    An OK album, the old school style but not as well as expected, Warning needs more energy to be a masterpiece, but after all is good, the best tracks of the album are Waiting and Minority that are a big blast of full-energy songs

    Green Day's "Dookie" was the perfect punk album, brash and completely original. Since then, they have slipped into the more comfortable pop genre and decided that it's ok for all their songs to sound exactly alike. Standouts on this disk - "Minority" and the darkly intriguing "Misery" - are overshadowed by the twenty-odd minutes of crap that string them together.

    Old fans who would have enjoyed such messages in the past might not like them packaged with such clean music, but they'd be missing the point. Real old school punks know that punk is about following your own path, and that's just what Green Day are doing.
  2. Crucially, his knack for simple punk tunes remains unchanged; also crucially, these do fine at moderate tempos, and one even gives off a whiff of Brecht-Weill. There are worse ways to come down off a multiplatinum high-lots of them.
  3. Green Day's melodies are as delicious as ever, and the band continues to integrate acoustic guitar into its sound without getting all granola on us. But as a songwriter, Armstrong's neither here nor there, unable to fully abandon his goofball roots but not stretching far enough to score the breakaway great album he's always seemed capable of writing.
