I made it through like 4 tracks, kiss kiss is basically identical to bloody valentine, and it's very cheesy corny paint by numbers pop punk sound, but it's fucking better than modern blink. Still not my thing but I find it hysterical how much riffier this is considering it's basically pop music.

That's because you're not desperately clinging on to your youth.

wow Halsey sounds great. Between the both of them they could bring a huge new following to the genre and blink. Both are huge Blink fans and you can hear blinks influence All over this album. Let’s hope between MGK, Halsey and yungblud pop punk gains a new following. I love hip hop but I’m fucking sick of hearing it everywhere

Helps that Travis produced the record and drums on all the songs :)

I listened to the album and it's not my thing at all. I like one track but if this album can help gain pop punk music or alt rock music a bigger following, then I'm all for it. Like Scott I'm sick of the same old tired music that's been dominating the charts for the past decade and a half.

It's about time chart music became more diverse like it used to be.

This song is great, feel like we have a very similar taste in pop punk Scotty lad.

There's so much blink influence/references it's pretty cool

-In my "Yead", the most obvious one

-Feeling This type outro on Drunk Face

-WWII sounds like early blink guitars at the intro

-Concert for Aliens lyrics and title in general

 

This is a love letter to pop punk it feels like

I just feel like he set the bar too high with I Think I’m Okay last year and then songs like Hollywood Whore on his last album were a good mix of rap and rock. Where this album just feels like he was trying too hard to create a generic pop-punk album. Still a good album and going to keep listening to it but just think it could have been better.

Title track, all I know, drunk face, Jawbreaker, and concert for aliens have all been on repeat for me. 

The rest are all good too though....

Haha, it's just not my kinda music really. Reminds me more of the pop punk bands from anytime after 2005 than it does of the bands before that year.

Yes but it's more a love letter to all those bands than an actual attempt to be those bands. Right?  That kind of makes me see it in a different light, because I think he nailed that.  I hear almost all those bands in here throughout.  

I think the classic pop punk genre is simply just dead.  

I also like the little hip hop spin he put on it to stick to his roots.

Listened to this like 4 times in a row yesterday. Just really well done all around. Honest, endearing, fun, funny, aggressive, catchy.

This is so much better than any pop punk I've heard in years and years.

And I can't believe there is an Operation Ivy tribute. I was so pumped when I noticed that, I listened to that album so much in high school.
