Product Description

Amazon.ca

After two years off following the release of the genre-expanding Nimrod, the usually insouciant trio Green Day are open to some weighty self-analysis. Gone are the raging rants, cartoonish antics, and anthropological musings about the punk scene, replaced by an introspection that brings to mind Michael Stipe and Bono. Like the U2 frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong still hasn't found what he's looking for, but he knows where he's been and is eager to move past the days when Green Day were considered the clown princes of rock. Witness "Jackass," which cautions, "Everybody loves a joke, but no one likes a fool." Proving that they aren't fools, Green Day take a substantial step forward, exploring new rhythms, sonics, and subjects. While many of the tracks are still cheeky and infectious, the deceptively simple melodies belie a quest for meaning, faith, and fulfillment. There's a tentative optimism here that's tempered by irony and flashes of self-loathing. Still, Warning transcends the darkness that clouded 1995's Insomniac. No longer so under the sway of the Buzzcocks and the Ramones, this time Armstrong and company dip into the early rock canon--the Beatles and Bob Dylan, among them. As a result, their first self-produced album is more "Nowhere Man" than "Blitzkrieg Bop." --Jaan Uhelszki

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid outing for the Green Day boys Jan. 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
By now, if you've heard the opinions of many a punk rock fanatic, you'd believe Warning is the album where Green Day turns pop, sells out, and loses both the hardcore edge that propelled their 1994 album Dookie to smash status and, more recently, the genre-expanding innovation on 1997's Nimrod. When Warning debuted in October 2000, it generated a mixed reaction from both critics and the fan base. Its less than stellar reception was mirrored on the sales chart, where it debuted at #4 but quickly bottomed out.
But despite all the bad press, I really enjoy this album. While it rates a notch below Green Day's earlier outings, it's much more cathcy and upbeat than most other punk rock. Granted, Warning doesn't feature much of the high-octane intensity of similar bands like The Offspring, but I think Green Day sounds best in a simple, upbeat setting, the kind that made their 1994 breakout single "Basket Case" a smash. In Warning, the trio mixes it up a little with instruments like mandolins, saxaphones, and acoustic guitars, and the end result is a well-rounded package with plenty of zest and infectious hooks. Here's a track by track rundown:
Warning - 9/10 Great opener, nice use of acoustic guitars
Blood, Sex, and Booze - 9/10 Good guitars and chorus
Church on Sunday - 9.5/10 One of the album's best, upbeat and infectious
Fashion Victim - 8/10
Castaway - 9/10 Very catchy
Misery - 6.5/10 A little too unorthodox for my tastes, but at least they're not resting on their laurels
Deadbeat Holiday - 8.5/10 Great chorus
Jackass - 8/10 Pretty good. I especially like the jazzy portion
Hold On - 7.5/10 Also pretty good, I like the portion with just guitars and percussion
Waiting - 8/10
Minority - 8/10 Doesn't hold up fabulously over the years, but it's still catchy
Macy's Day Parade 9.5/10 A moving, quiet song in the vain of Good Riddance

5.0 out of 5 stars The Final Step in the "Green Day Holy Trinity" Jan. 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
This, Dookie, and Insomniac are what I like to call "The Holy Green Day Trinity" because they are my favorite (and therefore the best) Green Day records. Warning reminds me of "Road to Ruin" era Ramones mixed with "Give 'Em Enough Rope"/"London Calling" era Clash. It's just brilliant. It's like all of the catchy-ness of Dookie, the great punk rock lyrics of Insomniac, mixed with it's own sense of style. Although a much more laid back album than Dookie and Insomniac, it still maintains this sense of punk rock sneer that gives it so much character. Let's do a run through of the songs real quick.
1. Warning - Proof that acoustic guitars can still rock just as well as electric. This song just gives the message to live your life and stop worrying about all the rules society gives you to obey.
2. Blood, Sex and Booze - An almost rockabilly-esque song about a sadist/masochistic lifestyle.
3. Church on Sunday - Taking us back to the songwriting style of early Green Day, this basically comes from the perspective of a guy telling a girl that he likes that he'll do anything if she'll be with him. (Ramones - I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend, anyone?)
4. Fashion Victim - I love this song. A driving punk rock fist pumping song about life style obsession and materialism. Reminds me of early Clash.
5. Castaway - A catchy song about being a social outcast and liking it that way.
6. Misery - Is this really Green Day? A great experimental song (featuring Tre Cool on Farfisa, hey!), telling a great story about several characters all interlocked with each other in some coincidental way. Great songwriting.
7. Deadbeat Holiday - Absolutely my favorite song on the album. Foot-stomping pop-punk featuring great lyrics about being an outcast by definition but still holding true to yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent evolution of a great band. Dec 25 2003
By Sean
Format:Audio CD
ok first of all, what in the hell are people whining about green day selling out? With warning green day changed their sound, breaching into new territory (much like the clash for all you punk purists out there). Songs like misery and deadbeat holiday realy show green day can do soemthing other than simple 3 chord punk drivel. Warning is a much more intelligent album, billie joe and co realy expanding their sound. Some people have said the organ riff from misery was a rip off from some other tune, but alot of tunes sound the same (try comparing the chorus of rancid's "arrested in shanghai" to like a rolling stone!)
Warning: 7/10 but can get a little boring
blood,sex and booze: 9/10 a catchy tune proving they are still sticking to their "punk roots"
church on sunday: 6/10 a little pretentious bit a good tune
fashion victim: 10/10 i love this tune, it's a very poppy tune with alot of spite about the whole trendy punk thing
castaway: 9/10 my second favourite on this album.
misery: 10/10 excellent tune, new ground for green day
deadbeat holiday: 10/10 excellent tune, another clever change from their usual style
hold on: 5/10
jackass: 7/10
waiting: 6/10 a little light for my tastes
minority: 8/10 a realy good tune (i dont understand how people can love this tune and hate the rest of the album?!?!)
macy's day parade: 5/10 pretty average tune.
overall: 8/10 not as good as some of their previous stuff but by NO means a sell out, awful album or pop album.
buy this album! it IS worth it, that is unless you are a single minded fool... i mean the definition of "punk" is so broad now even (shudder) good charlotte can qualitfy!
anyhow happy listening! (and please forgive me for my awful spelling)
