everyone is ignoring CC's first 'blink related' post in almost 4 years 

If you engage him he will just turn it into some sort conspiracy nonsense. It's best to just read it and move on.

So weird that he put his head above the sewage water he's been swimming in for four years just to post some random "Jimmy Eat World Meets Blink 182" youtube bit

Went back and listened to a good chunk of California and Nine today. Nine stayed about the same, really enjoyed it for what it was but still kind of off and California still just didn't click much for me. It's okay enough but never a go to and then I realized I kind of just always liked Tom's vocals. I miss his voice in Blink. Now, I know he was shit live and I know his vocal style changed a bit over the years but on record you always knew it was Tom, his voice was unique and for that he has always been a singer I clicked with. I think that's the main reason I never went fanboy over the new stuff.

He’s a unique individual by all accounts. Blink is one of those unique bands that truly needs all 3 members (Mark, Tom, and Travis...dont be stupid and mention Scott) to truly remain blink-182. You could argue maybe possibly Travis could be removed (and you’d be wrong), but certainly...without Mark AND Tom...there is no true blink-182 :-(

Agreed. I also think mark and toms voice sound better together than mark and skibas.

Scott could obviously replace Travis again.

They definitely do. As much as I love skibas singing Mark and Tom definitely complimented each other better.

I’m glad they let Skiba sound like Skiba on Nine though. His voice works a hell of a lot better on Nine then Cali.

yeah Mark and Skiba's voices kinda merge together. That's why I like Skiba in Alk3 because Dans voice is so different, same with Tom for blink.

Remember when Bored to Death came out and we were trying to clear up which parts were Mark and which parts were Matt?

It's so obvious now that I've heard it 1000 times, but that was definitely a thing haha.

On NINE they did a good job differentiating the two.

On Cali it was like Burger King vs apples, same thing.

Nine was like Burger King vs homemade chilli, huge difference.

You know what I appreciate about you, Jan? You always keep current board references in your posts.

I remember when 'Bored to Death' first premiered on KROQ, the DJ asked something along the lines of why Matt wasn't featured on vocals at all.  That CD was really bad about differentiating the two vocalists performances.

yea I remember it took a bunch of listens before I ever figured out it was Skiba on the second verse. And that’s coming from someone who listened to Marks voice ALOT for the last 17 years leading up to that song.
