this is a classic green day album liked by many hated by many i'm on the side of people who like this album because obviously they have taste and this is a taste of why green day are so good and so popular and this is their most successful album i can tell why the general best songs are: american idiot, boulevard of broken dreams, holiday, wake me up when september ends, jesus of suburbia & st. jimmy but they are all good in common sense and i know lots of people who love green day and this… Read Full Review

Great album - I love how the lyrics are so political and the tunes are sooo amazing! Jesus of suburbia is a perfect mix of all different levels of punk/rock! Green Day really opened my eyes, before this album I only listened to R'n'B and pop but now I would never go back to Girls Aloud. They've taught me about decent music!… Read Full Review

Before I listened to Green Day, the only rock I liked was Linkin Park. Other than that I was strictly rap/underground hip hop.
All I can say is that the American idiot album is ground breaking stuff and they are one of the best, if not, the best band in the world today, period.
Right, that's enough boasting about Green Day on to the album.
American Idiot is one of the best albums I have listened to for a very long time. The music is second to none and at the same time there lyrics make you… Read Full Review

Whatever Greenday are, they're certainly not punk. What they are is completely mediocre. What with their horrible boring political commentation (rednecks are conservatives? never heard that before). I suppose the American Idiot album doesn't make your eyes bleed, but the boredom of listening to this piece could possibly bring you to take a hammer to your skull. Please don't buy this. If you're looking for real punk check out The Vandals, Dropkick Murphys, or Dead Kennedys… Read Full Review

American Idiot was the first album I bought by Green Day, and it changed my life. It made me think that life is not all about R'n'B or Hip Hop, but Rock and Punk. Vast bands have yet to be discovered, and this band was just the first of many great bands… Read Full Review

Green Day sucks. The song american idiot is a song to get people to hate Bush. The song itself is not very good either its sounds very fake and it does not have instumental solos. If you want to listen to real music listen to Blink 182… Read Full Review

We all know Green Day, most of us have us have grown up listening to them. But I don't think any of us knew Green Day like this. American Idiot (Reprise Records) is a rock opera that goes far beyond the many other albums from Green Day. Not only does it sound great it has a plot and storyline! Through out the 13 tracks we follow "Jesus of Suburbia" as he makes his way through life meeting 2 other characters, "St. Jimmy" and "Whatsername".
The story/album takes off with 'American Idiot'… Read Full Review

This album is sooo good for any other band but for Green Day it's not their best. They're my fave band eva and they're gettin' old so their new stuff isn't as good and it annoys me that all the little wannabe's all think they like Green Day cuz of their new album I have all of their album and this one is no way near as good as Waiting or Dookie but hey… Read Full Review

Green Day, American Idiot - Its a fantastic effort by Green Day, they've created a superb album here. When you look at the CD you see 13 tracks. What you don't see is that 2 of them are 9 minutes, so you're getting great value for money. Very political, but also very entertaining. A must have for anyone who likes rock, punk, or any good music… Read Full Review

Green Day are back and better than ever with American Idiot. When I first bought the CD I wasn't sure what to expect. Now it's pretty much living in my CD player at the moment.
The title track features Green Day's vintage punk sound and it will definitly please the fans of their earlier albums, in particular 'Dookie'. The following track is probally the highlight of this great album has to be 'Jesus of Suburbia'. Despite the fact it is five songs and lasts for over nine minutes, it dosen't… Read Full Review

Green Day, American Idiot - I've only just started listening to Green Day a few months ago, but they're really good. This album's great, every song on it is catchy. Really, you get more songs than what you pay for because Jesus of Surburbia and Homecoming are both 5 shorter songs put together. Overall, very good… Read Full Review

Green Day, American Idiot - I've only just started listening to this type of music and I love it, this song rocks! I have the live version which is slightly worse than the ordinary version as the vocalist spends most of his time showing off to the crowd rather than singing!
Overall a great song, louder and quicker than Boulevard of Broken Dreams… Read Full Review

Green Day, American Idiot - I've only just got into Green Day but this album's really good. It has catchy songs and good lyrics. It's quite addictive too. 2 of the songs on it, Jesus of Surburbia and Homecoming are long songs, like 5 put together - really good. I would definitely recommend this album - go and buy it!… Read Full Review
