Product Description

Product Description

Original Broadway cast recording of American idiot featuring music played by Green Day. Based on Green Day's chart-topping 2004 album American Idiot, the musical and the cast recording include every song from American Idiot, as well as several songs from the band's GRAMMY Award-winning current album 21st Century Breakdown. Green Day wrote the score to the show which follows the exhilarating journey of a new generation of young Americans as they strive to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. Billie-Joe Armstrong wrote the lyrics and co-wrote the book with the show's director, Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). Armstrong is also the album's producer. The album's arrangements and orchestration were done by Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), who is the show's music supervisor, orchestrator and music arranger. These songs are sung by the cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical beyond compare! July 7 2014
By Dominic TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not much of a "musicals" kind of guy, but this isn't it at all. This is Green day music for the masses.

It's amazing, plain and simple.

I actually saw the show live and the album does it justice. There isn't a bad song on either discs.

Like many, I have a been a Green Day fan since Dookie, but this album is appropriate for everybody, my 7 year-old son loves it and so does my 68 year-old mother.

DONT hesitate to buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Musical I Ever Saw April 4 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has got to be the best musical I ever saw. I never really listened to Green Day since Dookie but I am over 40 now and found the love of my life. I take her out to a lot of sporting events, concerts, etc. When I saw that this Broadway play was coming to town I decided to see it with her. It was a story about my life 25 years ago. All the things that I did when I was into punk rock, friends joining the army while others passed away. I have found renewed appreciation for the work of Billie Joe Armstrong. Simply genius & moving. Thanks Billie Joe.

5.0 out of 5 stars FAB-U-LOUS April 20 2010
By Whatsername1234 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a huge Green Day fan, I wasn't sure if I would like the cast recording album, as it's not Billie Joe singing on it, but I've just listened to the sample tracks, and think its absolutely fabulous. The female voices and multi-vocal harmonies give a totally different dimension to what was/is one of the best (IF NOT THE BEST) albums released in the last 30 years, and the additional tracks (ie Favorite Son/Too Much Too Soon + the 21 CB tracks etc) just add the icing to the cake. Now all I have to do, is see if I can buy it, as it's not out in the UK yet !!!!!!!!

****UPDATE - MY IMPORT COPY CAME TODAY IN THE POST (6th May), AND IT'S JUST AS GOOD AS I HAD HOPED, ESPECIALLY WITH THE TRACK 22 - When its Time, WHICH IS ACTUALLY GREEN DAY/Billie Joe SINGING A PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SONG... [Not sure if the UK version due out next week is going to get this extra track, hence the reason for buying from the USA]
I really like the way they have mixed Last of the American Girls/She's A Rebel into a single song.

Would recommend this as a "must have item" to any Green Day collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the show...Love the soundtrack April 21 2010
By C. Burgess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw the show in NYC the other night and was simply blown away. I have always been a pretty good (but not huge) Green Day fan, but this show gave me huge new respect for them. These songs rock. Yes, it's different to hear someone other than BJA sing them, especially the female voices, but the arrangements fill the songs out really well, and there is a major depth of emotion in them. This CD is going to stay on repeat for a long time in my player!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Cast Ablum of the Year April 26 2010
By T. J. Burzynski II - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Love the original album on which this show is based. I was very excited to hear the Cast Album was coming out so soon. I got it from iTunes that day it came out and it has been on repeat ever since. The vocal and orchestral arrangements are GORGEOUS! The vocal performers are all top notch! I can't find ANYTHING to complain about with this CD. The most beautiful song on the CD has got to be "21 Guns." The voices, the arrangements, the lyrics all wonderful. As a Green Day fan and a Broadway Fanatic, this is the perfect marriage of two very different genres. Plus the awesome review in the NY Times is nice too. This CD would be the perfect addition to ANY CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the Tonys! April 22 2010
By Steven Valenti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The inherent theatricality of Green Day's seminal modern rock opera "American Idiot" on disc meant it was only a matter of time until, like The Who's "Tommy," it wound up on stage. And here it is, represented by this brilliant cast recording--a thrilling listen that proves, like "Tommy, "that a mark of a great musical piece is that it holds up in various incarnations. Such is the power of the music that it does not falter a bit without Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. John Gallagher Jr., Tony Vincent, Rebecca Naomi Jones, and the rest of the talented cast flesh out this story of disaffected youth, circa 2004, impressively (assisted by some added tracks from "21st Century Breakdown.") Congrats to Green Day and the creative team for holding to their vision and taking a risk with this show. This ranks immediately as one of the great rock musical cast recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new home for Green Day May 9 2010
By L. Dando - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At first, I was a bit hesitant to buy the cast recording of American Idiot. I am a huge Broadway fan (and a big John Gallagher Jr. fan as well), but I already love the original American Idiot album, and I couldn't see how I would enjoy listening to different people singing Green Day's original songs. How wrong I was!

The original Broadway cast of American Idiot bring something so unique and engaging to an already incredible album. The new voices (and Tom Kitt's arrangements) only enhance the album's story, and this recording brings an entirely new energy to the original songs. A familiar album takes on a whole new life with the cast recording, and I just can't wait to see this show on Broadway.

Green Day is one of the last bands whose work I would expect to see with an original Broadway cast recording, but they have certainly found a home in this new territory.

If you're a Green Day fan: BUY THIS ALBUM!
If you're a Broadway fan: BUY THIS ALBUM!
