You don't have to be a Rancid fan to acknowledge that the band lives and dies by the punk ethic of playing every note like it's going to be its last. You'll find one hundred and ten percent attitude and music that's as honest as you can get on RANCID. This is where it all starts. Without any reminiscing about their former band, Operation Ivy, Matt Freeman (bass) and Tim Armstrong (guitar/vocals) blast through their debut without any hints of ska or blatant Clash plagiarizing. On the contrary, this album rips through 15 tracks of high-energy punk that's accompanied by heavy bass leads and Armstrong's permanently slurred vocals. And to top it all off, the lyrical content deals with urban blight and the lifestyle of being a public nuisance. With this trademark sound, Rancid provide the perfect soundtrack for any car chase that includes massive property damage; is it a wonder MTV wouldn't touch this? Rancid: Tim Armstrong, Lars Frederiksen (vocals, guitar); Matt Freeman (vocals, bass); Brett Reed (drums).

likes it. He has wanted to have it for awhile.
Matt's voice is raspy and incredibly deep, which contrasts with Tim's higher almost lisp. of course, on this CD, Tim's voice is halfway between yelling and singing, and it comes off as more snotty.
The sounds of Rancid's debut are incredible together, and unfortunately, a lot of this sound gets lost after Lars joins the band, and new, more radio friendly Rancid came to be known as the signature Rancid sound. With that said, this CD remains a one of a kind work that was made under circumstances that will likely cause it to be a classic forever. This CD sees Rancid with the perfect balance of intricacy and energy and on songs like "Rats in the Hallway" "Animosity" and "Get Out of My Way" it all comes together and shines. This is a must for Rancid fans, especially the ones that believe that Lars is holding back the band as a whole, and even some people who don't like the newer Rancid might like this, 'cause it's definitely a different band.
