Apparently, there are many, many Brits that don't agree with you.



Bullet in a Bible - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Quote:
Bullet in a Bible is a live CD, DVD, Blu-Ray and UMD release by Green Day, which was issued on November 15, 2005. Directed by Samuel Bayer, director of all the videos of American Idiot, Bullet in a Bible documents the two biggest shows that Green Day headlined in their career, playing to over 130,000 people at the Milton Keynes National Bowl in the UK on 18 and 19 of June, 2005. Fourteen of the twenty songs performed at these shows are included on the disc. Bullet in a Bible reached #6 in the UK and debuted at #8 in the US.
According to Rolling Stone, Bullet in a Bible was the seventh largest one-band concert in history.

And this is coming from someone who, after Dookie, totally lost interest in them until American Idiot came around.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. I haven't listened yet but I also thought they will have a tough time topping a masterpiece like AI. I hoped they could at least come somewhere close to it (at least a solid album like you said). Glad to hear you're enjoying it so far.

You're so innovative...




They chose some interesting tour spots, to come and play TX and skip Dallas and Austin for San Antonio is one of the oddest thing I've ever seen a band do...

Listening now. Agree that it will be hard to top American Idiot (my favourite album of 2004), but this is still a very good album so far.

Didn't like it. Most of the songs slipped past me, and the lyrics weren't reeling me in either. It's the strangest thing, but the songs simply aren't very catchy, and that's unforgivable in this genre. The chorus of East Jesus Nowhere was pretty great, and Know Your Enemy is hummable, if disposable, but I can barely remember anything else. It's American Idiot with a longer running time, less variety, and fewer hooks.

I like their music but see them once and go away. Every show is the same. I saw them at least 6 times at festivals and everytime they play it's the exact same act!!!

Green Day are a sort of band that I -almost- like enough to buy their records, but not quite.

I've heard the two new songs from their latest and they're unlikely to change that. Know Your Enemy is kinda catchy but not anywhere as good as their singles from American Idiot.

21 guns sounds like it stole the chorus of Telephone Line by ELO

interesting, I got 3 tix to the DC show. All tickets were the same price: $49.50 and they had the closer sections on both sides by the stage as will call only as well as the floor that was GA. My SIL and BIL are taking my son to see them on 7/29. We will be in Dublin still so can't go but my son is so excited!

We ended up with Sect. 109 (main concourse/lowest level off the floor), Row T. Couldn't do Will call cuz I wouldn't be there to show ID for the tix.

Have to say overall I'm not really enjoying the album that much save for several songs it's just average pop-punk and/or American Idiot 2. It's just too long and too much of the same

It didn't leak, Green Day made it available to their fan club a week early. THAT alone was worth the $20. Anyway, I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. I can't imagine not liking it, though.
