i don't know what people expected out of 'Neighborhoods', it sounds just like it should've. a little more 'Tom' heavy at times, but I'm sure the follow up will be more of a collaborative effort now that they're all used to writing with each other.

Maybe this time they'll actually write bridges for the songs instead of every song having an instrumental for a bridge. That was the only flaw I saw in Neighborhoods. Made me think it was lazy songwriting.

I am glad Mark is at least getting some ideas together. Given the other projects Tom and Travis are involved with, I don't expect anything new for a while. In a perfect world I would have the Transplants record and AVA stuff get completed quickly so Blink can get a head start on the new record. My reasoning is that the band got in a grove of sorts towards the end of Neighborhoods as most of the better songs came later in the process. I want to keep tapping into that.

Wasn't a fan of Neighborhoods. Hopefully the new stuff will be better.

After I came to the same realization, I went and listened to some older Blink and noticed that they actually do that in a lot of their songs.

I personally think Neighborhoods is their best record yet.
Agreed. Don't know where all the hate is coming from

AKA Mark is jamming on his guitar, which every musician does, haha. Not that I'm mad - I'm stoked for more Blink!

Not stoked. Neighborhoods was so disappointing.

They'll love it in three years. Remember the backlash against their last three albums at release time?

Glad to see Mark is the one writing... That's the one thing Neighborhoods lacked. I did some calculating and found that the first 4 albums were 50/50 Mark/Tom, but the last two have been like 35/65.
