That opener is disappointing - I keep forgetting it's there

Automatic was a surprising little tune - it's neat Cure worship - could have fit on Neighborhoods (it would suit Mark's voice).

Everything else is fairly inoffensive with Euphoria and Kiss & Tell being the standouts. It sounds like Tom is having fun here. I wonder if I like modern Angels more than modern blink because Tom having fun sounds more authentic? The "fun" of Nine and California sounds calculated and insincere. 

Disappointing af. Their weakest opener to date imo, however, the song is growing on me but as an opener it falls short.

Using a break in my day to give it a spin.

On Timebomb... this song is a festering turd, fair play. Proper cheese. I like the fun instrumentation of it but it reeks of old AVA vibes and Tom's awful lyrics really don't help. 

HEY THERE LIL SAD GUUURL

I REALLY WANNA HOLD YAAA

YOUR HART IS LUIKE A DIEMONDDDDDD

 

fucking abysmal haha

"Your heart is like a timebomb."

The lyrics are fine, pretty on par for Tom. It's not like he's ever been particularly brilliant lyrically.

I swore blind that was diamond hahaha wow that's even worse. 

Tom having bad lyrics in the past doesn't excuse bad lyrics in the present. He should do better.

If this is home is your favorite blink song, do you not like automatic?

yeah I think it's okay.  It also steals from the Cure too much but it's one of the songs that's decent.  I like Rebel Girl, NMG is the best Tom's voice has sounded in awhile but the rest of it is just cringe sounding synths and more bad lyrics. 

I love WDNTW and I-Empire is pretty damn good.  I even like some songs off of Love 1&2 for what they are, but IMO everything since Rubin has been awful and just Tom phoning his lyrics and vocals in even over instrumentation that he'd never write on his own.

What is so good about Automatic exactly?

It's just like a random Cure AvA song with no punch.  The post chorus is cool I guess?  It's one of those boring Ava songs to me.

I guess I like it because it isn't some kind of daft punk song like half of this album seems to be.
