Amoeba Review

After the huge success (critically and commercially) of Green Day’s second-wind, politically charged release American Idiot, they stumbled a bit with the ponderous 21st Century Breakdown. Now, Green Day aims to recapture their old sound with the first of three albums to be released this year, Uno!. Rather than aiming for radio with an oversaturated sound, songs like “Stay the Night” highlight their classic power-pop influence (hopefully, songs like this lead kids back to band like The Knack and The Plimsouls for examples of precursors to Green Day’s poppified punk sound), while “Carpe Diem” is pure Clash-worshipping fun. There’s also quite a bit of Devo in Armstrong’s nasally delivery in the verses of the otherwise screamy “Let Yourself Go” (remember their new wave side project The Network?). By looking back once again to their forebears rather than spinning in circles, Green Day refind the inspiration that once fueled classics like Dookie. Without the pomp of a full-album concept like that of American Idiot, Armstrong’s ever-economical, always catchy songwriting shine through first and foremost. Other than a like-it-or-not dance rock diversion of a first single (“Kill the DJ”), this is classic Green Day. Your 12-year-old (or your inner 12-year-old) will jump for joy. Let’s hope Armstrong carries through his recent turmoil and continues to deliver the goods!
