It sounds like they've just taken all the songs and progressions that didn't make American Idiot & 21st Century breakdown and put them into 3 cd's. They're catchy songs but they really aren't saying anything. Instrumentally it's simple, but still catchy. Lyrically it's all terrible. Did they just get trashed and write 3 cd's of lyrics in one night? The lyrical detail of the last 2 albums was very impressive. It provoked a lot of thought, and I really respected that. Based on what i've heard, i don't think i'll be getting these albums. It sounds like a way to make some extra money. If you can release 3 albums in 1 year, how good can the quality of the work be?
I don't agree with them doing this to make extra money. If anything. they will probably lose some. But yea, agree with everything else. This will be their first album I don't get.
