Performer Notes
  • Considering that Rancid's seventh studio album was largely written on acoustic guitars at new drummer Brandon Steineckert's small town Utah-based recording facility, one might guess that the band had mellowed. Not so: LET THE DOMINOES FALL is a particularly spirited set of the kind of anthemic old-school punk rock the band does best. The first single, "Last One To Die," sounds like the Pogues and the Clash in a drunken brawl at a Who concert, while other tracks recall the group's ska-punk roots in Operation Ivy. Produced by Bad Religion/Epitaph Records founder Brett Gurewirtz the record features Rancid's trademark mix of uncompromising music and insightful lyrics delivered in lead singer Tim Armstrong's inimitable mush-mouthed vocal style.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.72) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] Rancid album par excellence -- a cannonball blast of punk classicism, alternating between galloping double-time punk pogos and the soulful swing that co-frontman Tim Armstrong and Lars Frederiksen learned from the Clash."

Spin (p.97) - "The sunny brutalism of Rancid's East Bay ska-thrash has lost nary a step and their ethical-emotional rigor is as sweet as it is pure."

Alternative Press (p.121) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The 19 tracks on LET THE DOMINOES FALL range in length from 64 seconds to a whopping four-plus minutes, encompassing everything from circle-pit scenarios, brisk bluebeat workouts and heart-on-sleeve introspection."

Billboard - "Over hard-charging rock, swinging ska-punk or just acoustic guitars and mandolins, Tim Armstrong and Lars Frederiksen deliver another round of catchy choruses..."
