Totally agree that Lights and Sounds is criminally underrated. Also agree that blink missed out big time in promoting Neighborhoods (I still think that Wishing Well as the lead single could have put them back on the map in a much bigger way.)
I back that whole blurb on Folie hard. I fucking hated that album in 8th grade when it came out, love it as a senior. I still think 27, w.a.m.s., West Coast Smoker, Tiffany Blews and I Don't Care are terrible songs, but everything else has grown on me. I'd consider Headfirst Slide into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet the best song Patrick ever released and Water Buffalos and What a Catch aren't far behind. But boy did that album piss me off when it came out.
I didn't know anyone liked it until I started coming to AP.net a few years back. All of my friends in middle school hated it and all the Fall Out Boy fans I met in high school hated it too. Apparently it's everyone's favorite here.
New Again for sure. More people are warming up to the record, but many TBS fans still can't help comparing it to the group's back catalogue when judging the album's music, leaving them to criticize it much more harshly than if another band wrote and released it.
Other albums that come to mind:
Bad Religion - No Substance
The Offspring - Splinter
Rise Against - Appeal To Reason
Smashing Pumpkins - Machina/The Machines Of God
Underoath - Lost In The Sound Of Separation.
Splinter was a fucking great album. The last good one they made.
