Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Despite the fact that no porn stars grace the cover of Take Off Your Pants & Jacket, don't think for a minute that Blink 182 have abandoned writing about sex, toilet humor, and the kinds of awkward social moments familiar to every teenager. With plenty of pop-punk hooks and choppy guitar riffs in their arsenal, Mark, Tom, and Travis pick up where they left off on Enema of the State, opening with the generational diatribe "Anthem Part II." From here this goofy trio taps into the ups and downs of adolescent angst, including the pain of unrequited infatuation "Story of a Lonely Boy", divorce "Stay Together for the Kids", and the feeling of being an outsider amid high school's vicious social tribes "Give Me One Good Reason". Blink's knack for delivering four-on-the-floor tempos and catchy sing-along choruses keeps things from getting too weighty, and the band's flip attitude makes for plenty of funny moments, from a 40-second, punk-fueled flip-off of an ex-girlfriend "Happy Holidays, You Bastard" to a dissection of the terrors and insecurities associated with early courtship "First Date". Blink 182's combination of pop smarts and endearing vulnerability dispels any notion that they're only capable of being the Adam Sandlers of punk rock.
All Music Guide - Darren Ratner
Not too much has changed since we last left blink-182. You might hear the same snap, crackle, and pop that the trio has prided themselves on for almost ten years. There's even the continual cabbage-patch screech of Tom Delonge and support for rampant teen angst. But five albums later, these San Diego natives grab their rosy-cheek punkadelics and add a bit more of a flamboyant, passionate maturation on Take off Your Pants and Jacket. When Enema of the State leaped onto the charts in 1999, the lyrical direction was 90 percent party-boy mentality, leaving little room for traces of a growth spurt. And while we're still feeling the continual back-drip of tracks from Enema, the fresh plethora of tunes from these rambunctious Toys-R-Us rockers have more purpose than ever. With a fight-for-your-right joviality that's often irresistible, songs like "Anthem Part 2" and "Stay Together for the Kids" house a indomitable school-kid voice where a surging vapor of knockout speed chords meet wrecking-ball percussion. The meanings are bucketed and spilled, with lines like "If we're f*cked up/You're to blame" "Anthem Part 2". And forget about escaping lyrics such as, "I'll never talk to you again/Unless your dad 'ill suck me off," which stems from the hilarious, almost brilliant 42-second clash called "Happy Holidays, You Bastard." "First Date" and "Roller Coaster" are only a couple of their tunes that act as therapy for post-pubescent dilemma, also present on previous efforts like Enema and Dude Ranch. Each song about the rotten girlfriend or unhip parent speaks loud and often to the 2000 MTV generation. Nevertheless, the dumped-in-the-amusement-park tone and lyrical progression are sharp, if not entertaining. The band's stint on the Vans Warped Tour, with veteran punksters such as Pennywise and Rancid, has become a supreme outlet for blink-182. Take off Your Pants is one of their finest works to date, with almost every track sporting a commanding articulation and new-school punk sounds. They've definitely put a big-time notch in the win column.

    Very Cool.

    This is no CD that the next album turned out to be but is almost as good as the next. not as mature and deep but some songs are such as the sad "Stay Together For The Kids" about divorce, "Story of A Lonely Guy" also very depressing, and "Please Take Me Home". this is not a very clean album but i would say it is worth the money. it is about the feeling of being a teen and how good life is and how sometimes love will crush you and that stuff. very good though i must say. recommended. not for the kids though but for older teens. get it.

    I would gice it zero stars but u can't.

    I can't believe that Blink could make such a poser album. Their like hey we're swearing for the little kids and they think its funny.I am a huge fan of everything before this album so dont get me wrong but this album is full of stupid pop so if your a true Blink fan stay away.

    I love BLINK 182 (ESPEACIALLY TOM DELONGE. HE IS FINE)

    The new album totally shows a more mature side to the band but there are the songs which show the bands wilder side. Also I love Tom delonge. I think he is very cute and fine.

    Blink-182 Does It Again

    This is a great CD. It has great rock music, some slower tunes to listen to and of course a little comedy to get you through it. I've enjoyed Blink-182 for a while now and I hope everyone goes out to buy ''Take Off Your Pants And Jack It''

    The best blink 182 cd yet

    The new cd from blink is their best yet. It has everything and then some. It has the fast punk rock songs (online songs, shut up) the depressing songs (anthem pt. 2, stay together for the kids) and the hilarious blink-style joking around type of song (happy holidays) I highly recommend that you buy this one it will not dissapoint if u are a blink fan
