I think it's time people realise blink are not gonna sound exactly like they used to. They've replaced one song writer with another one, and their styles are completely different. Toms gone. Matts in. Embrace change, don't be scared of it. 

Or, conversely, come here several times a day and post a variation of the same complaint in every thread from now until the end of time.

Exactly, I have no problem with that as long as its good music. Obviously people should have known going in that Blink wasn't going to sound the same. WTF did they expect? One of the main songwriters/singers/guitarist is gone.

They have different styles? When will we see it? We've got the same stuff aside from a few songs amongst 25 tracks that don't even reflect their style.

This, no one cares as long as the music is good. No one's that butthurt over Tom when he dragged the band's feet for 10 years, as long as the music is good, ppl won't bitch

I guess I can kinda see 155 verses & lycanthrope matching the chorus here. Don't see much else though.  The pre chorus and hip hop drum chorus just kind of throw it off too much to be +44 similar

A few posts back you said you didn't recognise it as blink so I'm gonna say yes? 

Also I cant take you seriously with that ridiculous username. The fact the F in 'fangirl' is lower case annoys me as well.

And I try to avoid every post you make like the fucking plague because I don't want to make eye contact with your fucking avatar.

Take your username jealousy elsewhere.

I wish the verses didn't have the same melody of the chorus in BOTO along with the bridge being longer (a lot better than LA's bridge) and not even going into the chorus. Both suffer from the "mouth noises" (yes I'm using the phrase again) in the final chorus but I guess it works better in LA. When you hear it live Matt says "L.A. L.A. L.A." rather than the mating calls in the studio version.

Other than that BOTO should've originally been combined with a bit of LA's features rather than having two of the same songs that are missing one of the other.

The chorus and verses being the same melody makes this song get real old real fast, especially as the melody is mostly the same note.

I wonder if that's some kind of turn of phrase that Feldmann had stuck in his head or something because 311's newest single (which was also produced by Feldmann) is called "Too Much To Think" haha. It's almost like they traded words but neither line is as clever as they hoped.

And of course, player Feldmann entered the room

This might be realllllly stretching it, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this alludes to No, It Isn't.

No, It Isn't

"This is where the road crashed into the ocean."

Bottom of the Ocean

"When they finally found my note it read:

If you need me
I'll be lying here at the bottom of the ocean
If you need me
I'll be right here"

At risk of going full "EVERY SONG IS ABOUT TOM," it's pretty obvious that the song is about betrayal. The chorus sounds to me like Mark sarcastically saying, "Hey bud, if you ever want to try for another cash grab, you know where to find me!"
