The Enema of the State CD is Blink's true culmination of wittyness, catchy licks, and just the right amount of dirty down skate-punk/pop-punk. Songs like Aliens Exist, Adams Song, and Dumpweed steal your eardrums for the duration of the Album. A must buy for true blink fans, this CD is the balance between their old immature selves, and their "mature" musician sides. With craftsmanship and a pinch of rudeness, this is a 9 Album, truly a rock a legend.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics on Enema are simple, but they carry that sharp sting and a bit off humor. They find more "Literate" ways of expressing what Teen Angst truly is. The singing,while not amazing, sticks with you thanks to Mark and Tom's unique voices. The delivery is usually quite good, and even on tracks like Dumpweed, were he practically forces the lyrics out, you can still understand him.
Overall Impression — 9
The Album Enema of the state, while not a masterpiece like Hendrix's Axis:Bold as Love, or any other deep musician, Blink-182 packs a punch worth listening to on this classic Pop/Punk album. If it were stolen, i would go buy this, and all of the other Blink albums.
