OK. I have just gotta get something off my chest. I don't post heaps and heaps of messages, i usually just read. But something is really getting on my nerves. Some people are just absolutely obsessed with 'selling out'!!! Blink 182, Chili Peppers, all those bands who may have changed their sound slightly have NOT SOLD OUT!!! As a fan of the two mentioned bands, i know that these guys are not worried about album sales or making money, they just want to make music that they love. Just get over the 'sold out' thing and think of something that's not as lame.
Sorry if i offended anyone but i think many people will agree with what i have said.
I think that blink used to be brilliant. but goin by their last album- i was not impressed, any one alse think that?
the new album is really good it has to be my fav except for TOYPAJ :thumb:
If you notice, travis seems to have calmed down a lot compared to how he used to be. Personally i prefer Scott Raynor to travis barker becaue he fit with the band more, but travis has started to fit with the band more. Tom has basically unslacked off (if you haven't heard the "strings" solo, go check it out on chesire cat or buddha.. classic tom). Mark has become a more diverse player, actually straying *gasp* from simple eigth notes to provide harmonic as well as rhythmic support. I personally can't compare this to their old stuff, but it still is wicked awesome.
I love blink! great album, trade food for the music, anyways i love every song on this album, how can you not?
I like the old Blink. As many of us would say.

what happened to them?
how good can it be? its blink 182
and yes i have heard several songs from it and they are all equally terrible
GREAT album, I agree, Marks voice is better then Toms and he should sing more of the songs. Oh well, Great Album 4/5
i LOVE blink 182 soooo much :D tour in feb guys! get ur asses down there
hm, the new album is so beautiful, but i also love old blink aswell
[QUOTE=lukemac4k]I loved this album!!
Being a drummer i am amazed at some of the things travis comes up with, he's definitely one of the most original drummers of today - not just in technique but in the way he plays, he loves to play very fast beats and drum fills and it fits in perfectly with each song. One of the best songs he's ever put a drum beat to was probably "The Anthem Part 2" which i thought was excellent![/QUOTE]
i agree with you totally. but the best is the second to last fill on the fallen interlude. every time i hear that im just like not possible.
not too shabby...stockholm syndrome is probably one of their best songs ever...and remember kids, you know it's time to quit breast feeding your baby when his mustache keeps tickling you...and stay in school. :thumb:
Im going 2 see these guys at NEC b'ham
thrashfanatic shut up u nooblet
this album sucked
i must say that this album is utter crap.
because it is.
old stuff was great.
new stuff is not.
none of you know anything.
(runs for cover from new-blink fans with knives)
And the flag of elitism has risen...
My God Blink 1-8-2 sucks. Seriously, when your biggest calling card is that you're fun loving and have sexual intercourse with dogs, and then you go serious, you gotta be pissing off your fanbase.
ehh blinks 3rd best album, after Buddha and Dude Ranch
wow i ve never seen someone whose fav bands are blink 182 and led zeppelin. Nothing wrong with it though.
When I heard "Feeling This" on the radio, (or on TV, don't remember which) I loved it. Its a very catchy song, and because I couldn't get it out of my head, I had my friend make a copy of the cd for me. Thank God I didn't buy it! I got to the fourth song and I couldn't listen to it any more, it was so bad. But, ya know, I'll admire Blink for having the balls to try something new. I don't know; maybe I'm just a fan of the older Blink.
