    Split Series

    by Samuel Barker

    BYO was looking for a way to make their 20th anniversary something special, so they got two of the biggest names in punk music to come together to add a 3rd installment to their split series. The two bands are Rancid and NOFX, two of the most notorious name in California punk.

    The unique twist to this album, that makes it completely different from any split (this labels or any) done prior, is that the bands cover each others songs. I know, it sounds a bit hokey, but these bands do a great job of recreating some of the most loved tracks each band has to offer.

    There are some weak moments on the album, Matt Freeman trying to sing "Donít Call Me White" one of them, but overall, these bands come out and rock the other bandís songs without missing a beat...well, Fat Mike canít quite play Freemanís sick ass lines, but he suffices. But in return, Freeman tries to do a bit too much with NOFXís lines. Itís a good trade off and in the end, youíre left with a fun album that adds some life to your favorite old songs.
