lack in innovation, they make up with sheer energy. The group rushes through Let's Go
with an invigorating recklessness, sounding like a less-serious, party-ready version of the Clash
. It's almost impossible to understand what vocalist Tim Armstrong
sings at any given moment, yet there is no great meaning in what Rancid
say -- the message is in the buzzing guitars and speeding rhythms. It doesn't hurt that the band can throw out the occasional memorable hook or melody, like the single "Salvation," as well.
