Haven't heard the album yet. Other than Up All Night and Heart's All Gone.
I just love that they're making new music. Glad to hear that it's good though.

Yeah i know its track 5, but its a deluxe track. its kinda weird that they did that. look on the iTunes pre orders. its not on the regular album. The regular dosnt have Snake Charmer and ends with Love Is Dangerous
Yes I corrected myself a few posts above. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

No one should order the "normal" version - the 14-track sequence is WAYYYYY more impressive.

i know its been talked about forever now but, was there ever anything said about why they infact did split. like did either of them come out and said this is what happened. or has it been said to be 'tough times and family matter'

Does anybody know the significance of the date 4.18.2011...is it just the day Mark wrote that song? Sounds like a demo name.

Love the review, very fitting for the record. I love the record and am so happy to have the band that's been the soundtrack to my life the last nineteen years continuing to provide me with great music.

I think it's the date that the Blink tour of Europe was cancelled.

I want to like this album, there's nothing that I find necessarily wrong with it, however it doesn't come close to having the resonance that the self titled did for me.
I hands down agree with this. I Miss You, Violence, Stockholm Syndrome, and Down may be the best stretch of songs ever. I don't HATE This album, but it's not their self titled album.

Totally didn't realize the last four were the bonus tracks, only thought it was the last two. How did MH 4.18.11 and Love Is Dangerous not end up on the regular version? They are the perfect closers.

Agreed. Was blasting self titled on the drive home today for an hour and that album is a perfect mix of catchiness and the 'darker' side of their music, plus the lyrics are miles better.

Good review. I was worried about this album, seeing how I wasn't that into After Midnight and Up All Night, but every track is incredibly solid. Agree with the score.

They are on the regular version, check the link on the last page that goes to the itunes preorder page. The four bonus tracks are actually Snake Charmer, Heart's All Gone Interlude, Fighting the Gravity, and Even If She Falls, even though a couple of these tracks are interspersed in the middle of the deluxe sequencing rather than tacked on to the end like you're imagining.

Self titled was the best... till this album came out.
