21st Century Breakdown

Cheechoo has returned to the blog world with a review of Green Day's new album, 21st Century Breakdown. Before I tell you what I think here's the track listing:

1. Song of the Century
Act I : Heroes and Cons
2. 21st Century Breakdown
3. Know Your Enemy
4. ¡Viva la Gloria!
5. Before the Lobotomy
6. Christian's Inferno
7. Last Night on Earth
Act II : Charlatans and Saints
8. East Jesus Nowhere
9. Peacemaker
10. Last of the American Girls
11. Murder City
12. ¿Viva la Gloria? (Little Girl)
13. Restless Heart Syndrome
Act III : Horseshoes and Handgrenades
14. Horseshoes and Handgrenades
15. The Static Age
16. 21 Guns
17. American Eulogy
A: Mass Hysteria
B: Modern World
18. See the Light

The new album is very good. I really like it alot. It sounds like a mix of Nimrod, Warning, and American Idiot put together. Alot of the songs sound like they could have been on one of those 3 albums. For example, ¿Viva la Gloria? (Little Girl) sounds like it could have been on Warning, Horseshoes and Handgrenades sounds like it could have been on Nimrod, and Murder City sounds like it could have been on American Idiot. There are others but I'm not going to name them all.

This album in my opinion is better than American Idiot. I haven't decided whether or not I think it's better than Warning but it's close. I think they should keep going until they make a really shitty album and at the pace they're going that won't be for a while.

East Jesus Nowhere, Restless Heart Syndrome, ¿Viva la Gloria? (Little Girl), and 21st Century Breakdown are my favorite songs from it. I would say that East Jesus Nowhere and Restless Heart Syndrome could make the list of the all time best Green Day songs.

I don't think 2009 will see a better album than 21st Century Breakdown. Go buy it today!

Master Cheechoo gives 21st Century Breakdown 5 stars.
