    Nine Criticisms.

    i was very surprised on the first listen because it all sounded really fresh after california. the second listen was a bit less euphoric. i didn't make it through a third listen. I think it's a very clever produced and written pop-record whit tons of bells and whistles and little production gimmicks that keep your attention but behind that curtain there isn't that many interesting things. I said it somewhere else before but there are always some good parts on songs but also always some parts that feel out of place an cheap. Black rain verses are fucking superb because the production is so over the top. but i don't like the chorus. IRWIHY has a great pop chorus, but the verses are just bland and lame. other pop artists are much superior in that regard. same goes with a lot of other songs... On some Emo shit is the only song they did by themselves? not so interested in the pre feldy demos anymore, that song is a real stinker. Compared to california i think it's a much better album overall and i totally get the praise for it and if a song from it comes on on the radio or on shuffle i won't skip/change station like i did with california tracks. I'm totally fine with blink trying to get back in the top 40 charts territory and i think they're on the right track and I'll be interested in following that. But i won't go see them live if they play in my hometown. Call me a tombot but blink died for me when tom left. I enjoy Rebel Girl and Kiss And Tell so much more than anything blink has released. Mind the cringey lyrics, wierd vocal deliveries and other scammy shenanigans tom is up to, the guy still can write melodies that grab my heartstrings. I'm very glad that a lot of people love the new record, i think it has brought the community together
  3. the outro of that song (i can't tell any of the songs apart) sounds exactly like the +44 interlude
  4. i think he means matt rubano
  5. i think one of the main reasons the board gets so exhausting at times is that people get shoved into those exact categories. i can dislike something the band does... doesn't mean i'm a hater. i can absolutely love a new song they drop. doesn't mean i'm a super fan or blinkbot. i still don't get why people get so defensive about differing opinions on here. i hated on a lot of things since california got released. not because i wanted to hate them for the sake of hating but because i really didn't like it. i like a lot of stuff about the new record. doesn't mean i changed my opinion on the things the band did before. the arguing on this board gets so childish sometimes and I think it's mostly out of bordom when there is nothing new to talk about. so i take the leak of Nine as a blessing. people are actually occupied with the band rather than to look for reasons to fight or to mock people.
  6. If the ever come to s, count me in! love this
  7. whats with people shitting on their light production on this tour? It's so simple but looks fucking amazing
  8. Beat my expectations because they were at an "all time low" after california .wanted to give it a third listen today but aborted halfway through and listened to something else instead. Still a step in the right direction for them i think. almost every song has parts that i genuinely like. but every song has something that ruins the song a bit for me as well... i think there's a great EP on this record
  9. Listened again to it today. Opinion hasn't changed much. It's a good album, the pre-released tracks actually work better in context of the whole thing. It's a nice record for sure, but it just isn't blink to me. doesn't matter that much though, i prefer them changing their sound, rather trying to sound like they did 20 years ago. The record and production sound suspicously linkin park'esque. I'm sorry if this is in bad taste but it wouldn't surprise me if the label noticed the void in that demographic and sees an opportunity there? #fanfic #justathought
  10. Funny. I dont cate about it at all. Wort song for me on the record
  11. I really dont want to be a downer. As i sad i'm pleasently surprised by this record. I buy every record that i love on vinyl. Won't buy this one though. Just my opinion. I fear that the novelty of it all will wear of very soon Edit: please call me debbie. I'd love to have a nickname on here
  12. Some decent Things on this record. Just got through the whole thing.has some nice moments for sure, but i dont feel the need to listen to it much more again.the whole thing just sounds like what it is: a great collaboral effort of a lot of music industty dudes making a worthwile record. Much better than i anticipated but none of those songs will matter to anyone in 5 years. Perfect business right there though. I wont obsess over this like some other blink records, but after the trainwreck that was california, this is a nice change in direction. However if this was a record by any other band i wouldnt even care about it.
  13. Ransom is fucking great. On some emo shit is super mediocre though imo. Do people try to like iz more because it is allegedly only written by the band? Most bland song of the album for me so far... Really surprised by the whole thing still. Great record.
  14. I hated the singles, i enjoy the full thing
  15. Well god damn me, this is much much better than i expected after the pre released songs. Black rain verses are absolutely fantastic!
  16. Hasitleaked literally cites the page that leaked it and you can download it from there
  17. Especially to the people in europe, but lets make this poll general. If blink and ava played the same night at your home town, which show would you attend?
  18. I love the untitles artwork and it is quite iconic for this band. But what was the bands effort in that exactly? Didn't they just hire a friend of travis and say: make something cool?

    am I the only one here who is confused how oliver is posting on this board without being behind a keyboard ?
  22. https://youtu.be/ZUBpeG9V_r8 New tegan and sara song. Album is going to be lit
  23. Listened a couple of times. Still pretty meh. I never thought i'd say this, but if HD,GD and BIOMY is the alternative to feldy, i wish they would stick with just him. 4 people working on a 3minute pop-punk throwaway is more than enough
