It’s a shame John Hughes isn’t around anymore, because most songs here could easily fit the smarter end of his output.
Good. I'm pleased to know that the tracks they've put out there so far are the weaker ones. I still like Green Day, but the last album was a patience tester so this sounds promising...
It's 'Dookie' meets the Fox Boro Hottubs album.
Wonder why they led off with such unrepresentative stuff then?
It's curious isn't it... In the case of 'Oh Love', maybe because it's a link to the last record, and in the case of 'Kill the DJ' possibly because it's the biggest leap forward, and potentially a radio hit. 'Nuclear Family' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHmSyGjf6BA&feature=plcp) and 'Let Yourself Go' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_8C3Z1W_HI&feature=relmfu) are MUCH more representative.
