Let's hope so because their last one was their worst album, and that's saying a whole fucking lot.

I think most blink fans believe Untitled is the band's best record. I certainly do

Didn't they say that about Neighborhoods? Maybe they can right another 1/2 album of good songs...

Get Jerry finn to to come back to life, lock yourselves in a studio for a few months and let the magic happen.

I really don't think that at all. Dude Ranch, TOYPAJ and Enema are all certainly better than the untitled one. Don't get me wrong...it is decent but not a patch on those 3.

Why do you think that? (Not asking that in a douche-y way at all)
To me, and I think to most, Untitled show's the band's best form of maturation following Box Car Racer, and shows their strongest musical and lyrical output.

Though I think Mark's best lyrics come on +44

High hopes.

joel_one 09/13/12 01:02 PM

since when has the self titled been "untitled"?

also - enema is the best. dude ranch, self titled, tofpaj and neighborhoods are all good too, but enema (for me at least) will always be the best

and whoever said make it sound like BCR - yes! box car racer was great, i'd love to hear more stuff like that with more mark in it

Give me S/T 2 and Ill be happy. Not that I want them to repeat that album I just want something mature and cohesive that represents Blink now with hints of blink then. Neighborhoods wasn't a bad album but I just never really listen to it because it was kinda all over the place and nothing special. The new album has to blow me away to get me to listen to Pop-Punk like that again..

Archael 09/13/12 01:16 PM

Dude Ranch is far better than anything else they've done (except Self-Titled).

The rest of this band's discography is fucking awful. It's a shame that so many new pop punk bands try to imitate them even still today.

suicidalmoose 09/13/12 01:19 PM

well if he said that I suppose the whole equation will be changed

prospekt 09/13/12 01:29 PM

Neighborhoods is the worst album this band has wrote along with Cheshire Cat.

Really? I forget what year that one came out like '04? I def remember the ones before being better. To each their own

I would have to agree with Zack here. I can enjoy listening to anything pre ST for nostalgia sake but none of those songs appeal to me anymore as i'm now an adult.

The ST album is just sublime. I don't think I would like Blink half as much as I do now if it wasn't for that album. I'm excited to see what the future holds for new Blink, I really liked Neighborhoods but I have a slight feeling that this new record will blow that one out the water just because they're so content and focussed.
