I absolutely love the electronic stuff, trap hip-hop beats, flanger guitars

The vocal melodies are also way better than anything on cali, also more personality.

I really have no flaws for the actual songs, total bangers

i do have a few flaws

- A modern problem, still too compressed for my taste. I like glossy, just not compressed

- All instruments sound awesome but the regular distorted rhythm guitar is to digital sounding 

I'm not really bothered by it itself. I'm bothered that the band as professional musicians in the alternative/rock scene are actually fine with this, they must be aware of this ongoing change in recent years

After a few listens it’s a solid album! 

A lot more enjoyable then California that’s for sure. It is a little stale in places though and a few songs I’ll probably skip most of the time but all in all I’m digging the direction they went with this album.

I wish I could see Ghent's reaction everytime he sees the complaint 'too compressed'

I die a little inside. Always start to comment but then remind myself that this is a happy time and move along

If electronica is Mark's new thing, blink should sound more like that record and less like whatever they're doing now.

+44 was barely electronic though, despite the original idea being to use tons of electronics. It was still a guitar-driven band.

That's why it's so great and better than what they're trying to do now.


What's frustrating to me about blink now is they could be good. Very good. I dunno if it's laziness, writer's block or just obsessed with trying to chart by just following the current trend. There's moments on Nine where i'm like "Fuck yes!" and rocking out and then there's a lot of "eh blah."
