If you can't find more than one song you find enjoyable off of both Uno and Dos combined, then you are just blanket bitching. I do think they could have condensed this into one album, but releasing an album doesn't really mean what it used to. The record label is considering this one album according to their contract, so just look at it such as Green Day releasing every single thing they recorded this year to you (A, B,C sides?). I don't think anyone would be complaining as much if they just released some of this stuff digitally, but the fact that it is being put in an album form is giving it this stigma.

Damn. Really nice sound on this one.

In the UNO! liner notes, they had a "Quatro!" record with Jason White's face on it. I'd actually like to see them release it with the best of the 3 sessions on there. Granted, I won't buy it since I'll have the others, but it would be interesting to see what they think the best tracks from each release are.

Quatro's the documentary on the making of all 3 albums.

Exactly, almost everyone listens to music by selecting tracks on a computer now anyway so why not release all the songs you've been working on and let the fans decide which they want to listen to.

With Dos, every new song that found its way online has been met with positive comments, except the one with Lady Cobra. How can it have gone from "I like this much better than anything on Uno", "This sounds great, like Foxboro", etc, to being such a disappointment?

I hear a lot of The Network on Dosí nightlife isn't a great song but its unmemorable at worst, I don't think it deserves to be singled out as their worst song ever. That would be Christians Inferno for me.

sounds good. really like the vocals in this. sort of has a Warning-vibe to it.

Never listened to what was coming out - just heard the album though, and deleted it.

Gotta let Dos sink in a little more but thought there were some standout tracks on there. Probably should've just picked the best 12-14 to make one killer album. Still better than Blink 182's Neighborhoods though. Now THAT is one confused record.

I'll never understand, seeing as we're about the same age and probably had many of the same coming-of-age moment with music, why you like Blink 182 more than Green Day.

Agreed. I gotta say, "Stay The Night" off Uno is on my top 5 all-time favorite GD songs.

I like Green Day's good albums. Not sure just you think I don't. :shrug:

And yet still better than the last 3 GD albums.
