How does it compare to the artist's other releases

"Wolf Protection"

This is the bands 3rd album and was released back in 1995, it would always be hard for rancid to follow there second album "lets go" which included the classic punk rock song "salvation" but they have produced one of the best punk albums of the 90s in "and out come the wolves". Throughout there careers Rancid have been plauged with there reputation of being completely un-original and sounding far to similar to there idols "The Clash" this album shows that they have evolved and are capable of writing all forms of music including Ska, reggae and blues which are apparent throughout the album.
There are numerous songs on this almost classic album that stand out as a cut above the rest, the first of these is track 2 "The 11th Hour" where the band have written a very good punk song. Time bomb, track number 4 is a two tone ska punk song that includes a powerfull base line and good vocals. Ruby soho is as close as rancid come to making a love song and its suprisingly good, the band have also included a tribute to the old punk club in the east bay which developed the talents of operation ivy, greenday and the offspring not to mention themselves.
In conclusion this is an extremely good album that any rancid fan will enjoy but is also more accessable to people who like lighter music. The wolves will be forced to leave rancid alone after this stunning album.

    I love this album, but feel the review doen't do it justice. More detail, such as price and availability would be useful. Not to mention more info on the tracks/style of music. Also, it's unfair to say Rancid have EVOLVED into ska/reggae when these were so apparant in the Op Ivy days of Tim and Matt. On the whole, a bit short of details. If you re-write, I will happily re-rate, Vix X
