You may have had a hard time finding this, or the album 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy hours for the past few months. This is because these album were originally recorded for, and have been distributed since their release, by indie label Lookout Records. So why would that give you trouble finding them? Well, in 2005, Green Day rescinded their masters from the label, giving copyright control to their current label Reprise/Warner Bros.

So now we have this Kerplunk reissue. How does it measure up? In terms of artwork/packaging, everything is exactly the same as it used to be except it says Reprise instead of Lookout on the back. There is no mention of this being a reissue. Pop the disc in though, and you will find the sound has been remastered. Kerplunk always had sort of a quiet sound to it. With this remaster, the volume is louder and all of the instruments and vocals have been enhanced, making them stand out more and sound more crisp.

The album opens with 2,000 Light Years Away which is a Green Day classic and features their signature pop punk sound. The version of Welcome To Paradise on here is a different recording than what would wind up on 1994's Dookie (They re-recorded it for that album). The song is a classic though. One Of My Lies is another pop punk highlight and then there's the underrated No One Knows in all of its teenage confusion glory. The inclusion of the last 4 songs are also interesting because you get to hear Billie and Mike in the band Sweet Children before they had fully laid out the Green Day blueprint.

I'm not going to review every song. Basically, if you have heard Green Day on the Dookie - Nimrod albums, the songs on here will sit at home with you. The only difference is, they are more raw sounding. Billie Joe's voice is also more kidlike sounding. You can tell they were still perfecting their craft on here, but it's a fun listen and is a must for any fan of Green Day or pop punk.

Before Green Day's epic album "Dookie", there was "Kerplunk". An album that clearly shows the band at their beginning musical roots of punk. What may catch most off guard is the fact that even though they were slamming on their guitars and being as immature as possible, they still remained serious musicians. "No one knows" lyrics and tone flow differently from the whole album, much slower and more in depth.
But, the side of the band that most came to know and love is heard in full force throughout the album. To this date, I have not heard one band do a better punk cover of The Who's "My Generation" then Green Day. A great album in every aspect.
Whether they are playing Alternative ("Nimrod"), Punk ("Dookie" "Kerplunk"), or just showing full fledged maturity ("Warning"), Green Day never dissapoints.

Kerplunk Review
---------------

The album is fantastic and it has some of my all time favorite Green Day songs on it. "Christie Road," "No One Knows," "80," "One of My Lies," "2000 Light Years Away," and the first glance at one of their stadium anthems, "Welcome to Paradise." Their budget to record this CD was not stellar at all, I believe I read that they only got a couple thousand from their label at the time for it, but it is a step up from the quality of their first full length (which is also QUITE fantastic!).

I have always been a big believer of getting every album from a band that I love, and I got this album in an interesting order. I had "Dookie" first, then "Nimrod", then "Insomniac", then I bought this album, "1,039 / Smoothed Out Slappy Hours," and "Warning" all on the same day. There is a logical progression between each album (until you get to Warning that is), and Kerplunk showed some early signs of "Nimrod" with the guys not always using tons of overdrive (as was the case on "Dookie" and "Insomniac"). This album holds up very well with their later work though, and I recommend it to anyone really wanting to get to know the band. I do however know a few people that listen to "American Idiot" and nothing else, and that is a bummer, because they have some other work out there that is really amazing!

My Defense of the Band
-----------------------

I would just like to say to the MAJORITY of nay-sayers out there that are bashing Green Day for their success derived from "American Idiot": KNOCK IT OFF. It's ridiculous! The band has not sold out, at all. The music on "American Idiot" is amazing, and is the next logical progression for the band!

Green Day's second and final album with Lookout! Records, and much better quality than the first album off the Lookout! label (more funding went into this one). Includes first recording of the punk rock trio's hit 'Welcome To Paradise'. 'Christie Road' is a slower paced song about a place to escape to, much in the theme of the young Green Day. 'Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?', a song based on the main character in the classic book 'Catcher In The Rye' by J.D. Salinger, and The Monkees inspired 'Words I Might Have Ate' closes the album before the 4-track recording of the very early Green Day, Sweet Children. These and many more Green Day material make up the Kerplunk collection, which seem to be very much inspired by singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong's early musical interests. A fantastic Green Day album if you're into them, 'Kerplunk' has many punk-pop tunes that should keep you entertained until they release something new!
