Blink's not that bad. They're boring these days, but who have they really betrayed? Everyone old enough to care should have grown out of that sound by now.

The Cult had a good sound with Dreamtime and Live.. Then changed with Electric thanks to Rick Rubin's production then got super butt rock with Sonic Temple.

Yeah, I get that. I'm kinda in the same boat, as well.

I'm 100% serious. Their self-titled is sell-out garbage, their new one is trash. 10 songs from two sell out albums is pretty awful.

Kudos to a band that plays material from GOOD new albums .

I didn't like the self titled album. I did like Neighborhoods though, the new one.

I will also throw blink 182 on the bus though. Pretending like they're still blink 182 without Tom DeLonge.

I love, "I Miss You" but for fucks sake, they're 30+ year old men singing about The Nightmare Before Christmas to sell albums to Hot Topic teenagers.

Sorry, you get no love from me for that.

I loved that album. Songs like Stockholm Syndrome, Violence, Feeling This, ruled. The whole thing had a palpable sense of atmosphere. I never listen to it, but I liked it a lot at the time.

I thought Neighborhoods was exactly the opposite of the immature self titled album where you had grown ass men still acting like they were 20 to feed an audience. Neighborhoods was much more mature, and content-wise seems to be blink-182 being reminiscent of when they were younger. Plus, it's interesting seeing it feature random tidbits like a hardcore breakdown/progressive time change here or there. Really shows how much they've matured as musicians.

The biggest criticism of the album, of course, is that it comes off as an Angels and Airwaves album with Travis Barker on drums.

This isn't one of those holier-than-thou comments at all, but have you listened to their older material?

Oh yeah. Lots of great songs there. I'd be reasonably happy with that setlist though.

Fair enough.

As for the show, I was there. It was awful. Not only because of the lack of older material, but because their attempt to sell out to the Hot Topic crowd clearly worked out. That audience was NOT the median age for what you would expect a band of 40 year olds to draw. Those kids were the worst crowd I'd ever seen at a show, almost died (not exaggerating) trying to get out of the swarm of people moshing (not even at the front of the pit) and they didn't even react, like, at all to the few less well-known singles the band DID play. It was insane.

I kind of feel the same way about AFI that I feel about the Alkaline Trio, although a lesser extent. AFI had more than 1 good album, 1 ok album, and then total garbage before and after those two albums (especially after Crimson, the stuff after was particularly trash). Black Sails and Sing the Sorrow are the only two AFI albums I ever feel compelled to listen to any more. But I don't dislike their earlier stuff nor hate their later stuff as much as I do with the Alkaline Trio.

I loved when DLR went solo and got Steve Vai, Billy Sheehan, and Gregg Bissonette for his band. Once those guys were gone, David Lee Roth sucked.
