Green Day - Uno

by Lewis Shepherd Rating:8 Release Date:2012-09-25

Green Day return with their ninth studio album, their first for three years, and the best bit is there are another two on the way as ¡Uno! is the first in their trilogy of new albums. Excited? Well you should be, as this album doesn't disappoint.

As a fan of Green Day's old stuff from back in the 1990s, I can honestly say I was not a big fan of their last two efforts and I found this a refreshing blast from the past. That's right, they've ditched the rock opera of the last 10 years and gone back to what they do best, which is great rock that makes you want to sing and dance around.

Standout tracks include 'Let Yourself Go' which makes you want to jump around and is very reminiscent of Dookie. 'Angel Blue' is one of the best tracks with its excellent guitar riffs and another rocky, jump-around chorus. 'Troublemaker', 'Carpe Diem' and Fell for You' add to the old school sound they've finally brought back. It's not all brilliant, however. The track 'Kill the DJ' falls a little short with its experimental, dance-rock sounds which get a little repetitive. It's still a good song but just doesn't match up to the others on offer.

Overall, this is a great rock record with pop twinges that will make you think its 1994 all over again. A brilliant comeback through and through.
