Notes:
Smash is the third studio album by American punk rock band The Offspring. After touring in support of their previous album, Ignition (1992), The Offspring began recording Smash in January 1994 at Track Record in North Hollywood, California. Recording and production were finished a month later, and the album was released on April 8, 1994 on Epitaph Records.

In the United States, Smash has sold over six million copies, and has been certified 6× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Peaking at number four on the US Billboard 200, it has sold over 11 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling independent label album of all time. It was also the first album released on Epitaph Records to obtain gold and platinum status. Smash was The Offspring's introduction into worldwide popularity and critical acclaim, and produced a number of hit singles including "Come Out and Play", "Self Esteem" and "Gotta Get Away". Alongside Bad Religion's Stranger than Fiction, Green Day's Dookie, NOFX's Punk In Drublic and Rancid's ...And Out Come the Wolves, Smash was responsible for bringing punk rock into the mainstream, and helped pave the way for the emerging pop punk scene in the 1990s. As a fan-favorite, the album received generally positive reviews from critics and garnered attention from major labels, including Columbia Records, with whom The Offspring would sign in 1996. Smash is the only release where the band was referred to as "Offspring".

This is actually a good sounding mix! I have the translucent yellow one from Barnes & Noble, and this one is significantly better.

Can anyone comment as to whether this release is the same mix/mastering from the 2008 reissue with the "Digitally Remastered" sticker on it? Perhaps someone could add the matrix runout?

I have this exact record according to the matrix but it was purchased as a special FYE only edition. It sounds pretty good I suppose =) liked the album as a child and its still a pretty good album.

FYE had sold this as an exclusive release, calling it golden rod color, claiming a release date of 04/20/18. When I purchased mine it didn't arrive with any hype stickers or anything, but matrix matches.
