Green Day: Dos! Now Streaming
The second of Green Day's latest trilogy of albums, "Dos!", is scheduled for release on November 13th. But, ahead of that, the band has released a full stream of the album online. You can hear the record at the following location. The track listing is as follows:

01. See You Tonight 02. F--k Time 03. Stop When The Red Lights Flash 04. Lazy Bones 05. Wild One 06. Makeout Party 07. Stray Heart 08. Ashley 09. Baby Eyes 10. Lady Cobra 11. Nightlife 12. Wow! That's Loud 13. Amy

Green Day's latest trilogy of records is very much shaping up to the band's own Sandinista!, the triple disc set of eclectic musical influences that The Clash released back in 1980. But while the Clash played with the conventions of dub, hip-hop, folk and reggae on that album, Green Day's obsession on Dos! is clearly with pop music of the 50s and 60s. On this latest volume, the band makes that clear from the very start, with the Dylanesque intro "See You Tonight" segueing into "F--k Time", a track which feels like an anarchic twist on early Beatles. "Stop When The Red Lights Flash" makes reference to the band's punk roots, yet classic pop pastiche comes into play again, with the employing of Beach Boys style backing vocals at the song's middle-eight.

"Stray Heart", the album's lead single, could have been written for the Shirelles or the Supremes, and indeed, wouldn't have been out of place in the set of the band's retro-revival side project Foxboro Hot Tubs. "Ashley" and "Baby Eyes" at the album's mid point go for uncomplicated Green Day punk rock. "Nightlife", meanwhile, which comes near the record's close, toys with dirty blues before transforming into straight-up hip-hop.

An eclectic mix then. But what did you think? Let us know in the comments.
