Product Description

Product Description

Let this be a Warning: "Green Day have risen from their two-year slumber, ready to reclaim their title as punk provocateurs." (Alternative Press) Returning to the raw power, freedom and excitement of their early days. Green Day, the band that sparked neo-punk, punk metal and the ska revival, offer Warning:, the most passionate and hope-filled album of their career. Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA. (2/01)


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

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

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!

2.Blood,Sex,and Booze-Good, but nothing special 7/10
3.Church on Sunday- again, good, but nothing special 7/10
4.Fashion Victim-The music isn't great, but I love the lyrics 8/10
5.Castaway-One of the better songs on the CD 9/10
6.Misery-Where did this come from???I don't particularly like it(its as anti-punk as possible), but its catchy 6/10
7.Deadbeat Holiday-Great Song,never gets old(one of my favorite quotes from the CD is from this song-"Your oldest allies are your long lost enemies")10/10
8.Hold On-Good song,but not their best 8/10
9.Jackass-Good,catchy song, but again not one of their best(has another great quote-"To know you is to hate you, so lovin you must be like suicide")8/10

On Warning, Green Day continues to evolve artisticly while maintaining the intensity that typifyed their first five albums. The standard three cord composition remains but like a good piece of minalamist art simplicity notes the removal of extranious noise. Accordions, mandolins and harmonicas are seemelesly intigrated for a sound that is both popy and complex. I do not think many punk rockers will buy this album but I believe that bucking convention and formula and continuing to take chances after five succsesful albums shows that the band has yet to "sell out" to dumbed down pop tastes. I do miss the masturbation refrences and raging guitar of the earlier albums but I suppose my tastes are evolving and I don't need constent overstimulation to enjoy a record. This is perhaps the most compelling part of the album, it is brutally simple yet amazingly complex. Bille Joe on songs like Macy's Day Parade almost starts to sound like Sting. Unlike so many bands that tire out and release lifeless corprate rock after a promising start, Green Day continues to inovate and rock.

First off I'm SICK of hearing Greenday "fans" scream 'sell-out' b/c ONE album isnt exactly what they like. Any true GD fan should be ashamed of criticizing a group that stayed true to themselves, even if they (GD) themselves changed.
I am like most ppl in saying their first CDs were awesome, even Insomniac. WARNING is a terrific album both lyrically and musically, and is easily the most listenable of any Greenday CD. Anyone who says the 3-chord power songs didnt get at least a TINY bit old is lying. That's why Nimrod was such a success, b/c they made it more interesting, just as they have here.
BS&B, Castaway, Jackass and Minority are all awesome songs, and good old GD. COS is good also as is Deadbeat Holiday and MDP. Waiting and the title track are both weak and annoying, and overall just garbage songs. The rest is nothing fantastic, but it's good solid music nonetheless. And GD still has the funny lyrics and good baselines that we love.
I think we can all agree that the main reason why we love or loved Greenday is because they were original and because they were real. COS, MDP and even Hold On are relative to BJ's life, and are REAL. I think Fashion Victim might've been a token song for us, but the rest IS Greenday, pure and true. Billie Joe once again, like in the beginning of his career, went against the crowd and came out w/ HIS music. He knew he'd ruffle some feathers w/ Warning, just as he did w/ Dookie and the Lookout! Records CDs, but he stayed true to himself. This isnt a group trying to be something it's not , and for that, I applaud them. Buy and enjoy this CD because it's terrific music, not because you're a punk-junkie living in the past.
