    What this amounts to is a sharp and often exhilarating change of gear from the Green Day of the past eight years. [22 Sep 2012, p.50]

    They deliver it like late-breaking news, with mid-Sixties-guitar clamor, '77 velocity and no breathing room.

    After all these years they can still write a catchy tune.

    ¡Uno! is Green Day's least ambitious record in years and a return to what they do best: short, sharp, scatterbrain pop-punk.
  5. There are some parts you'll have to suffer through, but there are at least a handful of tracks that we can save and enjoy into the future.
  6. Uno! starts promisingly, but it's soon obvious that the Clash of "Tommy Gun" is still their template.
  7. 20
    Some of the dullest music released all year.

    I'm a long-term Green day fan and I think it's great.
    Not their best but sure a great way to enter the new decade - by returning to their power-pop roots (and of course being good at it).
    Lyrics are not as good as they were on their previous releases but the album is just fun, catchy and as Mick Jones once said: "Stripped to the bone". No ****
    And yeah...Sputnik Music seriously sucks.

Not their best obviously but it's definitely a new take on their music. The concept of a trilogy is such a unique idea, especially with the music industry where it is these days. Expand

    After American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown another great album by Green Day, although it's not on the same level. There are no bad songsAfter American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown another great album by Green Day, although it's not on the same level. There are no bad songs in it, and some of them are very good (Let Yourself Go, Stay The Night). I think it's one of their best. Let's see the next two. Expand

    One of Green Day's greatest efforts, "¡Uno!" brings back its pop/punk brilliance with well-crafted rock songs. There are no fillers hereOne of Green Day's greatest efforts, "¡Uno!" brings back its pop/punk brilliance with well-crafted rock songs. There are no fillers here (unlike the other albums of this trilogy). "Sweet 16" is THE highlight. "Stay the Night" and "Let Yourself Go" are other highlights here, as they are pure rock 'n' roll. "Kill the DJ", a bit different track from other Green Day tracks, find its way and does not disappoint at all, together with "Carpe Diem" and "Troublemaker". "Nuclear Family" and Rusty James" are also very welcome. "Oh Love", the lead single, closes the album with a sense of "work well done". "Fell for You" is a little sweeter than most of their other tracks, but it's good, though it might not please some fans. "Angel Blue" and "Loss of Control" are the weakest tracks here, but yet they are good.

    "¡Uno!' is the best album on the trilogy and I recommend it.
