Green Day's Best,
This review is from: Kerplunk (Audio CD)
Often a disappointment to newer converts of the Warning/Shenanigans style to Green Day, however Kerplunk! is one of the best albums written, a worthy accolade considering their impressive list. As an excellent prelude to Dookie and the following works, anyone with an appreciation of Green Day will enjoy this.
With a list of impressive songs, from 2000 Light Years Away, One for the Razorbacks, through Private Ale, One of My Lies and Who Wrote Holden Cauldfield, this is up there with Green Day's latter works. The headline track is undoubtedly the first version of Welcome to Paradise, whose rawer style even seems to improve upon the Dookie version. The four bonus tracks at the end are also excellent, finishing with a classic cover of The Who's 'My Generation'.
Overall, a superb album, and any fan of Green Day calling themselves that must add it to their collection.
