Green Day-21st Century Breakdown (2009)
The second concept album from the trio sees them have more songs and a longer run time. This album is split into 3 parts.
Part 1:Heroes and Cons
The first part starts with the introduction of our main characters, Christian and Gloria. I see this one as the more rock portion of the album.
Part 2:Charlatans and Saints
The second part continues the story of our main heroes and takes a faster and describes more in depth what the first part only started too.
Part 3:Horseshoes and Handgrenades
The final part is the more punk rock portion and is the beginning of the end for the heroes we spent a journey with. It sees them come to terms with the world and what's happening. All in all I found this record very enjoyable and a solid concept album. Favorite tracks:Song Of The Century, 21st Century Breakdown, Know Your Enemy, ¡Viva La Gloria!, Before The Lobotomy, Christian's Inferno, East Jesus Nowhere, Peacemaker, Last Of The American Girls, Murder City, ¿Viva La Gloria? (Little Girl), Restless Heart Syndrome, Horseshoes And Handgrenades, The Static Age, 21 Guns, American Eulogy, See The Light
It's almost definitely a jam
