Yeah the post pop punk sound was way better. I was just excited at first because this at least sounds like a coherent song compared to a lot of Neighborhoods. I don't think it's horrible though, just cheesy and plain, and I'm sure the rest won't sound like this (they've been hinting their new music will be heavier and more Box Car Racre/untitled esque than Neighborhoods). This song is hopefully a one off 'experiment' since it's basically a Christmas song.

Just based on the preview, I already don't like this EP. I think Boxing Day is good-ish and Pretty Little Girl sounds like it will be my favorite out of the 5. I don't like the first two songs.

-When I Was Young sounds way too much like Dry Your Eyes (Not sure if its that one, but its definitely just an AvA song with Mark singing). Chorus sounds amazing though, so thats a good note.

-Dogs Eating Dogs was promising until they got to the "Dogs eating dogs, dogs eating dogs,dogs eating dogs" lines. They sound ugly to me. The chorus does sound pretty good, especially the break the first one with the tremolo on the guitars<333

-Disaster sounds okay I guess, but again, it reminds me too much of AvA. Mark's vocals do add a nice touch. Not too much else to say about it.

This is all coming from a guy who has purchased and loved every Blink, BCR, +44, and AvA album. Still love the band, but I don't know if this will do it for me.

EDIT: Its also been pointed out to me that the verse of When I Was Young sounds like Everything's Magic. I hate being that guy this time around, but I'm getting tired of all of the re-used stuff. As a bonus I made it kind of easier on the eyes.

I just saw there was a youtube link with song samples. I'm listening now.

Yeah probably. I kind of like the first three songs though.

Also keep in mind that the were written very quickly and this was all rushed just a few weeks ago to be out by Christmas as a 'bonus' of sorts. The full length might be way better, but it'll probably be like this. I'm a fanboy so I'll listen to it either way, although my fanboyism is decreasing.

I love it!

It just annoys me, I love the verses much more than the chorus. It's kind of an anticlimax.

What is up with the weird style of the album cover?

When I was told this should have stayed dead I thought you meant the band, not the thread. I should have realised that was a hint to stop posting.

I'm going to get shit for this but I kind of like the EP. There's good moments (like the Disaster intro) but overall it feels uninspired. If it felt inspired it could have been pretty good. \_(ツ)_/ With that said I don't see myself listening to it unless I'm on a blink binge and I get bored of the untitled album.

Also the artwork is pretty lame.

Eh, it was 2.50 on iTunes and I've had it on repeat. It grew on me.

The rap on on 'Pretty Little Girl' absolutely ruins it though. I know Tom and Travis especially like hip hop, but come on...
