Customer Reviews

One of my favorite Blink songs.
A. M. Lewis
This is a must own, especially for people who never got into Blink, but fans will enjoy it just as much.
Wish I Was A Rockstar
Everyone needs a break and I'm happy Blink is getting theirs.

If you're like me and missed the early years of blink, this compilation will give you an idea of how far they've come musically since the days of cutting demos in Scott Raynor's bedroom. This album includes the track "Carousel" which originally came from a demo album done at the end of 1993, before being included on the album "Cheshire Cat" in 1994.

They released three more studio albums, replacing Raynor with the ever-popular Travis Barker.

The songs are listed in chronological order of release, and represent most of their popular singles, even though they weren't all certified hits. Included of course are their biggest trademark songs, 1999's "What's My Age Again" and "All the Small Things" from the album Enema of the State, as well as "Feeling This" and my favorite "I Miss You" from their untitled 2003 album. There are also two "new" songs - "Not Now" recorded for the untitled album, but only included in the UK version as a bonus, and "Another Girl, Another Planet" a cover of the song by British Rock & Roll band "The Only Ones" and the theme song of Travis' reality show "Meet the Barkers".

Although blink-182 is one of the most popular punk/rock groups around, it's uncertain whether there will be any more albums in the future seeing that they are on a "break". This album showcases their best work, and is a good choice, especially if you don't have the earlier albums.

This album is a collection of 15 of Blink 182's greatest hits, one unreleased song (Not Now) and one new song (Another Girl, Another Planet). The songs play in chronological order, based on when they were released. Two songs from Cheshire Cat, two from Dude Ranch, three from Enema of the State, one from The Enema strikes back, three from Take off Your Pants... and four from the self titled album. This collection couldn't be better and really encompasses who Blink 182 were.

1)Carousel- Wow, Tom when he still sounded like Tom. A really great song that old school Blink 182 fans have always known and loved. 9/10

2)M&M's- Probably the most feel good sounding song off of Cheshire Cat, this is one has a bit more mainstream acceptance then Carousel. One of my favorite Blink songs. Mark sings this one. 10/10

3)Dammit- The song that introduced (most of) the world to Blink 182. Probably one of the best teen anthems of all time. Mark sings. 10/10

4)Josie- The second hit off of Dude Ranch wasn't as popular, but certainly had its fair share of fans. Alyssa Milano in the video didn't hurt. Mark sings on this one (with a little help from Tom) 9/10

5)What's My Age Again?- Blink sells out? Whatever, this was a great summer anthem and kicked off the new album at the time. Mark sings this fun song. 8/10

6)All the Small Things- Very poppy, Tom sings a song that lost its luster pretty quickly at the time. Very played out, this song got somewhat annoying. In retrospect it is a funny parody of the boy bands of the time. Tom sings on his first real hit single. 7/10

7)Adam's Song- Blink gets serious. A really intense song, a lot of fans didn't take to Blink's serious side.

Blink-182's Greatest Hits CD falls nothing short of amazing. Blink has been my favorite band since I was in 5th grade and they always will be. First of all, a greatest hits CD does not mean it will be a band's last CD. (Ever hear of Green Day?) I know Blink is on hiatus right now, but I can't imagine the masterminds behind these songs ending the band because of some dumb disagreements. Everyone needs a break and I'm happy Blink is getting theirs. Even if they don't play together again for decades, or ever, I'll always be a huge fan of them. As far as reviewing the songs on this CD I give them all a 5/5. They're all brilliantly written and played and deserve a 5/5, with the exception of Adam's Song, which I give a 6/5. Here's what I think:

1) Carousel- Loved by any true Blink-182 fan, this song is a pure classic. Mark and Tom started writing this the first night they met.

2) M+M's- I love the guitar in this song, and the song overall is smart and easy to fall in love with. This was their first single.

3) Dammit- This is what got the guys noticed. Another classic, this was Blink's first hit and fans still love it. It was also in the movie Can't Hardly Wait.

4) Josie- The ultimate girlfriend song. The video for Josie shows Blink going to high school, Mark's hair is purple, Tom's is platnium blonde, very funny to watch. My favorite line in this song is about the Mexican food from Sombrero just because. I wish I had a guy to bring me food.

5) What's My Age Again?- The lyrics are universally known, whether you like Blink or not. Everyone remembers this song about immaturity, and most of all the video where Blink runs naked through the streets of LA.

This is a pretty good sendoff for Blink 182. A nice blend of singles from the early albums to the more polished recent ones. All the songs are catchy and most were hit singles. I did notice that Anthem Part 2 was omitted for some reason. The two unreleased bonus songs are good, but nothing spectacular. I liked this group and will be sad to see them go seperate ways. Check out their site to find out all of the bandmembers solo projects.
