There are a lot of strong songs on this album, mixing their old sound with experimentation and a more mature subject matter. First this is the more 'emo' Blink not the 'Let's get drunk and party' Blink, so get into that mindset or more than likely you'll hate it. After Midnight is easily one of my favorite songs on the album, the dynamic between Tom and Mark works well here even if both come off detached from each other. Snake Charmer tells an interesting story of love, the subject matter is a bit young but it's written very well. My favorite song off the album has to be Hearts All Gone. It's Mark at his best vocally, it's all of them at their best musically, it's perfectly produced, the lyrics are awesome, and it really has an old school Blink feel but again grown up. The interlude that proceeds it also works really well and manages to be listenable unlike some of the interludes of the previous album. The song Wishing Well really sounds like something they would have made 10 years ago and yet still fit with the new sound same with MH 4.18.2011. Fighting The Gravity is probably the most experimental song, there's really no way to describe it, it's weird but it works.
If the album has a weakness it's that it feels like it's influenced too much by Tom Delonge's side project Angels And Airwaves. It feels like the Blink-182 we all grew up loving has taken a back seat. It's nice to see the band mature and branch out, and it does work but it feels like much of the old sound has been compromised. Honestly when it comes down to it, it's different. I ended up really liking it once I got past the fact that it's such a drastic change in sound. I suggest fans of Blink-182, pop-punk fans looking for a less juvenile sound, and A&A fans take a listen, you might be pleasantly surprised.
