Is anyone else disappointed by this glut of new Green Day Stufff..?

I've loved Green Day since I first hear them back when 'Basket Case' was a track on... get this... a free cassette taped onto a magazine (SELECT, I think...)

Seen 'em live many times since then, been with them through highs and lows... but these three new albums ain't doing it for me, bar a few select tracks.

Granted, I've only heard the first and third albums, But you know how people always said that the Guns And Roses 'Use Your Illusion' albums had one brilliant album between them? I'm struggling to find a decent 14-track playlist from what I've heard. And I'm someone who thought '21st Century Breakdown' was a worthy follow-up to 'American Idiot'!

Put it like this, I can't be arsed to see them at the forthcoming stadium dates. I never thought I'd say that.

Thoughts, guys?

I've only bought UNO! so far and I can't exactly I'm rushing out to get the other two. I think this project was too ambitious and they should have stuck to just the one album.

I'm glad they dropped the concept album thing though.

The 'Use Your Illusions' had two brilliant albums between them tbh.

I've only had cursory listens to these ones but they seem fairly meh, kind of a regression after American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown. They may grow on me but there's nothing outstanding in any of the ones I've got through so far.

Tré is definitely the best, Dos the worst.

I do think there's a great album in here which I will display below. I have created a perfectly paced 5-star masterpiece from 3, 2 and 4 star albums. I tried to give it a narrative and a thematic body which I also suceeded in doing. This would have been a great conclusion to a trilogy starting with American Idiot.

Tracklist:

01. Stay the Night
02. Angel Blue
03. Rusty James
04. X-Kid
05. Baby Eyes
06. Wild One
07. Fell For You
08. Drama Queen
09. Amanda
10. Carpe Diem
11. 99 Revolutions
12. Missing You
13. Sweet 16
14. The Forgotten
15. Brutal Love
16. Dirty Rotten Bastards
17. Oh Love
18. See You Tonight (hidden track)

DirectorsCut, that's a damn good list. I haven't heard the second album yet, so I can't do a definative favourites-listing yet, but you picked the wheat from the chaff from what I've heard.

X-KID is one of my favourite GD songs of all time, but I also like STAY THE NIGHT, DRAMA QUEEN, BRUTAL LOVE, 99 REVOLUTIONS, OH LOVE, and THE FORGOTTEN.

But doesn't DIRTY ROTTEN BASTARDS sounds like a bad remake of THE JESUS OF SUBURBIA?

Whatever, I'll be back to you when I've heard the full story...
