Tim Armstrong

A Poet's Life

(Rancid, Operation Ivy, Transplants)

Hellcat 804912

Released on May 22, 2007

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

A Poet’s Life began as a “thank you” from Tim Armstrong to Rancid fans, bringing his first solo release to the wide world, backed by some of the strongest radio support since the days of “Time Bomb” and “Ruby Soho.” With a killer old-school two-tone groove, helped along by Hellcat labelmates The Aggrolites, A Poet’s Life is loose, punky, infectious, and shamelessly danceable. First single “Into Action” features a mod dance groove, a horn chart Motown would be proud of, and the alluring co-vocals of Skye Sweetnam...With a bonus DVD featuring videos of EVERY song along with Armstrong’s typical fan-friendly pricing, A Poet’s Life, far from being a holdover between Rancid releases, is taking on a life of its own.

I absolutely love this album. It's chill reggae music, not the typical sound that comes from Rancid. This mixes reggae with Tim Armstrongs classic voice. His lyrics are very good. Definitely recommended, if you're in the mood for some awesome reggae.

All I Have really to say about this CD is. Amamzing. Tim is really a great writer, not the way everyone says he is, but he is great. Jesse Michaels is a better "Poet" but Tim makes great music. so definitly get this -Jared

while i haven't watched the dvd/videos yet, since i bought this for my brother, i have listened to the album, and it's awesome. c'mon, with the aggrolites as backing band, you cannot go wrong with these infectious reggae beats and tim does some of his best lyrical and vocal work since 'life won't wait', the first rancid s/t, or operation ivy.

This CD is just simply amazing. Its not like Rancid its more Ska. I was expecting for it to be mediocre because it was just a side project but damn its great. the cd is calm, relaxing and so chill, it would be awsome to just listen to chillin on a summer day. I would recomend this to anybody that likes any kind of music. Just give it a shot. Tim Armstrong is a god among men!

Well it's Tim Armstrong. You know its going to be good if not mediocre. I enjoyed it, although there were some parts I felt were kinda cheesy. Like the use of turntables. Ack!

this cd is so damn irie! i think tim armstrong is just playing what he really wants to play on this album. just like joe strummer did when he was incorporating alot of reggae with the clash in the later years which fucking kicked ass. this album is totally two tone ska and reggae. no punk here but who can pass up ska or reggae with tim armstrong. it totally has a joe strummer vibe

This album is pretty good. It sounds like old ska. I really can't say anything different from what everyone else has already said. Oh yeah, the videos are a nice addition. Their done in the same black & white that is seen on the Give 'Em the Boot dvd.
