Is nostalgia playing a factor here? Sure. But I really do think this record does a fantastic job of painting a character portrait of an early-to-mid 00's high school boy. The feelings and immaturity are honest, the ideas are unfiltered, and sure, it's not the edgiest thing in the world, but neither is the average teenager.

Here, I think, is where Blink got the best, most accurate control of their portrayal of their subjects' emotions.

"Take Off Your Pants and Jacket" screams sell-out to me. I have to give Blink credit though, they know how to write hits. The "pop" in pop rock has been turned to 11, and there's no turning back.

Notable Songs: "Anthem Part Two"; "First Date"; "The Rock Show"; "Stay Together For The Kids"; "Every Time I Look For You"; "Please Take Me Home"
