Rancid Trouble Maker: ImpOp Album Review

Three years after their last album, punk revivalists Rancid are back with their new album Trouble Maker. The effort is 19 songs based around the sound that the Berkeley tribe made famous. Sure, there isn't a lot of innovation or experimentation on this album, but is that really what you want from this band? No! We want rocking punk music with heart, an ear to the streets, and danceable riffs. It's a much better effort than 2014's Honor Is All We Know which just didn't seem to have the passion of their past work. Rancid has only made one bad album in 26 years (hello there Life Won't Wait) which is simply amazing and awe inspiring! This album, is a must buy and the best punk album of 2017 (so far)!

ImpOp's 3 Favorite Tracks

"Bovver Rock & Roll" A classic, classic rock n' roll track.

"Where I'm Going" This is the stutter beat pogo dance song that is a breakaway hit.

"This Is Not The End" Rock hard and never die! The boys shall return!

Rancid Trouble Maker B
Total Tracks 19
Tracks Saved 18
Time 39 minutes

This is Rancid's best album in 8 years as the squad has returned to form and they are currently on tour with Dropkick Murphys!
