  1. 8.0 |   NME

    The band settle into a new groove with the spiritual follow-up to the classic 'Untitled', though there's no room for nostalgia with Blink 2.0

  2. 8.0 |   Kerrang!

    Whether or not this slightly grown-up iteration of blink lasts more than this one record remains to be seen, but on NINE it feels like the band are finding a new lease of life in the dark days of 2019

  3. 7.2 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    In a way, it's the story of blink-182 since the early days: look past the garish neon, the jarring pop and confused self-image, and what you find is a surprisingly somber and moving piece of work that might just stay with you

  4. 7.0 |   All Music

    While Nine is by no means a dour emo record, it carries enough emotional heft to elevate it as one of blink-182's strongest late-era efforts, one that matures the typical blink sound with its commitment to vulnerability and honesty

  8. 5.0 |   The Music

    We want to find the good in this record, but it’s tough

  9. 5.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The new trio's second record is weighed down by stereotypical lyrics and cloying choruses

  10. 4.0 |   Punk News

    A few songs impress but the majority is meant to fill radio stations and leave you wondering where the magic this band held went

  11. 3.0 |   Exclaim

    Blink-182 have always been intentionally juvenile, but in growing up and out of punk rock, they've never been more immature
