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.

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 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.

By DOPPLEGANGER TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Sept. 2012

Green Day have been producing popular mainly original innovative music since 1987 and in the process have entertained many, many millions worldwide. And the good news is that with "iUno!" the thrill roller-coaster continues unabated. With the volume of their output over 25 years it must be accepted that every new single track cannot possibly cause the hairs to stand up on the back of your neck or tingles to go up and down the spine, but the standard overall on this newest album is exceptionally high, and is unmistakably Green Day.

"iUno!" it is reported is the first in a trilogy to be released in November this year and January 2013 and cunningly entitled "iDos!" and "iTre!" respectively - for non-polyglot's like myself that's "iOne!", "iTwo!", "iThree!".

On this album the music is kept on a much simpler, and basic level than the previous two releases "21st Century Breakdown", and "American Idiot" which followed the 'rock opera' genre construction. It is gutsy three chord blasts of pop-punk that first made Green Day the darlings of the punk-progressives of the mid '90's. It is good, basic, iconic Green Day music that stirs the emotions and rocks the auditory senses.

The stand-out tracks for me are "Stay The Night", "Loss Of Control", "Nuclear Family","Sweet 16", "Let Yourself Go", "Kill The D.J.", with the anthemic "On Love" being the best of album.

A very good and enjoyable release. Highly recommended.

Firstly, this is not a bad album, but is it a Green Day album? I accept that artistically bands do move on, and as members age their take on life changes, as do their attitudes and the aggression begins to diminish. I do not get the anger, the "edge", the grit or the anarchy from this collection of tunes. Fair play to them, if this is the direction that Green Day see as their destiny, I do not hold that against them, they have given us some kick-ass music over the years. Maybe, when I too mellow I will better be able to appreciate this new sound. Like I say, this album is full of brilliant musicianship, the songs are very well crafted, although I think that the scattering of the "fword" throughout is not necessary and smacks of an attempt to simulate the attitude that I personally feel is missing from Uno! Maybe this is just a break for the guys, perhaps they will be back to shout and rage at those in authority and power, but if not then we will just have to accept that we have lost a voice and wish them well in their new future.
