A Pleasant Surprise

After only one spin, I'm pretty impressed by the new Green Day album, American Idiot. I think dropping that punk facade opens up the the group to a better presentation. Without the cliched sneer, the group can just play their straight-ahead powerpop, which is more convincing and affecting.

The new disc might even convince me to give the long-forgotten Dookie a spin.

I was surprised at how good it is. I thought WARNING blew, and wasn't expecting much from this one, but the boys done good.

Would it be wrong of me to say I told you so?

Yeah, Ian, your review was one of the influences that led to me checking it out. Only I didn't remember it was you, assuming it was one of Anthony's defenses of pop!
