Whether or not this slightly grown-up iteration of blink lasts more than this one record remains to be seen, but on NINE it feels like the band are finding a new lease of life in the dark days of 2019.

The edges are softened by those pop-punk melodies that still lurk deep in Sum 41’s DNA, but this is certainly not a pop-punk album. The evolution continues, and it remains an impressive thing indeed.

The push-pull between fragile piano and ruptures of psychic static is arresting, but by far Kristin’s most captivating weapon is her voice.

On Metal Galaxy, what little caution they had left has been thrown headlong into a hurricane, and they’re only stronger for it.

What’s come from this period of regrouping is a masterwork of gothic Americana, a record of glass-like fragility and honesty, and wood-hard resolve that’s as beautiful as it is dark and confessional.

In themselves, these lyrical themes already make Fandom a fascinating listen. But coupled with Waterparks’ perfectly-crafted experimental tendencies, Fandom gives back more and more each time.

While Eternal Forward Motion is most definitely a record that sounds like it would spit in your face before punching you, this isn’t simply moping around.

A Different Shade Of Blue is not only a worthy successor to their debut, it eclipses it across the board, and offers more of everything that made that record so compelling.

David Bowie once said, “Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.” It’s BMTH’s innate ability to stay one step ahead, like they do here, that means the future remains firmly theirs.

An album that pushes and challenges its creators and its audience in new ways, the finer details of which will probably take another 13 years to fully unwrap and appreciate.
