Say what you will about Rancid's Tim Armstrong…no go ahead and say it, you are probably right…but the man isn't afraid to take musical risks. Sure, he put out a record with Skinhead Rob and rapped about how some of his friends sold records and some sold drugs, but he also helped Jimmy Cliff put out his best record in about 20 years. That's why when Armstrong announced the release of his musical, Tim Timebomb's RockNRoll Theater it might have sounded silly (particularly in the aftermath of American Idiot) but it was artistically ballsy as well. To Armstrong's credit, it mostly worked. Likewise, Armstrong's second solo album, Tim Timebomb Sings Songs from RocknNRoll Theater finds Armstrong covering the tunes he wrote for the musical and taking musical risks that are more successful than not.
