blink 182 spin-off thread

i saw the blink thread in lemonade stand, and while i was baffled by its poetic beauty, i thought maybe i'd start a blink thread in these parts.

i was just wondering if anyone had picked up their latest self-titled album? i think it's wonderful. i like a lot of blink's stuff, granted i don't take them to be musical geniuses or anything, but it's catchy nonetheless. anyway, i think that the latest album is a huge step forward for these guys in both maturity and artistry. i wasn't very impressed with it upon first listen, but it has really grown on me. stand out tracks for me include - violence, asthenia, and i'm lost without you.

please keep your omg stfu ur so ghey loser comments to yourself if you couldn't care less about this. :

everything before their last album sucked.

the three singles i heard from the last one however, were quite decent. by that i mean, if i hear it on the radio, i won't necessarily turn it away, but i also won't spend time downloading them either.

i like the ending of it, it's surprisingly different for a blink song.

it transitions nicely into an interesting interlude on the album.

I like it. They get a bit too much flack. They're not amazing by any means. But the harmonies in "I'm Feeling This," especially at the end, are gorgeous

I adore their latest album... I never really liked Blink until I bought it. I agree that Down was an odd choice for a single... shoulda picked Stockholm Syndrome. That song is brilliant and by far the best on the album. Punk at its best.

i liked 'feeling this'. i heard the rest of the album and found that song was a fluke.

The Robert Smith track is not that bad. Doesn't sound much like Blink at all, to be honest

i'm surprised by this. i think it's the most "blink 182-ish" song on the album, and that probably explains the choice for it being the first single...but i don't think it is nearly the strongest song on the album. i suggest you give it a few more listens.

yes, the track with robert smith is quite good. not blink 182-ish at all.
