    2018 "New Album News" Thread

    Yeah I considered GOTDF but I believe you can nail the riff without the delay. It sounds pretty dry in the song. It’s just ironic that we would complain about Tom bringing the AVA effects to blink when he really only did it in about 2-3 songs. The rest of them were just synth driven. PLG’s guitar riff is Tom’s best use of a delay pedal outside of The Adventure IMO.

    Has there been any blink songs other than Disaster or PLG where Tom uses a delay effect?

    That’s just the cocaine.

    We need to talk about Matt Skiba

    Guess he’s gonna off himself.

    There are some song titles on the board such as “Black Rain”, “No Heart to Speak Of”, and “Ransom” while describing their moods. Ironically sound like ALK3 tracks.

    The Tom Delonge Meltdown Watch Thread (Meltdown Inactive)

    Always wondered about the possibility if Tom actually came back. If anything, Matt will probably step down, but if he stayed..they could set the stage up like four piece. You could probably fuel Tom’s ego by putting him in the center or have Matt in the middle as damage control so Mark doesn’t get in a fist fight with Tom.

    Tom’s downpicking skills are up there with James Hetfield’s.

    To be honest, until I read the description I thought it was Feldmann on vocals.

    I think you’re talking about this. It’s the fourth video of Travis’ story. It’s some guy called johan (@isitjohan). I’m taking a guess it’s a joke because it sounds nothing like Matt. https://instagram.com/stories/travisbarker?utm_source=ig_story_share&igshid=1e3nvad54sn07

    My writer’s block is worse than his.

    Probably, if Mark was that clever we’d probably have much better songwriting.

    Ok. Thought it was new blink and got scared that it flopped, but it’s not, so....ok. I bet Mark thinks he’s some cool self-aware motherfucker by shoving Na’s right in your face immediately. That’ll show them.

    Top 10 Post-Reunion Blink Songs

    Half of them were in order but I kept changing my mind so nevermind. When I Was Young (Most genuine post-reunion song, reflects on the past and present) Last Train Home (One of the few songs in the Matt era that was appropriately executed - tries something new but is restraint and lets Matt be himself) Pretty Little female (Second most geniune post-reunion song, perfect mix of AVA while still being blink, beautiful love song by Tom, rap is the lowest point and out of place but not enough to take away from the song) Left Alone (Solid banger from the Matt era, actual good use of the screamy Matt vocals, bridge has a nice +44 vibe and the woah’s actually compliment the song whether than hinder it) After Midnight (Geniune song, I don’t listen to it much but I heard Tom would usually go off in the bridge live but it wasn’t included in the studio, great lyrics) Ghost on the Dancefloor (Takes an AVA song to the next level with the help of Mark and Travis, great lyrics and Travis goes absolute ham in the bridge - one of their creative peaks) Bored to Death (Solid first single from the Matt era, a classic in the post-reunion light, not exactly my favorite and some things could’ve been executed better, but the perfect song to ease everyone into the new era) Kaleidoscope (Top notch Mark, one of the best progressions for new blink, great lyrics, only suffers because Tom doesn’t play on the track but Mark did a decent job) San Diego (A highlight of the Matt era, subject lyrics are a bit inappropriate for Matt to sing but he does deliver one of the catchiest blink choruses ever, the bridge however was PERFECT of Matt to reflect on his perspective, one of the few times Feldmann did something right and forced them to explore the uncomfortable - although I would argue that maybe they wanted to avoid the Tom situation and share that new chapter in a more positive light and not do what people expected of Mark. It worked out in the end) Cynical (Short but sweet song, wish it was longer but it would lose its effect, one of blink’s best openers and Matt’s iconic line creates hype to reel you into the new era, the woahs are unnecessary but you already know how it is) HONORABLE MENTIONS: (In no order) Rest of DED, Misery, LID (bite me), HAG, EISF, Wishing Well, HISALP, TOTTM, HIS, LLF, Natives, Rabbit Hole, 6/8 (BOTO is cool but would’ve been better if they bothered to changed up the melody between the verse/chorus and not doing a carbon copy of LA)

    You’re walking on thin fucking ice with blink buddy. In all seriousness, it’s amusing as hell to see you get info from the blink crew while managing to piss each one of them off 😂. Some of the best content I’ve seen here recently.
