Green Day Warning on LP from Warner Bros.
Tight 2000 Studio Album Takes More Serious Musical Turns, Includes Strings and Abundant Textures
Indeed, further proof that Green Day can do much more than three-chord punk, the passionate and hope-filled 2000 release Warning
serves as the perfect ice breaker for the band's future endeavors into
more complex and conceptual pop. Featuring the hit songs "Minority," "Warning" and "Waiting,"
and several string arrangements, the release boasts the raw power,
freedom and excitement of the band's early days while functioning as the
perfect transition into the more ambitious material that would
subsequently propel the band to new commercial heights. Single regular
weight LP pressed at Pallas, Diepolz Germany in a Stoughton direct to
had it right when writer Nick Catucci noted that, on Warning
, Green Day
"fully focus on the textures that have always differentiated its sturdy grooves and simple melodies. Billie Joe Armstrong's voice, now as throaty as it's always been whiny, leads a dozen speedy, neatly packaged reinterpretations of pop-rock history, from the Beatles to Creedence Clearwater Revival to the Ramones themselves."
