Blink 182 Neighborhoods is FINALLY here
I used this as my background music for my sports blog, and I must say that after waiting years for new Blink material, it's great to hear. I think this is a great sequel for the last album, and doesn't feel out of place with the Blink catalog, which is something I feared. Knowing Tom was busy with Angels and Airwaves, Travis was busy with his solo album, and Mark was busy moving away to London, I am surprised when push came to shove, Blink got this album done. They've been together again for about three years, so obviously, new material took longer than fans wanted, and the band probably anticipated. All the tracks really seem to gel well together, and I am a big fan of Up All Night and After Midnight. A pleasant surprise was the song, MH 4.18.2011, something that feels like it could have been back on Dude Ranch or Enema of the State.
