About this album

‘Ixnay on the Hombre’ is, simply put, a Pop-Punk classic. It has all the ingredients you look for in a good CD: Memorable songs that you’ll be playing more than once, little to no filler, and listenable content. Thats all you need. This release travels pretty much in the same direction as the band’s previous work…Catchy vocals and buzzsaw guitar has shaped the Offspring’s whole original sound. These qualities are very noticable on ‘Ixnay’, and though they don’t rule over the album, you can’t miss it, not that you’d want to.

So, its ‘97, and seems the band has found themselves in the usual situation you see nowadays: “How can we succesfully follow up a top-seller?” What could they do? Well, actually trying usually works. Good thing Offspring realized that. Thats one of the many great qualities of this album: The songs sound like they took time to write, record, and produce. Meanwhile, this is the Offspring, so sure, the occasional minute-and-a-half vocal bursts can be found, but they’re amazingly catchy. The majority of ‘Ixnay’ is longer and more experimental songs (for this band, at least) that are very fun and interesting to listen to. No matter how many times I listen to ‘Ixnay on the Hombre’, after a song ends I can hardly wait for the next track. Theres another good aspect of this album for you: Its not boring.

The different, ‘experimental’ parts of the album are brilliant. Songs like ‘Meaning of Life’, ‘Gone Away’, and ‘Amazed’ can be included in this category. These tracks bring out the real moodier, epic side of the band; fans do need nostalgia, though.
