I love Galway girl track .... it's a good album but can't understand why someone would pay 4.99 digital when 10 Spotify gets you so much more if you enjoy music...... Spotify is my life

My Parents would have been so pleased if I listened to Ed Sheeren back in the day. I mean, he hangs out with James Blunt. This is all far too sensible. I really can't see the appeal either, to the millennials.

God help you as you get older, if you are this conformist now. It's so, so sensibly boring.

You'll turn into the same people that think humans never make mistakes, and will want to fine everyone £200 for even touching a mobile phone while stuck in traffic, because they are bored and phone fiddling, or £100 fines, agreeing with blanket cameras everywhere 24/7 for 'speeding' at 78mph+ on empty motorways in the middle of the night, come rain or shine.

In essence, you'll likely turn out just like Theresa May with authoritarian credentials, "head clipping" everyone in line of sight.
I'd be so despressed if my kid grows up to like this happy clappy music, knowing he'd drift into obscurity of blandness.

Just remember the generation before you doesn't always know best, in what it forces on you, especially in terms of music.

Ha ha ha. Supermarket Flowers is poetry. But, like, really really bad teen poetry.

I tried to get tickets to Apollo too, sold out but got BST in July instead. Never seen them, can't wait, The Killers and White Lies are quality too. Can't wait! A bit envious though. Enjoy!

It's almost just a set of songs, covered by an orchestra
That's exactly why I do like it. I'm also a fan of Pete Townshend's Classic Quadrophenia. It's not to do with who's associated with it, rather the music itself and the interpretation of it. Trance music works particularly well when switching to an orchestral style as it's primarily got no vocals but some very strong melodies - the polar opposite of much music currently on offer.
Really don't like this album. It's almost just a set of songs, covered by an orchestra. If PT name wasn't associated with it no one would buy it.
Great album and saw it live at Manchester Arena a couple of weeks back. Insomnia was incredible! Already bought tickets for standing room next year :)
it is a great album, well worth a look

Spit out the Bone. I'm very much one of those 'they've done nothing great since the 80's' types but this song changed all that for me. I must have listened to it over 15 times already!

I've always liked it, it's probably my favourite thinking about it. An old girlfriend cried one Christmas because it wasn't "anything like Dookie" which she loved. I hope she's seen the light now, '86' and the 'Brainstew/Jaded' combo are the tits.
Haha, I've not resorted to crying over a GD album yet!
86 is an absolute stormer! One of my favourite live performances...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0m8ql3nQPuM

I love '86, and I'm not sure why. It wasn't a single or anything, just something about it resonated with the teenage me. The best song he's ever written/co-written is still this though.

Insomniac is very underrated imo.
You're imagining it. 'Warning' would be underrated, 'Insomniac' is doing fine.
Lol fair point, on the whole though it's usually below Dookie on most people's lists!
Don't get me wrong, I love Dookie. I'd say my top 3 probably go Insomniac -> Nimrod -> Dookie...
Insomniac's up top for me probably because I play bass and I think as an album it's probably got my favourite Dirnty bass lines and fills.

Still no love for Kerplunk? It's the first album I heard from them, before Dookie exploded, and it's got their raw energy and cheekiness all over.

Huge Green Day fan of many years here. Personal fave album is Insomniac. Still don't quite know what to make of this album, hoping it might be a grower.
Didn't mind the trilogy for what it's worth, probably could have consolidated the good stuff down to one disc, though. In fact, I found the far less polished "Demolicious" to be far better, with a cracking raw sound and sounded far more punk rock.
Anyway, Bang Bang is alright, decent enough. Revolution Radio is a great track which I'd rate higher that Bang Bang. The solo in RR is class, love the pinch harmonic, Jason White really is a superb addition to the band. I don't like Say Goodbye which frankly sounds too Fallout Boy for my liking. A lot of the album just seems a little forgettable after the first two listens, I hope that changes in time.
Gutted about the tickets being so expensive and the venues being so far away from Swansea. Seen them every UK tour, sometimes multiple times, for the last 16 years however decided to give it a miss this time with the tickets above £70.
I do get odd looks when I still passionately defend Green Day as still being a great band as people love to rag on them for being sellouts, losing the way and not being punk rock and all that garbage, they're still an awesome band though. I think some people just wanted 6 carbon copies of Dookie in the subsequent years after its release.
Anyway, fan for life here. Heat.
Usual story; change and you're damned by those who only liked one album, stay the same and be accused of sounding boring. Same thing happened to Pearl Jam.

Totally. They can't stay the same forever, imagine being in a band for approaching 30 years writing, recording and performing nearly the exact same tunes over and over. You'd lose your minds. The amount of vitriolic hatred that was spewed when American Idiot was released, for example, was mental. I think it's just fans being bitter that Green Day were back in the mainstream after the relatively quiet "Warning" years until 2004 when American Idiot came out. American Idiot was a genius album though.

I will say - as much as I adore the band - there is one song I loathe. That I'd genuinely be content with never hearing again.

21 Guns. My god it's a steaming pile of turd of a track and the autotune in it was foul!

The civil case was dropped after the settlement but the police investigation was continued and later rejected because it wasn't deemed credible to go to trial. There was simply no evidence. Too many people believe he bought himself out of jail (based on misleading journalism) by paying a civil settlement but that's not how the law works.
Cool story bro.

Rolf Harris and Gary Glitter sales not doing so well these days, are they? Michael Jackson similarly affected? :|
Comparing convicted paedophiles to people who were found innocent. Makes sense.
Civil case I believe....... which was dropped after he paid off the kiddies families.

I believe there is / were problems with loudness levels on Californication. Personally, I think it sounds ok on my CD / mp3 versions. But I would be interested to know if these 24/94 tracks are radically different or better?
Practically no-one can tell the difference between 24/96 and 16/44. You can get the CD from Amazon for £2.98 - save your money and get that instead.

Have learnt some of this and played on the guitar. Didn't bother with Reapers as I am no Eddie Van Halen. Matt Bellamy sure is! :)
I dont really get why people comment on a perticular artist/band if they really aren't into that type of music. I can't stand R&B type music but I never comment as to whether it is any good or not. oO
He's using the tapping style invented a long long time before Van Halen, if you check the pattern he's using in the song it's simple enough to learn, it's just the same thing moved around the neck. Effectively it's single finger tapping, where as Stanley Jordan, and many other players using between 4 and 8 finger tapping. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls1EoPGoYMI
Even unknown players were doing sophisticated tapping long before Van Halen >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPm5MtgDkm0
Even earlier tapping from around the 1930s on a Ukelele >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pzUIQuCC_A
Van Halen popularised tapping but he's nowhere near the best or most sophisticated at it, I guess it's one of those things that the fella that gets credited with the invention doesn't really deserve the credit.
Emmett Chapman invented the Chapman Stick in the late 60s / early 70s. That is an instrument where very sophisticated tapping is employed >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUG6JlVwAWU
I didn't think EVH had invented the style but does seem to get credited as you say. I find the whole tapping and shredding a bit difficult to execute properly mainly due to having smallish hands. Prefer the bends and licks....ooh err! :D

The most important thing is that whatever you play should sound good and not just be an impressive technique. Hendrix had a sloppy technique even in comparison to people playing at the same time as him, but his invention was way beyond anyone else that has played the guitar and of course he came up with some stunning sounding music. There is no one best guitar player ever as no guitarist has become accomplished to the highest standard in every genre, I like what sounds good irrespective of the techniques.

Have learnt some of this and played on the guitar. Didn't bother with Reapers as I am no Eddie Van Halen. Matt Bellamy sure is! :)
I dont really get why people comment on a perticular artist/band if they really aren't into that type of music. I can't stand R&B type music but I never comment as to whether it is any good or not. oO

He's using the tapping style invented a long long time before Van Halen, if you check the pattern he's using in the song it's simple enough to learn, it's just the same thing moved around the neck. Effectively it's single finger tapping, where as Stanley Jordan, and many other players using between 4 and 8 finger tapping.

Even unknown players were doing sophisticated tapping long before Van Halen >

Even earlier tapping from around the 1930s on a Ukelele >

Van Halen popularised tapping but he's nowhere near the best or most sophisticated at it, I guess it's one of those things that the fella that gets credited with the invention doesn't really deserve the credit.

Emmett Chapman invented the Chapman Stick in the late 60s / early 70s. That is an instrument where very sophisticated tapping is employed, and was in use before Van Halen came along in the late 70s >

I like the style of tapping, I could go on, there's so many brilliant acoustic players using the technique. Candyrat.com just go there and you'll see so many excellent players that never get any popularist credit for the talent they have.

Woah!! I don't need any hassle from you and the other Muse Police who liked you comment. I already get loads of grief from people on this site because I vote Halal food deals as hot.
