What the fucking fuck is this shit? Seriously? What the fuck happened to these guys?? Ugh! Opening up with a slow ass ballad that is a clean rip off of a Who song from Tommy that I can't remember right now, the new album from Green Day called Revolution Radio is anything but revolutionary but it sure is radio friendly, that's for sure. It's a downright disappointing album, more miss than hit, more maudlin and morose than Warning and 21st Century Breakdown combined, and that's saying something! This release finds the band recycling their own earlier riffs in a desperate attempt to find their old sound that we all know and love in order to move units and dupe us once again into believing that they've gone back to their earlier sound and are done selling out and kissing ass, but unfortunately, that's not the case. We've all heard the lead off single from this album, Bang Bang, and besides the obvious Offspring influence, it's not a bad song, but unfortunately, it is literally the only good song on this album. I wish I was kidding. Every other song on here sucks worse than the one before it, everything sounds forced, it all sounds like 21st Century Breakout or American Idiot leftovers. I mean, hearing Billie Joe whining about the evils of social media is a bit of a stretch for a soon to be 45 year old man, isn't it? Sonic wise it sounds great, but other than the song Say Goodbye, there isn't a whole lot to get hyped about on here. Auto tuning, studio effects, trying hard to sound like other current bands instead of themselves, Hell, there's loads and loads of stuff to be disappointed about with this latest release from Green Day - where do you wanna begin? LOL
