There are so many huge choruses on this.
I wish I had this when Summer started :(
A lot of this honestly feels like more of a fall/autumn record to me.
Darkside would of been such a bomb ass surprise on the album.
still thinking "Black Rain" and "No Heart" really could have been Skiba only songs. but the fact that that's my biggest complaint with this (other than the closer not doing much for me) is an indicator that they really brought the goods this time around. "Heaven" is like a cousin to "Misery" and I'm chuffed about it
-Album feels fresh, like a natural progression, unlike so many acts out there
-Every song feels like it could be a single
-Glad they did 15 tracks instead of 10
-Skiba adds even more Skiba to the album
-Glad people aren’t complaining about producers at the moment
-No one is missing joke songs
-Based on the end product it was a wise decision for them take extra time to make the record they wanted
-I want to hear the songs left off Nine too or deluxe or whatever because I bet they are good
-The energy is fantastic and I’m guess that Travis contributions have a lot to do with it
-Mark’s released a lot of music this year and that makes me happy considering where this band was years ago (pre California)
-I like when people have different favourite tracks on an album and that will be the case here
God I've listened to this a lot in the last 8 hours. My top 5 as of now:
Pin the Grenade
No Heart to Speak Of
Least favorites: Run Away & Happy Days
If I had one complaint, it would be that the album reminds me a lot of California Deluxe, but... most of these songs still slap, so.
A joke song would have really hurt this. So glad they decided not to include any this go round.
Pin the Grenade, Hungover You, and No Heart to Speak of should have been lead singles for sure
Still haven't listened, going to wait til release but I'm surprised people are surprised that it's better then California. Granted, I guess some people hold that album in high esteem but I certainly did not. And if you compare the pre-release singles from both albums I think it's pretty clear which are the stronger songs, at least to me. So I'm happy to see that this album appears to be as good as I hoped it would be!
Just finished it right now. Actually pretty good, will be spinning it quite a bit. Nice to have a good album with Skiba and it makes me think I’ll never listen to California again haha.
Unfortunately blink just doesn’t hit me the way they used to, but that has nothing to do with writing. I just don’t really listen to this kind of music anymore.
Adrenaline is still the best song Mark has been involved in this year.
Yeah California set the bar pretty low. There isn't a single song on there with a hook nearly as good as anything on here
Think the closer is my favorite.
I really hope blink does a "real" NINE tour next year, where they get to bust out the new deep cuts and such.
I hope they move to smaller venues they can sell out fairly easily next tour, so pop-punk kids can pop off, lol.
I really wasn't expecting a "breakup" album from them with this, but that's the impression I get from all of these songs. I really can't get over how great this album is.
I really dig ransom haha, that chorus is sooo Feldmann (not in a bad way).
Hungover you is my favorite so far,
I love the chorus to Run Away.
I stand with @BTDandFeelingThis , I'm not listening until the release date
Super glad to hear Skiba kills it though
Travis does some amazing work here.
California had some songs I really like but, as a record, it just was flat.
This is a step up in pretty much every direction. No "na na nas" every song. No joke songs. Diversity between the songs and a ton of little details on songs instead of the most straight rock possible.
My only complaint so far are the lyrics. I know Blink 182 was never known for that but I feel they could do better than this. It's better than California of course but I feel they can push that aspect further next time.
I’ve had the chorus to ‘Heaven’ in my head all morning
Not sure if this was supposed to be sarcastic...
Deleted the leak. Listened to it twice front to back and some songs a couple more times.
Will listen to it again on release.
