Un, deux, trois - Le Jour Vert?
In 2012 Green Day released their CD trilogy Uno, Dos, Tre. The previous album “21’st Century Breakdown” was a weak attempt to release another punk opera album like “American Idiot” but didn’t work this time. So therefore they returned to their roots with enough material for three albums. There have been al lot of reviews already with lots of negativity about that they should stick to their punk rock roots like on their first 4 albums but that’s
Let’s compare them. 37 songs are spread accross these albums. Uno and Tre are the most modern and accessible ones while Dos is more like their sideproject Foxboro Hot Tubs wich is titled as garage rock. Some songs also possess some tribute to rock’n’roll of the 50’s. Besides punk rockers we also get some ballads like they did with “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” and “Wake Me Up When September Ends”. The Forgotten” is an example of that and is from the soundtrack of Twilight Breaking Dawn. Uno and Tre give you great easy listening punk pop while Dos is bit more rougher but also holds the great “Stray Heart” you can easily sing along. All 3 albums as always got that
Uno: Nuclear Family / Stay the Night / Carpe Diem / Let Yourself Go / Kill the DJ / Fell for You / Loss of Control / Troublemaker / Angel Blue / Sweet 16 / Rusty James / Oh Love
