Review of "Greatest Hits - Blink 182"
Blink 182, an American pop punk band formed in 1992, released a Greatest Hits album in 2005. The band used to be quite popular around the time I was at 6th form, and in fact was one of my brother's favourite bands for a long time. I didn't own any of their albums myself, but I liked quite a few of their songs, so when I had the chance to get hold of their greatest hits album recently for a few pounds on Play.com, I took it.Track Listing
5. What's My Age Again?
6. All the Small Things
7. Adam's Song
8. Man Overboard
9. The Rock Show
10. First Date
11. Stay Together for the Kids
12. Feeling This
13. I Miss You
16. Not Now
17. Another Girl Another Planet
18. I Won't Be Home For Christmas
The album is full of guitar-laden pop punk hits, the highlights being What's My Age Again?, All the Small Things, The Rock Show, First Date and the rather sweet I Miss You. There is also a Christmas song, I Won't Be Home for Christmas, which is marked out by the addition of jangling bells! The lyrics are often quite witty but very 'teenager'. The band has been going for years now - they must be in their late 20s, it must be odd having to act like angsty teens still. Maybe they enjoy it! Apart from the aforementioned songs, a lot of the album sounds quite similar and many tracks just do not stand out. When listening to it I tend to listen to a few of the songs and skip the rest.That said, the album can be obtained quite cheaply from Amazon and other sites so I do recommend it if you ever liked a few of their songs back in the day.
