Several readers were put off by the video for "The Forgotten" because it featured footage from the "Twilight" films. "Not that I'm anti-Twilight, but c'mon... Green Day and Twilight? Nah," said sharathkumar13.
Some said it wasn't a bad album, but remains the weakest effort in the trilogy. "Tre was probably my least favourite, but to be honest they did make a point that it wouldn't be as upbeat as the other two," said helltothee. "Some songs on here are good... but I probably won't listen to this over and over."
Perhaps JorickF put it best: "These albums aren't made to impress critics or to attract new fans. They're made for the people who like Green Day already, giving them a lot of [new] material. Listen to what you like, ignore the rest."
