A slightly mixed review here:

However, they have erred in going for an album trilogy, a format that really only works for bands with expansive soundscapes and multiple avatars. The Smashing Pumpkins, Collective Soul, The Beatles, Nine Inch Nails, U2… these are some of the outfits that can pull off a project like this. With Green Day, you get occasionally unedited (read: bad) songwriting with unavoidable repetition and redundancy. For instance, 99 Revolutions deals with the Occupy Wall Street movement “ a theme we already touched on ¡Uno! “ except that this time Billie identifies with the proverbial 99 percent instead of musing as an outsider.
