Blink-182: Take Off Your Pants and Jacket

Sound — 10
Blink 182 are a punk band (although they have split up). The 3 members are Tom (guitar and vocals), Mark (bass and vocals), Travis (drummer). This album is my second favourite album from Blink 182 (Greatest Hits is my favourite), this is, because it has Rock Show and First Date but it aslo has Story Of A Lonely Guy and Rollercoaster. Rock Show and first date are fast paced songs, but Rollercoaster and Story Of A Lonely Guy are more slow.

Both Tom and Mark sing, so this adds to the whole punk look. Personally I don't think they sound that different in some songs you can't tell who sings which adds to the effect. The lyrics are so so funny, they sing about loads of funny different things, such as getting dumped, prom disasters, and some things a lot ruder. Also the lyrics really go with the mostly fast paced music.

Overall Impression — 10
Like I have said this is my second favourite blink 182 album (the greatest hits is the best). The best songs are The Rock Show, First Date, Stay Together For The Kids, Rollercoaster, Story Of A Lonely Guy and The Anthem Part 2. You can find a lot of the songs on this album on the Greatest Hits as it's such a great album. If I lost it I would definately buy it again (even though I have all the songs on my iPod).

    Ok ok yeah maybe they did get a little poppy but they still rock. and i happen to like First date and The rock show. I don't know why you don't like them but its just my opinion
    i agree with punkrocker4ever you cant expect the same sound from a band constantly i bought the album along with evry other blink album and this one is my favorite simply becuz they tried sumthin different and they sound awesome and they still have some of their old soud the self titled just plain sux though
    This is my favourite album and I own ALL the Green Day , NOFX, blink-182 albums plus a whole bunch of other albums by Good charlotte, The Offspring, Sum 41, Less Than jake, NFG, Fall Out Boy, Millencollin and Lostprophets so that's saying something.
    I'm sorry, but this band sucks. They could at least write songs that acctually mean something."In the car I just can't wait, to pick you up on our very first date Is it cool if I hold your hand? Is it wrong if I think it's lame to dance?" Pretty bad
