the other albums I had at the time from them. This just goes to show you that it is very different from any other offspring album.

I dont really like most of the self titled CD so for me, Ignition is where it all started. This is there first really good CD though i personally prefer Ixnay on the Hombray and Smash. Here's a breakdown of the tracks
-Session 9/10. Good song. Some of the guitar lines are quite good and in general the song maintains a strong force to it.
-We are One 8/10. I like the intro guitar part alot but i think the bulk of the song is just shy of spectacular. Its still a good song though and i think the complete stop after the word "stop" is a nice touch.
-Kick Him while he's Down 9/10. A good song though i dislike that the lyrics are almost inaudible.
-Take it like a man 8/10. Another good one.
-Get it Right 6/10. Its a decent song but it just lacks energy.
-Dirty Magic 8/10. Slower song, with sad sounding melodies and lytics. Overall a good song.
-Hypodermic 10/10. My favorite song on the CD, especially right at the great guitar part at the beginning. An energetic and fastpaced song.
-Burn it Up 9/10. A song for the pyro in each of us, Burn it up is about torching cars and hurling molotovs. A good song.
-No Hero 8/10. A well constructed bass line forms the melody of this song. Not a superb song but still rather good.
-LAPD 6/10. Im not a big fan of this song. I like the slow buildup in the begining and the general oppressiveness of the song but passed that the song is a bit lacking.
-Nothing from Something 7/10. Good but not great, this song is about prepping to lash out at others.
-Forever and a Day 8/10. It has some nice bass playing and is in general a good song.
In summary, I think Ignition is a good CD but i think their next two, Smash and Ixnay, are better. Ignition is better than the two most recent Offspring albums, Americana and Conspiracy of One.

Ignition is awesome and possibly the best offspring album ever made. Here is each song on a scale of 1 to 10
Session - 10/10 Session is a great start for the album and it's chorus is really cool and fast.
We Are One - 8/10 This is a very cool song but it is not one of my favorites.
Kick Him When He's Down - 10/10 I don't really know why this song is so cool i think its the verses but at first i disliked this song and now it is one of my favorite's on the album.
Take It Like A Man - 7/10 this is a song worth a listen but it isnt do good
Get it right - 6/10 this song is NOT CATCHY and i do not really like it too much, you can try it out but it just wasnt so good to me.
Dirty Magic - 7/10 again not a great song but worth a listen.
Hypodermic - 10/10 this is a really good song with an excellent chorus and the first verse is really cool too.
Burn It Up - 10/10 Another cool song about being a pyro maniac and lighting crap on fire. I just like the point and it has good vocals.
No Hero - 7/10 I don't really pay attention to this song because i dont think its so cool
L A P D - 8/10 i used to like this song the best and it is still good but as i have gotten older I have grown to like it less.
Nothing From Something - 7/10 I don't really konw... sorry
Forever And A Day - 8/10 this song is a good one.. at least listen to it a bit before deciding you dont like it.
