Review: Rancid – Bloodclot (Rock)

This review covers the punk rock track Rancid – Bloodclot.

This track was released in 1998 on the album Life Won’t Wait.

The track starts with a drum kit, lead guitars, and non lyrical vocals. From there, the vocals hit the first verse quickly after. It doesn’t take long before the vocals lead the track into the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental section with some non-lyrical vocals.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. Shortly after, the vocals take the track into the main chorus again. This is capped off with the same instrumental section at first, but a guitar solo takes over shortly after.

The main chorus is repeated before the track drops out. All that’s left is two guitars. The drum kit and vocals return to the track. After that, the lead guitars rejoin the track. The guitars then lead the track out.

One positive in this track are the lead guitars. They give the track a nice fresh sound overall.

Meanwhile, the vocals work pretty well.

While there isn’t much for transitions in some parts, the sections are different enough thanks to the guitars.

My only real complaint is the fact that the track is short. I found that this track is enjoyable, but fleeting thanks to the length of the track overall.

Overall, this is a pretty solid track. It has good vocals and nicely done guitars. The length leaves a fair bit to be desired, but it’s still not a bad track to listen to.
