I had heard a small portion of their stuff so I decided to pick this up in the summertime. I was more than pleased. This greatest hits (while missing some tunes I'd really like to hear) is worth the money. [..] however include "First Date" which I consider one of the most embarrassing things they ever recorded. Blink had an edge which made them stand out from the posers like "Simple Plan".
There are MANY gems on this CD - M+M's, Josie, Man Overboard, Rock Show, Feeling This, I Miss You, Another Girl Another Planet, just to name a few of my more cherished. Don't get me wrong the rest of them are great too... (except First Date...) It's been said before: if you want to hear some fantastic lighter punk rock, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this CD, and I recommend it to anyone who is an avid music collector and listener.
Seriously though, this cd has some of the best pop-punk and pop/rock anthems of the 90's on it.
In a nutshell, the cd has some of their best singles from their albums starting with 'Cheshire Cat' right through to the self-titled 'Blink-182'.
The first 4 songs are "old school" Blink, just before they found fame and started releasing their more well-known stuff.
Tracks 5 to 11 are classic Blink- the real anthems like 'All The Small Things' and 'Rock Show' that everyone who's even heard of the band should know.
12 to 15 shows the more mature side of Blink-182. The songs here are from their latest (and probably last ever) album. By the time that album was released Blink-182 were already a worldwide-selling act.
The last song is a treat! A cover of the classic 'Another Girl, Another Planet' by The Only Ones. This song has been covered loads of times, but Blink's cover version is probably the best one of the lot.
Best songs on the cd are:
What's My Age Again
I Miss You
If you're new to the band and you want a good idea of what they're like, this is the best place to start.
