℗ 2020 Reprise Records.
Father of All... Tracklist:
I hate to break it to ya. But Rock bands are not like fine wine. They DON'T get better with age. Think of every rock band you love and try to think of one where their new material is as good as their earlier stuff? Good luck! Green Day hasnt been punk for YEARS!! They are too commercial. Just look at their picture up above. They look like Vegas lounge singers for pete sake!
This is pure garbage. I really want to believe that this is Green Day’s way of getting off their record label. This isn’t the Green Day I fell in love with in the 90s...their new albums were ok but nothing will beat smoothed out slappy hours or dookie or nimrod... let’s hope that they will drop magnus opus soon after this crap has been released. It’s supposed to be their actual real record.
This is a great album! Who cares if it doesn’t “sound like Green Day” these are 10 fun, rock songs that are a blast to listen to. They really did a good job experimenting on this one! At least they are actually trying something new unlike most bands their age.
This is by far Green Day’s best work. They have truly grown up and left theirs idiotic punk fans behind. They’re still eating dog food while Green Day are going stronger than ever! The Kinks, John Jett, Lennon, Eagles, The Clash just to name a few of the CLEAR influences on this record. This has the hooks for Warning, the Social Substance of American Idiot, the Lyrics of 21st century Breakdown, the guitar work oh the trilogy and the dark tones of Rev Rad! It’s all of their best work wrapped in a gut busting 26 min ride of old, new and wild!!! Must listen! 5 stars!!!
Haven’t been a big fan of Green Day since probably 21st century even doe I bought the deluxe trilogy (big mistake) but I mean this one isn’t even that bad it’s been on repeat for a good week or so 👌🏼 could be a little better but good enough
I’m a fan of Green Day and own all their albums except this one but this Album is a letdown and by far the worst album by them. You have Sum 41 who makes a new album and keeps the same style while Green Day on the other hand goes to complete trash and changes styles completely
I was expecting a pretty good modern alternative rock album with a little bit of a classic green day flare and I got a pop album about meeting billy on the roof, being a teenage teenager, and sugar youth (whatever that means). Oh Yeah! That’s just what I needed!
Seriously, this album is like a bad parody of the Black Keys or Cage The Elephant. It sounds like a generic band on any alternative station. This album is dreadful. I gave the whole album a couple of listens this past week on Apple Music, hoping it would grow on me, but I can't stand it. I actually deleted it from my music library, because I don't ever want to hear it again. This isn't experimentation, reinvention, or pushing boundaries, it's pop culture sameness for the sake of youthful relevance. It's like being the old dudes at the club. All they actually had to do to be relevant was SOUND LIKE GREEN DAY.
This album is not Green Day going back to their roots. This is them meshing pop punk with Rockabilly. And it works for me. I can see why purist will be turned off by this, but I think it’s a nice, fun punkabilly album.
It's a sad state of affairs when fans turn on the bands they love so much. Employing a schoolyard bully paradigm to make yourself feel better because you're nowhere near as successful as Billy Joe, Tre and Mike speaks more about you than the three of them. Show me your over 200 award nominations and over 90 wins including four Grammy's as well as your spot in the Rock 'n Roll HOF and I'll accept your bashing Green Day for more than the compensating of your own failures that it is. This album is awesome!
Seriously, someone needs to forcibly separate Green Day from Pete Wentz and his dork squad. The samples, the dance beats, I expected the Munster’s theme to kick in on half these songs. If you ever wondered what fall out boy would sound like with Billy Joe on vocals here ya go. I’m all for artists pushing their ranges but imitating a band that is, essentially imitating you? Come on, guys. Even you know this is your worst record.
I legitimately enjoyed this album. This album doesn’t ask for much of your time, and doesn’t waste it either. While it doesn’t sound like their old sound, I think it’s better than producing a clone of revolution radio. Kudos to them for doing something different
Everyone just wants a carbon copy of American Idiot, 21st Century Breakdown or Dookie. This is not that. And that is a great thing. This is Green Day doing what they do best .. making great music. Short, sweet and to the point.
Go listen to Fire by Jimi Hendrix and try to convince me they didn’t steal that songs riff/drums for Father of All... You could have at least picked an artist a little less famous than Jimi to riff off of. I mean c’mon guys. For real?
They had to go a different direction because they’ve been around for many years now so just because something sounds different doesn’t mean people should just write them off by giving the album one star. Have an open mind people,and trust Green Day. They’re not stupid nor burnt out. They’re gonna make something to satisfy their fans. It’s not about the money anymore. They have enough money to retire if they wanted to. This album is sick! Starting with the 1st song to the last. Just trust,trust and trust !!!
Ngl this album isn’t the greatest. It’s just not Green Day, and you can’t even hear the words in the songs. I will admit that Oh Yeah, Sugar Youth, and Graffitia are okay, but the rest of the album is just crappy.
