Rancid’s classic second LP, originally released in 1994, is disarmingly good from start to finish. With roots set firmly in their Berkeley punk rock origins, on Let’s Go Rancid set out with heart, soul and vehemence to reach new heights in their music.
Some of the highlights are “Salvation,” “Radio,” and “Nihilism,” but all the of the songs bristle with the unmatched signature of Tim Armstrong’s intensely evocative writing style.
Recorded in their hometown of Berkeley CA, at legendary
Fantasy Studios and mixed in Los Angeles at Westbeach Recorders, Let’s
Go foreshadows the ground breaking success that would be found on their
next record, And Out Come the Wolves.
