  1. “Do I have to die to hear you miss me?” Is so simple, yet hits so hard. I love it.
  2. This is just Box Car 44. I love it.
  3. It's funny, I've listened 3 times and the "I miss you" at the end messes up my brain, I keep expecting them to refrain the full chorus.
  4. There's a leak of the interview going around Reddit I hear...
  5. Is there a version without that annoying watermark every 10 seconds?
  6. I think their social media person conveniently forgot the 'Thursday' on the post.
  7. That video made me choke up. Fuck.
  8. I wonder when (if??) those missed dates are going to happen now. Maybe attached to the end?
  9. That was sick, I enjoyed that - But the Autotuned First Date left me confused. Was it intentionally dialled up to 11 or did someone fuck up?
  10. For me, the 'target audience' isn't even a major issue with California, like it has been pointed out over and over, they're aiming for Enema-style areas. The issue is the way they fucking present the lyrics. Pre-Cali, even the biggest 'kid-friendly' blink song had a catchy, unique sound and the lyrics were typically simple and told a story. Even if that story was about 17 year olds rebelling against parents, it made sense to what they were targeting and worked. Now, the lyrics are just a bunch of broken, arbitrary metaphors that seem like an attempt to sound deep and meaningful but falling flat. There's no real story, no connection. "Caught in a landslide with the other side" ffs. This isn't Fall Out Boy. From all/most (Parking Lot is dogshit and probably can't be saved) of the extra-Cali songs they've put out so far, there is potential for some good, if not great singles but they're let down by the cut and paste lyric structure, which is a massive shame IMO. I remember reading that Feldy has a "first thought, best thought" motto ($$$hock€r) but I think Mark trying way too hard to seem artistic (and just sounding autistic) is a major contributor.
  11. After giving it a couple of hours and a relisten there's something that really gripes me about this song, along with a lot of California and it's the vocal melody. Seriously - Mark's two verses and the way they're sung/structured strike me as completely different to anything pre-Cali. Almost as if it's probably not written by him... While that's not necessarily something that makes the song bad, what DOES annoy me is that I'm almost certain that it's the same structure as the majority of All Time Low songs. I don't hate Feldy as much as some, but wish he'd let Blink keep their flavour when it comes to songwriting and melodies. Sober had the same problem to me in the sense that you could tell FOB's Patrick wrote it instantly from the melody.
