In early February, punk rock band Green Day released their thirteenth studio album titled Father Of All. If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, that’s okay, because the album only has 10 songs, most of which are under three minutes. Fun fact, the 26-minute runtime of the album makes it the band’s shortest one to date. The album’s more pop-punk sound is drastically different from American Idiot. Father of All features more catchy and upbeat tracks, which is not something Green Day fans are looking for. For example, the title track features a high pitch vocal performance from Billy Joe Armstrong, which is quite different from many of the band’s other songs where Billy Joe has much more of a sneer in his singing. With that being said, the tracks on the album are still fun and enjoyable. Although it doesn’t feel like a genuine Green Day album, Father of All is still, without a doubt, worth a listen.
