UNO . . . DOS . . . TRÉ!
Even the most hardcore of Green Day fans have to admit that listening to ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! in a single sitting doesn't sound terribly appealing. That said, merging them into a single release does drive home just how bottomless the band's well of hooks really is. Sure, their overarching theme -- pre-party, party, post-party -- certainly is high-concept like that of American Idiot. Yet all three titles contain a wealth of great tunes rooted in the Green Day's classic punk/power-pop aesthetic. Don't be surprised if this music winds up aging better than much of the band's "mature" material.
