So like a fair amount of time has passed. I don’t like the album like I thought I did. I don’t even listen to it anymore. It didn’t even come out yet officially and I’m over it. 

Happy people like it, but it’s just not for me.

I’ve been playing most of the NINE tracks since it leaked and now I’m worn out on it, especially with my favorite tracks. However, I do know that this album will have much more staying power than California once this honeymoon phase is over.

Trust me, I said California was my favorite blink album once it leaked.

I wouldn't say that, to me, the more I listen to it the less I like it, but definitely with more playing, it starts to show what to me are some important flaws (and also, some good points). So, as this is the criticism thread, I'm gonna put down some things I don't like.

- Too much and evident autotune or whatever you want to call it.

- Messy shit going on on the background on some songs. Some kind of buried and blurry electronic layers.

- In that regard, guitars are not as present as I would like, but well..

- Mark singing out of range in Back Rain. Is painful to hear (kind of ruins his parts for me) and, as I said, I can't wait to see them playing it live to see Mark blacking out trying to hit his verses (if they don't tune it down the song). Also, I still don't get the praise for this song. Is decent, but I think is a little bit all over the place.

- No Heart To Speak Of. To me, the worst song on the album by far. Annoying melody and monotone as fuck. Even worse than Blame It To My Youth.

Probably because it isn’t

One in particular? Or just the sound in general?

I think Nine is less straight up annoying than California to me but I can see why someone would prefer California, partly because Nine is kinda...sonically messy? don't know how to describe it, but it detracts from the songs a lot and I think whilst I despise the production on California, it is more straight forward and that could appeal to some.

I've purposely only listened 3 times total because I found myself liking it less and less and I didn't want to be alone on the sad little hate train so I'm waiting until it's out on Spotify before bothering to spin it again. Can't say I'm particularly interested in listening to it though, just didn't do anything for me.

Nailed it

A lesser bonus track off of Louder Now or something

but even that's selling Taking Back Sunday short.

Still enjoying the album, but I found another criticism. Mark Hoppus is a Robbie Williams fan. 

He talks about singing Come Undone in Run Away.

I've never cared (even a little) to listen to his music.

But he did narrate the first Robbie the Reindeer short - so he's okay in my book.

I imagine it'd just be Robbie looking confused and saying "you fuckin' what, mate?" because he's not the most well spoken and polite individual lol

Yeah but they both are obsessed with the aliens! Imagine Robbie featuring on Angels and Airwaves.
