[quote]Green Day's second rock opera is more ambitious than "American Idiot": richer, more diverse, more urgent, more flat-out tuneful and also more confusing. The ultimate target of the songs' rage and frustration can be unclear - the most pointed song can only ask "Do you know your enemy?" - but the ambition and the spirit of punky rebellion are strong.[/quote]
