A Good, Solid Debut

From the ashes of blink-182, Mark Hoppus (bass and vocals) and Travis Barker (drums) form +44 They’re joined by Craig Fairbaugh (Transplants touring guitarist) and Shane Gallagher (lead guitar, from The Nervous Return). When blink-182 split up in 2005, they said that they were on an “indefinite hiatus”. Now it has become clear that there was a serious falling out between lead singer, Tom Delonge, and the band. The title track has that classic blink-182 style, with a simple but memorable riff and a catchy chorus. The instruments still have that highly processed sound that made blink so popular, while Hoppus’ vocals give the record a more mature edge. Standout tracks include ‘155’, the ballad ‘Little Death’, strong opening track ‘Lycanthrope’, and the song famed for being about Delonge’s split from blink, ‘No It Isn’t’, with the lyric “this isn’t just goodbye, this is I can’t stand you”. The album as a whole appears to take a slightly different direction with the blink-182 sound, but fans will find the progression easy to adjust to. It will be interesting to see which is more successful, Tom Delonge’s Angels & Airwaves, or the long-awaited +44.

Fresh, great, crisp music

Having been a big blink 182 fan for many years I was always going to be excited about this album, however along with the excitement came a slight dread that this album may ruin everything. Plus 44 have made a fabulous album, different from blink but still slightly recognisable. The music is amazing and I hope for many more great albums from them. Marks voice is fantastic and the lyrics are deep. There is a track on here for everyone.

Don't listen to the Kerrang! review

If you are familiar with the magazine Kerrang! and read it frequently then you will know it got rated 2 stars and got the comment "boring." This isn't the case at all. The first song Lycanthrope got straight in there with a catchy riff and a good drum beat to keep the audience listening. It goes on from there with a couple of slower ones but does keep the pace up. Mark Hoppus' lyrics are fabulous. He has now decided to take his voice one step higher and it still remains as strong. In all this is a good album and if you like the later work of Blink 182 (although (+44) hate being compared to them) then you will like this.


Formed: Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Forming during pop-punk trio blink-182's 2005 hiatus, +44 brought blink alums Travis Barker (drums) and Mark Hoppus (vocals/bass) back together as their former bandmate Tom DeLonge went off to form his own band, Angels and Airwaves. Originally billed as a largely electronic-based project, their songs eventually fell instead under the alternative rock umbrella; their name came from the international dialing code to the United Kingdom, where the duo first discussed doing the project. The two initially...
