Let me first say that I love this record. Sure it's not Dude Ranch, hey, it's not even Self-titled; this is a different beast.
This album starts off where Self-titled left off but the mature lyrics and song writing don't come off as forced. This is what blink is now and they aren't apologetic about it in any sense. Through out middle school and high school I held Dude Ranch it the highest light. It wasn't until a couple years ago I realized that Self-titled was a great record but now I am going to say that this is definitely the best blink record hands down. Sure, there are a couple of songs that drop the ball a bit (ie. "Snake Charmer" and "Love is Dangerous") but "Wishing Well", "Ghost on the Dance Floor", "Hearts All Gone", and "M.H. 4.18.2001" make up for the few stumbles.
I am really stoked to see where these guys go next and as a life long blink fan I can say that I am proud to have these gentlemen back.
