Everyone loves a party, so most people love a party band. That's why SoCal's
Blink-182 have enjoyed a relatively long life in the ephemeral world of punk
rock: They know how to make being pissed off sound as inviting as the pop of a
beer-can tab. Bassist-vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist-vocalist Tom Delonge and
drummer Travis Barker have a swell time on their third album, singing about
sexual frustration ("Dumpweed"), alienation (the power-pop-y "All The Small
Things") and the sucky, suicidal state of the world (the piano-laced "Adam's
Song"). The minimalist rat-a-tat-tat rhythms never falter; the guitar boings up
and down like a sonic Superball. It's all harmless but still gnarly enough to
foment the kind of anti-everything rebellion that spawned rock & roll way back
in the day. Sometimes feeling good doesn't demand more than a sense of
collective ennui or a "bouquet of clumsy words/A simple melody" ("Going Away To
College"). Blink-182 have the formula down, and for that, if nothing else, more
power to 'em.
