GREEN DAY / ¡Uno! [2012]

Pop punkers Green Day return to scaled down sugar-sweet rock, in the first of a trilogy of albums, 2012's ¡Uno!
It's nice to hear them ditch the political agenda, with no intentions other than to entertain with radio-safe pop songs and la-dee-da lyrics. Although it sounds more like a polished version of their b-sides collection Shenanigans  than anything else. I'm not saying it's all bad, it just doesn't grab you right away and leaves you wondering if they'd be best off releasing one lengthy album and kick-ass with an army of decent b-sides to dump on us for the next few years.

3 you're kinda old to be singing about Sweet 16's out of 5
