I'm not agreed with you guys, I'm really excited about blink future. They have a Grammy nomination, deluxe album on the way, tv apparences and also media coverage. I like the way the things moving forward. Sometimes I think that you all really don't know what you want from the guys.

Umm ... good songs ... that's about it.

Yeah, basically. I want songs I like, they haven't managed that lately. I'm happy for them, but I don't like the music currently. I hope that changes but as this has been so successful for them I don't think it will.

I just hate those woah's with a burning passion and would never understand why they were written in there the first place.

They use a backing track for Mark anyways, just let him take a breather and let the backing track play so when he sings the next part so he doesn't sound like he's having an asthma attack there too.

It starts with a "F" and kind of sounds like Shelden. But with an F sound and a "men" sound at the end.

what?! you mean i'm a fan of the band whose message board i've camped for over 10 years?

i am such a freak!

Oliver has proven that you don't need to be a fan to spend 10 years on a message board. You can just just as easily try to shit on everything they do for 10 years.

LOL, I don't think I shit on the band. I am a realist, which is why I saw all the Tom stuff a coming many years before you guys were done sucking his dick. It is why I saw the reunion for what it was, again, many years before you guys would admit it had problems.

Been coming here for 11 years, been a blink fan for 17-18 years and I still can see them for what they are. Blind devotion isn't a pre-requisite for fandom.

I spent a good 2 or 3 years here being called out for being too negative. no blind devotion here.

just happened to be stoked when my band is active, enjoying themselves, and having success. it's cool to be resistant since Tom's not in the band or whatever you guys get all uptight about, but i'm just not feeling it. Love the current state of the band ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You predicted like one thing that ended up happening (and a bunch of stuff that DIDN'T) and you act like you're god's gift to foresight.

You had a shrine to Tom until you were like 27. You got in more dick sucking than any of us could ever imagine.

 

Ever seen Major League 2? You're just like Randy Quaid. And when Tom comes back and puts on a Hurley beanie the way Wild Thing put on those glasses, you'll come crawling back just like Randy Quaid.

Ghent your whole "Tom" theory falls apart with me (guys who are critical of the new Blink are tombots). Maybe it is true in certain situations but it ain't true here.

I know we are covering old ground, but I just didn't think the album was that great, it was ok, and it pisses me off that they brought it some saw'd off prick to help, and we've been over this, but it kind of blows my mind that more people don't have an issue with that. But whatever not getting on that debate again.

So in summary, I am happy they got back together, and are writing new music, and all of that, but I think your assessment is way too positive, and its like you sit here and try to discredit every single bit of the negative, like its a perfect situation. Its NOT!

They have had a #1 single, are about to have a second #1 single, haven't even released the song with the most general potential, got nominated for their first Grammy ever, nominated for iheartradio awards, are touring the world and having a blast, and you are sitting here telling me how shitty of a place the band is in.

#meh

That's great, good for them, but I guess I don't base how I think things are based on billboards, album sales, and award shows or I don't put much stock in it. Obviously I don't want albums to flop but it doesn't factor in to how much I like something.

Justin Bieber does amazing too.

I'd want the Grammy nomination, deluxe album, tv appearances, media coverage AND songs that I love. I'm not angry at them or anything like that, it's just a funny place in Blink history right now when they're doing all the things I wanted them to be doing since the reunion BUT they're doing it with songs that don't appeal to me nearly as much as all their other albums. So it's bittersweet, I guess I'd say.
