What people think Boxcar Racer would be like           What it would actually be like  

The only way Tom should be allowed back in the band is if he climbs that same street light to impress Mark this time.   *broken ankles are optional.

I disagree, that was obviously an awesome round of music from Tom but short lived as fuck and has been a down slope ever since.

When Tom was 'seemingly' happy (90s-pre Boxcar) he seemed much more sustainable and focused as a musician.

So you agree untitled has been grossly overrated and overhyped on this board?

It’s probably my least visited blink album. Rather listen to California 

I wouldn't go that far but it's not very high on the revisit ladder for me either. 

Personally, I'd go

TOYPAJ/Dude Ranch 

Enema

DED

Neighborhoods

Cheshire 

Untitled 

Buddha 

Nine

California

Untitled is the better album in a technical and song writing sense. I guess you can enjoy Nine more but you'd be an affront to God and eventually you'll get your comeuppance.

I wouldn't rank Nine above Untitled, but Cali definitely.

There's a difference in what's "better" and what "I usually want to listen to"

9 times out of 10, it isn't Untitled.

Yeah I think recency bias and a lot of those songs being played out to me makes a huge impact on my decision. I know they are most proud of Untitled, and it's an incredible album - but I'll take several other blink albums over it all day.

No, Untitled was great as a one off, hence the "short lived" success from emo Tom.

Musically, it's probably their best, but I think Dude Ranch - Toypaj was more defined blink and what they're all about.

If I go track by track and choose that way:

1.    Feeling This vs. First Time = Feeling This 
2.    Obvious vs. Happy Days = Happy Days
3.    I Miss You vs. Heaven = Heaven
4.    Violence vs. Darkside = Darkside
5.    Stockholm vs. BIOMY = Stockholm
6.    Down vs. GD = Down
7.    The Fallen vs. Run Away = Run Away
8.    Go vs. Black Rain = Go
9.    Asthenia vs. IRWIHY = Asthenia
10.   Always vs. PTG = PTG
11.   Easy Target vs. NHTSO = NHTSO
12.   All of This vs. Ransom = Ransom
13.   Heres Your Letter vs. OSES = HYL
14.   Im Lost Without You vs. Hungover You = Hungover You
15.   Not Now vs. RTFM = Not Now

Untitled= 7
NINE= 8

It's close, but Nine wins for me currently.

Been saying it for years.

It's not overrated you bitch.

I will say I listen to Neighborhoods more but that's nothing to do with where I'd rank Untitled.

I don't think there's ever been an album I've listened to more on my walkman. It was perfection because you could just skip the last track and start over.

I will say songs like I Miss You get overrated now (still a great song) but ones like Asthenia, Easy Target, Stockholm get mad undervalued. They're masterful.
