21st Century Breakdown

So, what does everyone think of Green Day's new album, 21st Century Breakdown?

Personally, I think that altogether, this is their best album to date, although some songs could be better or just not included. What do you think?

I've only heard one of Green Day's song that album Know the enemy. I think it's a catchy song top 10 for sure Very Happy... Eventually.
Oh yeah, the Album itself is selling insanely fast. It should make it to the top of Billboard soon.

EDIT: I just checked and 21st Century Breakdown is at the top of the Billboard 200.

Know Your Enemy was good, but I listened to the album while doing other things, and none of the songs particularly stood out. I'll have to give it a thorough listen to see if I missed any, but usually I just notice the songs that are really good.
I hear its more of the same though, with some quite good songs, but nothing special.
To me there is not alot on the album that I haven't heard before. It's a lot of the same sort of stuff. They played the full album on the radio a couple of weeks ago and there were a few songs where I actually thought it was an old green day song...

I'm not particularly fussed about this new album.
I REALLY like it!

Tracks 7-16 are the best
Lately I have heard a lot of old school Green Day fans saying that they do not like the new album at all. It seems to me that Green Day's style has changed a lot.

Especially now since its a rock opera.

I agree with Poly-gone. Thir style has changed. I was and still am a huge Green Day fan, but this new album does not do it for me. First off, I think they got cockey with American Idiot. This new record is way overproduced and quite frankly not that interesting. I respect the fact that they want to make another concept record but it will be hard to top American Idiot.
Next, as a fan from the early 90's, I can't stand going to concerts and feeling so old. Their fans are like 16-18 years old. I saw Foxboro Hot Tubs (GD side-project) at a 21 and older venue and that was amazing. Basically, I love Green Day live, but I will only see them again at 21 and up shows because I don't want to feel like I am at Hanna Montana show.

When was Green Day interesting?

The Album is OK.
But the previous the album "American Idiot" was better.
My favourite album is Dookie.
Alright, the thread is a little old, I'm writing more than a month after the last post, but seriously - I'm a big big big big big big fan of Green Day Embarassed

So, the new album is great.Of course, I enjoy when Billie is doing his own solos, like in 1039 smoothed out slappy hours, but Jason White is a great guitarist, so I really don't mind after all :]

I'm glad that Jason Freeze had the opportunity to play his instruments, e.g. the piano - it has some roles in the album Smile

It's a really successful album.Absolutely successful.Green Day have done it again Smile
