The final entry to Green Day's album trilogy is a relatively weak effort according to UG readers, but only because the other entries were such a hit.

UG readers have posted mixed reactions to the latest album in Green Day's new album trilogy, "Tre!".
It received an overall rating of only 6/10 in our official review.
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."
Green Day recently posted the entire "Tre!" album for streaming. Meanwhile, frontman Billie Joe Armstronghas put his $1.9 million beach property up for sale as he deals with addiction in rehab.
