Amoeba Review

12/10/2012

Some critics have seemed to be befuddled by Green Day’s recent trilogy of albums, beginning with ¡Uno! y ¡Dos! y finalmente ¡Tré! Personally I like the tossed-off quality to these albums, which is not to say the songwriting isn’t top-notch — in fact, it’s the best it’s been since the beloved (but IMO overrated) American Idiot. Fast and furious suits Green Day, and ¡Tré! might be the best of the trio after ¡Uno!, which had some failed pop experiments, and some of the garage-rock posturing of ¡Dos! The album begins with “Brutal Love,” a piano ballad that sets the tone for an album whose loose nature belies the fact that it’s largely indebted to classic rock. “Missing You” is primo Green Day — a few Clash-inspired chords moving into a Pixies-style surge that makes pop-punk seem necessary again. “8th Avenue Serenade” rocks hard on a nostalgic alt-rock riff, while “Amanda” similarly looks to the Pixies for inspiration, but its melody and arrangement are some of the strongest on the record. “Drama Queen” shuffles with a fun, Beatles-esque feel, while “Dirty Rotten Bastards” makes a virtue once again of their Clash worship, charging for a full six-and-a-half minutes without losing an ounce of momentum. It’s a ragtag collection, but for those of us looking for Green Day to give us less concept and more rock ‘n’ roll abandon, ¡Tré! is the ticket.
