Fell For You sounds good. Vocally he sounds like his Nimrod days. Honestly don't know how you can like Green Day and not be OK with that song. Some of these tunes are meant to just be fast, loose party songs. Like Lady Cobra, that's just a fucking jamming rock song. Yes it's simple and straight-forward, but anyone who plays music must hear that and think, "Wow, that must be fun as shit to play as a band." Same goes for Make-out Party. Let Yourself Go is just a throwback Green Day song, don't see how you could hate it, Oh Love has a great chorus and it's a real grower. Kill the DJ and Nightlife just seem to be experimental songs, a band that is 20 years into their career trying new things. Some of it works and some of it doesn't, but I'm not going to denounce them for taking risks. People need to chill out, invite some friends over, crack open some beers, put this shit on, and get weird. Quit over-thinking and analyzing Green Day, they've always just been a 3 chord pop band anyway.
