What do you think of the new Blink 182 album?

Posted by - 04:40 PM on 09/14/11
I saw Mark Hoppus was talking on Google+ about the new Blink 182 album. That got me thinking it may be fun to have a similar thread here; given the history the band has on this site. So, what are your favorite new songs from Neighborhoods? I've got to say that "After Midnight", "Wishing Well," and "Kaleidoscope" are early favorites. It looks like the general consensus is that it was well worth the wait.

I'm going to hold out on it, but I'm wodering. Does HAG sound better? Like do Mark's vocals actually sound natural?

Boring. Was never a big Blink fan to begin with, and this confirmed it. There's so much better music of the same genre out there.

Damn, I honestly believe this is their best album. All of the songs are great, but if I had to pick some favorites, I'd say "Ghost on the Dance Floor," "After Midnight," and "Natives."

THIS ALBUM IS SOOOOO GOOD.

yes it sounds a little better, vocals have a little more pep to them, and the drums sound a lot more full. but not by much. they wanted this song to sound like old-school blink even down to the production. the approach is very minimal, but it still sounds great and in no way sticks out on the album. it still flows beautifully.

Love the first two tracks so much. Heart's All Gone Interlude is awesome, and Kaleidoscope, Love is Dangerous, MH 4.18.11, and Snake Charmer are early favorites as well. I love the atmosphere, tone, and everything on this album, really liking it more than I thought I would. Lyrics are a weak point, like always, but that's okay. If anything, this album is a rush of nostalgia for me and all the memories I have had listening to this band with my best friends.

And one can't properly judge a blink album without a road trip.
