Their cover of "Up All Night" sounds exactly like Kabeezy's version...

I noticed that as well, but apparently that's because it is his version.
From Their FacebookBefore people start hating the shit out of us for "copying" Keezy Kabeezys version of Up All Night - we've talked to Kyle and he was honored/glad/had a boner about us covering his cover! He even gave away his name Neighborhoods & Morningwoods that he was gonna name his Neighborhoods cover album.
We also learned that Keezy Kabeezy was actually inspired to do a poppunk version of up all night after listening to our cover of Secret Crowds by Angels & Airwaves.

I don't understand why they are choosing to say "how it should have sounded". Who are they to say how another artists work "should" sound? People change, artists change, get over it. If they'd said they were just doing a pop-punk cover of Neighborhoods I'd be a lot more inclined to support them.

With that said, I do quite like it. Its an interesting idea to do, but I agree with the generic pop-punk comment. But like I say, its interesting to see how specific songs could transfer over.

this is sounding a lot better than original Neighborhoods right now

especially up all night, regular version of that song was atrocious
It's their interpretation, but they're presenting in a way which sounds like ALL Blink fans want this. They're coming off as if they know better than the band that they love, and the whole thing is smothered with unwarranted self-importance.

I know some people who first heard blink-182 through their latest record and love it more than any old albums. Weird.

can't stand people telling bands how their music "should" sound

On their profile it says: "I mean, why choose to cover what's widely considered to be Blink's worst album?" They state that like it's a fact haha. Personally, I prefer the more experimental sound of the S/T and Neighborhoods. I hate everything about this. They've turned the songs into boring, generic pop-punk and they're speaking as if this is what the majority of fans want from blink. I'm pretty sure that these guys are actually in quite a small minority of fans who want blink to put out another album that sounds like Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. There's always that one guy who never grew up and still listens to punk music like it's the only music worth listening to...

The fact that they're selling this as well? Holy shit...
this.

Definitely not better.
I'd fine with this if they were more respectful, no need to say it "should have" sounded this way.

of course, but at the same time, Neighborhoods certainly isn't the way that a lot of fans expected it to be, sure most of them still very much like the record, but yeah

they really needed some more tact and respect before releasing this

also, the copyright rules may be slightly different in sweden, I don't think it's legal but ya never know
