Christo, Hartbeespoort. 18 July 2005

It’s not unusual when a lot of hype surrounds a new album, but it’s a whole different matter when it actually lives up to all the fuss. One such album is Green Day’s American Idiot. Released just before last year’s American elections, it came at a time when Americans with an opinion decided to speak up rather than sit around and watch the unwanted happen again (see Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11). But as Tony Hicks, an American music critic said in a review of the album in the Contra Costa Times in California, the difference between opinionated art from Michael Moore and Green Day is more than just in the delivery. People expect Green Day to be the same, smirking, nose-picking, East Bay punks they were a decade ago. When a band like Green Day, goes way out on a limb like this, it's worth noticing. Months after the election and seven Grammy nominations later (winning Best Rock Album), American Idiot remains a CD that literally grabs the listener, forcing him or her to actually listen to what is being said. It does this whilst still being 100% Green Day: up-beat punk-rock that is extremely listenable. They succeed in creating a flow between the tracks while staying focused on the message they are trying to convey to their impressionable fans. The title-track is brilliant, as is follow-up single Boulevard of Broken Dreams. With punk music I usually lean towards the fast-paced tracks, and in true Green Day style they deliver with brilliant offerings like St. Jimmy, Letterbomb and the remarkable She’s A Rebel. But there’s even a “normal” pop song (Extraordinary Girl) and two mini rock-epics: Jesus of Suburbia and Homecoming, each comprising five parts, and all contributing to the brilliant album that American Idiot is. Whether you’re into political statements or not, American Idiot is an album I’ll recommend to any fan of rock music.
