Aural Pleasure Review

Green Day: '¡Dos!'

Photo: , License: N/A


There’s definitely some old school sound going on in ¡Dos!, the second of Green Day’s 2012 trilogy, but not the kind expected. Billie Joe Armstrong actively wanted garage rock rather than punk rock to define the album, and it works most fluidly on “Lazy Bones” and “Wild One” where, if not for Armstrong’s distinctive whine, could be mistaken for a Superdrag single. A few missteps keep the album from achieving true greatness, but closer “Amy” (written about the late Amy Winehouse) harkens back to ’60s folk rock and may eventually prove to be the most endearing track of the trilogy.

★★★ (out of 5 stars)
