blink-182 -- Take Off Your Pants and Jacket
blink-182 pick up where they left off with Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. The music is still fun and fast-paced, but slightly darker and a little more mature. When I say, "A little more mature," put extra emphasis on the "little," and take another look at the album title. I think I just made that dirtier somehow...
Anyway, this album is probably a bit more profane and raw than Enema of the State, and probably not quite as fun, but the tiny increment of maturational increase just barely makes up for it. I prefer Enema to this (the album, not the bowel cleansing), but Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is not any worse of an album.
Maybe I was just too old for this in 2001.
