21st Century Breakdown just might be the most challenging review I have yet to write. Getting people who dismiss the album as a stale counterpart to their previous accomplishment to see your perspective on how good it actually is will be an obstacle.
I've given this review a great deal of thought, and I am literally scribbling notes down on what I want to say. Hope it's enough to convince the detractors that Green Day might just be the smartest mainstream rock band next to Jimmy Eat World.
Should be posted Tuesday or Wednesday morning, but it's gonna be brutal, man. Getting a mass group of people who have a passionate yawn over this album to see your side (a positive side, at that) can be agonizing.
Coming from a guy who firmly stands his ground on review scores, this one might require me to get my thick skin on -- might be a bumpy ride! Hahaha
