    Being a fan of Green Day for a long time, I was exhilarated when I learned they would be coming out with, not one, but three new albums. Tre! was instantly the one I was most excited for due to the descriptions Billie Joe gave. After hearing Uno! and Dos! my expectations were very high for Tre! and it did not disappoint. While I thought the first two albums were good, this one provides me with extensive replay value with every song. Tre! opens with the grandiose "Brutal Love," a sprawling ballad complete with piano and horn contributions, a la King for a Day. The albums does not turn back from there. There are no genre-bending experiments on Tre!, just tributes to many decades of music, as well as past Green Day efforts. "Drama Queen" delves into 50's do-wop and throwback for fans of Warning in "Sex, Drugs, and Violence," for example. While, yes, I agree that it is not Green Day's top material, Tre! salvages an otherwise slightly above average trilogy and, hell, still beats out most music today, warranting a 9/10. **** Kesha's album is rated higher than Tre! right now and anyone that knows real music will know that Tre! is still prime entertainment, even if it's not Green Day's greatest effort. That being said, it deserves to be mentioned as one of their better albums, in my humble opinion. Their ability to channel different eras of rock and still be able to make it their own is uncanny. Must listens: Brutal Love, X-Kid, Dirty Rotten Bastards Expand

    It's better then Dos!, Some song like Dirty Rotten Bastards, X-Kid and 99 Revolutions keep the original Green Day style, but other songs it's so disappointing....The trilogy it's not what I expected....Now we just wait for the next proposal of this band in the future, and check this like a lesson to learn

    By far the best album off the trilogy. It even beats out 21st Century Breakdown. All the songs connect instantly, and there's no filler ANYWHERE on the album. There are some mad fills by Tre Cool, crazy bass solos by Dirnt (Cue the spectacular 7 minute long 'Dirty Rotten Bastards'), and some pretty badass guitar work from both Billie Joe and Jason White. Also, Armstrong's vocals never fail to impress. Even Mike Dirnt's! Yup, he has a 10 second lead vocal stint on 'Sex, Drugs and Violence.' This album is a complete package, with a political song that recalls their '04 and '05 albums, and the mellower opening and closing tracks of the album, both of which are driven by piano and violins. Best album I've heard in a long time.
    Tracks to listen to: Dirty Rotten Bastards; X-Kid; Sex, Drugs and Violence; Little Boy Named Train; Brutal Love.

    Following the nice Uno! and the fantastic Dos! is no easy feat for any album, and it's a task that not many albums would be up to, but in this case, Dos! is trumped in style by the third album in Green Day's trilogy - Tre! Tre! is considered the after party in the series and follows a calmer, more reflective mood, reminiscent of Warning and parts of American Idiot. The album contains some of the best tracks in the trilogy, including Brutal Love, X-Kid, Dirty Rotten Bastards, 99 Revolutions and The Forgotten, all of which become infectiously addictive. Don't believe what the critics say, this is Green Day's best album since American Idiot and is up there with the best of Green Day's work, an easy 10/10 and a perfect way to round off a wonderful trilogy of albums.

    Watch out for: Brutal Love, X-Kid, Dirty Rotten Bastards, 99 Revolutions, The Forgotten

    By far the best album of the trilogy. It's filled with memorable songs that will only add to Green Day's legendary catalogue. Every song is different but there is a seamless flow to the album that was lacking in the other two. Standout tracks include 'Brutal Love', a country-influenced love ballad that slowly builds to an epic climax, 'X-Kid', with outstanding vocals, and 'Dirty Rotten Bastards', a 7-minute epic in the veins of Jesus of Suburbia and Homecoming. All in all, a bit disappointed with the trilogy but this album redeems it as much as possible. Expand

    One of Green day's greatest albums,all "Killer" and no "Filler its a must have by far the best of the trilogy.
    Green day have produced some of their finest songs ever with songs like "Brutal love" ,"X-Kid","Dirty rotten Bastards" and "99 revolutions"
    But saying that not one song stood out as a bad song all were great,overall its a far better album than "UNO" and "DOS" which were both
    solid albums.
    The best way to describe "TRE" is that it has songs which remind me of Dookie but it has the stadium rock feel at times of "American idiot" and "21st Century Breakdown" with the experimental side of "Nimrod" and "Warning"

    Green Day are back with their third part of the Trilogy.The third and final album is the best of the whole Trilogy.It has beautiful slow ballads like "The Forgotten" and "Drama Queen",epic multi-part song like "Dirty Rotten Bastards",catchy pop-punk tunes like "X-Kid" and "Missing You",political song like "99 Revolutions" , even a soul song like "Brutal Love" which is a tribute to Sam Cooke.It's their best album since American Idiot and the best way to close the Trilogy.

    A slightly underrated but unbelievably low popular album. It shows how Green Day music is highly underrated. Especially when you take their production from song to song. 85 percent of their songs have possibility to be a great hit, and if any of english pop rock artist have song like Wild One, then it`ll be like biggest hit of decade. Very poor management and couple of laziness by Californians made this a very low successful but very cool return to their roots. Btw. the meaning of songs X-Kid and 99 Revolution clearly overcome the strongness of social criticism/"age-documentation" kind of songs from American Idiot and 21st cb albums. Expand

    ¡Tré! is the final chapter of Green Day's beautiful trilogy. It's better than ¡Dos!, and come closer to ¡Uno!. The songs are generally sadder than the other two albums (The Forgotten), but they're all very good, especially X-Kid, 99 Revolution and Brutal Love. I think ¡Tré! is on the same level of ¡Uno! and Warning, all in the list of Green Day's great albums.

    green day is perhaps the only one punk band alive, still continuing the good works of sex pistols and! and dos! are perfect examples of punk albums while this album Tre! brought in some variations of pop with songs like BRUTAL LOVE, X-KID.... pop- punk is the overall genre of this album and those who are expecting something like TIME OF YOUR LIFE would definitely love this album...

    In the end, iTRÉ! is unexpectedly the strongest record overall of the three. Although it has its own issues, these don't drag that much the whole affair down and there aren't any horrible missteps such as "Nightlife".

    Tre! is more whimper than bang.

    The final album in the set is the best of the bunch, [8 Dec 2012, p.50]
