HELLO! This is still Green Day and it is still great. Bands grow up you know. Teenage angst gets boring. Didn't you see this coming with Time of your life? .....So what this is not Dookie. If it was like any of their previous albums, you would have just complained that they hadn't done anything new. 'Warning' has great lyrics as does 'Fashion Victim', 'Castaway', 'Waiting' and 'Macy's Day Parade'. Admitadly 'Minority' is a little too poppy, but it's heart is in the right place. And 'Misery' is just strange. But all in all this album has faaaaaar more inteligently considered lyrics than any other GD album, apart from 'Nimrod'. I'm not saying it's their best album, cos Nimrod is (in my humble opinion :) )
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.....

Billie Jo Armstrong has always been a talented songwriter, but never before has he shown it so brazenly and with such consistency as on this fine album.
Gone is the frustrating patchiness of Nimrod and Insomniac, and the fetid two-chord thrashes that characterised too much of those last two albums. It has been replaced by a fresher sound, razor-sharp lyrics and, most of all, some terrific tunes.
On Church on Sunday, with its soaring pop hooks and energised guitars, Green Day take the same chords from Dookie's Sassafras Roots and do a far better job with them. Blood Sex and Booze deals with everything in the title in a witty way, and Castaway is brilliance on three chords. The album is one of mixed emotions - 'Today is the first day of the rest of our lives' on Church on Sunday but 'What's the consolation prize? Economy sized dreams of hope' dilutes the optimism on the sensational, balladesque closer Macy's Day Parade, which shows a welcome variety in Billie Jo's songwriting. Misery adds to this impression, with its dark swing and needle-sharp lyrics - surely being the greatest 'punk' song ever to use a farfisa?!
The album's pop pinnacles are sublime - Deadbeat Holiday, which wins the award for best chord sequence on the album, and Hold On, with its unforgettable harmonica line.
This is a thrilling ride of an album, marking an impressive return to form for the band who are still the best punk-pop band in the world, and who trample Blink 182 and their dreadful clones into the Californian dust.

The reviewers dream. An experimental album by one of the greatest bands of the last decade. They thrive on branding these artists sellouts when all they are doing is changing there direction whilst still keeping there old sound. This is what Green Day have done with their new album with as title that should nearly tell you that this is different. From track 1 which is the title track down to first single "Minority" it reeks of pure genius from a superb songwriter who has matured down the years. Warning has a more acoustic feel to it and many people should have seen coming from "Nimrod" when the hugely successful "Time of Your Life(Good Riddance)". It does deserve more than one listen as many of the reviewers may have done before they started carving their knives. The standout tracks are "Church on Sunday" and "Macy Days Parade" which shows the sensitive side of Billie Joe. The greatest band in the world have done it again and long may they continue to write god damn great songs.

Green day have came back sfter a three year absence with a great new sound. 'Warning' makes much bigger use of the acoustic guitar which Billy Joe Armstrong plays brilliantly. Songs like 'Waiting' and 'Macy's Day Parade' show great use of the acoustic guitar and are backed up by great drum and bass. 'Minority' is vintage Green day with it's poppy punk rock tune. 'Church on Sunday' is a fantastic whistleable tune and the bizzare 'Misery' has a catchy sound which will stay in your head for days. In making this album, Green Day have came very close to equalling the brilliant 'Insomniac' and have produced another great album. The best track is definately 'Macy's Day Parade' which is one of Billy Joe's greatest vocals alngside 'Time of your Life'. Some Green Day fans may be dissapointed at the new sound but most will find it just as appealing as the old one.

This Album is called Warning! Perhaps rightly so as enthusiastic listeners of earlier Greenday albums may not find this record to their tastes. I personally think it's on a par with the likes of Dookie and Nimrod. But to say it is as good doesn't mean it's the same - which it isn't by a long way! There's still the edgy punk which Greenday are so well known for, but it's also alot more maturer and rounded. Alot of people will say they don't like this album because it's too commercial or mainstream. Commercial or Mainstream usually just means that it appeals to a wider audience which is probably true here. I like it, I like it alot, if you like Greenday and you are pretty open minded - you'll like it !

Thank you Billie Joe! Yet another outstanding album from the Green Boys! It is a lot more mellow compared with the earlier albums, which I think is a plus. Now, when you sit down ready to listen to your CD's, you can listen to your Hard Punk Rock tunes (Insomniac/Nimrod), your Pop Punk melodies (1039/Kerplunk/Dookie/Nimrod), and now your calm acoustic songs. Having said that, it still has some songs that pack a punch! Blood, Sex & Booze is a great song about... exactly that, Blood, Sex & Booze! Castaway is a more farmiliar rock song, but my favourite track is the beautiful 'Waiting'. It has a great tune, great lyrical content, yet still has the kick of rock music. Can't wait for the next album now!
