It is more than just angst... Nimrod got the balance of punk and inteligent lyrics right for most punk fans. Now GD have taken a departure from punk and have made more musically technical songs. Which is good. There is only so much a band can do with 3 chords.
The inteligently written lyrics wouldn't look out of place in a Nirvana, Metallica or Chili Peppers album. It's good to see they've moved on.....
It's more mature than 'Dookie', but still sounds outspoken, fun and distinctive, which is good for those of you who like Green Day's sound but aren't into the more teen-punk-pop-rant sort of scene.
Every single song is brilliant, every note just seems perfect and when I first listened to it in my room I couldn't stop tapping my foot and grinning like an idiot!
Favourite tracks are 'Blood, Sex and Booze' (the image of Billie Joe tied to a chair does funny things to my heart rate, I must admit), 'Misery' (just sounds fantastic and original), 'Deadbeat Holiday' (the first two lines are: 'wake up, the house is on fire, and the cat's caught in the dryer' - could it get any better?), and 'Minority' (has a strange 'Homecoming' sort of feel to it), but all the tracks are pure bliss to listen to.
This album has established Green Day as my ultimate favourite band ever, hell they even beat the Chili Peppers in my opinion, and that's gotta be high praise from ANYONE.
Billie Joe is now my idol - musical and lyrical genius, fantastic voice, AND a complete hottie - and Mike & Tre are incredibly talented (as well as also being quite handsome too).
