    I might regret posting this in retrospect, but I’m a lot more interested in the potential of this album than I was a year ago. Not quite excited per say, as I’m still reasonably skeptical, but definitely intrigued. As we all know, California was done really fucking quickly, blah blah. But this time it does seem like they’re really genuinely taking their time. And seemingly mapping it out much more carefully. They started writing not too long after Cali Deluxe, right? They started recording a year ago, and even with Travis’s health issues in mind, Matt and Mark were still writing and working in the studio during that time, and Travis has been back with them for six months. And they’re STILL not done. I mean, this is a ballsy thing to say, but that in itself is very self titled-esque. Ya know, given all the self titled-esque talk. I also like that they’re branching out with various producers instead of just having Feldy steer the whole ship this time (although I’d still prefer he weren’t involved at all. But hey, can’t win em all). Now the various producer thing can just as easily pull things down as they can push things up, but it does make the playing field much more interesting. I honestly don’t know what to expect anymore, but color me intrigued at the moment. Really wanna see what the fuck this thing is now.

    I'm listening to these songs. The thing is I am sure I have listened to some of them in the past but it's like I've never heard them before. Gravedigger is the most terrible song ever written about a monster truck. It makes sense though that liking the Dave Matthews Band is a prerequisite for being an average white person who likes beer and trucks. Then I was going to say that Two Step wasn't bad only to realize I was listening to Two Step by Def Leppard. I'll keep you updated as I go on with the list.

    I find it intriguing at this moment. The thing about so many people being involved awakes my curiosity. Another different thing is how it will turn out... if it will be a masterpiece or a massive turd. From my irrelevant point of view, I'm expecting very low standards with this band at this point. So if they improve that, that's ok, I guess. I don't know, we'll see.

    I would find it intriguing if they hadn't hired a bunch of outside writers. That and choosing pharrell sends a clear signal. I am completely not interested anymore, they could release a dubstep album for all I care.

    I think Mark has gone through the 5 stages of grief with blink not being what it used to be, and these stages have taken place at various times over the last 15 years. Denial - When BCR happened, and TOYPAJ saw a turn in what blink were trying to do where Mark wanted to hang on to the Enema feeling but Tom wanted to go further, I think Mark saw trouble. He didn't want to let go. Tom wanted to try and push things further and Mark didn't want to lose what they had, so he 'embraced' the concept of going fully weird and properly working together on a different sound. We got Self titled. Anger / Depression - +44, enough said. Bargaining - Neighbourhoods and DED and reforming with Tom. I think he knew it wasn't going to work this time, he knew Tom wasn't committed, he knew it wasn't like the old days, but he was desperate to relive it, so he kept making excuses for Tom and trying to find ways and means to make it work. Alternatively you could argue bargaining was going to extremes with California to dial the sound back to the late 90s and sell out for the relevancy, depends how you look at it. Acceptance - Now. He knows it won't ever be the same again and he's accepted it won't be so he's just flat out stopped caring anymore. Let other writers in, let many producers in, they'll pump out some crap songs for him, he'll tour a bit to keep the money and the name going, and then go do other stuff.

    4/20/18 was the first day in the studio, and you would assume they had some ideas leading up to that. By June they were "well into the writing process"... (Gee if only there was an amazing timeline at the beginning of this thread with every single update ever...) LOL 😃 But regardless, almost a year of this, compared to 2-3 months of cranking out California. I can't wait to hear it!

Atleast hes getting something done (history show). Where the fuck are they getting the money for all that aerospace shit though. No way any of that is actually really happening

    I don't understand how that could sit right with him. it's no longer blink, or even his music, if a shitload of other people are working on it too. That's why I don't think he cares. He's never been the 'shit load of projects' guy, he's always focused on what he's passionate about - and during the whole process of blink allegedly writing and recording this record he's been focusing on some EPs and live shows with someone else. I genuinely think he just does not care as much, that he's given up on it.

    Lol i haven't been posting in general. I come in this thread from time to time though don't be a dick for no reason. I don't remember coming here posting neither one of the three times the last three years when we actually won the ucl. You think I wasn't happy back then? Don't be jealous of a club being healthy and having success unlike any other club ever in a span of 5 years. I understand you may haven't watched the news as close but over the last years Bale has created problems in the club with his behavior and that's unacceptable. Plus Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world(or 2nd biggest to some of you whatever I don't wanna argue this again) no player-coach-person is above the team. I can't understand why you guys don't get it but it's okay. You may think like all madrid fans are stupid kids that became fans because of the success of the last 5 years which is true to some extend but please I was watching the games when we were getting beaten up from Lyon in the final 16 like this year from ajax

    Madrid are thick as fuck if they think Bale can replace Ronaldo. Only messi could
  35. 1 point
    Money talks unfortunately. The problem with Bale is he was bought in to eventually replace Ronaldo, it's unrealistic expectations. Ronaldo is a freak, he's made himself one of the greatest of all time through hardwork and commitment. He hasn't got the natural ability of Messi but it's a credit to him that he even competed with him for the Balon d'Or so often. Any player that is bought in to be the "New" star is always put under too much scrutiny and unfairly compared to them. Bale is a great player, if you can't see that then you are living in cloud cuckoo.

    Bale's overall career in Real though has been average to bad. It's no coincidence that with every coach he's been benched sooner or later. He's had some games here and there where he was phenomenal or made some phenomenal plays but overall he's surely not worth paying 100 mil and the huge wage he will demand. I know someone is gonna pay though that's the way football is right now. I guess he will be a lot better in england the fast football suits him more. So happy for Zizou to be back though. My favorite player ever and the reason I was supporting Real and the france national team(2nd to greece of course ) since I was a kid. Seriously one of the goats if not the goat.

    poor mark. tom was and still the only one who could pressure him to write something decent. nobody will ever come close. it's funny how mark talks about progression, when he never really wanted to do untitled styled record. and he's still insecure about anything he writes. describing SC as a trashy and wierd music, lol - way to go Mark, already making excuses when nobody gives a fuck about SC after a week it's released. well, no tom around - mark doesn't have to try hard. everybody's else making it for him. what a joke. still can't believe he's so afraid to write whatever he wants, when there's nothing really to lose.

    Here's the thing with growing out of "Blink and that kind of music" - I did grow out of pop punk for the most part, like a LONG time ago. Especially the real glossy overproduced style that took hold after Blink blew up. There are always some awesome bands making music with pop and punk elements, but as a specific genre I'm guilty of growing out of pop punk I guess haha. As a kid in the late 90s/early 2000s I fucking loved just about any and all pop punk, I devoured as much as I could. But Blink was ALWAYS the best of the bunch, their music went far beyond standard pop punk to me, and just as I was "growing out" of that style, lo and behold Blink did too! BCR and Untitled mixed things I loved (and still love) about older Blink with the types of indie rock that I was just starting to check out at the time. I wasn't remotely as interested in that next wave of pop punk, with FOB and Simple Plan and MCR and Panic and ATL. So I did grow out of that world, and so did Blink, and then with California they not only went back to pop punk they actually inserted themselves into that later style that I didn't like as much in the first place. There is no doubt that if Enema or TOYPAJ came out today they wouldn't click with me the same way they did when I was an obsessed middle schooler haha, that's just how music works and there's nothing wrong with that. But there is also no doubt that I would like them WAY more than I liked California, and in fact I still like them and every other Blink album so much that I still fuck around on this message board with all of you people waiting impatiently to find out what they'll do next!

    Nah, still love Enema and Dude Ranch just as much as I love the smiley face album. I do feel completely different towards TOYPAJ though. Used to love it whereas now I just have a similar opinion to it as I do with California. The albums just don't sound honest to me. Instrumentally TOYPAJ kicks ass though.
