I never have given a shit about leaks.... wait a fucking couple months and just buy the thing you fucking cheap bastards. I'm broke as fuck being unemployed and all. I saved my twenty bucks that I'll need for the album.
fuck fuck shit fuck
I don't see the correlation there. People don't listen/download leaks to not buy the album. Those who do, will do it when the album comes out anyway. I imagine a lot of people listen because it's there, and they're really curious. For me, personally, I'm listening to see if it's worth buying. I don't care enough about many bands to listen to their leaks, but for on-the-fence bands like Blink 182 and Green Day, it really helps to get a sense of the album before it comes out. The last one I listened to was "21st Century Breakdown". Dodged a bullet there.
Unfortunately it is. The rest of the album sounds pretty much like AVA. Son, I'm dissapoint.

Fuck it now...I kinda liked the album and will probably buy it.
Are you sure, man? I see it listed in the tracklist, but in all of the Neighborhoods playlists I found on YouTube, I didn't see it in with the rest of the album. So you may be right. But it would be weird if they have "Hearts All Gone (Interlude)" with no "Hearts All Gone". And if that's the case, I won't be buying it.

It is there, together with the Interlude. But it's a rarity by the means of no other song sounding like Heart's All Gone.

So what's the verdict on this one?
I can't get into it. It could be worse I guess, I kind of like the album, but it's nothing that would strike me as particulary awesome. I can't even say it's because I've grown out of their style, because this isn't their old style, not really. It's different. Not neccessarily bad, just different.
I'm sure it'll get tons of praise from their most devoted fans. You know, it being a "new Blink-182 album, z0mG and stuff". But it's just not as fun to listen to as some of their old albums. They lost their whole identity by leaving the fun out of it. Heart's All Gone can't save the album, as it's a "rarity" (energy-wise). Neither can other songs that I like from it. So it's not bad, but not great either.
edit: Actually it all works a bit better if you don't think of it as of a Blink-182 album.
edit2: Travis steals the album. Which is a good thing.

So all the reactions to the album didn't make me particularly excited for this... and yeah, it's pretty bad. It simply doesn't sound like Blink 182. I don't think it sounds TOO much like AVA, but it reminds me a lot of the self-titled album. I guess Take Off Your Pants will remain the last good thing Blink released together.
Edit: so far, I kinda like Snake Charmer... and the Heart's All Gone interlude is really nice. And of course, I like Heart's All Gone. The first four songs of the album are crap, though.
