¡DOS!
Green Day
(Warner)

This second instalment of a three-albums-in-three-months marketing ploy does little to ease the feeling that all that 90s garage-punk energy has been sold down the river for a pile of money.

Although taking the piss has always been a Green Day stamp of authority, the fact that Billie Joe Armstrong has been carted off to rehab and much of ¡Dos! hints at the darker side of life means that this is no funtime teenage soundtrack.

Even the usual stolen riffs and Brit-rock playlist search comes off as lackluster with only the bizarre female rap track Nightlife putting any punch into proceedings. Two down, only one more to go...
