Album Review: Blink-182: Neighborhoods
I used to love Blink-182 growing up. They and guys like them always sounded like they were on the periphery taking the wind out of how seriously everybody took everything else. "I won't be Home for Christmas" is one of the only Christmas songs I can stand. That and X's rendition of "Jingle Bells"
This album isn't fun. And that was the real reason I liked them. They were a band that knew how to have fun,.
Don't get me wrong the album sounds good. It just sounds good in the same way that Incubus album sounds good. It sounds beautiful in some places, but not fun. There is a difference between a beautiful album and a kick-ass album and this isn't a kick-ass album.
