With the release of a new album buy my favorite band I was eager to get my hands on it. Thought it took awhile I finally got to listen to it. While nothing will ever compare to the epic that was the Dookie album “21st century breakdown” does a pretty good job. With strong emotions about how the governments bad decisions affect our daily lives “21st century breakdown” tells the story of teen humanitarian Gloria who just want peace on earth falling in love with anarchist Christen who has a lot of personal demons. Though the pair seems farfetched they both com together in the common hatred of the world around them. The album also brings to mind the war with static radio sounding opening “song of the century” wich bring to mind a am station news report. How this album stacks up against other earlier albums is up to the listener but with all the fame of “dookie” and “American idiot” the album had a lot of press to live up to and in my opinion it gave all that was expected and more.
