    The best of the trilogy by far. The songs flow together beautifully. Again the lyrics are built around the music and not the other way around. The music is more fun then Uno though. Does have some filler songs just like last time. Notable songs: F*** Time, Stop When The Red Lights Flash, Stray Heart, Lady Cobra and Nightlife

    Dos is the ultimate Green Day album. But at the same time, it's unlike anything like Green Day have ever done. This album features everything from fast-paced Punk Rock from the days of Dookie to Garage Rock and even a rap song. Yes, a RAP song. That song is called Nightlife, and it features some sexy guest vocals from Lady Cobra, and an IMMENSE bassline by Mike Dirnt. And I mean IMMENSE. One of the catchiest ones ever. The bass work throughout the album is amazing, with a very prominent bassline in Stray Heart and a face melting bass solo near the bridge of Makeout Party. There's not much to the lyrics, but I guess there wasn't supposed to be in the first place. Dos is a true party album, with crazy guitar solos and songs about sex. With the exception of Amy, which is a beautiful ballad. This could turn out to be my favourite Green Day album of all time. It's worth a listen!
    Also, check out the crazy The Who-ish kinda breakdown in Wow! That's Loud. And the amazing 50s solo by Armstrong in **** Time. Minds will be blown.

    What was announced as a party album turned out to be more. Although, I would dare to say that guys from GD haven't shot from all cannons while making this album, I have to say that it's great. Lyrics are a bit of a weak side, but it's just a good, fun, catchy album...let the guys do what they want and enjoy themselves...they deserved it.

    If you thought Uno was good lyrically, you may be disappointed with Dos, as the theme remains the same throughout. If you thought (musically) Uno was boring, Dos is here, and it will blow everything Uno did musically out of the water. If you are familiar with Green Day's side project "The Foxboro Hottubs" you know what to expect. Lots of dirty, grindy effects in the music. But it still maintains a great Green Day feel. Songs like Lady Cobra, Stop When The Red Lights Flash, and Makeout Party, are all great upbeat songs, the album also contains some slower songs, such as Wild One and the immensely beautiful Amy. Despite that the album is shorter than I thought it was going to be, this album is fantastic from start to finish. Expand

    Great follow-up to the first album and really sets groundwork for the third and final album to finale itself. The upbeat tones and relatable themes make it a wonderful continuation as the second part in this masterpiece.

    Green Day are a band who tend to mix things up, and if you enjoy Green Day's attempts to mix things up, you will love Dos! While Uno was a power pop album with one typical sound spanning it's entirety, there are multiple different sounds here ranging from raunchy garage rock, to bluesy 50's rock and even going into areas unheard of for Green Day such as rap, with guest verses from Lady Cobra. This album is full of memorable songs, with some very memorable riffs and lyrics, although some may feel very familiar to your (Lazy Bones has the same chords as Give Me Novacaine for example) which is the key area in which Uno was lacking. Songs such as F**k Time (yeah that exists), Lazy Bones, Makeout Party, Stray Heart and Wild One are two songs that stand out and really give the album a sense of emotion and a personality, as well as being some of Green Day's absolute finest, with absolutely commendable bass work (seriously, this is one of Mike's best). The band also delves into the rap genre and pulls it off rather well with the track 'Nightlife' which is a dark and dirty track with a great bassline.

    This is a great album and is really worth a listen, if Uno wasn't a particular favorite of your's, check out Dos, it's a great album and really gets you ready for Tre!

    It's great to hear them back on home turf, stripped of their last two records' strained conceptualism, instead just spitting out random, bratty nuggets about uncomplicated things like feeling horny and outrageous women. [Jan 2013, p.94]

    They're much more at ease losing themselves in power-pop harmonies on Lazy Bones and embracing '60s garage on Stop When The Red Lights Flash. [Jan 2013, p.108]

    Musical joie de vivre courses through Dos!, along with enough variety to ensure this is more than just, um, Uno! Part 2. [10 Nov 2012, p.52]
