Classic Green Day, and moving forward.,
This review is from: ¡TRÉ! [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
With an ambitious task of writing and releasing three brand new albums, I feel like Green Day wrapped it up quite nicely with Tre. The way that Billie described each album is spot on, and each album has their own storyline and vibe. I think it was a fun experience for the fans to listen to, and for the guys to write and record.
Green Day did a knockout job with Tre. The album was a lot of fun to listen to. Since the only that carries the album in my small college town is Walmart, it was already censored. So I drove the 40+ miles to get the uncensored version (As I did with the other two). Listening on the way back I found myself jamming to just about every track. 'Brutal Love' is a phenomenal opening to the record, with it's Doo-Wop feel and swaying rhythm. 'Missing You' is a nice little track, with a fun beat that feels great, and is rather upbeat. '8th Avenue Serenade' is another upbeat track, and one of my personal favorites. 'Drama Queen' has a nice happy melody, with some rather strange lyrics, but is a really good song after getting used to the lyrics. 'X-Kid' is another great track, and in my opinion is worthy of being a single. 'Sex, Drugs & Violence' is a fast paced song that could have fit on Uno! as well. 'A little boy named Train' takes some getting used to, but turns into a nice soothing little song. The next two, 'Amanda' and 'Walk Away' are both good songs, and Walk Away gives off a different vibe, about walking away from things. 'Dirty Rotten Bastards' is one of the best Green Day songs that I have EVER listened to. It's such a fun track, and is 6 minutes of great Green Day. Followed up immediately by another great track '99 Revolutions'. This song is another great song by Green Day. Wrapping up with 'The Forgotten', it's a nice piece of work, through and through.
Overall, this album definitely pushed Green Day forward as musicians and artists. I sincerely hope that this isn't the end of Green Day, as they are moving in a great direction. If you love punk, pop, and Green Day, this is a must buy.
