Product Description

Take Off Your Pants and Jacket

Amazon.co.uk

By their fifth album, most bands have grown up, but not American brat-punks Blink 182. Take Off Your Pants And Jacket is more of the same three-minute bursts of immaturity and deliberate stupidity that made their previous album, Enema of the State, an international hit. It's just that now the band too often cross the line from adolescent angst to annoying whingeing. The album opener "Anthem Part Two" is an us-versus-them call to arms against the "adults" of the world--"Kids are victims in this story/Drown the youth with useless warnings"--which seems to overlook the fact that by now, Blink 182 are probably closer in age to their A&R man than their average fan; "Happy Holidays You Bastard" and "F**k A Dog" resort to cheap mom-and-dad jokes and obvious shock tactics. Even the more sentimental moments are ruined by clumsy and overly simplistic lyrics ("Stay Together for the Kids", a tale about divorce from the child's perspective, whines, "I see them every day/We get along so why can't they?"). It's not all bad news, though: first single "Rock Show", "Reckless Abandon" and "Give Me One Good Reason" are as catchy as anything they've ever done, while "Story of a Lonely Guy" and "Roller Coaster" hint at what this trio are capable of as songwriters when they put their minds to it. --Robert Burrow

I have evry blink album, and ive read about 20 reviews and they're all wrong- trust me. This album is easily on a whole blinks best yet. some songs like 2stay togethjer foer the kids" do remind you a bit of other songs like "adams song" and the album does get worse towards the end- but the overall quality of the songs beats any other album. Story of a lonely guy is an example of true genius, and toms acoustic "what went wrong" is full of teen angst that only blink can truly muster. First date is just a true punk classic and "rock show" is another tune which kicks out. Many have said blink arent punk any more after enema, but they soooo are, its just evolved from the total raw sound of cheshire cat into a far more musically accomplisghed sound, still punk, but with more talent. This album kicks ass, you may want songs like !"dammit" and "josie" to help lift it towards the end but it is worth every penny. The songs are not all as good as the best of blink, but all the songs are up there. top stuff

'Take off Your Pants and Jacket' was the first album when Blink started to write more mature songs. Earlier albums were more for humour and had funny songs. This album has those, and is still classic Blink 182, but shows a more mature side to the boys. In my opinion, this is a good thing, as they have come out with their best album. Tracks:

'Anthem Part 2': Good opener to the album. A classic Blink song with humour and a great one to sing along to. 4/5

'Online Songs': Another sorn with 'Josie' in it. Great song. Quick and to the point, its funny but slightly serious at the same time. 4/5

'First Date': Classic Blink track. Funny but you can hear how true it is aswell. One of Blink's best songs. 5/5

'Happy Holidays, You Bastard': A 42 second fast paced song with no real meaning, but it is hilarious. 5/5

'Story of a Lonely Guy': Great song. One of Blink's more mature songs that has real meaning to it and is very true. 5/5

'The Rock Show': What a brilliant song this is. One of Blink's best ever. Everyone knows this. Its short, but fast paced and addictive. A song that has to be sung along with. 5/5

'Stay Together For The Kids': Beautiful track that really shows how much Blink have matured. Really goes to the hard and you can hear the angst in the lyrics. 5/5

'Roller Coasters': Obvious Blink track that is simple but heartfelt. 4/5

'Recless Abandon': One of the weakest tracks on the album in my opinion. Its ok, but its nothing different. 3/5

'Every Time I Look For You': Ok track with a good chorus but is pretty weak apart from that. 3/5

'Give Me One Good Reason': Not one of Blink's best known songs but I think this is really great.

I bought this CD the day it came out and having listened to it over the past few months so i think im well equipped to review it. When i first listened to the album online songs was one of my favourites but now i see it as one of the weaker tracks(but there really are no bad tracks!!!).
This album takes the pop sensibilities and irresistable melodies of enema and combines it with the fast punky hooks and riffs of dude ranch. This is the perfect combination for blink and the result is their best most balanced and diverse album to date. In the past they have been criticised for lacking variety in their songs and sound but this is no longer the case. You have the pure fast pop punk of gorgeous lead off single "rock show" and the catchy bouncy "first date" that reminds me of all the small things and could have been wrote with radio and mtv in mind.
They also have some touching slower mid tempo melancholy rock songs like "stay together for the kids" and "story of a lonely guy". Prime examples of their evolution into great songwriters who can write simple upbeat bouncy rock songs are "everytime i look for you" and "roller coaster". Also they have their typically punk rebellious anthems-"anthem part2" (no pun intended) and gimme 1 good reason". To cap it all off they have 2 gorgeous bonus songs in "time to break up" and "what went wrong". If youve ever been dumped or broken it off with a girl/boy you will relate to time to break up so much. The second bonus is a tongue in cheek acoustic ode to billy joe armstrongs good riddance and is rather good. If you liked the hilarious country song or family reunion from the live album then happy holidays and f**k a dog will cater to your needs.

I've been a blink fan since the early years but I have to say it doesn't get any better than Take Off Your Pants & Jacket. It combines the energy of earlier albums (eg Dude Ranch & Enema) with a bit of the maturity that was obvious in their last album. It also features my 2 favourite songs of all time. Story Of A Lonely Guy speaks on so many levels to anyone who has ever been in love with a girl and every kid of divorce should listen to Stay Together For The Kids. I waited through the night outside to be the first with my hands on it & it was worth every second! They really achieved punk/pop/rock perfection with this one!
