Default "21st Century Breakdown"- Green Day

I haven't been this excited for an album in a LONG time. I've been a Green Day fan since I was about 12, and love all their old stuff. However, American Idiot came out when I was 16 and it changed my life. I still consider it a absolutely flawless album. So granted, I don't think the new record will be able to claim that. I'm still stoked though, and I'm loving what I've seen so far, from the format to the artwork.

I' am also very excited about the new album. It was American Idiot that got me into them, before that I just liked them a little and mostly just liked Good Riddance...I definitely want to catch them on their next tour.

I like a few songs. Haven't listened to their albums. Only songs they have brought out. I love "Minority."

How come, and have you listened to the whole record?
(I'm not asking to bitch at you, just that I know it turned some people off and I'm always curious as to why)

I was actually going to make a thread about this yesterday but I didn't get around to it so thanks! I think this is the most excited I've been about a record since American Idiot and Have A Nice Day. I liked the direction Green Day went in 2004 and I'm glad that they've decided to sorta, keep it in this direction. The album sounds like it's going to be a monster like American Idiot, but even more thematic. It's certainly going to be SO hard to top American Idiot because honestly, it's probably my favorite album of all-time (Yes, more than any other Bon Jovi record). So bring it on already!!!

There's been a lot of uproar and upset over the artwork but I like it

As for Green Day itself - Loved American Idiot when it came out, before I was a proper music fan. I loved Bullet In A Bible as well, even though I still haven't got round to watching the DVD yet. But anyhow, not into them much at all anymore but I'll give this album a listen, it sounds interesting.

Oh, and I prefered the live versions from Bullet more than the studio versions. Oh and Homecoming rocks And you may take that to the bank.

American Idiot was a great album IMO, and this looks like it could be good too ... I would hope so after it's been 5 years in the making!
