“Father of All Motherfuckers” (or “Father of All...” for the wittle bebes out there) is the sign of a once-beloved band biting off WAY more than they could possibly swallow whole. While the performances are tight, the second half definitely picks up and there were a few decent to good tracks, this 26-minute album suffers greatly from awful lyrics, an overly commercial sound and next-to-nothing in terms of fresh ideas. Overall, considering their consistently dwindling album run for the past two decades, I’m afraid Green Day is on the verge of retirement.
You know Green Day has given up when they use the most basic blues progression known to mankind on one of their songs.
