The biggest issue for 21CB for me was all the filler. I think a THREE album trilogy like this is going to have a ton of filler. They could make ONE great record but they're going to mix 13-14 good songs with 30-40 bland songs.

Same issue I had with In Defense. Half of it was really good and the other half was just...okay.

The first punk album I bought was Dookie on tape in 1995. I grew up on Green Day my whole life and loved them for 17 years. That being said, American Idiot and 21st Century were their best two albums. Bring on the hate for that comment, forum warriors..

I'm very excited for this, because I love me some ambitious Green Day.

Im so done with the concepts. I like their whole discography, but I was really hoping we'd get another Warning or Nimrod. Guess not.

This ruined my otherwise fine day. Let me guess, they'll release it as a three pack eventually with a free thing of eyeliner. Fuck what they've become.

We're not in Berkeley anymore....

I'm wondering if this means each album will sound relatively different. Or at the very least, represent something thematically. If it's three albums that sound like a 21st Century Breakdown/American Idiot? I'm gonna be pretty bummed. But if one album sees them continuing down that road, while another is a "return to roots" pop-punk type album, while the other is a more laidback, Warning-ish outing? That'd be fuckin' sweet.

Not to mention a pretty smart way to move forward, push it as far as it can go...And steer away from the "concept" album. By making the music the "concept." Just random thoughts, really...

It's cool if you don't agree. It is what it is.

Haha, I get it! it's funny because you know nothing about the albums and assume that they could not potentially release another one to meet your ridiculously high standards.

I'm excited for this. I was also excited to read all the comments where 23-year-olds talk about how much they miss early Green Day. Cause you know they were 7 when Dookie came out so they miss it. Can we have some more of those comments in here?

...they didn't say anything about these being concept albums. I don't really get where you guys are getting that, other than the fact that the last two have been concept albums. All they've said is that it's a trilogy of albums. That could mean anything.

That being said, I do hope they're staying away from the concept albums, because they're better when they don't have to stay within a certain structure. I'm definitely excited about this

Surprised they're not trying to push it up by a month and try for 3 #1 albums in a year.

Hmmm very interesting point. That would've been the smart thing to do!
