For those of you who are unaware that this is a rock opera, let me fill you in.

My take on the album:

American Idiot: An introduction to the setting and mood of the story; describes the current way of life in America and the issues some have with it.

Jesus of Suburbia:

I. Jesus of Suburbia: We are introduced to the main character, "Jesus of Suburbia," so named because he's a typical suburban kid (there's nothing wrong with me, this is how i'm supposed to be): his parents are divorced, he sits around watching TV, and experiments with drugs. He feels an emptiness in his life.

II. City of the Damned: Jesus' discontentment grows as he realizes the apathy of those surrounding him.

III. I Don't Care: Jesus sees how widespread people's indifference is.

IV. Dearly Beloved: Jesus notes the effect of this indifference on his own personal relationships.

V. Tales of Another Broken Home: Fed up to the point of breaking, Jesus leaves home in search of meaning and a purpose in his life.

Holiday: Jesus meditates on the problems with modern American government and society as he wanders the streets of the city to which he has run away.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams: Jesus laments his lonliness in this new place. This song hints at the upcoming emergence of St. Jimmy (I'm walking down the line that divides me somewhere in my mind).

Are We the Waiting: Still alone, Jesus wonders what will become of him. He comes to reject his identity (the Jesus of Suburbia is a lie) and decides to create a new one, leading to...

St. Jimmy: The introduction of "St. Jimmy," the punk street kid personality that Jesus invents to go along with his new life.

Format: Audio CD
Although I annually listen to hundreds of albums in my capacity as music director at my University's radio station, I can safely say that this album is the most bracing, rich and rewarding album of the year. Certainly, it is not a superficially original album-the influences that range from the Who's mini-rock opera "A Quick One...", general power pop, punk and pure pop are immediately recognisable. However, Armstrong and company have created an immediately endearing and--surprisingly enough-transcendent work that functions and succeeds on so many levels.

I suspect that those who have matured with this band, and have witnessed the seeming intra-personal, political and intellectual collapse of this nation in the decade since "Dookie"-will find this album to be particularly affecting. (Particularly those of us, such as the reviewer, who have reached a point of their life at which past dreams and illusions are beginning to be elided by the pressing concerns of an exhausting and enervating, if lucrative, professional existence that will come into existence after graduation.)

I must note, however, that this album has been unfortunately vilified by a variety of groups.

Elitist indie-hipsters, who find impossible the prospect of enjoying an album that is not only released on a major label but also is commercially success, castigate the band as trite, mainstream and unoriginal.

Frozen-in-time `punks' castigate the album for not being 'punk' enough (as if a standard, universal definition of punk exists!)

Those with extraordinarily limited capabilities for analytical thought castigate the band for being anti-american or some other nonsense.

A Kid's Review on May 2, 2005
Format: Audio CD
For those of you that are currently unaware, "American Idiot" is a rock opera and a concept album, much like The Who's "Tommy" or Pink Floyd's "The Wall."

My take on the album:

American Idiot: An introduction to the setting and mood of the story; describes the current way of life in America and the issues some have with it.

Jesus of Suburbia:

I. Jesus of Suburbia: We are introduced to the main character, "Jesus of Suburbia," so named because he's a typical suburban kid (there's nothing wrong with me, this is how i'm supposed to be): his parents are divorced, he sits around watching TV, and experiments with drugs. He feels an emptiness in his life.

II. City of the Damned: Jesus' discontentment grows as he realizes the apathy of those surrounding him.

III. I Don't Care: Jesus sees how widespread people's indifference is.

IV. Dearly Beloved: Jesus notes the effect of this indifference on his own personal relationships.

V. Tales of Another Broken Home: Fed up to the point of breaking, Jesus leaves home in search of meaning and a purpose in his life.

American Idiot is a great album PERIOD. Should it be capitalized as punk? No. But it has a distinctly punk sound to it. And yes you can be punk and talk about politics. Just look at the DK's.
