This is from a few months ago. They're all fine ;)

To add to the discussion: The tracks on Uno may be medicore, but over all it's a pretty solid album - Yes, Dos has some killer tracks on it. some. The other songs are either filler or rahter weak.
Tré's better than Uno, but not what you'd expect from Green Day.
I've not seen a single song that got picked on a lot, everyone got their favourites, everyone hates different songs.
Conclusion: Green Day are at a point in their career where they don't have to proof anything to critics, they made these free albums mostly for themselves and the fans.
Go ahead, make a 13-track playlist outta the trilogy and... Voilá. You've got your 'personal' killer-Green Day album.


And hi, btw. Obviously I'm new to this site.
I've been on a few forums before... But is someone in this topic kind enough to tell me where the hell the button to follow a thread is? It seems that I'm too stupid to find it on my own :winkwink:

Yeah, to be honest the two pictures are too different to be compared fairly. The lighting is a lot brighter in the second photo, making them look more pale and Billie is doing that cheek-sucking thing that Deryck seems to do a lot too. Although he does look a bit slimmer. Does he work out?

Anyway, I was thinking of making a Green Day playlist from these songs, although my favorite songs in combination probably wouldn't make the most exciting album.

I've made quite a good one; I split it into three parts (I don't need to tell you what they're called) and if you keep the whole feel of each individual album while rooting out the not-so-good songs, it makes for a great playlist.

On a side note, I suddenly on a walk today realised something - the song Dirty Rotten Bastards tells the story of a girl called Juliana Homicide... Sound familiar? :devious:

Edit: Billie Joe has declared that today, the 11th December, is now International Green Day. Happy Green Day everybody!

Agreed, X-Kid is my favorite. It gives me a Warning (the album) vibe.

Dirty Rotten Bastards is also great because I can't get enough of their long, diverse songs. This trilogy is full of the opposite. Not necessarily bad, but you know.

The only two songs I liked off of Tre is Dirty Rotten Bastards and 99 Revolutions. It started slow, picked up A TAD, then died down. Dos was my favorite, than Uno, and than Tre. Was it worth $30 for buying all the albums. I would say so.

Re: Green Day

Postby TomiT14 on Sun Jan 27, 2013 3:20 pm

Alright. If I reviewed the albums right away, it would've been brutal, so I gave them time to grow, to be able to give a fair review.

Didn't help.

Uno

After listening to the singles before the album came out, I was kinda disappointed, but still hopeful the rest of the album would be better. Oh Love was brutally awful, but Kill The DJ, Stay The Night and Nuclear Family were catchy, but more like fillers than hits. I was waiting for songs that would be good enough to play on a constant repeat.

That didn't happen. To my surprise, the singles (excluding Oh Love) were the best songs of the album, unfortunately. Only the first half of the album was listenable more than one time. The second half was full of fillers, I still haven't got any joy out of them. The only non-single song of the album I like is Fell For You.

I was going to list my best songs from every album, but then I realized that the best ones are also the only ones worth listening to. But anyway.

Songs I liked: Stay The Night, Fell For You, Kill The DJ, Nuclear Family.

Dos

I had big hopes for this. Uno was a letdown, so I trusted this one to cover up what was missing.

And I was wrong. This time the disappointment was even worse, because I couldn't expect anything to be worse than Uno. The first half of Uno was listenable, but this album didn't have even that! Although my favorite songs off Dos were better than my favs in Uno, but still I wouldn't include any of them to the Top Green Day songs list. Still, they were very catchy, really enjoyed listening to them.

But the rest of the album? There were only one or two mediocre songs, rest were awfully poor. Nightlife? Seriously? Yuck!

Songs I liked: Lazy Bones, Stray Heart, Ashley, Baby Eyes, Amy.

Tre

Oh boy. To save you some reading, this was the biggest disappointment of the trilogy. Of course, after having two mediocre-to-poor albums, I hoped that this would've saved the trilogy. And again, I was hoping for too much. I seriously couldn't expect that an album would be even worse than the first two.

Same as Dos, Tre seemed to just have songs thrown in, without any flow. This album had fewer listenable songs, and even the ones I liked couldn't beat the ones from the previous albums. Bummer!

Songs I liked: 99 Revolutions, Walk Away, Missing You, Dirty Rotten Bastards (part of it).

Sum up

Now I totally see why Green Day released a trilogy. Quantity to cover up the missing quality. Simple as that.
All the albums were just a collection of songs, there weren't absolutely any kind of flow when listening to them front to back. And even the best songs weren't good enough to be called hits, imo.

The biggest thing that bothered me was the laziness in the lyrics. It seemed that the theme of the trilogy was to make songs with choruses that would just repeat the same line over and over again. Like 99 Revolutions for example. It's my favorite, melody- and catchiness-wise, but the lyrics sound like they are from a demo version. The chorus sounds like it's sung that way temporarily before they would come up with better lyrics. Seriously, I trust Billie Joe, it couldn't be that hard to figure out some lyrics to the chorus. Same with Walk Away, Kill The DJ and few others.

And of course, there must be a Jesus Of Suburbia kind of song too. Luckily Dirty Rotten Bastards wasn't as long, since the parts sound so out of place. And also, Shoplifter much? An exact ripoff if you ask me.


This is just sad for me. Green Day has been my 2nd favorite band for so long, but this trilogy just wasn't even close to their previous material. Just like some of you said that you pretend that Underclass Hero didn't happen, well I'm having the same thoughts about this trilogy. I know that there won't be another American Idiot, but these albums were probably their worst albums imo.

Agreed!! ^

Considering the amount of music they put out, to only have like 10-15 DECENT songs is just disappointing. They definitely went quantity over quality on this one and its a bummer to see a such a letdown from an awesome band that we've all grown up with. :sosad:

I let them grow on me as well, but I actually really like Tre now. X-Kid, Sex Drugs & Violence, Little Boy Named Train, Amanda, Walk Away, Dirty Rotten Bastards, 99 Revolutions. Those are in track order because I actually love listening through that part of the album.

Yes, overall the trilogy is pretty filler. But hey, it's good background music if you don't want to pay attention.

I agree with Tomi 99% only because I didn't mind Nightlife, haha. By the time Tre came out I didn't expect to enjoy more than four songs. To this day X-Kid is the only one I listen to from that album, not to mention almost the entire trilogy.

However, yes, it does make good background music and I think most of the songs would sound better live than they would on a CD.

It seems to me they do and say the same as Billy Talent did this year.
I don't really like GD's music after 21st Century Breakdown, but damn... I definitely want them to come here and play a show. :holyshit: Maybe next year...

The new song is ok, it's growing on me. I had a better first impression with Fake My Own Death. But I'm more concerned that Revolution Radio will completely overshadow 13 Voices with it being released on October 7th as well. It makes me suspect whether it was done on purpose lol

The song's a grower, for sure. I didn't find it too interesting on the first listen, but it becomes catchier the more I play it. It feels a bit 21st Century Breakdown more than anything to me, maybe it's the bridge.

The trilogy albums weren't very good, heavy in throwaway, forgettable tracks. I'm hoping this album is better quality.
