Mark Donohue of Nude as the News reviewed blink-182’s new self-titled album. He writes, “While it’s not by any means a good album, ‘blink-182’ it is something of a noble failure, a noticeable turning point for the band. Having exhausted every possible means of masking the their numerous limitations, the blink-182 members have become active participants in the reconstruction of the band’s sound, aided by surprising guests like Roger Manning from Beck’s band, Ken Andrews of Failure, and Robert Smith(!) of the Cure and guided by producer Jerry Finn.”
