I finally purchased and listened to Green Day’s “American Idiot.” I was nearly brought to tears listening to Jesus of Suburbia. What an awesome collection of songs! The only other album that had a similar emotional impact in the post-2000 music era was the White Stripes “Elephant” and that album brought me back to the music scene that I thought was dead and gone. Who knew Green Day had such an effort in them? Seems they aged a bit and became fine wine. One of the few albums where there really isnt a bad song on the disc.
I hope there’s a boxed DVD set of Live 8 available soon. Everyone is chatting about the performances and I didn’t get to see any of it.
