Product Description

Product Description

Live album by the American rock group, featuring tracks recorded during their 2009/2010 '21st Century Breakdown' world tour.

BBC Review

Green Day’s last two studio albums have been divided up into three distinct acts. Their latest live album does the same with their career, from the raw and snotty distant past to their part as princes in the mid-90s pop-punk explosion, on to their latter day reboot as stadium rock royalty. Only it starts at the end, bends back in the middle like a slingshot, and then catapults them forward to where they came in.

Confused? You won’t be, as one thing Awesome as F**k makes apparent is how many songs they’ve written that stick in the head – either as well-remembered classics or radio earworms. Where it occasionally slips, stumbles and falters is that the songs that are big, bold and boring – 21 Guns, anything off 21st Century Breakdown – often sound like crowd pleasers, this time with the sound effects to prove it, when placed next to the anthems that endure: a version of Geek Stink Breath that feeds its studio counterpart through a shredder, and pretty much everything off Dookie.

It also falls into of the usual live album manholes of offering surprises one minute and disappointments the next. Holiday’s soul-wringing riff doesn't sparkle the same as it does on record, but American Idiot makes the most of the live format as it gets the breathtaking ‘you take the first verse’ sing-along treatment. Going to Pasalacqua works as a surprising curio dusted off from the vault, but Cigarettes and Valentines sounds more like a discarded B side than the previously-unreleased title-track to the abandoned album that gave way to American Idiot.

The bonus DVD of an entire set from Japan is a nice touch but, rather than the damp, double-ballad ending of Wake Me Up When September Ends and Good Riddance, the final thrill is the scope. Recordings from shows in Europe, the US and Southeast Asia show literally how far Green Day have gone to make this a fitting document and an inclusive experience. Not one for the casual fans, but more than enough to remember the good times.

Format: Audio CD
Recorded from various parts across the globe during their successful `21st Century Breakdown tour', `Awesome as F**k' is Green Day's fourth official live offering to date. Live albums are often met with ambivalence as no recording can ever replicate the magical experience of physically being there and Green Day is no exception to the rule. Yet behind the pyrotechnics, the gimmicks and the flair you got to have consistently good songs to back it up and `AAF' demonstrates just how cohesive and tight the band actually sound. The disc contains songs from their back catalogue ranging from their recent opus `21st Century Breakdown' right back to their debut album `1039' which highlights the band's willingness to celebrate their roots. The tracklisting may seem obscure to the casual fan as the likes of `Basket Case', `Boulevard of Broken Dreams' and `Hitchin' a Ride' are omitted in favour of the lesser known tracks such as `J.A.R.' and `Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?'. This does present a slight curiosity as to why the band doesn't just release a live album comprising of a complete set which remains unanswered. However, there is enough Green Day live material available to make your own set-list if you so wish.

The album is accompanied with a bonus DVD of the band's performance shot in Tokyo, Japan. The footage is crisp and is excellently shot. Although interspersed with clips of backstage footage, unlike `Bullet in a Bible' this is kept to a minimum with the focus being on the concert. Here the band are vitalised, engaging, striking their presence onstage with such energy and conviction that you would never have guessed that they've been around for twenty odd years.

Although I agree the song selection is not as good as Bullet, I think it makes sense not to just duplicate all those tracks. Green Day are still awesome live and this is still no exception so only a few from american Idiot album which makes sense. My only grip is it says DTS and it is not even though it says that on the case, I don't no why if this was a mistake but i have been unable to find the answer on the web or get a response from warners as to if this is an error, i was surprised no other reviewer has mentioned it?

I absolutley LOVE this album! :D I was excited by the release of this CDDVD and I was rightly excited! This is a fantastic album, filled with high energy, amazing excitement and fantastic Green Day songs! The editing and use of lighting effects (while sometimes overused) are perfect and finish off the amazing album which this is. I highly suggest you get it, I'm now getting it on Blu-ray also! ;)

If you thorght that Bullet in a Bible was over edited then prepared.
The DVD feels that the director had a 'how many different camea angles can we fit into each song'apprach with Awesome As F**k.
Personally i think it would have been good to focas more on the music and preformance of the members compared to all the fancy angles and colours, Green Day don't need this to prove that they can put on a GREAT rock show.
In 21 Guns the majority of the song has a blue filter, making the band look like they are auditioning for a role in The Smurfs. Also the 'half-head- shots become quite anoying.
The CD is brilliant you can not fault it, along with the Green Day members music, singing and preformance (HEY-HO)! this is the same with the DVD, it is just that the over editing brings it down a little.
You should definatly buy this album! Its FANTASTIC! Do not hesitate to buy it.
