  1. When I read what people post here sometimes I feel like I'm talking to some crazy cult person who wants me to join their faith. To me it's still Blink's weakest record ever and a huge disappointment, simply forgettable. Cool for them that they have some commercial success, but I personally hope that doens't mean we'll get California pt 2, 3, 4 ... for the next 20 years or so. Honestly, I'd rather have no new Blink record than something as bad as this again. I'm pretty sure that means that I'm a Tombot, not a true fan, just a stupid negative person. Whatever.

  5. Funny thing: If you are constantly sucking blink's dicks and Feldmann's dick (no matter what they do), you're spot on because.... because... the number one on the charts, man!!! The selling numbers!!!! The Grammys!!! But... If you are responding to that with an opinion (and some known facts) that, being the opposite, is perceived as negative, you'e a Tombot. If you say constantly that this album is golden and all, you're spot on because... the numbes, mate!. If you respond to that with an opposite opinion, you're always repeating yourself with negative crap (and also, you're

  6. They will be like "we came in, just putting finishing touches on the songs that didnt make it on the record. But Feldmann has a crazy energy and so we wrote like 10 more songs so now we have like 15! Coffee coffee donut donut hahaha" Enter california pt2 summer 2017.

  9. Blink is under the BMG Label. Their top-priority demographic is most likely teens and young adults. SOOHM has that main riff that sounds very similar to WMAA. They're banking on the "pop-iness" of the song to appeal to young people, or at the very least the label is trying to replicate the success that WMAA once had. From a business standpoint it makes logical sense, but as a fan, it kind of makes me go "this is pretty wack." Personally I liked the direction blink was going during the untitled era. They were making music that sounded unique and was actually good. Then it all got fucked up

  10. Fender would be my go to ... go for a fat strat and rip out the pickups, swap 'em for your preference. Lower the action and you've got a great guitar.

  11. did you guys realize that times change? just think about it: the same songs would get dfferent reactions in 2001 or in 2016. the band can be the same, the style can be the same, even your taste can be the same, but the feeling, the connection between you and those songs will have a totally different basis. the main factors are: - your age, - the technical development. obviously you will connect differently to a joke song when you are 16, or when you are 31. but you can get over it, because you are a smart person, and can handle it by calling it nostalgic, or maybe you do want t

  12. I can't stand the whoas in the chorus after each line, so out of place and forced, old Blink would have been a guitar riff, or a Travis fill to accent.

  14. This is exactly like my group of friends. All of us are pretty big blink fans and a few casual fans and all of them don't really like the album or even listen to it anymore. Like you said, it all comes down to who you speak to outside of these boards.

  17. Mark said they're planning mid February but it could change. Since they're seemingly still recording, we assume its probably changed but nothing's been said. That's how love pt 2 happened. It was originally going to be an EP of the love b sides (Surrender and Strange Celebration) with the love score to come out alongside the movie in August, but Tom just kept turning stuff from the score into full songs and it became a full album released in November. Doomsday California pt 2 is basically love pt 2.

  18. Well if that's the case most people shouldn't like enema, take off, or untitled then. Jerry Finn was the 4th member of blink, and helped out with the writing process.

  20. "She's Out Of Her Mind" hit #1 today. Sadly, Green Day will most likely block them from that spot on BDS/Billboard (which is the "official" chart).

  21. Exactly. Normally, I don't care that much about environmental shit when it comes to albums, unless one of this two situations happens: - The album is amazing, like mindblowing and special. - The album comes from a band I like, that made really good records in the past, and it just feels 'weird' to have a lower point on their career, sounding not 'real' or whatever you want to call that feel. In both cases, I just want to know the hows, whens and whys. Just for fun, nothing obsessive. And that does not change the opinion. Just make it more understandable.

  22. that's what i was talking about: your opinion on the music doesn't come from the music. it comes from unnecessary meta info. if the data flow rate would still be on the level of 2001, you wouldn't know shit about feldmann. you wouldn't even think the producer was with them constantly and instructed them. you wouldn't call him co-writer. you would just listen to an album by your favorite band... would you think it has flaws? obviously. (or maybe not. maybe you wouldn't have learnt all those shit over the years that made you this critical.) but i doubt you would enlarge the flaws - you just

  23. I don't think anybody has said that (not me). To the people who are being critics with the album since a few weeks, I think that what's happening is that California just gets on its own slot on the band's discography after the initial effervescence and hype. That's what I experienced. Once you get enough plays and put it in context, you get a different perspective. I mean, at least to me, it happens really often. My case hasn't been so radical, though. I sitll like the album, but well, it's not going to be my first choice when I reccomend a blink record, or is not the first one that comes to m

  25. Of course people are going to react differently to a song in 2001 than they did in 2016, but a real band, one that is honest, shouldn't be writing the same music in 2016 that they wrote in 2001, and you might say "well Oliver that is what they do" Yeah, bullshit. Ton of bands maintain success as they grow, it is what fucking Blink use to do as well, if you remember the jump from TOYPAJ to Untitled. As far as writing what makes fucking money and not what is honest. Of course that is what they are doing, they brought in the biggest writer for hire sch long in the industry. Now you mi

  28. I'd go for a Les Paul without a doubt. And, about the tone and the pickups just worry not that much. Well, of course you have to know what ones you want to be on your guitar and what sound do they make, but don't forget that a lot of the tone thing is something that has to do with the amp/cabinet you get, pedals and stuff. If you can, go to a store, play some Fenders and Gibsons, and ask the guys all the things you want to know. I'm not sure if Jaguars and Jazzmasters are the ones to go when talking about punkock (sure Skiba uses the Jaguar, and Cobain used it too), but you have t pay att

  35. ^^^this X1000. I think this is the majority of Blink fans that exist in the real world. Anyone I know that is a casual fan in my personal life actually listens to the band again because of this album and was always confused by the recent Tom shenanigans. The hyper-critical fans just tend to huddle together on messageboards and reddit and bitch and moan about the glory days, and are probably the same people who hate The Force Awakens.

  36. Haha I think it all depends on who you talk to outside of the board. It might seem like just some weirdo obsessive people here if your real life friends all love the album, but it's the opposite for me to be honest. Me and my friends have been big Blink fans since we got into music and I can't think of one who was stoked about California. Weirdly enough, I'm probably the most positive about it out of anyone I've talked to!

  37. Blink are in a great place right now...for themselves. They are making a tonne of money and getting a lot of press but a large portion of their hardcore fan base aren't pleased with their latest album and the direction they seem to be heading. That is why people are complaining. Are fans just meant to be happy because they are releasing music even if they think its crap? I honestly think it's cool they are back in the spotlight but it's bittersweet because I don't really enjoy their latest single or the album that much.

  43. He kept postponing the interview but we finally made it. It went well and he was also very kind, I didn't expect that, even though he didn't talk much and his answers were kinda short/monosyllabic. I'm used to musicians that talks all the time and they spent like 5 minutes on a single question but I've been listening to AFI since I was 15 so it was great to talk to him. What a nice guy! He didn't want to talk about how the band has changed through the years so I didn't ask anything about it but his answer to the question about the writing process between him and Jade was interesting.
