They’ve been labeled by the press as power-pop, Ameicana, pop-punk, or - depending who you ask - various combinations of those terms. But they all call it rock. The kind that goes well with a beer and a shot in a smoky bar. The kind that you crank in the car while you’re singing along. The kind that you weren’t sure still existed in this age of MTV2 and Myspace.
It’s real, honest, heart-felt mid-western rock.
Could Hate It When You’re Right by The Offramps be the best Replacements album in 20 years? Detroit’s The Offramps have made the successor to the ‘Mats Pleased To Meet Me that All Shook Down wasn’t. The Offramps do an exceptionally good job of capturing the loose, loud roots-pop of Minnesota’s favorite band that no one has ever heard of. [They] have taken the ground work laid by luminaries The Replacements, Cheap Trick, and Joan Jett and done it right - the fertile sound from an era has been recaptured without sounding retro.
