Good read. Gave me some insight into the album that I didn't have before.

Really fucking enjoyed this. It's hard for me to place where the blink records, minus Untitled, rank for me. But I love everything on Jacket

Interesting (and refreshing) that they're willing to admit that "The Rock Show" and "First Date" were written to be as cheesy, catchy, etc. as they are. That it was a deliberate, calculated writing in an effort to produce a single.

Solid read.

That's like a well known thing, I think. Well, not necessarily well known, but easily findable on the internet. I remember reading that during their hiatus. Cool to be rebrought up though

For me it's easy, Jacket was the first CD I ever bought and I can't stand any songs on it anymore. Untitled and Dude Ranch remain the only Blink albums worth of my time.

I remember removing the shrink wrap and putting it in my cd player and it was really loud when Anthem pt. 2 came on and my Mom yelled to turn it down a bit. In her defense, it was really loud. I had been listening to some local bands CD that probably wasn't mastered very well, and had the volume knob way up so it was loud (yep, when there were still knobs.)

There sure is a lot of pretentiousness in those AV Club comments. Otherwise, pretty good read. TOYPAJ is my favorite blink record.

90% of this article is regurgitated from the vinyl liner notes. Still an interesting read though.

Record changed my life. Good read, since I've never seen the liner notes before.
