a lot of people sound super annoyed and frustrated about there only being eight new songs so i'd say no? 

I don't care about that, I didn't expect a 14-20 track album tbh nor did I really want it.  Quality over quantity for me at this stage in their careers.  If they're anything like RG or K&T I'm going to fondle myself.

Here's an actual conversation between Mark and Tom from when things were going bad:

my stance on this is different from most people whining in here.

i'm not a huge ava fan. i like the first album and a couple songs off all of the others. but the two singles from this era are right up my alley, which have me weirdly excited and hopeful for this. especially if they really took their time in 2020 to make it a better album and scrapped any shit songs. 

tom has spent the last decade making it pretty clear that making music is a low priority for him. so, i have learned to expect and accept less. but with blink, it's a lot different for me. i can't stand what they've been doing and i do expect more from them.

 

True to all of this.

Rebel Girl has grown on me loads in the past couple of weeks. it's so catchy. When it was first released, I thought it was just an average and boring song. Kiss + Tell was always just decent to me, but it hasn't grown on me the way Rebel Girl has.

It's literally the heart of blink resurfacing after the brief moments on Neighborhoods/DED.  This rarely happens.  I will say I felt that with Mark on First Time, Cynical verse, and randomly Wildfire pre-chorus. 

Otherwise, all their hearts are out of it imo.

2 years later and Kiss & Tell and Rebel Girl still sound great so let's have them on the album! 

Right?

Sure it'd be nice to have MORE new songs but I want a decent record I can throw on at my 2nd job and zone in on... with Rebel Girl and Kiss and Tell on the record, I don't see how that can ruin the quality of the collection of songs overall, but only enhance it, even if they did come out a year or 2 ago...

Would we rather get 10 songs that are worse than those two songs? Hell no... Dream Walker is still the only AVA release I still listen to with occasional anticipation/joy... the rest of the albums are more or less played when I really need something kinda long to kill time at work when I'm not paying much attention to the music...

I need a quality album, not more fluff with the occasional good song in between.

Just revisited the two songs.

Rebel Girl is obviously the better song imo. Kiss and Tell is too bland. Not bad just generic. Rebel girl lyrics are pretty bad though. Enjoyable to listen to though.

Still neither come even remotely close to what blink did with nine.

Yeah, Rebel Girl sounds like classic tom-songwriting.

I literally disagree with everything in that post. Nine was dogshit, Rebel Girl is incredibly meh, Kiss and Tell is the best thing out of the blink related camp in the last, like, 9 years.

I'm one of the few who really likes Nine. No Heart to Speak Of and First Time are superb songs. Those two are better than the AVA songs by far I think. Rebel Girl has grown on me loads but Kiss + Tell drags on for me. It actually has a guitar riff though, which blink needs way more of with Skiba.

Yeah, to me rebel girl sound very love-ish only with a little more synths, it makes sense you don’t like it that much as you don’t like the love sound

What the hell are people here smoking? Kiss & Tell is garbage.

It always makes me feel better when the resident homophobe and racist disagrees with me. Thanks man!

I'm not too keen on it either tbh. The intro part that repeats after the chorus as well is waaaaay too long, would have made a better impact with 4 bars instead
