    By definition, it's a water treader and there's nothing surprising. [May 2011, p.124]

    This is an album that works best when at its most obscure. [19 Mar 2011, p.50

    Green Day puts on a big, arena-sized rock show that's part visual spectacle, part sing-along revival concert, with Billie Joe as the preacher and ringleader. It's a wonderful experience in person, but it understandably loses something in the translation to CD and DVD.

    The combination of songs, sound, and performance make this another near-perfect album from the trio. Those who have fallen under their charmingly sweet spell can only hope it doesn't take another six years for the next one.

    Awesome as F---, a live album, doubles as both a high-octane greatest-hits collection and a not-always-flattering portrait of the band's evolution from bratty Northern California punks to stadium-rock juggernaut.

    This collection does little to enhance their hard-won reputation as one of modern rock's most compelling live draws. [May 2011, p.105]

It has a great set list made up of some of Green Day's newer songs & some of the greatest older Green Day songs. If you're gonna buy this anywhere, make sure it includes the bonus tracks because hearing "Christie Road" once again & with a little kick of newer Green Day styling was simply amazing. Full Review »
