The new Green Day - the first of a bunch of threatened albums to be released in the next few months is "Uno" and it's on Reprise. Love Green Day? You still will after this one. Some critics think they're just going through the motions - even it they were (and I don't think they are) even baseline Green Day is still better than most other bands. Billy Joe Armstrong and the boys clearly know how to crank out the three minute pop punk, hook filled rocker, dropping the f-bomb like the 8th Air Force on a busy evening over the Third Reich so long ago. More Green Day? "Dos" is coming out in early November and "Tres" in January maybe.
