Editors’ Notes

Following its 2009 reunion, it took Blink 182 a few years to deliver Neighborhoods. So the fact that the 2012 five-song EP Dogs Eating Dogs took less than two months to record and release is a great sign. The opening “When I Was Young” builds anticipation with a 40-second intro of ambient electronica before the band's propulsive punk-pop is warmed up and running. The song reminds us of Tom DeLonge’s strength in contrasting sunny, catchy melodies with downtrodden lyrics—the ones here muse on what a drag it is getting old. Fans of Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus’ post–Blink 182 band +44 will find trace elements of that group's “Lycanthrope” in the title track (though some parts of the chorus sound somewhat influenced by Alkaline Trio). Similarly, “Disaster” contains leftover DNA from DeLonge’s post–Blink 182 project Angels & Airwaves. This is first noticeable in the opening analog tones, which sound like manipulated radio frequencies bleeding into pulsing rhythms; they suddenly morph into Blink 182's unmistakably punchy guitar pop.

Customer Reviews

Review on the Previews

None of the songs sound like they belong on Chesire Cat, Dude Ranch, Enema of The State, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, Box Car Racer, AVA, +44, The Transplants, Neighborhoods...these songs have entirely new elements but it doesn't disappoint. Definately buy this album. It still sounds like Blink-182. Just another step up!

"I guess this is growing up"

You can tell that they all have their new influences. Tom with Angels and Airwaves, Mark with +44 and producing for all kinds of bands, and Travis even with his rap drumming career that he has going. You could even hear it in Neighborhoods. But you can't expect them to keep writing about high school and keep up with these fast punk anthems you would hear on albums like Dude Ranch. They have grown up. I mean they are almost 40! Times change, people change, music changes. Even though this is a drastic change from their first albums, they still can write amazing music. But it reminds me of Boxcar Racer. That's what I like most. They even said Boxcar was a major influence behind the album. Another win for Blink.
