Product Description

Product Description

Uno is the first of a trilogy of albums released by the band in the space of a four-month period, as they attempt to create a leaner, meaner rock sound than their most previous studio albums. Armstrong describes the sound on the triple-header as "somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles".

BBC Review

With their last eight years occupied by the grand projects of American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, the notion that Green Day are a band whose musical character is informed by a sense of creative courage is no longer new.

One of the most fascinating things about ¡Uno!, though, is just how deftly its authors have managed to secure for themselves fresh ground on which to operate. Not least because, with this tight and melodically claustrophobic album, it seems that no space actually exists.

Not everything contained within is of the highest order, mind. Billie Joe Armstrong’s Iggy Pop-style drawl on Troublemaker lends a rather mannered quality to his usually impeccable sense of vocal-phrasing, and Carpe Diem is a little too reminiscent one of the authors’ earlier songs, 1997’s Suffocate.

Elsewhere though, this is a work of masterfully controlled music. ¡Uno! manages to feature both a dance track (Kill the DJ) and a quite stunning closing song (Oh Love) that hints at Celtic balladry fashioned precisely in Green Day’s image.

Just as captivating is Armstrong’s sense of lyrical finesse, particularly his ability to transform from a man capable of expressing unconditional love while, in the song, becoming the kind of “son of a bitch and Edgar Allen Poe” featured in American Idiot. The latter characters, or character traits, are particularly delicious.

On the pummelling Loss of Control, the singer warns that he’s “taking down all his enemies ‘cause they’re all so f***ing useless / A bunch of s***-talking drama queens who are all filled with excuses.” Two songs later, on the sexually charged Angel Blue, the man with the microphone is telling someone he desires to be his “bloody valentine”. Bloody how, exactly?

This question and more are posed by this fascinating work, a release that demands of the listener the care and attention afforded it by its creators. Free from grandly theatrical flourishes that were threatening to become things of creative captivity, ¡Uno!’s graceful manoeuvres confirm Green Day’s status as one of the world’s finest rock’n’roll bands.

Format: Audio CD
I've been a Green Day (GD) fan since "Dookie" took over the world and I've enjoyed their music since. Some records, like 2000's "Warning", have been sketchy at best with maybe half a record being great and the rest not so much. "Uno" feels to me like this kind of GD record.

There are quite a few songs that, despite repeat listenings, I can't get into and feel very throwaway. Compare "Troublemaker", "Loss of Control", "Sweet 16" and "Fell For You" (which sounds like "Nimrod"-era GD) to some of GD's B-sides from the late 90s like "Desensitized", "Scumbag" or "Ha Ha You're Dead" and the B-sides actually sound far better than these supposed A-sides (you can get these B-sides on their record "Shenanigans"). If GD weren't doing 3 records in 4 months and were just doing 1, would some of these songs be cut? Most definitely.

But this is GD, gdammit! Billie-Joe is such a talented songwriter he can't help but put some excellent tunes on the record. "Nuclear Family" opens the record with an instantly likeable, punchy, poppy, energetic hook that grabs you and makes you want to jump and sing. And thankfully it's this quality in a number of songs on this record that make "Uno" worth listening to for any GD fan. "Let Yourself Go" and "Carpe Diem" are both classic GD-sounding songs while the enjoyable "Angel Blue" opening riff sounds like The Clash's "I Fought the Law" before moving into that stop-start rhythm that Billie-Joe's perfected over the years.

Even in the most targeted-by-critics song on the record "Kill the DJ", there's a moment in the song that I thought was a nice touch (but most people are right, this song is pretty bad).

After reading the reviews posted here I had to write one, I think this a brilliant album, love it, all the tunes are really catchy and a few of them remind me of older Greenday songs. I've followed them for years and have all their albums and seen them live, I think theyre the best band in the world and this album doesnt dissapoint!

After the recent disappointment of The Killers Battle Born and to a lesser extent The Darkness' Hot Cakes I was set for another let down with Green Day's Uno. Well, I tried to convince myself not to get my hopes up, anyway.....
Would releasing three albums mean there'd be too much filler?
First impressions when listening through Uno is there there's nothing bad on here. No duds. If on first listen there's nothing to turn me off then on each listen the songs can only get better!! Right? However, is there anything here truly A grade memorable? Time will tell.
I don't think I'll ever love Kill The DJ but that seems to be the only slight blemish on what's a very agreeable album. It sounds like a mesh of Nimrod and Warning to me but with less variation in sounds.
I shall now repeat repeat repeat and come back......

I'm back after a weekend of heavy listening and all I can say is I'm quite pleased!! 2012 isn't the write-off it was turning out to be!!
Highlights for me are:
Nuclear Family is a great opener
Let Yourself Go - classic GD
Fell For You is maybe the highlight for me
Troublemaker feels like a track from Warning
Oh Love - not the most original creation but catchy.

The other tracks are all great tunes as well:
Stay The Night though is perhaps a bit overlong
Carpe Diem is like how Jesus of Suburbia would sound if it were from Warning
Kill The DJ is catchy - I admit it.
Loss Of Control is more classic GD
Angel Blue could be a lost Dookie track
Sweet 16 is as the title suggests: sweet.
As for filler, there's none really. Maybe Rusty James (or is it Gloria?) is the only lesser track. It's nice but not in the class of the other tracks - perhaps it's too familiar sounding.

You wait for 3 years and then 3 come along at once! (well nearly) As a Green Day fan since pretty much the beginning this album is a fantastic offering, jumping back to the Dookie / Insomniac type, fast-paced angry punkish rock, to more mellow, even 60's sounding tracks and of course some pure rock n roll. Carpe Diem is my pick of the bunch, but there are plenty of other strong efforts including the opening Nuclear family. There are no 9 - 10 minute tracks, as seen on the previous 21st Century and AI albums, brilliant though they were, you can't keep churning these rock operas out. If there was a half star I'd give it 4.5, as there are 2 weeker tracks, but that's only my opinion. BJ's vocals are stronger than ever. Can't wait until they tour the trilogy of albums, probably sometime in the New Year as they are embarking on a N American tour first. I've seen them a few times, never fail to impress. As I've got all of the albums I ordered on CD, but you can download it on this week of release for just £4.99!! Well worth it surely?

Maybe I didn't have high expectations due to the various people saying this was 'the same old Green Day bla bla bla from years ago and they should give up' etc... but I happen to LOVE the same old Green Day sound so anything new is welcome. Honestly, I have heard worse albums from them - this is really not bad at all. I think they set a high benchmark for themselves after American Idiot, but I think they pulled it off with 21st Century Breakdown (even if not commercially as successful), and this one is in a different style - the songs aren't connected or anything, but I don't know where else they could have gone with that. Instead, the albums are connected - uno! dos! tres! Honestly really love this album. I have not yet heard the other two albums.
