Album Review: Blink 182 – Take Off Your Pants and Jacket (2001)

Blink 182 – Take Off Your Pants and Jacket
Release Year: 2001

Once KROQ started playing songs from this album, my love for Blink increased tenfold. I can’t remember how many times I’ve listened to this album and I still listen to it to this day.

The “Take off Your Pants and Jacket” album included 3 versions of the album. Each version was a different color and represented the pieces of the album name “Take Off”, “Pants” and “Jacket.” Each version included their own secret songs that played at the end of each album. The secret songs included one serious song and a joke song. When I first listened to it, I heard the Green “Jacket” album version and went on my search to find the other secret songs.

I believe this is the most solid Blink 182 album. Although it has a joke song in the beginning of the album “Happy Holidays, You Bastard”, the flow of the rest of the album was done well.
