Green Day:American Idiot Review
Its always discussed by music fanatics and punk rock fans, or people who like banging there heads together. Is are Green Day the greatest band in the World? Well with the evidence of there 'GROUNDBREAKING MASTERPIECE' American Idiot album they well damn could be. 'The Anti American' contingent serve up a truly masterful array of songs that dig deep into portal of instrumental music. With the opening beat of hysteria of American Idiot, to the mellow softening of Wake Me Up When September Ends. The vocal talent and writing from 'MUSICAL WIZARD' Billy Joe Armstrong are explioted to the full extreme of musical 'paramount'.
Armstrong's grunted verbal sound and radical lyrics explain the full extent of a such respected and ultimately talented individual. The Album fits perfectly into the mainstream of the music 'Phenomenon'. With more monumental euphony that delve into the cognitive barrier and create a sense of relentless enjoyment. Every piece of music that littered the record, have been executed with care and belief. The songs are made to keep the fire burning in the heart, its produced to make the pulse race in a blissful strain.
The rest of the songs on the album are prime for the style of Green Day. They emulate past compositions, and the record has the same 'AURA' as mega bash DOOKIE ALBUM. One song on the record (Jesus of Suburbia)lasts a colossal nine minutes and twelve seconds. It is a sound of complete genius and overpowering energy. Billy Joe's expertise justifies Green Day's efforts, his tone of voice changes, the lyrics gel like a duck to water.
The four songs that stand out, are singles Boulevard of Broken Dreams. the mellow contribution that seeps sentiment, is the emotional wake me up when september ends. head bashing first single American Idiot and fourth single the politically involved Holiday. The less recognised songs on the are just as 'Mind Blowing' The drum infused 'Are we the waiting' contains a rip of magic beyond a magicians capabilities' The pill popping Give Me Novacaine, Letterbomb, Whats yer Name, St Jimmy, She's a rebel, the jumbo Homecoming, and the song with a sublime chorus 'extraordinary Girl'.
2004 was the year of Green Day's finest musical score. There American Idiot catalogue created propaganda and unmatched success. so after a long 5 years in there comfort zone, under the musical skin, they produced one of most complete albums that music has taken into its money laden hands. Now is Green Day the greatest band in World? Just listen to the Album and delve into a musical paradise, then make up your mind.

I agree with everything you said, but nobody else will. People hate successful bands no matter how much they deserve it
Prepare for flaming, sorry but that's just the way the pickle squirts around here

Or they hate it because its pop/rock crap. I think it's getting ridiculous that everytime something mainstream gets bashed on here fans of it assume its just because its mainstream not because its you know, pop garbage.

there's nothing wrong with something being catchy or poppy, MJ, but if it's totally derivative, bland, insipid and creatively bankrupt at the same time and brings nothing new to the table at all, then it's reprehensible crap.

I actually do agree to some extent with you.
The album wasn't nearly as good as you make it out to be
But it was an above average mainstream rock album
It its not anything particularly special or different
But is not nearly as bad as a lot of people say it is
white and black, are you looking for the sun boy?
the sun doesn't shine down here, no, not in the shadow

Anyway, I simply don't like American Idiot. It has nothing to do with their popularity (RHCP is one of my fav bands ffs).
