CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

They demonstrate a bit of depth with "When I Come Around," but that just varies the pace slightly, since the key to this is their flippant, infectious attitude -- something they maintain throughout the record, making Dookie a stellar piece of modern punk that many tried to emulate but nobody bettered.

Alternative Press
Fans of the band’s simple pop-punk can’t deny the progress Green Day made with their songwriting, or the boon to their sound that proper production values lends.

Consequence of Sound
The East Bay legends tapped into far more than just feelings of alienation and boredom.

Amazing

“Dookie” is one of the best pop punk releases that have ever graced my ears. The sheer brutality of the power chords mixed with the sweet melodies from Armstrong and the driving drum patterns show a huge climb in quality since their past two records.

So at least this is shorter than American Idiot and also the filler is not as samey and boring.
But I would never come back to this to listen to more than the few songs I like. Also, never noticed the two acoustic tracks by the end.
Still, its green day. Only reason one could be listening to this now is nostalgia.
I love the bass line on Longview.

Anyway, FAV TRACKS: Longview, Welcome to Paradise, Basket Case, When I Come Around

While at times the fast, intense and teenage angst-filled punk peppiness can give listeners "Burnout" (hehehe), but it's still a great album that stands the test of time in becoming the defining pop-punk revival movement.

Favorite Jams: Chump, Welcome To Paradise, F.O.D.

Lest Favorite: All By Myself
