    I'm listening to the song for the first time right now. To my surprise, I very much like it.

    Up All Night sounds like Angels & Airwaves 2, big step back after eponymous in my opinion.

Kinda like when Peter Frampton uses that thing to make his guitar sounds like its talking, or all the distortion on the beastie boys voices throughout their career.

    Retard, it's one thing to like the song and to even enjoy the autotune. It's fine to have a different taste and opinion. But you're talking here to people who've recorded music and know exactly how autotune sounds (namely, randman, raptor, and I... I dunno if anyone else here has done so). Tom's voice (not sure about Mark's... I don't think his is) is definitely autotuned in many parts of the song.

    Yep. With Blink, Tom's voice has always been the unique one, Mark's is pretty generic and bland - but they worked well together. Now Tom's voice is just annoying, and it doesn't sound good against Mark's at all. It's amazing how much his voice changed... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxsyOqpE4KU

    Autotune can be applied in good ways in order to achieve a certain effect; here I think it was just used because Tom can't sing in tune.

    Even though i wasn't exactly thrilled with the single, i'm still planning on checking out the rest of the album
    Same.

    It doesn't sound like auto-tune to me again besides the chorus, it just sounds like his shitty ass singing.

    I dont know what i expected this song too be, much like the RHCP song it reminds me of a b-side from several albums back. Mind you i'm not that into Blink anymore, so im curious as to why i'm even posting on here.

    I'd say pretty much anyone who frequents the Your Band forums are familiar with the effect.

    I never realized it until I spun the album for the first time in ages today, but Adam's Song sounds quite Fugazi-ish.

    This is absolutely amazing. Like hilariously amazing. In the old performance he just sounds like your average terrible singer in a pop-punk band, but in that second performance he sounds like he has a degenerative brain damage problem. I'm not saying "retard" in that way that you make fun of someone, he literally sounds retarded, or like he has been abusing hardcore narcotics for decades, or suffered a stroke.

    Also - Anyone that doesn't think that his voice in that previous link isn't abundantly awash with Auto-Tune is completely deaf. And I can't remember who it was, but never ever compare Peter Frampton to Tom Delonge.

    As I've grown up some. back in the day. I even use myself as an example. reflected on things that happened in the past. I have a better understanding of things now. At least I can admit it now. I have somehow caused this situation by mentioning how I used to act on here. how I've changed. I'm a relatively normal poster now

    I'm interested to hear what the rest of the album sounds like. This was the first song they wrote when they got back together, mainly Tom, so it has a lot of his influence in it. On top of it, I tend to think it has a little more Box Car Racer in it than Angels and Airwaves, but that's just me.


    PS: People were talking about not listening too them because their music is beneath their age levels or some crap. I still listen for nostalgia's sake. Plus, when I want to forget about everything troubling me nothing helps me more than some easy, crappy, blink-182 music. Don't know why.
