BLINK-182 / Neighborhoods 
Shadowed by the loss of several close friends, a fatal plane crash, severe depression and some very public fights between band members, Neighborhoods goes to some very dark places. The punk rock influences of Fugazi, NoFX & The Descendants can still be heard but this is closer to the dance pop traits of The Cure, Oingo Boingo & The Police.
It may not be as experimental, solid or as focused as their 2003 self-titled album but it still establishes a constantly evolving sound for the band that's barely recognizable as those naked dog-fuckers of the 90's.
