Kay is right.
I think it's good that blink got back together. It probably should have been a 'last hurah' type of thing though tbh. They could have reunited for the tour and one last album to give the fans a proper ending, heal their legacy, and reconnect as friends. They chose the full-on path though, which could have been good but it still just kind of feels like a drawn out reunion. blink is still a good, fun, live band which is why they should still continue to occasionally reunite to tour but creatively they are much better with their other projects. Tom's said that blink is mostly a way for him to revisit his past, and while that doesn't speak for all three of them, everything has kind of felt like a nostalgia fest despite DED being an effort at moving forward.
My opinion is that blink only has two things left to really do:
1. Play as many shows as they'd like while they've still got it. My opinion is that it'd be cool if they manage to go to places they've never been with a lot of fans like South America, and just get as many people as possible to have the chance to see them perform.
2. Make one last album. I wouldn't even say this but they've already promised one and I don't really feel like DED is a good swan song for the band. They should spend as much time as they need to make it actually good rather than rush a bunch of mediocre albums out, which will just add to the drawn-out reunion feel of their current state.
The fact is that blink has mostly run its course. Tom is better suited for AVA (which is now producing better music than blink in a surprising turn of events), Travis is better suited for The Transplants and his many hip-hop collaborations, and Mark will probably be suited for whatever projects he takes on, though we'll have to wait and see what Nothing and Nobody sounds like.
You all know I'm right.
blink has had an excellent career and it's almost time for them to pass the torch to the newer, younger bands anyway. I'm not even sad about this.
