Album: Green Day, ¡Uno! (Reprise)

The Independent Culture

This, the first salvo of a 3CD campaign that will see two further albums released by mid-January, finds Green Day's devotion to the most basic of rock formats resulting almost inevitably in some of the dullest music released all year.

The brisk punk riffing chugs along efficiently, but it's a case of sheep in wolf's clothing: just patronising corporate rock masquerading, in sweary adolescent anthems as somehow anti-establishment. One wonders, listening to their baffling antipathy in "Kill the DJ", just what a playlist staple such as Green Day has to complain about as regards airplay.
