This song definitely needed a better chorus, though I can't think of what it could have sounded like. I like the verses and bridge in this song, though I hate the chorus. The long outro (45 seconds of an electronic drum loop) made absolutely no sense in the context of this song which didn't feature any synthesizer; the outro was way too long and drawn out, and it would have been better if this song ended with the final chord being held instead.
You think This is Home and Fighting the Gravity are awesome but Kaleidoscope and Love is Dangerous suck? Before you get all raved up about how it's your opinion, that's completely apparent, but the latter two songs are so patently better written and superior.
Fighting the Gravity lacks itinerary to such a degree that it's almost unlistenable. It doesn't make it cool or experimental, it makes it vexatious, a song like Love is Dangerous is truly experimental but at the same time captures perfectly what we love about blink. Never before have we heard Mark and Tom singing at the same time, which in itself is very peculiar to hear but then we get the timeless gem of call and response singing from two of it's greatest associates! It's utterly ravishing! The bridge is so fucking well written and beautiful then we get one last chorus and then a cool marching drum outro. Honestly I think should it should of been the lead single. Would of done very well I think.
This is Home is just so insipid and banal. It's so agonizingly apparent that it's a "throw-back" song that it's fucking obnoxious. It abruptly halts the album to such a degree that everyone should at the very least loathe its nuisance to the album. It will never cease to astonish me that Snake Charmer is a bonus track and this insufferable piece of tripe is on the standard edition. But Kaleidoscope which perfectly encapsulates AVA Plus 44 and even bit of Travis's drum 'n' bass influences, which in essence is you know, fucking blink 182 sucks? The song has great lyrics from both sides, a meaningful subject matter not just for them but for us the fans as well, great use of piano, great melodys especially from Tom's end, a nifty lil' guitar riff and a very unique outro but you wanted them to do typical guitar ring ending? Yeah no...
No offense but I hope blink don't write songs that cater to fans like you because they would at that point become band of bland banal and bewildering tunes, with a great back catalog which would ultimately turn them into a nostalgia band which they don't deserve.
i get what you're saying (even though i don't agree with any of your points cuz both kaleidoscope and love is dangerous suck) but you don't have to attack the guy. like you said, it's his opinion. he's new to the site. we want to keep members, not scare them off. don't be a jackass, jackass.
