Blink-182 sticks to the winning formula of past efforts Dude Ranch and Enema of the State on Jacket, an extremely well-produced, hard-hitting exercise in pre-pubescent punk rock that will no doubt sell millions to throngs of misguided juveniles who relate to the band's piss takes on life's everyday miseries.
In fact, on the musical front blink-182 are more reminiscent of the Beach Boys than the Sex Pistols: a very, very fast and tasteless Beach Boys, admittedly, but those massed harmonies and that glossy production are the pop perfectionist's fantasy taken to its logical conclusion.
Q MagazineYet when they stop arsing around for the sake of it, Blink-182 write some very good pop songs. [Aug 2001, p.124]

The fact that people are hateing on this album because of its immaturity is stupid, Blink 182 once took pride in it's immature ways and that's what us kids love,that's what's sets blink-182 apart from others is that they are what they are and they can really relate to kids better, the fast passed sound, cultural references, and tounge in cheek jokes makes this a great album that is the teen culture.… Expand

Aug 21, 2012Not so good as 'Enema Of The State' but this album also rocks! Not this stupid fast punk like in 'Cheshire Cat' - it's pop, punk and rock withNot so good as 'Enema Of The State' but this album also rocks! Not this stupid fast punk like in 'Cheshire Cat' - it's pop, punk and rock with awesome lyrics! They can be funny, they can make party and they can make sad songs with much meaning behind them. Some songs like "Roller Coaster", "Reckless Abandon" or "Give Me One Good Reason" could've been kicked off, but okay, that's how they made it and it got great! It makes fun too listen, also if it's a bit disappointing if you expected something as good as Enema.… Expand
