iTunes Review

No one saw this one coming: three minute Berkeley punk rock heroes put together a compelling concept album (Punk Rock Opera) about a guy known as Jesus of Suburbia who suffers the rise and fall of the American Dream with a nine-minute track (“Jesus of Suburbia”) that splits into five parts as if it’s a tune from Rush. Other tracks follow in similar fashion, splitting into various parts. Characters such as St. Jimmy and Whatsername show up to advance a plotline that’s less important than the overall feeling that something’s going terribly wrong for everyone involved. Post-9/11, the world’s a mess and Billie Joe Armstrong summons up his inner Joe Strummer and Green Day’s Clash tendencies for the title track. But the most rewarding moments are when Armstrong lets his melodic firepower loose. “Holiday” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” use sweet choruses to express their fears and frustrations, with “Extraordinary Girl” and “Letterbomb” furthering the push for pure pop for the now concerned people. The “Deluxe Edition” contains several additional tracks outside the spectrum of the album’s original narrative that are welcomed additions to the Armstrong songwriting catalog (“Shoplifter”).

Green Day At Their Best

I'm gonna start by saying this is an awesome record. Front to Back. And the bonus tracks are great to!
My only complaint is how iTunes grouped some of the tunes, I didn't really like that. What I did was I bought the CD, and then bought the bonus tracks off iTunes. If you don't mind the grouped songs, then buy it off iTunes, but if it bugs you the way it did me, then do what I did.
Whatever you do, get this record! You won't regret it.

Biography

Formed: 1988 in Berkeley, CA

Genre: Alternative

Out of all the post-Nirvana alternative bands to break into the pop mainstream, Green Day were second only to Pearl Jam in terms of influence. At their core, Green Day were simply punk revivalists who recharged the energy of speedy, catchy three-chord punk-pop songs. Though their music wasn't particularly innovative, they brought the sound of late-'70s punk to a new, younger generation with Dookie, their 1994 major-label debut. Dookie sold over ten million copies, paving the way for a string of multi-platinum...
