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.

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.

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.

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

Green Day's "¡DOS!" is a painfully mediocre & overproduced slog to get through, especially at its most overproduced & stale moments. But there are alright moments on here, & it's not like I hate or even think most of these songs are bad, except for the weird genre pivot that I'll get to at some point in this review (if you know you KNOW).

"See You Tonight" is a short 1-minute acoustic track in the vein of "Song of the Century", & it's okay. ... read more

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).

This is the worse out of the Uno Dos Tre trilogy. This is just really bad. So, this is the second to worst Green Day album.

Favorites: Fuck Time

OK Songs: Stop When The Red Lights Flash, Lady Cobra

Songs That I Dislike/Hate: Jesus there's a lot that wasn't worth it.
