    This one is probably my least favorite so far, but definitely is not bad.

    It's interesting how on Cali they have songs that are kinda vocally exhausting, and this one has no breaks for just music but it just feels like it works well

    I don’t want to slate blink as they’re one of the most influential bands to strike up in my teenage years but these songs just don’t do anything for me. I’ll still listen to the album as a whole when it’s out but I’m not expecting much at this point. I feel I gelled more with Cali i.e Bored To Death, Sober and Left Alone.

    That said of course it doesn’t touch the Tom and Jerry Finn days. The band was really at their peak at that point and I think I wrongly judge them for that?

    Definitely my favourite of the tracks released so far. Always dig sad Mark.

    I actively resent Feldmann for what he's done to Mark's voice. At the very end of '...Hated You,' Matt comes in with a soulful rendition of the main vocal which intercuts with Mark. Thus, you can tell how soulless and processed Mark's vocal sounds in comparison to Matt's. And I love Mark's voice so this is saying a lot.

    Things have changed.

    Are we doing this thing AGAIN where we assume EVERY bad part of a song is Feldmann's fault? Andrew Watt and John are both listed as producers on this song. People said the same shit about "Happy Days" and Feldmann had nothing to do with that song. Maybe that's just ... how Hoppus has to sound these days?

    Yeah I think you have to separate the Tom/Jerry Finn era and this era of the band. I don’t think the band could ever top the Dude Ranch through Untitled years even if Tom was still in the band.

    So you were in the studio when this song was recorded?? Fascinating!

    Mark’s produced albums before, and if he had an issue with how he sounds I’m sure he’d make it known or fix it.

    The vocal effects are a bit much but doesn’t ruin it for me, love that chorus.

    Oh, are you saying one can't reverse-engineer Blink's revolutionary sound?

    It's the same affectation that Feldmann first brought to the table. So, forgive me for crediting him with something he started.

    No, I’m pretty sure Mark is a big boy and he’s not happy he’d make changes. I can see just fine.

    After 5 songs released, people should have some idea if they want this album or if it’s not for them.

    @Mike J Why do you do this to yourself?

    This is going to be a very polarizing album, I think.

    As much as I dunk on new blink material, Mark sounds better on these songs than he did on the first couple blink albums.

    Is it just me or does “I Really Wish I Hated You” low key sound like some butt rock band with a Mark Hoppus feature?

    Really disappointed in the direction they seem to be going with this album. Not enjoying any of these singles. I think it’s time I tap out on being a blink fan and that bums me out.

    I thought everyone would’ve liked Generational Divide.

    Can’t you still be a fan and not care for their new music? I see that response a lot when bands put new music out, especially Blink and am always confused. Personally, I’m a fan of several bands that I prefer their older material over the new stuff. But you do you!
