Dogs Eating Dogs

Doesn't make it right. 

 

On a flip side of everyone saying not to play just greatest hits or singles, which i completely agree with best due to mass overplay im not a big fan of ATST, rock show or first date (not in a hipster "oh god that songs so mainstream" just that ive heard it so much by people using that as a point of reference that im sick of them). Ive never seen blink live, i had tickets to the july 26th(i think) show at brixton (even though we paid for the 25th and was fucked over cos it was cancelled) and didnt get to see them. Id love to see them live, even if it was the hits just because it'd be them. Id consider myself a pretty big fan.

 

What my terrible attempt at a point was is that even the more dedicated fanbase can be ok with just old singles and GHs live because its still something 

 

I agree and to me it doesn't matter what they play i'll always go see them live.

The Christmas/folk song is going to be released on Monday or Tuesday!

"When I Was Young" is my favorite song on DED, and it would've been super interesting to hear what the band would be like now if they had continued in that direction.

i don't think it will top self-titled, but that's because it is an EP that was recorded in a week. from what i've heard so far, it seems amazing for what it is. a step in the right direction for sure.

I would like to know the breakdown of sales between iTunes and blink-182.com. I wonder if the modlife sales contribute to chart position. And what chart is it eligible for?  Is Billboard 200 for albums only?

Digital sales don't contribute to Billboard, I'm somewhat sure.

 

 

 

Im starting to think that Jerry Finn was THE creative force behind ST

Great producer, didn't write the music though.  Far from being the creative force on that album, just a facilitator.  Fact of the matter is most bands and artists create their best work before the age of 30, blink-182 is no exception.  Creativity is prone to fade like everything else as you grow older.

Digital sales definitely do, remember when lady gaga's second album dropped. it sold over a million copies in its first week and there was a controversy because over 400k of those sales were amazon mp3 album sales, sold for 99c or something crazy.

Dogs Eating Dogs is predicted to sell between 50-55k, which is actually really good given it was just an EP and only a digital release.

 

T.I. (Grand Hustle/Atlantic) 150-175k,
12/12/12: The Concert for Sandy Relief(Columbia) 125-150k
Chief Keef (Interscope) 50-55k
Blink-182 (EP, Blink-182 Records) 50-55k

After a few more days of listening I must say that PLG and Disaster are by far my favorites. The others are ok, but just overall too generic. I just wish Tom just spent a little more time with the guitar work, instead of taking the easy way out as I stated before. He could of done so much more with the licks and riffs, even subtle changes would make the songs dynamics change for the better. Just like the review said, in a 5 song EP none of the songs should sound the same, and using intros for the bridges and vice versa is just plan lazy. Overall I give it a 7 out of 10. Ask yourself, if this wasn't blink do you think this EP would even be in the top 100?

Also, I disagree with this. I think the most sincere song Tom has ever written would be Rite of Spring. It was right in the middle of AVA and had almost no similarity to any of AVA's sound, which only adds to the fact that I believe he wrote that song for himself.

 

I feel the exact same way. Rite of Spring instantly came to mind for me, that song is really emotional to listen to. Real insightful lyrics.

I just asked myself if music that's made by blink could not be blink's music. The correct answer appears to be "no". Next question?

Gave it a full listen twice today and I tend to agree.

 

There is a lot of reusing and rewriting melodies of previous songs. Dogs Eating Dogs uses the Stokholm Syndrome riff EXACTLY. They had to of known that. It is so obvious. Where are the bridges to these songs? They are missing. There is some good songwriting on it; I think the PLG verse might be one of Tom's best since Untitled,  but there are also areas where it felt like they rushed the songwriting to get the album out. I know a lot of people will say "so what if it sounds like another song" but the entire point of writing new music is that it is new music.
