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

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, different Green Day album. Feb. 14 2014
By Dominic TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After seeing the American Idiot musical, I decided to complete my Green Day discography. Out of the six CDs I ordered, I started with this one and was stuck on it for two weeks.

It's a little different from the others and for me it is a good thing. I am a huge GD fan, but let's face it, sometimes it feels like they copying themselves. Warning is a very good album, right up there with Am Idiot and 21st Century.

Don't hesitate to get!

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout a brand new hope..... June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Green Day is a good band but they just like Metallica, eventually slowed things down. Nevertheless this is a good album with some highlights like Blood, Sex and Booze and the incredible beautiful and fantastic Macy's Day Parade. This song is really great, and definetly their best ballad.
NI!

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 Different in a really good way June 8 2004
By Steph99
Format:Audio CD
Green Day was already my favorite band and this cd ranks right up there with all the rest of their cds and maybe even exceeds them. It's different than their other cds, but you still get the same good vibe. My favorite songs are Warning, Minority, Deadbeat Holiday, and Waiting. I think more than half the songs on this cd should be on "International Superhits." In closing, I recommend it to any fan of the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple And Catchy. April 15 2004
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
Very simple, but highly catchy music.
These guys are definetely tops when it comes to the recent pop/punk genre.
If you love short songs that are easy to sing along with, then this CD is for you.
Similar to what The Ramones did in their heyday.
