1. Bad writing, too much track by track and most of the review is focused on "Feeling This" alone.

2. The ratings are absurd. 9 for musicianship? Tom is one of the worst guitarists in the genre and Mark's bass playing is nothing special. Vocals also should have been bumped lower (for Tom's annoying whiny voice and the fact that they can't sing for shit live).

3. Did we really need to review this album? I'm pretty sure everyone on this site has heard this album before, or know of blink and their reputation.

4. I just really don't like Blink.

In response to what you said:
-You state that you don't like Blink, so you have a bias against them. I like Blink so I have a bias for them, but when I reviewed this, I tried to keep that out of my writing, but some came out in the open. I could give a fuck if people already know about the album, I was just having doing this. Who cares about the voices when they play live? This is a STUDIO album, so that was a failed point against them and I was judging their voices based on the STUDIO album, not live. Lighten the fuck up, I only wanted to do this for fun, so stop taking yourself so seriously and stop trying to degrade other people's fun.
It's your own fault if you can't handle criticism. The ratings are ridiculous and your writing is nothing special. Obviously you should take off points for them not having good voices because that's what that rating is for. The only reason they sound this way on the album is because of pitch correction technology. And the only talented member of the band is Travis Barker, so a 9 for musicianship is...well....it's wrong. More like a 5 or a 6, which is still a little high.

Your bias definitely affected your review and it could use some editing.

I can handle criticism, but what you said isn't criticism, it's a bias against them. You didn't really state anyting with thought. I could care less about what you think because you won't change my opinion of them or any of their albums, as you won't care about mine. Plus, I said that some of my bias affected the review of the album, so thanks for stating what has been already said.
Whatever. Just saying, you should read the other comments telling you a 90% is absurd for this album. That should tell you something.

And you can write these reviews for fun without sacrificing quality.
