Wow! even better than "...And Out Come The Wolves"!

"This is the greatest Rancid CD! its like a mix of Let's Go/Rancid(2000)/Life Wont Wait, and pleanty of new style songs. It tops And Out Come The Wolves because of it diversity and songs that really stand out. If you like any Rancid CD or just like good music buy this CD!! It's my favorite out of a huge collection of punk-rock CDs! 19 songs and almost an hour of awesome music!!! a must buy!1. Indestructible (9/10): Awesome punk title track!2. Fall Back Down (9/10): Poppy? yes. but it grows on you fast! and its a very personal song for Tim.3. Red Hot Moon (9/10): Ska-ish song, reminds me of Time Bomb,
yes the rapper form the tranplants is in it but he doesnt really rap.4. David Courtney (10/10): Maybe my favorite Rancid song ever, a great punk song!5. Start Now (10/10): Kind of poppy chorus like Fall Back Down, but i think its even better I really like it.6. Out Of Control (9/10): Sounds like its straight off Rancid 2000, probably the most hardcore track on this CD, still very catchy and awesome!7. Django (10/10): Another one that could be on Rancid 2000, but even better! this is an awesome hard punk song with a very original sounds to it.8. Arrested In Shanghai (10/10): A slow song, maybe its not for everyone, but I absolutely love this song!9. Travis Bickle (10/10): Also could be off of Rancid 2000, just as good as Django, very fast hard catchy and awesome!10. Memphis (7/10): While it has it's moments (Matt actually has clear backround vocals here) it just doesnt measure up to the other songs.11. Spirit of '87 (8/10): Alot of people love this song and say its the best from this CD, its punk and original, had to grow on me tho.12. Ghost Band (9/10): If you like "Indestructible" you will like this one, it had to grow on me but did-so very fast, its a great punk song!13. Tropical London (9/10): Sounds like something off "Life Wont Wait" probably, but not Reggea, very personal song to Tim about Brody. Catchy and awesome.14. Roadblock (10/10): Sounds like something straight off of "Let's Go!", very awesome punk song.15. Born Frustrated: (10/10): Also sounds straight off of "Let's Go", one of the best on the CD! very catchy and awesome punk!16. Back Up Against the Wall (8/10): This almost deserves a 9, its poppy but its good just not great17. Ivory Coast (9/10): cool punk once again :)!18. Stand Your Ground (10/10): Bascilly a Transplants song w/o the rapper, but its totally awesome, I love it!19. Otherside (10/10): Yes an emotional punk song! very very very awesome and sad, about Lar's late older brother. best "na na na na"'s ive ever heard! The only thing wrong with it is that its too short :'(!19 songs and almost an hour of awesome music!!! a must buy!and Rancid is still Rancid no they have not sold out."

"Okay, let's see where we start...
First, i'd like to address the reviewer that says (s)he purchased then quickly discarded the band's first self-titled album: What the hell were you thinking??? The first album was a great album (as all of their work tends to be), furthermore you went on to mention that the second self-titled album was one of their best, again, what were you thinking??? That was without a shadow-of-a-doubt their worst, most thrown-together c.d. of the entire lot!!!
That said- "Indestructible" is a strong effort by punk's most influential and flexible band. They once again switch back and forth from their raggae roots to fast-paced "head-splitters" more quickly then you can say "The Clash". This album is just further proof that Rancid is punk's most versatile asset, and can appeal to anyone looking to delve into the depths of true punk rock. One of the best features of this disc is that the book not only has lyrics included, but also gives a brief synopsis of what each song is about- a feature that i absolutely love, and would encourage all bands to include, as it gives the listener a bit of a window into the lyricists mindset. If you are interested in Rancid I would suggest that your buy their albums in the following order (keep in mind to listen to each album several times so that you can truly appreciate what each work brings to the table):

1) ...And Out Come the Wolves
2) Let's Go
3) Indestructible (it's listener friendly, but not necessarily the third best album)
4) Life Won't Wait
5) Self-titled (1993 *the gun cover*)
6) Self-titled (2000 *the skull cover*)

no matter what albums you buy or in what order just make sure to appreciate all that Rancid stands for and take it all at face value!!

P.S. Listen to the bass line in just about every Rancid song and try arguing against the fact that Matt Freeman is the best bass player on the planet. Period!"

"First, I love it when all the old punk fans rail at a group for selling out when they steer the least bit from abject screaming and shattering of their guitars. As if a punker can keep playing Anarchy in the UK every day, every year of their life until they drop. Clearly, if you name your group Rancid you have a certain ethic to live up to. Owing to that though, Rancid is without question one of Rock and Roll's most vital groups, regardless of whether they assist Pink, or slow the tempo down a bit and weave reggae and bluesy and even POP sensibilities into a brilliant song.
Indestructible has the band at its finest. Whether people think its a return to the radical mix of influences from their early work, or whether you think its a radical departure from the punk trueness of the 2000 album. What you can't fault Rancid is the body of work it consistently delivers.
Indestructible would be on anyone's top ten list if they would just listen to it. It's filled with unbridled energy, brilliant well-crafted songs, and the unabashed love these guys have for music in all its manifestations has never been more evident."
