Product Description

Nimrod is the fifth studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day, released on October 14, 1997 through Reprise Records. The group began work on the album in the wake of their cancellation of a European tour after the release of Insomniac (1995). Recorded at Conway Studios in Los Angeles, the album was written with the intent of creating a set of stand-alone songs as opposed to a cohesive album. Retrospectively, Nimrod is noted for its musical diversity and experimentation. It contains elements of folk, surf rock, and ska; the lyrical themes discussed on the record include maturity, personal reflection, and fatherhood. Nimrod has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

This is another good Green Day album. Most of the tracks are worth listening to. Nice Guys Finish Last, The Grouch, Redundant, Scattered, All the Time, Worry Rock,Uptight, Walking Alone and Prosthetic Head are all good songs. Jinx, Haushinka and Reject are a bit samey for me. Platypus is too fast to really grow on you and Take Back is a bit too heavy. Last Ride In is good but I think you have to be in a certain kind of mood to listen to it. The best tracks are Hitchin' A Ride, King For A Day and Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life).

It is such a shame to see a great band like Green Day being the target of so much negative criticism (or it seems that way here in the States). Here is a band who can make great music, are incredibly impressive when performing live, and they never seem to put out an album with the sole purpose of being popular or on TV so much. (If that were the case, they would release more albums at a time.) Green Day is one of my all time favourites and they continue to do nothing but impress me. "Nimrod" is an excellent album with a ton of great songs.
You can see how much the band has matured and how they have grown musically. They are always willing to try new things, which is something you really see lacking in some of these newer punk or alternative bands. The guitar playing is great, the drumming is always impressive, and the singing and lyrics are reflections of top-notch talent.
EVERY song on this album is great, but here are some of my favourites: hitchin' a ride, the grouch, nice guys finish last, worry rock, scattered, king for a day, walking alone, prosthetic head, and time of your life. (Seeing the song "king for a day" performed live really enriches the song and makes you appreciate it more, which is why it is one of my favourites.)
Green Day is a fabulous band who has never disappointed me once. I just think they got popular too quick and then people started burning out on them. It is a shame, because they are a great band who can play some amazing music. If you love to hear outstanding music from an exceptional band, Green Day's "Nimrod" might be the CD for you. Definitely worth checking out!

This is Green Day's best album. New fans will prefer American Idiot and it's commercial hooks, and purists will prefer Dookie since the band still sounded "rough and raw" when it was recorded. But personally, I think if Nimrod can be put in the shadow of those other two albums, then Green Day must be one amazing band, because it is fantastic. And here's why.
For a start, it's longer than both. Eighteen tracks on one album is not skimpy, and great value for money. Furthermore, the vast majority of these eighteen tracks are marvellous. To list, I would categorise Nice Guys Finish Last, The Grouch, Redundant, Scattered, All The Time, Worry Rock, Uptight, Walking Alone, King For A Day and (obviously) Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life), as good or great. In addition, Hitchin' A Ride is Green Day's best single release ever, and was their best song ever until Jesus Of Suburbia (on American Idiot). That's 11 out of 18 songs either good, great or excellent. That's 11 out of 18 reasons to buy Nimrod.
Admittedly, there are some puzzlers and some downsides. Platypus (I Hate You) is a bit too rant-like I think. Last Ride In is a nice instrumental intermission, but not a song I would rush to play. Jinx, Haushinka and Reject are nearer the end of the album, and are so samey that by this time they just blend into the background and don't stand out at all for me. Take Back is an interesting foray into metal territory but not something I'd listen to the album for. And Prosthetic Head is pleasant enough, but not a stand-out album closer. I think it would have been more poignant (although possibly more corny) to end Nimrod with Time Of Your Life.
The album is not perfect. But the good clearly outweighs the bad.

This album is brilliant. When I first got it, I thought it was ok, because none of the songs stood out particularly. But I have realised that the reason for that is that they are all brilliant. The best tracks are "Nice guys finish last", "The grouch", "Redundant", "Worry rock" and time of your life, but they're all great.
This album is worth buying for any green day fan and I would recommend it to anyone. It has everything. It is probably consistently the best album I have.

I was first introduced to GreenDay with the album Warning. I, unlike many GreenDay fans, thought the album was fantastic. This was probably more to do with the fact that I had never heard them before than anything else. Anyway, after liking Warning so much I decided to buy their back catalogue. Nimrod was the first album I bought and boy was I impressed!!! I loved Nimrod so much! It is so different to Warning yet it just completely blew my mind. I delved deeper and bought Dookie and Kerplunk. Ever since that first song on Warning I have been a GreenDay fan. Nimrod was kind of the official starting point for me because it turned out to be my favourite until American Idiot came out earlier this year and I have to admit, I cannot fault that album. It plays in my car, my home, at work, everywhere! I think Nimrod would definately be a good start to the GreenDay catalogue.
