Ha. That's a fair question. I compare everything to untitled because that's the album that everyone seems to be everyone's favorite (their magnum opus, if you will), and, by comparing everything to it, I'm trying to show that it's actually not that good of an album, seeing as I think it's horrible. That's all.
As far as Neighborhoods goes, I view it as just a worse version of untitled. So I don't even bother talking about it. Ironically, it has one of my all-time favorite Mark Hoppus songs of all time .... M.H. Like. That song is fucking amazing. It feels like old blink and just feels good listening to it. The only thing that bugs me is the intro. And the word "bug" is a little strong, too.
So, yah, Neighborhoods is just untitled but worse.
And Yodda, it is a big deal that my wife likes blink hahahaha She's hated them FOR YEARS. Like. HATED. It's just so profoundly insane that she literally took the CD to listen to it in her car. It's just mind blowing.
I was hanging on by a little thread.
Just minutes before I was on a mountain.
I screamed "I can see all."
The ground broke from the sound.
It was all built on nothing.
Caution: the solid ground that you are on will slide from under you.
