After being together for over 20 years, pop punkers The Offspring spew out 2012's lacklustre Days Go By. It's a nice sounding snoozefest that makes me think the band is only still doing this because they don't know how to do anything else. It lacks enthusiasm for the greater part of the record and is neither witty, exciting or even remotely inventive. There's a few sparks of life scattered throughout the album but it's mostly stale and in dire need of a boost. If The Offspring don't try a little harder next time, they're going to become parodies of themselves and sputter out into nothing.
