Editorial Reviews

American Idiot follows the exhilarating journey of a new generation of young Americans as they struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world, borne along by Green Day's electrifying score. This high-octane show includes every song from the acclaimed album American Idiot, as well as several songs from the band's Grammy-nominated new release, 21st Century Breakdown.

As a huge Green Day fan, I wasn't sure if I would like the cast recording album, as it's not Billie Joe singing on it, but I've just listened to the sample tracks, and think its absolutely fabulous. The female voices and multi-vocal harmonies give a totally different dimension to what was/is one of the best (IF NOT THE BEST) albums released in the last 30 years, and the additional tracks (ie Favorite Son/Too Much Too Soon + the 21 CB tracks etc) just add the icing to the cake. Now all I have to do, is see if I can buy it, as it's not out in the UK yet !!!!!!!!

****UPDATE - MY IMPORT COPY CAME TODAY IN THE POST (6th May), AND IT'S JUST AS GOOD AS I HAD HOPED, ESPECIALLY WITH THE TRACK 22 - When its Time, WHICH IS ACTUALLY GREEN DAY/Billie Joe SINGING A PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SONG... [Not sure if the UK version due out next week is going to get this extra track, hence the reason for buying from the USA]
I really like the way they have mixed Last of the American Girls/She's A Rebel into a single song.

Would recommend this as a "must have item" to any Green Day collection.

I saw the show in NYC the other night and was simply blown away. I have always been a pretty good (but not huge) Green Day fan, but this show gave me huge new respect for them. These songs rock. Yes, it's different to hear someone other than BJA sing them, especially the female voices, but the arrangements fill the songs out really well, and there is a major depth of emotion in them. This CD is going to stay on repeat for a long time in my player!

Love the original album on which this show is based. I was very excited to hear the Cast Album was coming out so soon. I got it from iTunes that day it came out and it has been on repeat ever since. The vocal and orchestral arrangements are GORGEOUS! The vocal performers are all top notch! I can't find ANYTHING to complain about with this CD. The most beautiful song on the CD has got to be "21 Guns." The voices, the arrangements, the lyrics all wonderful. As a Green Day fan and a Broadway Fanatic, this is the perfect marriage of two very different genres. Plus the awesome review in the NY Times is nice too. This CD would be the perfect addition to ANY CD collection.

The inherent theatricality of Green Day's seminal modern rock opera "American Idiot" on disc meant it was only a matter of time until, like The Who's "Tommy," it wound up on stage. And here it is, represented by this brilliant cast recording--a thrilling listen that proves, like "Tommy, "that a mark of a great musical piece is that it holds up in various incarnations. Such is the power of the music that it does not falter a bit without Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. John Gallagher Jr., Tony Vincent, Rebecca Naomi Jones, and the rest of the talented cast flesh out this story of disaffected youth, circa 2004, impressively (assisted by some added tracks from "21st Century Breakdown.") Congrats to Green Day and the creative team for holding to their vision and taking a risk with this show. This ranks immediately as one of the great rock musical cast recordings.

I have tickets for the Broadway musical touring company's "American Idiot" this month, and I'm thankful I got this CD so that I'll know what I'm seeing! The album notes explain the plot and has the words to the songs (I can't always understand them), so I know I'll enjoy the show much more. Of course, the show won't have Billie Joe Armstrong (love his unique voice), but it does have his songs.

At first, I was a bit hesitant to buy the cast recording of American Idiot. I am a huge Broadway fan (and a big John Gallagher Jr. fan as well), but I already love the original American Idiot album, and I couldn't see how I would enjoy listening to different people singing Green Day's original songs. How wrong I was!

The original Broadway cast of American Idiot bring something so unique and engaging to an already incredible album. The new voices (and Tom Kitt's arrangements) only enhance the album's story, and this recording brings an entirely new energy to the original songs. A familiar album takes on a whole new life with the cast recording, and I just can't wait to see this show on Broadway.

Green Day is one of the last bands whose work I would expect to see with an original Broadway cast recording, but they have certainly found a home in this new territory.

If you're a Green Day fan: BUY THIS ALBUM!
If you're a Broadway fan: BUY THIS ALBUM!

American Idiot is one of my top 5 albums of all time. It speaks to my life and my heart in many, many ways. I specifically didn't buy this for years because I was afraid it would make me like the Green Day album that was so much a part of my life, less. I was so surprised to find this is a truly amazing and inspirational rendition of the album by a seriously talented cast of Broadway actors. Buy it right now! It is different yes, but you will love it! I can't stop listening. Rebecca Naomi Jones is a lioness and absolutely amazing as Whatsername...

If you feel that Green Day is the only band that can do justice to their music, you probably won't enjoy this album. However, if you're open to a different and very interesting adaptation of their music, you might really enjoy this album. Besides the songs from the original Green Day album, it includes a few Green Day songs from other albums that were added to the show as well as a synopsis of the book for the show. I found it very enjoyable, but I have friends who really didn't see much in it.
