    The blink 182 general discussion topic

    He's not making music with Feldman. He's making pop music with Alex Gaskarth. Also, the new Blink songs sound like a continuation of California.

    California Reviews Thread

    He said it after he recorded the drums. The mics were the drum mics, he didnt leave the room to talk to John, he would have been listening to Travis from the control room.

    I really wish Brohemian Rhaspody was longer, it had the best guitar on the album for sure. I think it would have actually made a good Anthem Part 3 if they did the rest of it right.

    California Reviews Thread

    Well it's because Travis recorded this whole album with one take per song instead of recording it in sections, so asking "is that really it?" when it's really short and they've asked him to record the whole song makes sense. Plus there is a fairly big gap from the last hit to when he says it.

    It was captured with the overhead / room mics which were setup to record the drums.

    California discussion

    California is a great album but I have to say that this is the first Blink album where I haven't liked every song on the record. I also like every song on the Box Car and WYHSB albums, and I do think that I prefer WYHSB to California, just because I'm not too big on the poppier sound they have gone for, and it's kind of missing that punk edge that they used to have and that even neighbourhoods had. I am looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table in later releases though, because Matts vocals on this album are phenomenal and I'm 100% sure that they can top this album.

    "The Sum 41 Thread"

    I think SBM was their best album, and it's not even really far off the sound of this song

    California discussion

    I agree with the vocal effects, Feldman could have toned down the pitch correction a little as it really takes away from the characteristics of both mark and matts voices, the constant harmonies might be a part of that too. I think San Diego is easily the cheesiest song on this album, it's the chorus for me. The "Listen to our favorite songs in the parking lot" line just sounds like something someone like 5SOS would write. I also think Left Alone has the best chorus on the album imo, Matts vocals and the vocal melody are just so pleasing to the ear.

    What does Blink 182 do next?

    Yeah people did just start speculating. The song that they were talking about it going to be on the Japanese version I'm pretty sure.

    What does Blink 182 do next?

    I don't know who mixed California, but Tom Lord-Alge has mixed most Blink songs / albums. I think for a band like blink the production influences the sound a lot more than the mixing and mastering. The mixer will generally just try and shoot for the best version of what the producer was trying to achieve with the sound, but you can't polish a turd. For example, Tom Lord-Alge mixed TOYPAJ and also most songs on Neighbourhoods. TOYPAJ sounds way better than Neighbourhoods and that's because of how bad the production was on that album. They might aswell just stay with Tom as a mixer and switch up producers from album - album IMO.

    Tom Delonge new song "The Invisible Parade"

    I see people saying Blink isn't Blink without Tom, but it's not really Blink with Tom at this point. I'd rather have a Blink 182 that actually plays music and likes eachother, than a Blink 182 that doesn't really function at all outside of a few shows a year. People obviously don't like change, but I think it's best choice they could have made in order to move forward as a band and not stay stagnant like they have been since the reunion.
