Today's Retro Reviews post takes a first look into something new: 10 year anniversary reviews.

I posted the high-resolution version of the new Blink 182 single album cover in our gallery. I feel like I'm 16 again and running a Blink 182 fanpage with all kinds of media and wallpapers and such. I'm gonna chase that feeling.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Mark Hoppus revealed that Blink 182 have until July 31 to turn in their new record and that the band will be playing new material on the Honda Civic Tour this summer.
Blink 182's The Mark, Tom and Travis Show will be released on vinyl exclusively through Hot Topic. The double LP will feature a transparent blue disc and a transparent green disc, with the D side featuring the live banter. The pressing will be limited to 2000 copies and will sell for $19.99 beginning in mid-April.
