Product Description

Product Description

Certified at 2 million units by the RIAA. (2/96)

Donner un successeur au multiplatiné Dookie n'a pas été une mince affaire, mais le trio de Berkeley s'en tire haut la main. Cet Insomniac pérennise la même recette, mitonnée à base de culture destroy light et d'assauts pop. Plus proche des seventies britanniques que de ses condisciples d'Offspring, Green Day jette un pont entre l'Angleterre des Buzzcocks ("Stuart"), des Ruts ("Brain Stew"), voire des Who ("Panic Song"), et l'Amérique des Ramones ou des Real Kids pour échafauder un power punk mélodique et pétillant. Les singles inclus, "Armatage Shanks" et "Geek Stink Breath", sont de purs bonheurs, sucrés et acidulés, qui entérinent à jamais une autre victoire de nos gavroches californiens. --Jean-Luc Manet

When I bought Insomniac at a second hand shop by Greenday, I didn't know what to expect. Nimrod, Dookie and Warning I really enjoyed, one thing was wrong with those albums in my opinion. They were too mellow, they were alternative. When putting Greenday's Insomniac in my CD player, I was blown away. From track 1-14, Greenday showed me a side of them I've never heard before, 100% pure punk rock. No songs on this album were mellow, for the 33 minutes of it, I was blown away. Blown away by a new style. A very under appreciated album this was, even though it was probably the best punk album of 1995.
A Songs on this Album:
To a fan of punk rock, every song on this album credits an A, however, some are just remarkablel:
Brat: The second song of the track, one of the best. Starts with the lyrics "Mom and dad don't look so hot these days.." Opening the track up for what's to come. One line of the song really opens you up for what's to come, "I'll just have to wait for them to die." A great track.
Geek Stink Breath: To any other Greenday album, this song is fast.. To this album, it is mellow, but the remarkable beat and lyrics by Billy Armstrong (Who gives out a remarkable performance), make this song so great.
'86: A fast beat, great guitar/bass performance, great lyrics.. Great chorus as well.. What else could one ask for?
Panic Song: The Panic Song opens up with a fast bass/drum performance. As it continues guitar riffs join in. The beat of this song, along with the drums and lyrics make this amazing. It shows how great a chemistry Greenday has togehter.
Brain Stew: The song everyone's probably heard. Opens up with a slow guitar. The guitar repeats three chords over and over, as Billy Joe Armstrong talks about Insomnia.

Everyone who writes reviews on this album has called it Green Day's best. However, I'll always have to say that Dookie is the best Green Day album, just because it's so unforgettable. And after releasing Dookie, one of the biggest selling albums of the decade...well, they have to come out with a completely different album. Which they did.
1. Armatage Shanks-- Pretty darn good. A very good chorus, with the line, "I must insist on being a pessimist." Which I would call sheer brilliance. A good way to start off the album. 7/10.
2. Brat-- I don't care much for this song. It's heavy, though, with funny lyrics about a little rich brat anxious for his parents to die so he can get their money. I still always skip it though. 5/10.
3. Stuck With Me-- One of my favorite Green Day songs ever. I have the lyrics written in my agenda for school. It's just so good, I can't describe it. 10/10.
4. Geek Stink Breath-- Very punk and enjoyable, until you get to the chorus. The song kicks majorly, but the chorus is too poppy and kinda ruins the song. It's very hard to understand Billie Joe at times, too. Still a great song though; the bridge instrumental is the best part. 8/10.
5. No Pride-- Guitar intro which leads into a pretty good song. The chorus is very good, and the lyrics cook. Good all around. 7/10.
6. Bab's Uvula Who?-- Probably my least favorite song on the album. It's just too repetitive in the lyrics: every line ends in "all wound up." The instruments are good, but I still don't like it. 4/10.
7. Panic Song-- A two-minute instrumental, which is good but, obviously, boring; and then [great] music to finish it off. The lyrics are about Billie Joe and Mike's anxiety disorder and panic attacks and such. Thank God for fast-forward, or else I'd skip the whole song. 7/10.
