This was the first greenday album i bought, after been brought up on greenday, at first i was like oh that sounds like... And so on. But after a second listen through i found myself fallign in love with the lyrics, the music, the whole album.
I didn't lsiten to it much at first now i listen to it mostly all the time, one of my favourite bands of all times, along with a shuffle of u2, paramore, keane, snow patrol and more greenday, my walkman is one big music engine, rarely do i venture out without listening to half of the album, i tend to start the album off at track 8/9 and play it all the through till it loops again.
Yes it does sound like american idiot but that doesn't bother me, its an all round great ablum, if you liked the first few greenday albums maybe this isn't for you. But if you loved american idiot you can't go wrong.
Favourite tracks have to be static age, 21 guns, east jesus nowhere, know your enemy. Not in any order,
