Everyone loves a party, so most people love a party band. That's why SoCal's Blink-182 have enjoyed a relatively long life in the ephemeral world of punk rock: They know how to make being Pi*** off sound as inviting as the pop of a beer-can tab. Bassist-vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist-vocalist Tom Delonge and drummer Travis Barker have a swell time on their third album, singing about sexual frustration (Dumpweed), alienation (the power-pop-y All the Small Things") and the sucky, suicidal state of the world (the piano-laced "Adam's Song"). The minimalist rat-a-tat-tat rhythms never falter; the guitar boings up and down like a sonic Superball. It's all harmless but still gnarly enough to foment the kind of anti-everything rebellion that spawned rock & roll way back in the day. Sometimes feeling good doesn't demand more than a sense of collective ennui or a "bouquet of clumsy words/A simple melody" ("Going Away to College"). Blink-182 have the formula down, and for that, if nothing else, more power to 'em.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The item was also delayed for weeks so when it arrived and it was the wrong version, it made it not worth the wait.

The record was sealed and even came with a digital download for my Amazon Music library. The media itself was brand new so no hiccups to worry about. This is the “back to black” version, so it’s just a regular black vinyl record.
Overall extremely happy, and so was my brother – even though nobody likes him this year.
There is a mixture of good and bad on the album and there is filler but it all flows so perfectly that the consistent tone marries the whole, making even the lesser tracks inclusive to the entire album. Best tracks are: "Aliens Exist", "What's My Age Again?" , "Adam's Song" and "All the Small Things". They range from party tracks to shoe-gazing, fist-punching anthems.
Their next album ahd better songs but Enema just feels right. It's not just the quality of the tracks that quanlifies an album, it's when it was released and the impact on the world it had at the time. And it was a pretty big crater.
