It's an almost classic punk-rock-opera, with riffs flying off the wall and a story that is both parts a Greek tragity and a full blown "Fight the power" protest rock, during one of the darkest times in American history. And each member pulls their weight and more in this fun as hell jump into political punk rock.

Favorite Jams: Jesus of Suburbia, Homecoming, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

Lest Favorite: She's A Rebel

Sloppy

This is why Punk-rock is ass
You don't care about this sound.. even if you somehow like this album... you don't care about this album sonically, it gets old fast.
You think you like the occasional generic riffs, but you don't. You hate this album.

Best: Boulevard of Dreams

Weakest: Wake Me Up When September Ends

This definitely isn't a 9, but due to a deep personal history, I can't bring myself to take it down any lower
