CRITIC REVIEWS

Drowned in Sound

¡Dos! is a reliably fun, garagey treat - and should be viewed as no more than that.

PopMatters

By process of elimination, ¡Dos! is the best Green Day studio album since American Idiot—given the uneven nature of the LPs in between, that’s praise that demands qualifiers.

60
NME

For all their fitful moments of greatness, these albums remain too cluttered with filler to measure up against the best of the band’s stuff, though ‘¡Dos!’ is a tentative step in the right direction.

A.V. Club

¡Dos! is the sophomore slump of a trilogy that’s shaping up to be far less fun than it was supposed to be.

40
Consequence of Sound

With a lack of depth, a messy focus, and a bloated sense of evolution, ¡Dos! isn’t only a forgettable sequel to a bland predecessor, but a slip down the ladder Green Day has attempted to extend for over a decade.

musicOMH

It’s an album from a band trying so hard to be relevant, that even they don’t know where they stand anymore.

No Ripcord

Unfortunately, no amount of nostalgia can turn Dos! into a nearly passable effort.

Pop punk without the fun (at least most of the time). It SOUNDS fun, but there’s nothing of substance here, in the uninteresting instrumentals and sometimes cringe-worthy lyrical passages. Fuck time. All my homies hate time.

Color: Brown
FAV TRACKS: Nightlife, Amy, Lazy Bones, See You Tonight
LEAST FAV: Fuck Time, Ashley, Makeout Party, Baby Eyes, Wow! That’s Loud

Did Green Day honestly believe that they could get somewhere with this "3 album concept(?)" thing and expect it to prove they're still making music worth listening to? Trick question! They never were making music worth any investment (okay 21 Guns was p tight).

¡Dos! manages to be more entertaining than ¡Uno!, yet simultaneously a much worse album. The first thing I’ll say is that the best songs on here - unlike ¡Uno - were actually really good. A lot of songs were held up by the instrumentals, which for the most part were much better than ¡Uno!. In fact, there were a couple of songs, like Makeout Party - which ended up being my favourite song - which when it began I didn’t care for, but once the guitar solo kicked ... read more

No, this isn't awful actually.
While at many points it's horrifically dumb (f u c k t i m e), at least it's kind of an ACDC type dumb where they're kinda aware of how stupid the music is. As well as this, the guitarwork is actually more tight than your average Green Day (thanks Jason) and I think they should consider adding Jason as a full time member for this shit.
