  1. 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.

    Warning may not only be the most beautiful Green Day LP but also the bravest. [#48, p.93]
  3. The band's musical range has also broadened a bit.
  4. Green Day has never made a record so slick and musically mature.

    By design, the band doesn't rock as hard as it used to. Doesn't punk as hard as it used to, either. [12/2000, p.215]
  6. The once-giddy melodies now settle for midtempo jangle or novelty...
  7. 20
    Warning is the sound of three men growing old far too gracefully.

    Critics are dumb. To whoever gave it a two; I'd like to see them get the balls to try something this unique and wonderful. Kick-ass album.

    Green Day ventures out of of the punk arena into folk rock and pop rock. The album is enjoyable and well-written. Thematically, their musicGreen Day ventures out of of the punk arena into folk rock and pop rock. The album is enjoyable and well-written. Thematically, their music remains the same but musically different. They show newfound maturity and development in their new style. "Minority" is full of 1-liners and catchy lyrics without going too pop. Expand

    For me, clearly worst album from Green Day since they become popular, Little disappointing, especially after great "street" pop-punk albumFor me, clearly worst album from Green Day since they become popular, Little disappointing, especially after great "street" pop-punk album Insomniac, when they`re elevating their self-loathing and by american symbols-powered sense of loyalty to place, where they`re grown. But still not bad, even, very good. The sound and pace of songs are too much not-punk, but, well, it was an album of ex-rockers, in time, when their glory looks gone forever. Expand

    Green Day's "Dookie" was the perfect punk album, brash and completely original. Since then, they have slipped into the more comfortable 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. Don't waste your money. Expand
