i absolutely love neighborhoods. it was just a different era of Blink. i dont necessarily think it was their best album musically (self titled obviously takes the cake for that) But it was an awesome album. there are definite great songs. and it represented mark and tom well in the directions that they both went musically. but it all came together as Blink. There is also alot of emotion for blink fans attached to that album that were true blink fans when they broke up. because it was the first new music we were getting after years of nothing and a sudden plane crash that almost took our favorite drummer. i love that album.
(i love the Dogs EP too)
But that being said. California takes this one for me. It is a crazy good album,. and as much as i miss the old Tom. Skiba is a good fit. these songs are great. most of them could be singles on their own. and i think they are gonna blow up like Fall Out Boy did. as they should
