EDITORS’ NOTES

¡UNO!, the first album of Green Day's 2012 trilogy, is a throwback to the days when the band favored snappy, compact pop-punk. "Nuclear Family" and "Let Yourself Go" are heart-rate-raising punk thrashes, while "Loss of Control" pairs jagged, white-hot guitar solos with jittery rhythms, and the freewheeling "Carpe Diem" laces its power pop with stacked harmonies. Better still is the handclap-heavy "Troublemaker," a falsetto-laden mod-punk daydream about corrupting a snooty beauty.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Still Green Day

Green Day is still Green Day. I'm glad they havnt gone hip hop or electro on us. Sure, Kill the DJ is a little out of place but it's still a good song. Let Yourself Go is a classic example of Green Day rage. Overall, a great album.

The Rise and Rise of Green Day

After 2 amazing rock operas, Green Day has returned back to form with Uno, the first in their ambitious trilogy of albums. The first of these albums reflects their early 90's pop-punk sound in Dookie and Insomniac. This is evident in the songs Nuclear Family, Stay the Night, Let Yourself Go, Fell For You, and Loss of Control. There are also some mixing of 90's Green Day and more recent Green Day, such as the song Oh Love, as well as some completely new themes such as the dance-punk sound of Kill the DJ.

Overall, this is a very solid release by one of the best bands of this age. The next album, Dos, is supposed to have a garage rock sound similar to the Foxboro Hot Tubs album (Green Day's side project) Stop Drop and Roll. Can't wait for that.
