Rancid

Let the Dominoes Fall

(Epitaph)


Everything you need to know about Rancid’s first album in six years can be found on “Last One to Die.” “We got it right/You got it wrong/We’re still around,” Tim Armstrong sings. “We knew from the very first show what it was all about.” Let the Dominoes Fall is the East Bay punk band’s self-congratulatory comeback, in which they repeat themselves, crib the Clash, get self-righteous, and cram 19 songs into 45 minutes. It’s a rousing listen, even if the brutal power-kick isn’t quite there anymore. Still, very few punk bands have aged this well. –Michael Gallucci
