It's better than I thought. Bit too mid-tempo here and there, couple boring tracks...but I get what they're going for. Some of that Cheap Trick love. I can dig.

I'll have to give this a listen. I stopped caring about these guys after American Idiot.

Not a fan of the songs that just rely on chords since they've done that way too much throughout their career. I honestly thought they stepped it up a lot with that for American Idiot and 21st Century, and now it seems they've taken a step backwards. I loved some of the guitar solos on the last two albums, and I'm not getting any of that either. But the melodies have been pretty decent as always. I feel like there's a little bit of each album here, it's just not as good as any of them. Low point is Troublemaker, they've played that riff twice before already. High point is Stay the Night.

(i made sure to not listen to too many of the releases before today)

Nuclear Family - very 50s sounding. not bad.
stay the night - solid track. nothing special. simple throw away track.
carpe diem - eh, the most eh track
let yourself go - by far the best track of the album. catchy, fun, punky, like it.
kill the dj - franz ferndiand, but i still really like this track.
fell for you - eh track.
loss of control - nothing speicla
troublemaker - boring track
angel blue - the songs are starting to morph together, that's not a good thing.
sweet 16 - beach boys. could be a good driving, beach song. very 50s again.
rusty james - haha combines like 100 green day songs.
oh love - we know

yeah i definitely get the vibe they're going for with 'uno'...makes me think that 2 and 3 will have different vibes?

as an album on its own its nothing too fantastic. let yourself go is my favorite track by far, but the rest of the tracks kinda just blend together. not enough standouts in my opinion.

6/10 album.

7/10 album.
You are very generous with your scoring if you think 6 or 7 of the songs are average or forgettable and still give it a 7/10.

honestly im NOT going to buy the entire album like i thought i was going to do (i bought american idiot, and 21st century and was happy)

i might just buy individual tracks here: let yourself go, kill the dj, and two more (i'm confident two of these songs will grow on me)
