Maybe this means that they will actually write these songs together? Either that of Mod Life is coming back in a big way :/. I listened to TOYPAJI today, and I really just want the pop punk Blink back. Not the Blink/AVA sonic mash up. DISCLAIMER: I know they aren't 23 anymore. I just want some music with a little more edge.
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
blink 182, mature and lyrical in the same sentence? you must have been born in the early 90's and missed out on what blink once stood for: fun.
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.
Well I guess in all fairness I haven't listened to st all the way through in a few years
"I feel like the best is yet to come, the next album is going to be exciting. For the most part the last album was recorded in different studios, we weren't always in the same room. We made it happen and it was the best it could be at the time with us three. I think in the future it can be crazy."
This quote tells me that they're going to all gather in one studio and pound out another epic record :)
I really hope so!
If they can manage to hit the studio for six months, all in one room - they can make an amazing record.
I'd never pretend that Mark or Tom are the best musicians/vocalists in the world but they write GREAT songs. Colour me excited!
I believe him. You cant expect a band to reform and write a masterpiece. You need that one "getting back into it" project.
That said I really enjoy Neighbourhoods. I bought it on release day and at first i thought it was boring and just very mediocre bar 'Up All Night' and 'Wishing Well'. Then when I saw them play material from it live i understood the record sooo much more. I went back to it and I think with time anybody that enjoyed Blink's self-titled will grow to enjoy Neighbourhoods.
POP DISASTER 2.0 WOULD LITERALLY MAKE ME JIZZ.
I heard on that tour Blink were secretly getting fed up with Green Day (a band whose light had dimmed at the time) pretty much upstaging them the whole tour. I wonder what it'd be like this time. Still having seen them live it must take real guts to go up against Green Day in the live arena. Even read an interview where Dave Grohl admitted to be scared when they both headlined T in the Park.
