Same here.

 

Mike, I didn't want another Untitled or expected California to remind me of or sound like "old " blink or whatever.

And I'm just sad that one of my favorite bands made a truly forgettable record, not just a mediocre one (like Neighborhoods), but one that I truly don't like.

 

And I hope that their future records will not remind me of this one.

 

 

 

 

Super catchy and constantly stuck in my head for a "forgettable album," I'd love another album or two like this from blink for sure. Though I do hope they try something like Untitled again as well.

Album has grown on me and I've settled on a 7.5/10.

...I think songs like Kings of the Weekend have a timescale on them though, they're in their 40's now. I know age is just a number but I'd be much more interested in the more mature sound moving forward. It doesn't have to be bubblegum pop punk to be catchy. San Diego has one of the best choruses on this album and it's one of the darker more mature songs.

I appreciate this album was maybe needed to get the fun back in a band that has been basically dead on its feet for 7 years after a 5 year hiatus. Just saying what I'm hoping for from the future from Blink.

Having listened to the album all the way through with Hey, I'm Sorry, I gotta say it makes the album better and feel way more complete.   Should have been on all versions really, but at least it's available at all.

I'm sure they are sick of the Tom questions.  What more is there really to say on the subject?

I think the interviewer got confused and thought Matt was Tom.

My friend and his buddies are die hard blink fans...called blink dad rock and midlife crisis regression rock and the album sounds totally lame. I'll reserve judgment til I get my CD and listen

I don't think your friends know what "die hard fans" mean, lol. Blink could have an album that are just them farting in a soup can for 45 minutes and I'd buy three copies.

If Feldy produced it it would suck though.

So if Tom is still part of the blink name legally like Mark said, then he's still getting money from all of this right? The pre-order bundles probably paid for his Hawaii trip.

Somebody in the /r/music thread about the album commented:

"Honestly I think Tom's obsession with becoming Bono has been holding Mark and Travis back for a long time now." and then the follow up "Bono for aliens, not Bono for Africans"

I laughed pretty hard
