The Green Album is, dare I say it, good???

I mean, it obviously doesn't check all of the boxes that Blue Album or Pinkerton fill, but it's still a fun listen when it's on. The back end may be a bit lacking but the peaks in the beginning make up for that with some of the best power pop songs of the early 2000s.

Favorites: Hash Pipe, Island In The Sun, Knockdown Dragout

It goes for more of a mainstream sound, but it isn't necessarily horrible. Sadly, with the basic sound, there aren't nearly as many stand-out moments compared to the other two previous albums.
