Good god, this is the stuff dreams are made of.
The Offspring: not what they used to be.
The Offspring haven’t been at their rip-roaring best, on CD at least, for quite some time now. It is with frightful ease that one can declare ‘Days Go By’ as a parody of the efforts which came before. Compare the plodding ‘Secrets From The Underground’ with something like ‘Self Esteem’ and it’s as if you’re referencing two different bands. Still a live force to be reckoned with, it’s a shame that one of pop-punk’s true icons can’t cut the mustard on record anymore. “I’m not how I used to be” sings Dexter Holland on ‘Turning Into You.’ You said it, partner.
