    Same. I was excited for California at first because let’s face it, Tom was horrible live in his last few years with blink and it was clear he didn’t want to be there. He viewed blink as a joke and it was honestly kind of like a kick in the nuts to all the fans that had been into the band for so long. So at that point the magic with blink was over anyways. It was intriguing to think what Skiba could bring to the band. Now in hindsight, after seeing what the band has become, I wish it never happened. Should have been over when Tom left again. Travis’s plane crash gave them another run but let’s face it, the magic had been gone for years before that. Bottom line blink ain’t blink without Mark or Tom, and this new direction theyve taken the band is trash.

    a lot of the board are musicians and some have done production work, so it's a frequent topic around here. I don't think Diddy represents them as a whole though

    they need to stop working with writers. they're over 40 and have been in bands for over 20 years i bet the songs they were working on back in 2015 pre-feldmann were amazing fuckkkkkkkkkkkkk

    It's called accountability. When they're soullessly milking the band simply because the name sells, fans have a right to be upset. We can't stop them from continuing under blink 182, right, but we can hold our opinion on it. If enough people share the same opinion on something, things sometimes change. 99% sure they won't stop though..

    Based on Feldy’s IG story Blink is in some sort of studio with Ali Tamposi... when I googled she is a songwriter who has written for Kelly Clarkson/Justin Bieber lol.

    Bored to Death has the right balance of melancholy and more upbeat pop that the rest of the album didn't get right. The rest of the album was the summer pop album that blink thought everyone wanted, but I always liked it when blink went a little darker, which is also why I loved +44 so much. BTD had that hint of darkness that the rest of the album didn't have imo.

    It’s not amazing but it’s not bad. At least it’s a change from California. The drums are good, the verses are good, the chorus is catchy, the guitar riff in the verses are good, the production is better than Feldmann, etc. There’s enough positives for me to enjoy the song for what it is. The expectation of any “vintage Blink” is ridiculous. That ship sailed a long time ago, and now we can only take what we get and temper our expectations.

    he’s definitely at a frustrating place for me as a fan. i’ve said in older posts that in interviews he seems more guarded and ready to give soundbites than honest answers. seems like the years of tom dragging him down broke him a little, and when he deemed his experiment with matt a failure, he regressed and made a throwback record with songwriters. he said he got depressed after the california tour, and i can only surmise because he realized that the whole thing with matt and the grammy nod and the songwriters feels mad empty. there’s also been the rumor he’s an alcoholic too, though i’m not sure how true that is. either way, as a fan, it feels like he’s in a very weird spot right now

    Lol you’re so angry all the time, calm down. I like the production of this song more and gave reasons. I don’t have to know about the intricacies of production to have a preference with reasoning behind it.

    Well of course he will say that. He’s not going to tell you his friend Jimbo signed them in the basement. He had several Tom vinyl and got greedy and started having full “band signed ones” - Blink also had not toured with proper Meet & Greets in the recent past before he listed them... imagine that. Also if you had true “proof pix” why not post them immediately (watermark them if you’re scared people will steal them)? No brainer to post them if you have them.

    Pogba - Absolute fucking poison. I hate the cunt and he’s nowhere near as good as people make out. Not even close to world class Lingard - Instagramming little cunt. He’s 26 and not gonna get better. He’s average. Get rid. Bad influence on dressing room Martial - miserable sulking cunt. Not only is he a piece of shit human but he doesn’t give a fuck. Jones - no comment needed Young - same as Jones, it’s a no brainer

    They can do whatever they want, its their band... we are just providing opinions. I imagine Mark/Travis want the band to age gracefully? But ok, lets see how the album turns out.

    so my news is I'm recording that in June, and the dude who did my last music video is on board to do one for this song too, which is awesome! outside of that I wrote a solo number today that might be one of the strongest songs I've written in years. surprised myself a little. it's horribly derivative but I cant stop playing it so it must be a bit good haha EDIT - that new song i mentioned, crappy recording here -

    Reminder to those who hate BIOMY that the whole album likely won't be that way (esp considering Skiba's comment last night saying no two songs are alike), remember the first clip we got: HERE Just listened to that again and got hypeeeee! Cannot wait to hear this whole thing.

    Thanks Kay. What a lovely post. He is right though I do hate the summer. Anything over 22c and I’m melting. I take my hat off to him living in that country tbh. I’d survive 10 mins. He’s still a fucking cunt though and hope his cock falls off etc

    Hey, Wales is beautiful, literally where Scott lives he's surrounded by gorgeous countryside. He also has a young son and loving woman by his side. You can dislike his opinions but frankly I'm a tad jealous of him - he can kick back working part time after working most of his young life to buy a house. He's fuckin' far ahead of most people here in regards to life goals. man is straight up winning.

    The rest of Europe is in decline. Everyone seems to be in transition. The CL final consists of two teams that haven’t won a league title in a combined 80 odd years and spurs have lost 13 times in the league.

    Wow. That was unbelievable. Especially coming back to back from yesterday's match. No matter how much I love the nba, it will never even touch football. That was amazing. Let's go Liverpool now! Love that two English teams are back in the final. Too much barca and real the last years!

    I think he got so introspective and insecure over time that he's just given up any attempt at writing good music anymore and is phoning it in for the cash and the chance to keep doing the only thing he knows how to do - be in blink-182. Doesn't matter what the songs are like, doesn't matter how short and stale the set list is, the substance of it makes no difference to him anymore. his entire identity is blink-182 and he can't stand it when he's outside of it. that's my take anyhow.

    Blink hasn't though right? Just listen to this song objectively.

    I think I would of respected a good pop song no matter what band put it out. Island in the Sun by Weezer is a good example of that. It's just a fine little tune that is instantly distinct and hits all the right points. It falls square in the pop genre and sounds amazing. This song's composition is just nothing to write home about or really experimental in any regard (outside of Mark Hoppus oeuvre).

    My opinion of UNtitled is unchanged. I thought it was just decent then with some faults. I think the same today. But its a masterpiece compared to this fucking garbage.

    outside of my laughing gif (which I stand by) - No one should be surprised by this. California was sonically like blink forgot how they were supposed to sound and took inspiration from the bands they influenced in their past - it sounded like a talented painter getting knocked on the head and being reduced to finger painting. Just a watered down, wanky version of what it should be. We knew they were on a bit of a high from how California performed, and we saw droves of different writers, producers, Feldmann still involved, and Mark suddenly releasing synth-laced 80s stuff. There was always going to be a more pop focused edge to this record - and this single confirms that. this is paint by numbers "please do well on the charts!" track for the modern age, where most songs sounds fucking identical and autotuned to shit. Now it's definitely 'experimental' for blink, because blink don't usually release straight up pop music. so you know, Mark was right on the money there. For direct commentary - Idk why people like the lyrics. they're not as unbelievably 'cringe' as some of California but it's fucking weird to have lyrics about being a misunderstood messy punk kid when there's not a single goddamn thing that fits punk musically in the song at all. it's also hilarious hearing these lyrics from Mark, who's darkest part of his childhood is his parents divorcing.... just like half of the worlds parents. Boohoo, big boy. Musically it's just bad. not really sure how to defend it. I can't talk about it instrumentally because it's a garbled together mess. I think if you actually reduced it to it's bare parts it would've been a typical so-so California song, but they've just scrubbed it with bullshit polish and left it at that. I'm not angry. I'm not disappointed. blink died ages ago, this is just fucking funny now.

    This is my friends exact comments about this song. He's a huge RHCP fan, the way I am a blink fan. But he does like some blink. He was typing it to me as he was listening to it. This doesn't sound like blink it's like a completely new band this song it sounds more like imagine dragons i dont mind the song, don't hate it, but it's just not a blink track lmao i hope the album aint like that just not a blink song RHCP have kept consistent throughout their whole career

    Tbh I'm used to Tom throwing out the garbage hype lines of upcoming tracks and albums, not Mark. I honestly thought he did his job in bringing blink back to the relevance with a poppy California, created a side band with a more popular/younger artist to fulfill his pop/fame-endeavors, and put in place the perfect set up to create a dark blink album.... And then, this. When Mark AND Travis both collectively say that this album will relate to Self-Titled, and then choose to lead off with this track right after their dumpsterfire of a mashup, I can't help but think this is some sort of epic blink prank.
