  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.
  5. 60
    Green Day remain the ultimate big-shorts party band. [Nov. 2000, p.116]
  6. You're going to have to dig through a barrage of radio-ready songs to find the excitement of previous albums.
  7. 20
    Warning is the sound of three men growing old far too gracefully.

    Green day has always given albums where every song is good, and this is no different. Great lyrics, and catchy beats. Every song will be etched into your memory. Expand

    I really love this album! Even though its not Green Day's best to date, I enjoy it for being different and fresh. When everyone wanted them to just make another Dookie album and return to their roots they put out a very smart and mature record that captured what was going on with them at the time in their lives. Warning starts off with acoustic guitars and ends with a beautiful ballad. All the way this album is solid and Billie wrote some amazing lyrics for this record! Its very different from their previews albums but a great experimental album for the time! Expand

    Really an underrated album. A departure in a sound they've been so comfortable with. It's my second favorite album from them. Up to this point they had been rehashing ideas from Dookie. This, poor critically received record, was their much needed creative breakthrough. Expand

    Excellent work by Green Day. I think it's better than Nimrod, although there isn't a real masterpiece (like Good Riddance). However Minority, Waiting and Macy's Day Parade are nice. I also like Warning and Castaway. Expand

    Green 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
