Box Car Racer was the shit! Such an awesome band that made an incredible album. I wish BCR would make another album together. But I dont think Tom could sound like his old young self anymore. That was the one dissapoinment about Neighborhoods was how it wasnt really blink-182 sounding.

Oh i think Neighborhoods was blink sounding alright but the album just felt like they threw it together over a few weeks, like they didn't use any of the two years they had to record it to actually work on it. The songs felt really under-produced and some songs felt wayyy to Mark-ish or Tom-ish, songs like Fighting the Gravity and Hearts All Gone sound like Tom didn't put 10 minutes of work into them, all Mark songs. I still really like the album but it could easily have been lightyears better if they'd just put more work into it..

Yeah I think they should do that for the next album, they should stop doing the other things keeping them busy (AVA,Hoppus on Music, Travis's hiphop stuff) and focus on making a great blink sounding record, working on the songs in a rehearsal room or something, instead of sending the ideas back and forth and adding stuff separately, I bet it could be better than Neighborhoods.
