I don't mind toms "new" vocal style as much now. It's his repetitiveness with the keys/synths that ruin every song. I think that's why the first AVA album was so good, it was fresh, catchy, and all of it seemed to work. Years later it's stale. I think the ava synth has no place in Blink 182.
They used to be raw, just guitar/bass/drums, and I think they should go back to it. If they want anything else, use pedals...distortion and delay.
Totally agree with you, no more synths in blink-182's songs.
