Anyone agree than Insomniac is the best thing they've done?

In the 90s he never sounded that pretentious or absurd, it was down to earth stuff, sometimes sarcastic, that's what I liked about them.

There's less filler on Dookie, but the 'great' tracks off of Insomniac reign supreme.

Even though Emenius Sleepus is my fave GD track.

I love Insomniac most (hence my username). Still, Dookie is really close and Nimrod third.

A classic for nostalgia, but not very good in terms of quality, commercialised to fuck

Foxboro Hot Tubs was a nice twist and I enjoy hearing the garage influences on these three records, but 14 songs or so were enough to do the job. Of course, the non-sense lyrics only make things worse.

Andcas, say all you want about what Green Day is "trying to do," but you are looking at this whole
thing incorrectly. I've seen the clips from the documentary. The band got together in their practice
room and played out the tunes they liked and then put them on an album. They are not "trying" to do
anything, like be "this" or "that." They are putting out music that they like, just as any band. I
really like Tre, and that is with a mindset that isn't plagued by hate for a band that "changed."

You, me, and the rest of us are over-analyzing and over-judging the band. We need to just take a
step back and remember that this is Green Day we are talking about. Go back and listen to Insomniac
and you may be surprised by how average it is.

I do.

I wanted to point out that with the exception of Dookie, Tre lives up to Green Day's standards set
before 21st Century Breakdown came out. It hits as hard as Warning and American Idiot in most places,
and it has it's own flavor. I'd say I've listened to the album 7 or 8 times, and it isn't getting old.
The album stretches the basic Green Day style as much as possible. After this, it would make sense for
Green Day to make a large change, but a change that makes sense.
