Honestly a little scared about this release, we have heard absolutely no snippet at all for this album (not counting random drum tracks from Travis). Last album we had several videos of Mark doing vocal takes, basslines, along with the infamous Cynical video of Matt. The only thing we had so far was a clip that Feldy accidentally left the sound on that could hypothetically be for blink, based on his reactions to cover it up once it spreaded. But who knows, maybe it’s not for blink after all or it got scrapped (I think it “leaked” before all the producers came in, but hopefully they kept that track in some form). Someone mentioned that they might be using these producers just to get some radio hits and having some experimental deep cuts for the rest of us. At least they are doing something different for once, although this is risky approach. Hopefully blink does not go the FOB/P!ATD route, and if they do make a pop record, it’s an actual decent pop record (although I don’t know what the producers are capable of for producing this blink album). Like someone said here, it’s concerning to not see Matt there with the rest of the band as frequent as the other members.
Either Mark and Travis are scared shitless or they know it’s going to be something genuinely special. They’ve been hearing all the complaints of the Cali era since the day it dropped and even acknowledged it, so hopefully they took it into account.
Would like to hear Matt’s opinion on the record considering he’s probably the most unbiased source that have right now, and I don’t believe he overhypes things as much as Mark or Travis (or even Tom) do.
