Rating – 8/10 – GREAT Album
In the previous year, Green Day unveiled their album Saviors, kicking off with the lead single “The American Dream Is Killing Me” accompanied by a music video set against a backdrop of a zombie apocalypse. The band first performed this track live, setting the tone for their 15-track album that includes songs like “Dilemma,” “One Eyed Bastard,” and “Look Ma, No Brains!” The recording of “Saviors” took place in both London and Los Angeles, under the guidance of Rob Cavallo, known for producing their hit albums like Dookie, Insomniac, Nimrod, American Idiot, and Bullet in a Bible. “Saviors” stands out as a bold statement of protest and dissatisfaction, with Green Day delivering a powerful critique of American culture. Each track on the album is not only catchy but also resonates with themes of political unrest in America. This album comes highly recommended for its impactful and resonant message.
