Review: Blink 182 – Wasting Time (Rock)

This review covers the punk rock track Blink 182 – Wasting Time.

This track was released in 1995 on the album Cheshire Cat.

The track starts off with some guitars. The drum kit then comes in. From there, the vocals take the track into the first verse.

From there, the vocals take the track into the first round of the main chorus. An instrumental section comes in after that.

After that, the vocals take the track into the next verse. Backup vocals then make a brief appearance. From there, the vocals take the track into the main chorus again. The vocals and backup vocals extend the main chorus. After that, the guitars lead the track out with a brief voice sample.

One thing I do like about this track is the overall sound. The guitars just give this track that full sound that is so likeable in a rock track.

It should be noted that the mastering could have pushed the vocals a little louder. Luckily, the way it was mixed, nothing actually gets lost, so this is a minor preferential thing for me.

The lyrics are pretty well done. They highlight that wandering thoughts when one is in a relationship. So, it works quite well.

My only real problem with this track is that the length is a little short for my taste. It isn’t a major detriment to the track, but it is a bit of an issue.

Overall, this is a very solid track. It has a good overall sound and the lyrics are well done. Length and mastering might be a bit of an issue, but this track is still enjoyable in my view.
