"Idiotic comments" or perfectly fair criticism?
Idiotic comments.

Neighborhoods is a good album. I am going to listen to it right now.

It's idiotic if it's a band Tate likes. Otherwise, perfectly valid.
Nah, I like plenty of bands that suffer from bad recording decisions (and call them out on it) ... the vast majority of songs recorded without the band members in the same room were just fine on this album. It's a crutch used to not think critically about the songs themselves, instead passing the blame.

The only comments I would see as idiotic with regards to Neighborhoods are, "this album is incredible!" and "I don't think recording seperately affected this mediocre album one bit!"

Also, Skiba's comment on the tweet was kinda funny.

in that tweet it looks like Tom doesn't want to be there.

I don't know. You compare Neighborhoods to any of the other albums they made, especially S/T, and it's obvious that them being in the same studio to flesh out the songs is what made them really work in every way. On the last album, it just seemed rushed. It works for some bands, and it didn't for them. Alot of the songs were duds, even if the album had a few classic tunes.

I wonder if this means there will be vocals in the bridges????????????????
wondering the same thing. I'm hoping for more songs like snake charmer, natives, and hearts all gone and songs less like fighting the gravity and love is dangerous

Can you name (without looking) which songs were recorded in the same studio and which were demoed in the same room and which were done 1/2 and 1/2 and which were recorded/demoed 100% not in the same room?

Well I still think their recording process on the last album was a big reason it fell flat. At least for me. Then again the process wasn't nearly as terrible as the production, which was awful.

Sonically better than Enema IMO. Just the tech enhancements in the recording of music in the last 10 years alone make it sound better than anything pre-TOYPAJ. It's not like they had hacks producing/mixing/mastering it ...

i think they'll benefit from writing/recording together in the same room rather than back and forth through emails though. the process is much faster and more thorough when you are all in the same room bouncing ideas off of each other rapid fire.

however, i get what Tate is saying. just because they didn't record in the same room doesn't mean that that's why some songs suffered. the songs suffered because they just weren't written as well as songs in the past. the production wasn't very bangin' either, which isn't necessarily Blink's fault. i blame Chris Holmes for a lot of why Neighborhoods didn't SOUND as good as it could have. but what do i know?

Jason, I honestly do not know the answer to this and I truly am curious, but how much experience do you have recording with a band? If you have done some, have you tried both recording together and separate?

I thought you didn’t like them anyway. Ha.
