Song of the Day - Up All Night

Blink-182 - Up All Night
Album: Neighbourhood (2011)

Blink-182 unveiled their new single yesterday and it's... interesting, to say the least. Is this the mature approach to nu-punk? Maybe. Is this any good? Well, it's no 'Dammit' or 'Adam's Song,' but for the most part yes, this is good. The main thing is, it's not complete and utter scheisse, which can happen when a band's been away for a long period of time. You'd think they'd go with a more nostalgic, fun, distinctively 'Blink' single to usher in their return, but this approach works too. If you loved them before 'All The Small Things' sent them to the top of the charts, you're going to enjoy 'Up All Night' (after a few listens). If you loved them after 'All The Small Things,' chances are you won't be checking out Neighbourhood when it's released later in the year.

Rating: 3.5/5
