There have been multiple blink songs since Matt joined that are better than anything Tom has ever released with AVA.

This latest AVA album is okay, but only in comparison to a decades worth of total shit.

There are two or three good songs on the latest album, but it’s only commendable because the expectation is absolute rock bottom trash.

I’m glad he took a step in the right direction but let’s not get carried away.

Waay closer to Travis Barker new pop-punk era than AvA or Alk3 

Yeah it makes me wonder even IF Tom miraculously re-joined the band again, and he and Mark were on the same page and wanted to just write music straight from the heart like the old days with no goals of industry relevancy or regaining chart success or keeping the pop punk crown or any of the things that led to Cali, Deluxe, and Nine, would Travis even be onboard with that? He's in full famewhore mode and clearly aims for the LA socialite spotlight and social media buzz. He seems like more of an outlier than ever lately.

Overall I still prefer new blink to new AVA but I like both of them. Neither band is as good as they once were and that's fine. I'll always be grateful that I still have chances to get to see them live. (even though I'm not seeing AVA on this current tour. Still a bit wary of concerts with the COVID situation still being so bad)

AvA is like really mediocre music in the grand scheme of things with a few good Tom moments and 1 good song for every 20 bad ones.  But it's still music. It does feel like the band being true to selves and writing stuff, despite it's oddness. 3.5/10 stuff.

Prime Blink, +44, Boxcar, that was obviously the time and a staple to our lives. 11/10 stuff.

New blink is utter junk for what it is with very very occasional Mark moments that can sound nice on the ears but feel pointless at the end of the day and has zero depth. It's just like modern green day except missing a member.

1/10.
