Tidal Catalog #28 (Update #1): Green Day

The fun part of these Tidal catalogs now is that they are living documents. As new official records get released, I will go ahead and update them moving forward so that they always stay current. You can reference the original post, here.

  • Album: Father of All…Motherfuckers
  • Review: Three years ago Green Day released Revolution Radio and I hated that sucker. Thought it was lazy, retread material and severely lacked originality. Then over time I kept listening and it started getting better and better to my ears. The first listen to Father of All… says that it’s lazy, retread material and severely lacked originality. So come back in a year or so and see what I think, I guess. But for now, I’ve listened to it maybe 10 times and it’s gotten slightly better than my initial thought. And 10 times is easy for this album considering it clocks in at a whopping 26 minutes over ten tracks. If you’ve listened to the singles, you would have a heard a bit of glam rock, some garage and some punk this time around – with the glam element present throughout the disc. So it does sound a bit different than recent Green Day albums but everything on it has been done a million times and I don’t think repeated listens will allow me to forget that. It’s definitely a bit of a lazy release from the group and one of the few in their catalog that I can anticipate not heading back to after the initial desire to listen wears off.
