just to upset ya dani, ok i do like blink, but there new stuff is AWFUL!!! im talking about the new album, it sucks, i felt really let down by it, the 6 albums before that were really rather good (dude ranch and enema of the state being the best ones) but the latest offering wasnt much good. i hope that at the gig they play a lot of older stuff rather than all the new songs... i prefer the old stuff

Pssh, the new album owns your ass and you know it. It's so much more musical rather than just pop punk etc etc. Its f**king genius thats what it is. Robert Smith + Blink = <3 Come on, it is an amazing album. The older albums are more punkish and each album is different in one way or another but the new record is more mature and they're into more than just punk now (ie The Cure etc) and so it shows int he way they're putting they're s**t together now.


And in february they're set list was mainly "Blink182", "Enema.." "toypaj" and "Dude Ranch" so relatively mixed. It was such a good show, i had so much fun. In american they've also been playing a Medley of Dumpweed, Josie, M&Ms, etc; it sounds so badass, I hope they do something like that.

pfft, ya wont ever beat dude ranch tho. that album was what made blink 182 who they are. enema ruled too, but looking at em both i prefered dude ranch tho. still do, and yes the new album they have 'matured' but isnt the immaturity what made blink who they are? isnt that what there all about? meh, sorry but i think the new album is a let down in comparison.

"pfft, ya wont ever beat dude ranch tho."

I dunno, if I feel like listening to more old school punk blink I'd listen to that album, If i felt like listening to more pop-punk blink I'd listen to Enema etc etc.. and if i fetl like listening to lots of different music I'd listen to the new record. But Dude Ranch does kick as so much and I totally get what your saying.

"and yes the new album they have 'matured' but isnt the immaturity what made blink who they are? isnt that what there all about?"

Well they may be famous for the whole potty humour thing and joke songs, which I do miss (but they'd be out of place on the new album in my opinion) but they still have the humour onstage and off, just not so much in the album which I can understand cause five or six albums down the line it's about time they get more serious when making an artistic album. The immaturity may have made blink who they are, but they still need to mature and progress as a band and not get stuck in the Linkin Park syndrome making album after album sounding the same as last.

Bit of a long post, heh, sorry.

"I Miss You" was great until they released it as the second single, then it got thrashed to f**k with that shi*ty video and its totally been ruined for me now :evil: . Ohwell. And same for "All The Small Things" really, seeing as that's been thrashed to f**k for years now. "Down" isn't being thrashed atm thank god.

Miss You reminds me of my ex. she was a proper f**king b***h to me but it sort of reminds me of the relationship we had at the time.

I know, I love those songs so much. They never released Anthem though as far as I remember..? Plus Adams Song is hardly radio friendly..


edit; I just re-read your post elmarko and realised you said "never realeased anthem", i thought you said they had.

all the best songs get overplayed and become boring and cheesy, no matter what genre of music... thats life
