Album: Green Day, Uno! (Warner Bros)


Uno! is the first part of a trilogy: Dos! and Tre! (sic) will follow between now and January.

If the pop-punk veterans are about to use that time to embark on a bold sonic adventure, there’s no sign of that just yet. Uno! starts promisingly, but it’s soon obvious that the Clash of “Tommy Gun” is still their template. Furthermore, whatever political edge GD once had has apparently gone blunt. And there are two more albums’ worth to come? Oh joy.
