I will say one thing, though: they certainly can voice the feelings of the self-proclaimed "misunderstood", angsty, goth-y youth of today's generation like no one else.

gothy? really?

21st Century Breakdown > No Line On The Horizon

While I like NLOTH, I agree with this.

Call me crazy, but I like American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown more than their other albums

I agree. Think they got a bit better over time. The whole pseudo-punk thing was worn out years ago anyway.

Yes, the quality of being goth.

:P Fine, I agree, goth doesn't work; punk-y then?

I dunno, I wasn't a fan of 21st Century, but I did like American Idiot a lot, great CD. 21st Century just seemed very bland and repetitive to me.

dude, it's GREEN DAY. It's not like quality's important.
Sorry but I think 21st Century Beakdown as an concept album from start to finish is a better album than NLOTH.
