I'm an asshole. I still ascribe by the whole "time spent in the trenches" of punk/pop punk. MGK just decided one day he was going to make guitar music and call it pop punk. There's no background to it, he didn't spend years developing his sound or style (which is why it sounds generic), which is why it rubs me the wrong way. I know it's nonsensical and I know I'm probably wrong in my ideals but ... c'est la vie, I guess. 

If you wanna throw some distorted power chord guitar over some mid-to-high tempo drums, fat tongued, snotty vocals and call it pop punk then, fine, be my guest but don't expect this old curmudgeon to accept your trespassing and not tell you to get the fuck off his lawn.

... Ruining my fucking daisies.

It's a homage.  Tribute.  You dumbass (es)

No but it's clear they lacked faith/direction in their music without him.  He was definitely a mastermind behind their success in their heyday.

Finn was a producer, producers help build the ideas already in process ... I'm not sure why the Krew confuses that with co-writer.

We don't confuse anything.  If I can speak for Ghent I think we argue that if Finn were producing blink albums today, he'd get a writing credit just like Feldmann does.

The new songs literally have Co writer credits from outside songwriting teams (not producers) and Mark has said as much. 

You guys need to let this one go.

Nice try

It was a good homage, it happened to be one of the best mainstream pop/punk albums in quite some time while being a homage, that goes to say something.

It was hilarious.

Being the only mainstream pop punk album doesn't make it the best. It has 3 good songs, the rest is filler with the same recycled melodies and progressions used throughout. It was certainly an effort but let's not get carried away.

That's what mainstream pop punk is, this isn't Dream Theater.

Go listen to Dream Theater.

It doesn't take much intelligence to understand what a homage is.

Homage, tribute, tomato, tomatoe, doesn’t matter. A turd is a turd. MGK is all style and no substance. I bet you think his pink guitar and painted fingernails are sooooo cool
