First off, if you are buying this album you should know that it is a ska/reggae type of album. You should expect a ska/reggae kind of music style when buying this album.
This album successfully blends elements of punk, ska, and reggae into a fantastic CD. If you are expecting the faster, more hardcore punk music, like Rancid, then don't buy this. Although it isn't as hardcore as other albums it still has fuckin epic songs, such as Black Lung and Corazon De Oro.
I, like many people, was dissapointed when I first heard this album, but I was smart enough to give it a few more shots... and it really grew on me. This is not really an album to surprise you first off, but is more of an album that grows on you the more you listen to it. Rancid is a fantastic band that knows what its doing. They just chose a different approach with this album.
My favorite albums of Rancid's are: Rancid(awesome bass), Indestructible, and Let's Go. I gave this album a 4 out of 5 because it was not one of my favorites, dont get me wrong, this album is worth the money, and if you are into ska/reggae you will really like this album. One of my better albums, no doubt about it.
