Chartreuse Day

The new Green Day album is really good, and I've only heard it once in passing while working. Once again, they pull out some amazing chord changes and melodies which, when put together, make some incredible songs. Peacemaker has a sort of minor key Middle–Eastern/Spanish flavor, and I love the way the solo starts with the totally off tempo whole notes.

They also did a side project a while back called Foxboro Hot Tubs, releasing an album called Stop Drop and Roll!!!. It takes them back to their more raw punk roots, but also sounds like a nod to any number of British influences, kinda like Rush's album of covers they did of all the stuff that influenced them in their early days, Feedback.

Buy 'em all! Get some for your friends!
