I absolutely love this album, and have listened to it more in 2 weeks than any album this year, including NLOTH.

Favourites so far are Peacemaker and Viva la Gloria? (Little Girl)

This album is not punk, by any definition. Classic rock played a few BPM faster.

I'm not one to say what music someone would like, as everyone has different musical tastes (as we all know).

That being said, I never really cared for Green Day before American Idiot, and I absolutely adored that album. When listening to 21st Century Breakdown, it's important - at least for me - to judge it on its own merits, and not based on American Idiot.

I think this album has great songs, fantastic melodies, and catchy hooks. The story is secondary for me right now.

So listen to it, try to absorb it, and then you can be the judge. You'll never really know if you'll like it until you give it a chance.

If you liked American Idiot, you'll probably enjoy at least some of this one. It's not on the same level as its predecessor, but it's enjoyable enough, especially Acts 2 and 3. Just get through Act 1, which is the weakest part.

^ And even Act 1 isn't so bad. My favorites atm are Peacemaker, I am loving that song! It was the first one to grab my attention and still my favorite. Also in no particular order ¿Viva La Gloria? (Little Girl), The Static Age, ¡Viva La Gloria!, Last Of The American Girls, and Restless Heart Syndrome. Oh and Before The Lobotomy and 21 Guns. Ok I like alot of them!

seriously, it wouldnt have mattered how amaizing either NLOTH or 21stCB were. They are bth bands that once had a cult following and are now huge. That = selling out to pitchfork, and they are totally unab;e to write a objective review on any band that fits that mold. Generally if they give an album unde 4.9 (dig out you soul got 4.9 and its tripe) I will like it. They are sad disaffected, washed up little private school wankers who would never make anything of themselves, so they trash oher peoples art.. Noble

I will be safe in the knowledge that they probably cry themselves to sleep every night.

Not sure if this says more about Pitchfork's taste in music or yours.

I'm still amazed this is the same band that made Dookie. Their music has really evolved since then. I love the new album, maybe not as much as American Idiot but I've only listened to it a couple of times so far so it might gain some ground on further listening.

Currently, it's my second fave album of the year after NLOTH (duh).
