Sound — 10
This is a fairly old Blink album. There is only one song without distortion or overdrive which is fantastic by the way. I don't believe there is any story attatched to this album and if there is it is a very well disguised story. I think Blink have created their own unique sound that many modern-punk bands today still use. Songs like All The Small Things, Aliens Exist and What's My Age Again have a great original punk sound in them and have had a great influence on punk music in general.

The lyrics of Enema Of The State are fantastic. There rude, don't make sense and are just really great fun to listen to. Songs like Dysentery Gary and The Party Song are just really pathetic but mix really well with the fast thrashing punk Blink play. Although the album does not have a story line some of the songs have storys in them selves. Dysentery Gary: making fun of a sick person. What's My Age Again: acting immature on a date. Just little storys like that in the song make the album a lot more fun to listen to. At the time Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus didn't exactly have much singing ability.
Overall Impression — 10
I think this was Blink 182's best album. In Blink 182 their self-named album they start trying to become serious musicians and I think the real original Blink is in Enema Of The State. I don't think there is a best song on this album. I reckon it's the real Blink and that's when they were at their best in their careers. There is nothing I hate about this album. I've learnt every single part of every song and listened to the CD heaps and heaps. If this album was stolen or lost I would not even hesitate to buy a new one, it is a fantastic album and I would advise anyone to buy it.
