“here is the 1% criticism i have heard: sounds too much like old blink, sounds too much like new blink, sounds too much like +44, sounds too much like angels, too much mark, too much tom, travis’s drumming is amazing, travis sounds like he doesn’t care.”—Mark Hoppus (via fyeahmark)
Let’s start with some background of blink and I.
I first heard of them when i was in 3rd grade (I don’t know how old you are in that grade lol) I was at the hard rock cafe downtown (Cleveland) and right before we left, all the small things came on. I wouldn’t leave till I found out who they were.
First cd I got was the mark Tom and travis show. Not the best choice for a 3rd grader to choose haha.
But since then, I’ve been their fan for 10+ yrs. I fucking love them. No matter what. When the self titled cd came out, I loved it. It was more serious than their past cds but that’s what happens. Musicians grow and mature.
I am so pissed off by the fans since up all night was released yesterday. Some fans you guys are.
Yeah, it sounds like ava only when tom sings, BUT…if you pay attention, the same techniques were used in the self titled…and that was before angels and airwaves was started. If you can’t respect that they canceled their Europe tour to make this cd and put more into it, and you guys are assuming by one damn song the cd will be shit…shame on you. Also, for you fans out there jumping to conclusions that they were going to sound like the enema of the state era blink, that’s your own fault. You shouldn’t have expected them to sound like they did….how many fucking years ago?!
I’m aggravated because i know so many people who hate them and sorry, they just so happen to be my favorite band. If you have a problem, fuck off, idc. I have a huge variety in music and that is great cause I don’t shelter myself into only likingthe same genre and shit. How boring.
Tomorrow at 5…. My love for blink will forever be on my arm. And thats the end of that. Dammit.
