Alternative Press rates ¡Tre! 3 out of 5

In the latest issue of Alternative Press, the rock magazine reviews and rates Green Day's final album of the trilogy, ¡Tre! which comes out on December 11th.

The review is mixed, however, it only made me more excited for the album.

"But that's kind of the point; Green Day's recorded catalog sits somewhere around 200 songs, and that breadth includeds everything from sloppy covers of ska-core classics to nine-minute rock-opera suites. So why the fuck NOT write a piano ballad? Or a fun, if WAY-late-to-the-party tribute to the Occupy movement ("99 Revolutions")? Or another multi-part punk-rock suite that's a blast to listen to, even though it has absolutely no context ("Dirty Rotten Bastards")? Or another Nimrod-esque mid-tempo pop-punk number with bassist Mike Dirnt inexplicably singing lead for exactly 10 seconds ("Sex, Drugs, and Violence")?

There's quite a busy thread about this exact article. Seriously, it wasn't even halfway down the front page of the sub-forum. Do you people ever check before posting?
