I don't feel like it's pandering to teenagers, the way the anthem songs and shit did. 

25-27 venting about teenage years to teens versus 45-50 talking about teenage suburbia will always be different.

I think most California (even the cringiest ones) are nostalgic/ looking back on their own teenage years rather than trying to appeal to teenagers in 2016/17. What makes TS so good is that it really feels nostalgic. At least it does to me.

Teenage Satellites was extremely forgettable.

I hate Bored To Death possibly more than all the other post Tom songs, I didn’t like it to start with, I tried to force myself to like it and just hated it with each new listen. I would legit rather hear Machine Gun Kelly than listen to it again. Idk if it’s because it was the first one and it has all the hallmarks I would come to hate about California and beyond but man, I hate that song.

teenage satellites has always been one of my favorites and i just can’t explain it. it’s clearly one of the lesser tracks on cali — one that contributes to it being overlong. but i’ve always loved it

California..was perfection from the start and somehow keeps getting better with age. One of my favorite albums of all time 😎

If Tom comes back I’m not sure they will be able to top it. Hope they do, but no guarantees

Genuinely not convinced you even listen to it much, I think it's more about the troll then actual enjoyment.

It’s about the troll and actual enjoyment. Best of both worlds

California is bad.

Los Angeles is brilliant though. San Diego, Bottom of the Ocean & Long Lost Feeling are pretty damn good too. I don't listen to any other California songs though. I did love Last Train Home when it was first released but that song kinda got stale through time.

Nine is a very good album. Never really understood the hate of it. I think I like it because I lean towards music that's a bit darker and outside of a few songs, Nine is a pretty bleak album. No Heart to Speak Of, Black Rain, Heaven and First Time are great songs.

Generational Divide I fucking love as well. I rate the poppy songs more than the ones from California too. I think Lifeforms is a bit better though. Just wish it was a longer album.

California has like... mayyyyybe 6 great songs, and that's even including the deluxe songs too. I hate how "Kings of the Weekend" is pretty much the only song that has a little bit of an instrumental part in the middle of the song. Every other song has vocals going 98% of the time, with Woahs and Ohs filling in the empty space, and it just makes every song feel the same. "California" and "Bottom of the Ocean" are in my bottom 10 Blink songs ever.

The only songs I ever go back to are Bored To Death, She's Out Of Her Mind, The Only Thing That Matters, Rabbit Hole, and San Diego. And even out of those songs, I think the only real standout is Bored To Death.
