Insomniac will always be my favourite GD album. The rawness of it, the dark themes, and the fact that it wasn't in the same mould as Dookie just makes for a good combo. I can relate to more songs on that album than on any other, got me through some horrible shit.

"Broken glass inside my head, bleeding down these thoughts of anguish... Mass confusion."

 

Insomniac, in my opinion, is the absolute best Green Day record. Reason being, is how dark and heavy the album is as a whole. From the artwork, to the lyrics, and most importantly their sound.

This album is similar to Nirvana's In Utero, or Weezer's Pinkerton. After the release of their breakthrough record, the bands are suddenly propelled into the spotlight. A sense of anger and depression are present on all these albums.

Not only was Insomniac much more angry and agressive, but so were the members of Green Day. In just about every interview I've seen from the insomniac Era they seem to be a lot more serious and a lot more agressive toward the interviewer.

My favorite songs off the album would have to be Panic Song, Westbound Sign, and Stuart and the Ave.

I can listen to this album back to back anytime and never get tired of it.

Yeah what a great album. I still remember the day I got the CD. I really wish they played No Pride live more, I just listened to that one a few times recently and I think its one of their best songs overall
