"You can't honestly say any songs from the California era are good."
I can and have.
"It's 40 year old men singing about being "Kings of the Weekend" and writing songs like "Sober" and "She's Out of Her Mind.""
That's funny, you pick two rather normal songs instead of complaining about two 40 year olds singining about building a pool to see naked dudes or saying that they can't get a girl more pregnant. Who reads into Blink lyrics so closely like it's Bob Dylan or some other master song writer? Plus don't mention songs like Misery, Cynical and San Diego when they all contain some rather serious lyrical context. Some stuff is serious and some isn't, that's not new for Blink.
"Furthermore, the lyrics to Parking Lot make no fucking sense. "
Do they need to make sense? The drum work on Parking Lot kicks ass and I think Skiba's vocals rocked that song.
"All the songs are generic garbage that are incredibly predictable and have childishly writen lyrics."
I'll refer you back to Misery, San Diego, 6/8, Los Angeles, Cynical and Bored to Death. I'd love to know what makes any song on California (other than the joke songs) "childish".
"John Feldman's influence on them is destorying the band."
That I don't disagree with. If John just let Mark, Travis and Matt do their thing we would've probably had a much different album but Feldy produced all the deluxe songs as well and so far it's got possibly the best stuff from California.
