wow that nightlife song is god awful.

stray heart is a solid song. but i mean, nothing earth shattering.

Robb 10/08/12 10:05 PM

I don't like some of BJ's inflections during the verses (especially the "Never let you go" part), but overall I really like it. The bouncy bass in the verses is fun, and I'm loving that chorus.

Robb 10/08/12 10:07 PM

And I'm now listening to Nightlife.

Jeez. I like the bass line and I also like... I guess I only like the bass line.

This is dreadful.

I don't think it's trendy to hate them. I just don't like how they sound now. Not trying to be a hipster, I just don't think what they're releasing sounds good. People are funny.

Not bad.

Are you unaware that James Cameron raised the bar? He did that because James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is... James Cameron.

Only as good as the worst song? That's a strange rationale there bub.

Understandable, but I personally can't do that. I always think an album is only as good as its worst song. Sure there will be a few decent tracks on each of the three albums, but I'm not willing to pay for something when it has this kind of filler.

Not really. An album can't be considered great if it has a shitty song on it. It has to be more than just a collection of songs with some ok, some good, and some duds for me to not consider it a waste of time. Less is more, and Green Day should have trimmed the fat with this release.

I actually really dig this. It's got a cool Gorillaz vibe to it.

This is really bad.

only one of two things are possible here
1. you are a robot
2 you have no soul.

I like this, at least it doesn't sound like anything else released under the "Green Day" label. Not a fan of Uno at all.

they should've just taken the 3 best songs off all 3 records and made and ep.

I'm glad someone said it, so that I didn't have to.

Anyway, I didn't think this song was bad. I wouldn't call it really good or anything, but it certainly isn't upsetting either.

I actually gave it a chance this time. I've probably pressed play on it like 200 times and stopped it after 3 seconds because of how awful I thought it was. I listened to the whole thing last night and actually liked it! Then again I like Kill The DJ and Troublemaker.. I guess I like change. Maybe if these songs came out from a different band people would like them more.
