It’s was recorded around the My Dinosaur Life sessions with Mark, originally meant for the Twlight soundtrack but their label at the time Columbia shelved it and recently they must have regained the rights to the song!

reaaaally! where did you see that? (not that i have no reason to believe you, haha, cause it definitely sounds like that era)

Ok, I want to amend my previous statement on TOYPAJ. I still kinda think the second half is a less favorite for me. However, I really like Please Take Me Home. It's also a great ender!...

But, between Enema and TOYPAJ, I guess I prefer Enema. :D

On the YouTube upload of the song the top comment is someone who went to Justin’s solo tour VIP and said he played it for them during that and explained where the song came from

So...checked out DED tonight (as said in the other thread) and now I'm finishing listening to Chesire Cat- both are good, but omg, CC is so punking fun!! ;) (on Touchdown Boy right now) This album is definitely going to get a repeat!!

p.s. not sure where it's best to ask this, but do we know who runs the site's Twitter account?? Fyi, it was from Twitter that I found out about this forum, so thanks so much for that!! :D

hi @Tombomb welcome to the boards! I will never understand when people say that Cheshire Cat is a let down. I love it, I think you should give a chance to both Cheshire Cat and the EP They Came to Conquer Uranus (which isn't on spotify but you can find it on youtube) 

this was the post I was looking for. I had the EP open earlier, but didn't get a chance to listen...and I'm only now finding the name on this device. If it's not too late, I'll try it after CC. I looked up Flyswatter (I was told about it on another site) but the quality is pretty bad so I gave up. Might be better versions out there, but I didn't feel like digging. lol

I'm glad you're here and I'm happy to see you discovering old blink but, please, never say "so punking fun" again.

Does anyone else think that TOYPAJ has aged a lot worse than Enema? don't get me wrong, still love it but Enema is timeless whereas TOYPAJ just gets more corny the older you get I find.

Yeah but I still prefer it to Enema

after almost a year it's been out, what are y'all thoughts on "Nine"? for me personally, even though it's not the signature Blink punk and more of an alternative album, this album allowed me to rediscover the band and fall in love with them all over again as i haven't listened in some time. I also think it's one of their more creative albums. Kind of reminds me of something that's just different from their other stuff just like they did with untitled and neighborhoods but in a completely different way with this record. So i'm a biased fan of the album, but I want to hear some of ur opinions about it cuz from what i've heard a big chunk of the fan base is not a fan of the album.

It's meaningless junk but it was fun to listen to the first couple times.  First Time and Heaven are pretty solid but overall the band has just gotten careless, generic and stale.

BIOMY is the worst song I've ever heard by the band.

Big fan of Nine. Has some weak tracks for sure but to me it's mostly a couple of amazing songs and a lot of very good songs. First Time, No Heart To Speak Of, Heaven, Black Rain and Generational Divide are the stand outs for me.

Darkside is a decent single. I view that track as the "Always" of this album. IRWIHY is a solid pop song but I get why people don't like it. BIOMY is a song I like but it really has no place on this album. They should've saved that for a more poppy album IMO. It doesn't fit like IRWIHY does. Happy Days is one of the worst and boring songs I've ever heard from blink, although I think the verses are decent.

Run Away, Pin the Grenade, Ransom, RTFM and On Some Emo Shit are solid songs, but I don't like the choruses on Run Away and Pin the Grenade. Run Away would've been fine if it didn't have those Feldman styled harmonies which also appear in Ransom. Kinda ruins those two songs for me. Wish they changed the title of On Some Emo Shit, but I do like everything else in that song. RTFM is a good closing song IMO.

Hungover You just isn't a blink song for me, but the outro is quality. I have the same feeling about that song as I do with BIOMY regarding this album. Just sounds a bit out of place apart from the outro. Also don't actually like the song the way I like BIOMY either.

Happy blink day by the way motherfuckers.

28 years ago today, Mark and Tom met at Tom’s garage. So the legend goes - they spouted dick jokes and wrote the beginnings of what would become carousel, and the world was forever changed.


When I went to the U.S. - I had to make a little pilgrimage...

Ooo, sassy! Lol 

In all seriousness though, I couldn't remember if cursing was allowed here or not. Also, I feel CC is the most, musically anyway, punk of the discography...

But yeah, I'll admit I'm a bit of a "play on words"/"dad" jokes enthusiast. :P

Happy Blink day!! Omg! I recognize that place! But was it Toms garage or...? 

I remember watching a like documentary on tv where the guys took the viewers on a tour of their neighborhood and then their recording studio and stuff. They even had their parents on there... I can't recall if it was like TRL or what, but I wanna say it was circa 2003. At least that's when I saw it, but I...well, I'm not sure. It's kinda blurry now. 

But I saw that house and nearly cried! You're so lucky to have gotten to see it up close! That's so cool! :D

Four months ago I remember being like "Yesterday Nine was the best Blink album".

Yeeee - that would’ve been an MTV documentary called The Road Home , can still find it all on YouTube. It’s Tom’s garage alright. Just on a small cul-de-sac in the suburbs. Lucky for sure. Was a crazy experience. I felt sorry for my Iranian taxi driver, had no idea why I was running out to take a pic of a lamppost and a house😂

I effing hate it but I've gone on about it here before, don't see the need to weigh in on it again.

I believe it was called The Road Home.

I thought Nine was all right on the first listen, but it never grew on me beyond that. I don’t mind it and I don’t think it sucks but it’s just nothing about it that brings me back to it. Haven’t listened to any of the songs in months.
