Lyrics — 8
I think the lyrics are brilliant, as they always are in Green Day's case! Examples of these great lyrics are "Shut your mouth 'cause you're talking too much and I don't give a f**k anyway!" and "You, I wanna get inside of you, I wanna crack your cranium delirium on the lower left side of your mind."
Overall Impression — 9
In my opinion, it's their best album sinceNimrod either. The best songs on it are Let Yourself Go, Troublemaker and Oh Love. Definitely worth buying.
