Entertainment 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..."

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.
