Notes:
Blink-182 is the eponymously-titled fifth studio album by the American pop punk band Blink-182. It was produced by Jerry Finn, and was released on November 18, 2003 through Geffen Records. Recorded throughout 2003, Blink-182 marks a departure from the band's earlier work, infusing experimental elements into their usual pop punk sound, inspired by lifestyle changes (the band members all became fathers before the album was released) and side projects.

Owing largely to pre-release hype about the revamped sound the band would display on this release, there is some debate as to whether the album was intended to be untitled (so as to discourage preconceptions and represent a new beginning) or self-titled. Amongst music publications and online stores it is most commonly referred to as being self-titled.

It was first released on CD, cassette, and for digital download in 2003. It was the first Blink-182 album released immediately for digital download outlets. Each CD was an enhanced CD, providing extra content (in this case, home-made music videos). In 2004, a European special edition collected the videos and many more in a CD/DVD package, in addition the original album. In 2010, independent label Mightier Than Sword released the album for the first time on vinyl (a very limited re-press followed in 2011). In 2015 the album was rereleased on cassette by SRC Vinyl.

For a Hot-Topic repress, this one is actually listenable!

For a Hot Topic repress, this is a surprisingly good sounding vinyl! I'm not sure if it's from the actual mastering, since it sounds clear but looks louder than most vinyls I've analyzed (at least in wave format). Etching on side D is BARELY visible, big let down on that part.

Listening to it right now, sounds soo sick. the bass drop in "obvious" almost made my head explode! One of the best sounding vinyls i ever heard.

My review is not on the album - but to air my criticisms on the making of this pressing itself.

A) The first grievance I have is on the inlay of the gatefold - does NOT bode well trying to fit 12 pages on 2 12"x12" spaces. It ends up with the lyrics on one side and the thank yous on the other. The problem is the eight pages (fixed in a 9x9 set with the smiley in the middle) end up being too small, making it hard to read the lyrics and notes on how they were recorded.

B) The etching on Side D is BARELY visible - only being seen in just the right light at the right angle. This could've been solved if the vinyl was thicker and the etching deeper.

C) It's 2014 - yes, this album is a re-issue, but would it have killed them to have a digital download card included?

Other than that, it's a one of a kind item, very beautiful to look at. And of course, the album is great. 3/5

On my version, I haven't got the 15th song : Not Now.
But it is the same barcode
