RELEASED 12 NOVEMBER
VIDEO: Green Day — Stray Heart
You wait years for a new Green Day record, then three come along at once.
This, the second in the band’s ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tre! trilogy, invites us to pretend we’re at a high school bash somewhere in suburban California — where tracks such as Fuck Time, Wild One and Makeout Party champion the high-fiving, beer-chugging pop punk for which this three-come-four-piece has become most celebrated.
If this album were a person, it would be a 20-something skater named Cody. Recklessly hedonistic, quietly sensitive, moderately politicised, Cody can be pretty fun to be around, but over the years we'll probably lose touch.
So no, ¡Dos! doesn’t break new musical territory, but Green Day aren’t a jack-of-all-trades here. Just the master of one.
