  • Dude, I Have Waggy Dick Lips. Is That Normal?!

    Jul 23, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The raw, unmanufactured production
    Cons: Some vocals/lyrics; Some songs are forgettable (or sound too similar)

    Summary: Like so many other teens my age, I had never even heard of the pop-punk sensation known as Blink 182 until I had the pleasant (note the sarcasm) opportunity to watch three guys run around Los Angeles nude, in the ”What’s My Age Again?” ... read more

  • Simple Yet Quite Good

    Mar 2, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mark's harmonized vocals, Tom's guitar tone, "Waggy"
    Cons: Not exactly what you would call talented, Tom's Voice

    Summary: Dude Ranch was blink-182’s second true album, released 3 years after their debut Cheshire Cat. In those three years, the band gained a lot of touring experience in the punk community, and had their fair share of hazing from veterans of the scene. ... read more

  • Their Best CD before Travis Barker took over the drums

    Jul 17, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good lyrics and gutair riffs
    Cons: terrible drummer but still good for what he was playin

    Summary: From the start, you're shocked into hearing one of the best and loudest thrashing guitar riffs that came out of the 1990's - and you're led into the most passionate delivery of drumming and vocals ever put on a CD. Listen to the chorus when the guitar ... read more

  • Dude Ranch = The Good Ranch

    Sep 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Original lyrics, faster paced - it's their best album
    Cons: Apple Shampoo IS poo

    Summary: This is the greatest Blink 182 album ever... fact. When 14 out of 15 songs on the album score over 7 out of 10 in my book - this album is one of the few albums around that deserves that title "All Killer, No Filler." From the start, you're shocked into ... read more

  • Dude, Blink 182 gets no better than this!

    Jan 7, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, upbeat, and generally competent
    Cons: The band throws a few real bombs

    Summary: "The big bucks are in dick and fart jokes." ~Ben Affleck, Chasing Amy Truer words were never spoken. Need a case in point? Blink 182 is pretty much all the example that needs to be given. Taking immaturity to new heights with ... read more

  • Blink 182's Dude Ranch - One Of The Best!

    Oct 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: “Cheshire Cat’s” defiance with a wider variety of song structures, hooks, tunes and jokes.
    Cons: Their crude humor that should of been left out.

    Summary: Although “Dude Ranch” is not one of Blink 182’s newest CDs, it is one of their best. Blink 182’s 1995 debut CD “Cheshire Cat” was a fun but single-minded adventure through suburban punk rock. While one can not deny how immature the record was, Blink 182 ... read more

  • Dude Ranch - The Fruit of Blink-182's work

    Jul 27, 2003 by

    Pros: A few great tracks, Blink at their best
    Cons: A little less than half the CD was average Blink noise

    Summary: Backround ------------------ First off, I'd like to say that I have been a quiet fan ... read more

    Pros: awesome cd, better than any of their newer stuff
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought Dude Ranch when it came out, and it has been my favorite Cd ever since. It saddens me to hear kids cheering for Blink-182 that have never heard it before. The lyrics are meaningful and true to life, like in Dammit and Apple Shampoo, ... read more

    Pros: Great mix of awesome songs, intelligent lyrics
    Cons: none really

    Summary: This is my favorite Blink album of all time because it’s just so friendly and it handles like a dream. The songs are of the highest caliber with amazing lyrics and a quantity of quality that would make The Offspring proud. This is the best Blink ... read more

  • Blink 182 corrals a new fan base with "Dude Ranch"

    Apr 16, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Still great punk though transitioning from "Cheshire Cat" to "Enema..."
    Cons: Sounds too much like the latter than the former. Audio jokes get old

    Summary: Like the title says, Blink 182 got more "punk rock fans" with their sophmore album. The fact that this one had multiple singles that had videos released, and the songs were found on soundtracks to major motion pictures got Blink 182 on the music ... read more

    Pros: Mark and Tom do songs together!
    Cons: Some of the songs sound a bit the same.

    Summary: Man oh man! This is an amazing CD from my favorite band! I see all these retards who like blink-182 for Enema, but this is where it starts! I will rate each song out of 5. 5 being the best, 1 the worst. 1. PATHETIC (4.5) What ... read more

    Pros: great lyrics, blink 182's best album
    Cons: ZERO

    Summary: I'm not really good at summarizing a CD as a whole so i will go one song at a time: 1-Pathetic-The opening song i think does a great job for setting the tone for this great album. Grade: A- 2-Voyeur- Has a good beat and good lyrics but ... read more

    Jul 17, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A brilliant album nothing really wrong with it
    Cons: This was Scott's last album before the other 2 kicked him out.

    Summary: This album boasts exellent quality. Everything seems right. But still to this day I am left wondering; what happened to this Blink 182. Blink 182 have gone against the world. Simple as that. They decided to become more commercial and have now ... read more

    Jan 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: very good, written songs
    Cons: 2 songs that are stupid and tom sings like a girl

    Summary: I would have to say that Dude Ranch is the best album that Blink 182 has out yet. I was 14-15 when I first bought the album and I loved every second that I listened to it. I've had the album since 1997 and I still pop it in and listen to it. The songs ... read more

    Pros: Fast good songs. Catchy lyrics, great chord forms.
    Cons: a little emo-ish

    Summary: This is probably one of my favorite blink 182 cds. It has 14 songs of pure enjoyment. Its a lot better than the newer cd's. Mostly everybodies favorite song is either "dammit" or "josie" but mine was probably "untitled". It also has some humorous things ... read more

    Pros: Great lyrics, guitar playing, and humor. What blink is all about
    Cons: Some songs COULD sound the same

    Summary: After listening to enema of the State, my friend told me about Dude Ranch and said it was a pretty good CD. A couple days later, I went down and picked it up. I popped in the CD and it kicked butt! I loved the great punk sound and awesome songs. It had ... read more

    Cons: nothing

    Summary: About Dude Ranch Dude Ranch is Blink 182's second album and has many great songs on it. This C.D. was made before Travis joined the group as the drummer so Scott Raynor does all of the percussion. Mark Hoppus is on Bass, and Tom DeLonge ... read more

    Pros: great songs, pre-commercial (in the UK at least)
    Cons: none

    Summary: Having become a big band in the UK in 1999 with the release of Enema of the State, Blink 182’s previous releases probably get overlooked by a lot of people, who have just heard their latest release. The release before Enema of the State, which was ... read more

    Pros: everything, especially the song Dammit.
    Cons: doesn't have any

    Summary: After Cheshire Cat, I expected something a little different. The first song on the cd was pretty much the same as the last cd, but everything after that was great. Voyeur is one of the funniest and best songs ever. Then when I heard Dammit, I was ... read more
