Who the heck is Billy Joel and what does he have to do with Green Day? Were you joking by throwing out a name that doesn't belong in this commenary or are you sincerely misinformed?

To the comment below me: Billy Joel is a musician and I don't think that the author of this review is misinformed. Green Day combined lots of other musicians styles e.g. of Queen, John Lennon and yes, also Billy Joel on their new CD.But unfortunately, those musicians are way too big to be 'converted' into a typical Green Day sound.I've been listening to Green Day since 1994 and in my opinion 21st CBD only sells that well, because the American Idiot hype is still present.But it isn't a good album at all, sorry, that's just my opinion.I really hope their next album will consist less of other musicians ideas and will be more Green Day as they used to be. Sure, musicians improve or 'grow up' but you can't try to be a second U2's Bono when you started by writing angry critical songs about society. It's hard to believe that they are really convinced of what they wrote. But that's as I said just my opinion. Lydia
