Given how massive Blink were when they released the un-titled album back in '03 it must have been hard to return after so long. All the members have played in different bands since then and I think the different styles mix very well in this album. My initial reaction was that it had some good bits but was a bit hit and miss. However I think it really does grow on you, particularly with regards to the lyrics. In terms of other albums it probably follows on more closely from the un-titled album than previous ones (as to be expected really) so if you were a fan of that album this one is a must buy. Another thing that is obviously different is Tom's vocals which are a bit love-hate, I personally love them but I know people who disagree ;).

Track by track run-through:

1. Ghost on the Dance floor 8/10 - Begins with a great intro which is kinda AVA reminiscent but definitely blink inspired. The lyrics are very good; they're (in vague terms) about remembering someone who has died. Lyrically it follows on nicely from Not Now which was the ending track from the un-titled album. However the guitar riff and vocals in the chorus I feel are lacking in melody which can make the song seem a bit monotonous on the first listen.

2. Natives 9/10 - One of my favourites from the album. The intro is very similar to 'Young London' by AVA but with a nice driven bass underneath it. Tom sings fast-paced verses with have a great dark feel and really kick start this album off as being different to previous works. Mark's chorus vocals are very good and the exchange between him in the chorus and Tom in the verses works very well.

Before we get into each song. Buy the deluxe version. It flows much better and is obviously how the band intended the album to be heard.

Ghost on the Dancefloor (8.5/10)
Really fun catchy opening track. Begins with an infectious poppy guitar riff made for dancing. Lyrically it is about hearing a song that reminds you of time spent with a close friend who has died. The chorus is very anthemic, and Mark's harmonies highlight a major asset blink have over most bands, two sings whose vocals work wonderfully together.

Natives (9/10)
Natives then explodes, showcasing for the first time (but thankfully not the last) the utterly incredible talents of Mr Travis Barker. The opening riff is reminiscent of Young London by Angels and Airwaves, but the pace of the song are much more punk rock than AvA. The verses are delivered quickly with a chugging drive by Tom, and it is good to hear him singing something a little more frenetic than we have been used to. Mark takes chorus vocal duties, keeping the theme of heavy guitars and dark lyrics.

Up All Night (7.5)
You've probably all heard this already. Works better in the context of the album than as a first single. The opening riff is quite cool and used again as an outro-breakdown. Nice how they trade lines throughout the verses. Again, lyrically dark, but delivered over quite light guitars (apart from the riff), with strong stadium rock sensibilities. Not a disappointment, but if you weren't a fan of this, do not fear. It is not a highlight.

After Midnight (8/10)
A slow love song. Beautifully written, with Tom taking the verses and Mark the chorus. Quite light, dreamy guitar lines play beneath the singing. The tempo is not too dissimilar to I Miss You, though it is not as catchy.

Everything positive that could be said about Neighborhoods already has been said. Clearly the album could have been better, but given the situation the band was in, the fact that they still churned out an album of this quality shows just how good they are. Ghosts On The Dance Floor, Up All Night, After Midnight and Wishing Well are personal favourites, but one song that really should have been on the regular version is Even If She Falls. Clearly, Deluxe Editions require something to lure people in, but had this track been on the regular version, there would have been no need for a deluxe version as the inclusion of that song would have given this album 5 stars.

Nonetheless, very enjoyable and with the release of Dogs Eating Dogs, we can surely look forward to something brilliant from Blink next time.

I have to be honest and admit it took me quite a while to really get into Neighbourhoods. First thoughts were that it was decent but not up to the level of their previous work and perhaps Blink were past their sell-by date.
However, after getting back into it a couple of months back it has turned out to be one of my favourite albums of all-time.
Neighbourhoods has all the energy of earlier records but with a maturity which has obviously been brought on by the dark times the band have experienced in recent years.
If I had to pick one particular song out then 'Natives' is pure class and I am surprised it has not received a lot more exposure than it has.
If you like Blink 182 then stick with this album for a while and maybe come back to it if you were not initially blown away. Enjoy!
