Feb 13, 2020Father of All Motherfuckers is a danceable, feel-good pop album with some really stellar songwriting and, after the impotent Revolution Radio and the ludicrous ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! trilogy, seeing Green Day branch out a bit and succeed at something different is refreshing. It’s a sign of artists with a great deal of range and imagination who are far from done surprising us.
Q MagazineFeb 4, 2020By its very nature, Father Of All... is slight compared to a sprawling magnum opus such as 2009's 21st Century Breakdown, but it's close to impossible to emerge from its rapid-fire near-half-hour without a smile on your face. [Mar 2020, p.112]
UncutFeb 4, 2020Fuses the hormonal aggression that put Green Day on the map with punched-up modern-day production courtesy of Butch Walker and a razor-sharp mix by Tchad Blake. [Mar 2020, p.29]

The production andLook, this is the best album this band released since 21CB. It’s short, but is a short, sweet, neat, adrenaline shot. The production and mixing is on top of everything, the songs are bangers, and they are so diverse. Great work from a band that has been around for over 30 years. Not something it could have been easy to expect from Green Day in 2020, in a really positive way.… Expand

They meant a lot to me during my formative years of music and adolescence, even if their music has lost that urgency and adrenaline. Father of All... is a mixed bag for me. Better than the Trilogy, not as good as Revolution Radio, which hasn't aged all too well after it's initial release. I do appreciate the lean meat-and-potatoes approach of the album and making a pure rock-n-roll, or what constitutes as rock-n-roll these days with a mainstream mainstay like Green Day, but with the short run-time and the polish sheen sounding more like it wants to be played for car commercials or iPhone commercials, it feels more like a compromise for the major labels. Some of the energetic songs are good like the title cut, Sugar Youth, and Oh Yeah!, and the throwback to garage rock felt more energetic compared to Dos, and without a cringe worthy rap rock song, however so much of the clapping and very clear dad rock blueprints, it's more of an album with singles rather than anything truly cohesive. This will probably do well with licensing than upon repeated re-listening. As for me, I still have Dookie and American Idiot to come back to. Maybe every so often I will for this album.… Expand

The songs lack imagination and direction.
If you tell me that these 26 minutes of music is the best that Green Day can offer after almost 4 years, then maybe they should start reconsidering their future as a band.
Billie Joe Armstrong is two years away of turning 50, you have to know when you should stop writing songs like if you were a teenager.… Expand
Feb 17, 2020this album sounds like a lot of different bands, but not one of them being green day. at least not anywhere close to quality green day. it’sthis album sounds like a lot of different bands, but not one of them being green day. at least not anywhere close to quality green day. it’s certainly not their best, but its also not the worst. I think its just slightly better than the trilogy. I am honestly confused that so many people enjoyed it, but who am I to tell you what to like. objectively though, this is one of green day’s most weakest and mixed albums. the lack of songwriting, unoriginality, and overproduction makes this short album feel like hours, in a bad way.… Expand
