Carousel (10/10) - Possibly the best blink-182 ever. It is the first song Tom and Mark wrote (thought it wasn't put on Flyswatter).
TV (6/10) - Nice little riff, but I prefer the demo tape version of TV better.
Strings (7/10) - People hate this song, but I think it is cool. It really shows how sick Mark was when they were recording.
Fentoozler (6/10) - Eh...not for me.
Time (8/10) - Was on the Flyswatter demo tape. Awesome ska-like riff at the beginning.
Romeo and Rebecca (7/10) - I prefer the Cheshire Cat version over the Buddha version.
21 Days (10/10) - Third best song on the album. This is NOT a filler song by any means. Classic blink-182 song right here.
Sometimes (8/10) - Quick little song with nice hook.
Point of View (7/10) - Was also on the Flyswatter demo. Great short song.
My Pet Sally (8/10) - Love this song for some strange reason.
Reebok Commerical (8/10) - Also on Flyswatter demo. Another great song.
Toast and Bannanas (8/10) - Better than the Cheshire Cat version.
The Girl Next Door (10/10) - Second best song on the CD. Love this as much as I do the Screaching Weasel's version.
Don't (9/10) - Another great song and nice way to end the CD.
Blink 182 is a trio that is looked down by many. Because of their immaturity, their sellout music. I, however, have grown to enjoy blink 182's music. Buddah was blink's first. It isn't an actual album, though. This was recorded on a tape back in 1993, and then converted to compact disc. although Mark and Tom sound younger and aren't in tune, this is an album showing off their musicianship. okay, so they aren't the best musicians, but, on this album they showed the world that they can play more than three chords.
1. carousel- Blink 182 first song. this is an incedible song. if you disagree with me, watch them perform it. the buddah version is better than the cheshire cat version. 10/10
2. TV- call me crazy, but i like this song. 8/10
3. strings- cool song. 9/10
4. Fentoozler- another cool song. 9/10
5. Time- filler. 4/10
6. romeo and rebecca- another song that shows off blink's musicianship. it has a pretty cool intro, and the song progresses with Tom singing slowly to faster. 8/10
7. 21 Days- filler 4/10
8. sometimes- cool song, shows that blink can actually play pretty fast. 7/10
9. Point of view- this one just doesn't do it for me 2/10
10. My Pet sally- okay 5/10
11. reebok commercial- okay 5/10
12. toast and bananas- cool song 7/10
13. Girl next door- really good song, i'm not sure if it is an original song or a cover, but it is great. 9/10
14. Don't- not too fond of this 8/10
so, listen up, everyone, this is an album showing blink in their early stage. if you REALLY want to hear blink's good earlier music, start off with cheshire cat. then, go ahead and get this one. i just think that blink got a bad rep because of the music they make, it being punk/pop. i think that they don't deserve it, groups like Good Charlotte,and Simple Plan deserve it. Blink has been around for a good while, and have good earlier songs.
Here are the songs:
NOTE: *= also on cheshire cat
**= also on flyswatter demo
great song w/ great lyrics. Also a great guitar riff.
vocals are kind of messed up, but I like it.
hmm... the other version is much better, but this is good too. Nice drums and guitar.
once again, other version is better.
excellent song...wow. Great guitars and backing vocals, and lyrics! A classic blink song. best on album.
*Romeo & Rebecca: 10/10
a nice change of pace. great solo in the beginning.
21 days: 10/10
second best on album. Notice this is only availible on This album. When I was looking at the lyrics, this songs lyrics stood out to me, so this was the first song I heard from the album.
A faster song, but kind of short...
**Point of view: 10/10
cool guitar thing in the beginning. It's way too short though.
My Pet Sally: 9/10
great drum intro makes this a great song.
**Reebok commercial: 10/10
I think this was the first blink 182 song ever. Another great drum intro.
*Toast and bannanas: 9/10
The girl next door: 10/10
a great cover song.
cool bass intro.
Total: 133/140= 5 stars
Hmm... there's not much more to say... well... just buy this album. It's really underrated.
1.Carousel-Great opener with a realy cool bass part.9/10
2.TV-a fast song that is really good aside from Mark's vocals, but that doesnt really take away from the song.9/10

6.romeo & rebecca-a very nice song.9/10

8.Sometimes-fast and a really cool guitar part, but not that great besides that.7/10
9.Point of view-cool song with an impressive solo considering how easy the stuff hes playing now is.9/10
10.My pet sally-strange song.7/10
11.Reebok comercial-this is pretty cool doesnt make much sense but then again it has a cool guitar solo.9/10

This CD is basically Dude Ranch with lower quality. There are only one or two additional songs, so why waste your time and money? Go out and buy Dude Ranch instead.Published on July 4 2004 by Jason
this album was just a montage of blink in their early days. i think that they showed more musicianship here than in their later works. Read morePublished on May 22 2004 by Timothy Turner

Yeah, yeah, I know they suck, I know they're barely above the level of a boyband, and I know that they sure as hell aren't punk. Read morePublished on March 8 2004 by Bill
I agree with punkhardcore and punx4life. This band here is about having fun and playing cool guitar solo's. Dude ranch and beyond they lost something. Read morePublished on Jan. 28 2004 by Tnahpellee
This is one of the best Blink 182 albums. This is the real Blink 182 before they sold out. The fans of the newer Blink 182 usually hate this album. Read morePublished on Jan. 23 2004 by Punkhardcore
