    So the obvious release of the day is the new album from Blink-182. It’s out, I think it’s pretty damn good, but now you can listen and judge for yourself. I’ve heard good things about that Blood Orange album, so that’s next on my list to check out. That American Authors’ album is basically having candy for breakfast, so if you’re in the mood for sugar give that try as well. If you hit read more you can see all the releases we have in our calendar for the week. Hit the quote bubble to access our forums and talk about what came out today, what albums you picked up, and to make mention of anything we may have missed.

    still emperor emo Prestigious

    Avalanches came out this week, Blood Orange came out a few days ago, Maxwell I respect but that generally isn't the style of R&B I'm into...everything else is generally hot garbage
    We've been slumping lately, good time to catch up on old releases

    Why have candy for breakfast when you can have cool aid?

    To me it sounds like where you'd have expected them to have gone after take off your pants and jacket... I wanted something that sounded more like an evolution of where they were at with untitled.

    It's not bad, it just sounds like they tried so hard to capture their "old sound" instead of just organically making music. I'd give the album 6.5/10.

    Left Alone should be the next single.

    Blink-182 and Silent Planet today. Should be getting my Blink vinyl in at some point this afternoon.

    I don't think I've wanted an album less than whatever Snoop put out. These old rappers would benefit from putting out 2 or 3 quality tracks a year and nothing more.

    Rapid reaction to American Authors: It's about what I expected, good pop rock. Feel like the first album had catchier songs, but I'll have to give listen to this more.

    Blink is fine.

    Agreed about "Left Alone." Never was a huge Blink fan, but I really enjoy this record. I think having Skiba helps round out the band more. Tracks 7-11 are all solid.

    Just finished streaming Blink and I don't think I'll be buying it. Doesn't even come close to Untitled personally and I don't feel like having Matt in the band made has much of an impact as I would have hoped.

    Silent Planets new album "Everything Was Sound" is an incredible listen.

    I too was never a huge blink fan, but I think this is quite good. I'll be listening to it quite a bit.

    The rivalry is back on

    Blink-182, Bat For Lashes, and Metronomy today. Also, Bad Suns single is fun.

    Bat For Lashes sounded better in theory (concept album about a bride after her husband died en route to their wedding) than I thought it was executed.
  18. YouOnlyLukeOnce


    Agreed. Ive fallen in love with this band in the last year. Fantastic group of guys with complex lyrics

    Is admired for his impeccable (food) tastes Prestigious

    I love the new Blink-182. Really my only complaint is a few minor sequencing and intro/outro things
  20. AsfAstAswegofar


    Am I the only one who thinks the new blink album doesn't sound like anything they've done before? Its very pop. Like how Blink should sound on the radio in 2016. It's still blink but the choruses are bigger the songs more accessible and polished. It doesn't sound anything like toypaj. I love it all that being said though

    Still a LOT of ''old'' rappers making real hip hop out there, and doing it very well.

    I really like the Blink album, but only listened once. Need to give it more time.

    Golden Showers in the Golden State is better than anything on that new Blink album.
  25. SweetThye


    House of Heroes new record is fantastic.
