I was a big Green day fan when they first started getting widespread play, then I sort of lost track of them, wasn't particularly into but didn't dislike their music. Then American Idiot came out! Blew my mind. Just an incredible album! I don't know if I've ever listened to any album straight through so many times in my life. Not one track on it I didn't love. I got to see them in concert in May, and they rocked hard; these guys are at the top of their game right now

(And I'm only a teenager on the inside... outside I'm pushing 30 y/o)

I think it's a quality record. Nice to see them make a respectable effort. At least they've grown out of fecal album titles and songs about having a wank.

That being said, I do think it's not the "amazing accomplishment" for music that some are making it out to be. It's okay, and that's as far as it goes. Nothing innovative, really. Nothing jaw-dropping. Just catchy hooks and distorted guitars, something way too many bands are making a living on. Green Day just does it slightly better than the rest of the heap.
