Father of All… finds Green Day moving from the mosh pit to the dancefloor. The album contains all the attitude, high-energy drive, and addictive qualities of their earlier work but instead of in-your-face punk rock confrontation, Billy Joe Armstrong and the boys are serving up catchy-as-hell dance punk. Drawing inspiration from T. Rex, Martha and the Vandellas, Little Richard, and Mott the Hoople, the band wrote the album as a response to our current social and political climate. In this case, however, instead of a middle finger to the guy in the White House, we’ve got a more primal response — the basic human need to move your body, throw yourself around, and work it out on the dancefloor. Thirteen albums in and Green Day still has the power to surprise. Father of All… is a riotous good time.
