I-Empire was awful. Mark and Travis could basically fart into the microphone and it would still be a million times better than that album. Glad to hear that Travis is healing and I'll look forward to hearing new material from them whenever it's ready.
I-Empire was not even close to awful, it was so damn good, its just not a Blink 182 record which most people want and if thats not what they get then they dont give a shit. Im sure a lot of Blink fans want everything Mark Tom and Travis to do for the rest of their lives to sound like Blink, well thats not going to happen. Ive been a huge die-hard Blink 182 fan for years and years but at least I have come to terms about everything thats happened and wont happen with Blink 182 in the future. People need to stop living in the past and move forward, try to at least enjoy and embrace the new music they put out, give it a fair chance and if not then so be it. Thats just my opinion ... I know its completely off topic though.
