Music in my Veins: …And Out Come The Wolves by Rancid

This in 1995 released album by Rancid is one of my most beloved CDs. It was the first Rancid album I ever bought and there is no better sound for going skateboarding, driving around or well, pretty much anything.

This record has many awesome songs like Ruby Soho which was one of the singles released from Rancid’s third album comes along with a very catchy intro. The first song Maxwell Murder leaves you with the perfect feeling for the rest of the album. Olympia Wa is another amazing song. I really like how little stories are told in almost every song and a wide range of themes and feelings is covered. While She’s Automatic captures the listener with its power, Old Friend has the perfect lyrics. To be honest there is no song on the record which I don’t like at all or skip. Every one of them has a certain charm – be it the text or the music that transmits a heap of energy. It is so versatile there is a track to fit every mood. From missing home to being heartbroken, from misunderstandings in the family to wanting to beat loose. No matter how you feel, there is a song to embrace it.
…And Out Come The Wolves is an album not only every Rancid fan or every punk but also everybody who has a taste for good music should own. It’s one of the best records – if not the best – I own.
