If this topic hasn't already been made, I would love to know how you guys would rate these three albums amongst your favorites in Green Day's album catalog. I personally enjoy American Idiot and 21CB, but I'm more of a Dookie and Warning chick, so I'd say the trilogy, which combines some of those elements in my opinion, ranks pretty high up there with them, though not quite at the top. What about you guys?

I'm more into the Sweet Children EP. Everything they did after that is corporate sellout bullshit. Fuck Green Day. And fuck the trilogy.

Alright, since the conversation is not exacty flowing smoothly, I'll throw in another question for good measure: How does the trilogy, in particular Tre, compare to Warning? Dookie is a category of its own, so I won't compare that to anything.

I'd put Tre up there with Nimrod, but below Dookie, American Idiot & 21CB. Dos and Uno would be just below that, above and below Insomniac respectively. Actually, it would be easier if I just did a table.

 

1. 21st Century Breakdown

2. American Idiot

3. Dookie

4. Nimrod / Tre

6. Dos

7. Insomniac

8. Uno

9. Warning

10. Kerplunk

11. 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours

Thanks for the advice. And I don't care about the whole "lol she doesn't know I'm a troll with several accounts" or whatever is going on here, I'm here to talk about Green Day and to have fun. Think that's allowed?

4. 1,039/SOSH
5. Uno
6. Tré
7. 21st Century Breakdown
8. Dos

Because the Triology is weak. The music sounds all the same ( :( ) and the lyrcis are uncreative and compared to AI/21st CB and warning the level of the lyrics is very low. The triology is definitely a step backwards of the musical development that GD made in the past years.

Not unless it's gonna be people posting a list instead of active conversation.

For example, I like that Uno is simple, I wouldn't like yet another bloody opera filled with references to books I haven't read and characters with names on a continuous downward spiral.
Simply it reminds me of a more adult version of Dookie, it went from masturbation to sex in a good way.

4. Kerplunk + 1039/SOSH
5. Nimrod
6. Uno
7. Tre
8. AI
9. Warning
10. 21CB
Dos on 3 cause garage rock sound, i enjoyed that. Kind of listening to Johnny Thunders record. AI doesn't cheer me anymore. Warning was never what Green Day were. 21CB was a follow up to AI. Never liked that that record. Very much polished record!

Alrighty. 

 

1. Nimrod

2. American Idiot

3. Insomniac

4. 21CB 

5. Kerplunk+1,039/SOSH

6. Dookie

7. Uno

8. Tré 

9. Dos  

10. Warning (I don't like it, mmkay?)

 

They claimed that the trilogy's gonna be more back to the roots, but I kinda don't feel that at all which disappoints me a little. Sure, the lyrics are more personal but that's where the similarities stop. Uno Dos and Tre got a unique sound on their own and it's alright, but I hope they're going for something darker next time.

Obviously the things posted in this thread were pretty funny sarcasm, but sometimes the sarcasm on this forum is kind of mean and unnecessary, and sometimes can be likened to the evil four letter word that is a can of jellymeat.

ANYWHOOO I think I'd probably have to rate the trilogy a little low on my list of best GD albums, but I think it has some of their best songs they've ever written. I just think the concept of a trilogy of albums didn't work for them; they weren't ready to make their own Sandinista! or anything. However, I also don't think it would have worked as a single album, but rather it would have been a much stronger double album.

1) American Idiot

2) ¡Tré!

3) Nimrod

4) 21CB

5) ¡Dos!

6) Warning

7) Insomniac

8) Dookie

9) ¡Uno!

 

I found ¡Uno! was consistent but just not that amazing. I still love it but it's my least favorite.

¡Dos! has two songs I don't like on but the other 11 were amazing although some of the lyrics were a bit weak in my opinion.

¡Tré! was absolutely amazing, really consistent and is without a doubt one of my favorite Green Day albums already.

 

Loved the Trilogy as a whole and a great addition to the other albums if you ask me. :)
