Blink-182: Take Off Your Pants and Jacket

Blink-182 - Take Off Your Pants and Jacket cover.jpg

2001

Blink-182 had some big shoes to fill after the major success of “Enema of the State”. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket demonstrates maturity in songs like “Story of a Lonely Guy” and “Stay Together For the Kids” but is full of fun, catchy anthems. This album works as a great follow-up to Enema of the State without trying to replicate it’s formula. Very simply…this album is the best way blink-182 could have followed-up Enema of the State. It shows a bit of maturity while respecting where it came from. This is another album where the singles aren’t the only songs that really stand out. It is filled with great deep-cuts.
