Product Description

2009 release, the Punk trio's long-awaited eighth studio album,. The album is the best-selling trio's first studio album since 2004's two-time Grammy Award-winning Punk Rock opera American Idiot, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles, and went on to sell more than 12 million copies worldwide. 21st Century Breakdown is divided into three acts: "Heroes and Cons," "Charlatans and Saints," and "Horseshoes and Handgrenades," and follows a young couple, Christian and Gloria, through the mess and promise of the century so far. Songs include "Know Your Enemy", "21 Guns", "East Jesus Nowhere", "Before the Lobotomy", and "Restless Heart Syndrome."

Being a fan of Green Day for more than 15 years I was more than happen to pre-order this album last month. For anyone expecting this to be American Idiot 2 you should go stand in the corner right now! There is nothing more annoying than people who listening to an album with the feel that "this album should blow the last one out of the water" instead of enjoying an album for what it is and not what came before it. With that out of the way I have only one complaint which is the cover of Elvis' "That's All Right" because honestly it just didn't sound that great...but that's my opinion. However I very much enjoyed the cover of The Rolling Stones "Like A Rolling Stone" possibly even more than the original (sorry Mick). All and all its was a fantastic listen....especially if you pre-ordered the deluxe edition. Can't wait to see them in concert this summer, cheering and singing along in crowd. In conclusion its a must buy for Green Day fans and anyone who is sick of having Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers shoved down their throat.

This disc will likely be the big winner at next year's Grammy Awards, the talk around the water cooler, the catalyst for a sold-out summer tour, the top selling rock album of the year on any preferred medium, etc. etc. etc. It's been getting rave reviews, it's been on everyone's lips, the band has appeared on several magazine covers and talk shows (recently, the Colbert Report, upping even FURTHER, if possible, their cool factor among liberal American youth). Is the album worth all the buzz? Absolutely.

I could rave on and on about it song by song, and explain in great detail, all of its nuances and the use of story-telling merged with music, I could discuss the character development, the themes of disillusionment and loss, the unique production (oftentimes including orchestral arrangements) and of course, Billy Joe Armstrong's vastly matured songwriting and voice, and the band's tight instrumentation - tighter than ever before, actually... but there just isn't enough space in this box.

What I will say, is that make no mistake - I'm not a die-hard Green Day fan, I only own one of their albums (the fantastically bratty 'Nimrod'), and I'm certainly not well-versed in their back catalog. However, there is no way I can deny this great new record. It has everything that makes music worth listening to; substance, fun, moments of pensive reflection, moments of supreme anger, romance, storytelling, politics (personal and broader-based), and melody. And it does it all without a shred of childish irony or lame, weak jokes.

I'm not a Green Day fan.

I want to get that out first so that anyone reading this doesn't just think I'm a rabid Green Day fan pumping up an album from their favorite band. I've got nothing against the band, mind you. They just haven't been on my radar.

Okay, that said, I want to state for the record (no pun intended) that this album is one of the best rock albums I've heard in my lifetime. Every song is catchy, inventive and is a fantastic melding of instruments and lyrics. There's not a song here I don't like. Personal favorites are Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, 21st Century Breakdown, Static Age, Murder City, 21 Guns. But I love them all. Even the bonus track, Lights Out, on the Japanese import is great!

It's rare these days to find an album this strong with no filler. Although I was pulling for AC/DC (my personal favorite band) to win rock album of the year, it was no slight to lose out to Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown. If you like rock music, you'll like this album. It's an instant classic and one our grand kids will be listening to.

In a word: amazing!

By Paul S. Power TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Sept. 4 2009
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to fathom that Green Day has actually been bashing away for over 20 years. Indeed, the cleverest thing they did was to make us think that in the early days they were just a bunch of 'dookie' flinging goofballs. That all changed when lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong gave us the anthemic "Good Riddance (time of your life)". We are now used to hearing a band that can rock out one minute ("American Idiot" and "Minority") and get deep and philosophical the next ("Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams") and that they are so deft at both is testament to them being one of the cleverest bands on the airwaves today.
This album is the band's second "Rock Opera" CD, following "American Idiot" and this is where I get a bit lost. As with the previous CD, it's hard to sometimes connect the dots and see a thread or path connecting the songs into a collective vision. I'm sure that a lot of sweat and toil went into creating this 3 act opus, but to be honest, the majority of the songs can stand alone and can also be enjoyed as such.
The first song to hit the airwaves was the hit single "Know Your Enemy" and to all it was the familiar sounds of the bombastic punk-inspired band we first came to know and love. Less than 2 months later, "21 Guns" was released, and by that time the album was already in the number one spot on music charts around the world. Green Day had done it again, commercial success without musical compromise; punk AND profit, if you will.
Looking at some of the other tracks, my favourite has to be "Peacemaker"; it's a Celtic/Gypsy combination that rocks hard in a party fashion, and the same can be said for "Viva La Gloria (Little Girl)".
