5.0 out of 5 stars Un perfecto tributo, para una perfecta banda Oct. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
Un perfecto tributo para una gran banda que se lo tenia bien merecido. buenas banda tocando algunas de las mejores canciones de Green day y agregandoles un toque particular. lo unico malo es que la canciòn time of your life (una de las mejores)no esta presente, ni ninguna cancion del Imsomniac, un album no muy popular pero, con sencillos muy buenos como brain stew o walking contradicction. a mi pareser un exelente tributo para una de las mejores bandas de punk del planeta

2.0 out of 5 stars A Shade of Brown-Green Feb. 7 2004
By Patrick
Format:Audio CD
This one really disappointed me. I brought this album because I am a huge Green Day fan, and I was interested in how other bands, including Weezer, imitated them. All I can say is that no one can cover these songs even half as well as the original. Weezer's version of Worry Rock was frightening, and the other bands were mediocre, at best. All in all, a total waste of money. No one can sing like Billie Joe.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre June 16 2012
By CountDruckula - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A bad "tribute" to a great band that deserves better. mediocre bands (with the exception of Weezer) trying to pull off some of the best songs in the Green Day catalog. Wester's cover of "J.A.R." is downright embarrassing. What's worse is that the song "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" (one of their most known songs) is not present, nor any of Insomniac songs,(an album not very popular but is very good and simple). Seriously why didn't they cover "Brain Stew/Jaded" or "Walking Contradiction"? it is an unexceptional tribute to one of the best punk bands of the 90s.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not Dookie: Just A Turd July 11 2012
By Todd Northcutt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's hard for iconic songs to be made any better, even in supposed tribute. My expectations for tribute albums are therefore generally low. Even expecting nothing from Different Shade of Green I was disappointed. It is literally the lowest rated album in my iTunes collection.

The album opens passably with a decent cover of '2000 Light Years Away' but generally goes downhill from there. The Dookie covers are, but far, the worst. 'When I Come Around' is just downright embarrassing. If this was intended as a tribute it falls far short and ends up being closer to mockery.

4.0 out of 5 stars a lighter shade Nov. 13 2004
By The Ricker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pretty decent tribute to one of the best bands of all time. Too bad there werent a few more popular bands but i guess it doesnt matter a few of these songs just sound too similar to the original version which is cool but im sure theyre were other bands who couldve done a better version. The songs/bands that stood out were the ones that did their own thing and made it sound awesome still. Inspection 12 and wirebox are both very good of incorporating other sounds/ instruments. When i come around in female voclas is pretty damn cool. Taking the fall did a great Redundant making me like that song even more now. B. Hayes is Dead do a hilarious All by myself. The sound is awesome listening to some of the older Lookout material you can definetly tell how much technology has changed in like 13 years or whatever. i heard there gonna remaster those old lookout! albums. I bet theyre gonna sound powerful now. Also give props to rudiger who did an awesome job on 2000 light years away and pensive did a cool and different job on Chritie road. Also I dont know what the big deal is about Weezer's cover it wasnt all that great. I've heard better. Rivers doesnt even sound like himself he sounds British or something. it's weird cause he says hug instead of f*ck. overall pretty good release. Not as good as the ramones tribute album but better than Nirvana's probably equal to Weezer's.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tribute Albums Never Work July 28 2006
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
They just don't. Anyway, this album is not very good at all. The production quality of it isn't good, and half these bands don't even have their own albums. There is good reason for this, a lot of these bands suck. Artists are allowed to take a certain amount of liberty when doing covers, but some of these go too far, especially when you don't seem to be signed to a label.

One of these is "Macy's Day Parade". The original version of this song is acoustic and is about three and a half minutes long. The cover on here, in my opinion, makes a mockery of it. They may have tried to make it different in a good way, but it doesn't work. "She" goes along the same lines as this as well.

The cover of "J.A.R" sounds like New Found Glory, but way more nasaly(I know, I didn't think it was possible either). Then there is "FOD". Another when they tried to make it different but fail to make it good. "Redundant" sounds nothing like the original; during the verses, the singer sounds like Trent Reznor on "Hurt", especially the opening one. Plus they changed up the guitars in a wierd way.

"Minority" is missing the harmonica, and the singer isn't a good singer. However, they did get the music the closest. "Going to Pasalacqua" is just sad. "Christie Road" sounds like an even worse version of Hoobastank. And, Weezer, if you're going to do a cover, you can't just change the words. If you don't want to swear, then choose a different song.
And don't listen to whoever said Avril Lavigne did a good cover of "Basket Case".
