The third and final installment of Green Day's planned trilogy starts with a gentle, swaying pop song that lifts its melody straight from Sam Cooke's "Bring It on Home 8th Avenue Serenade - Green Day - ¡Tré! Me," with a horn section complementing the sweet harmonies. Except the song is called "Brutal Love," and its guitar solo is a heartwrenching scrape against the strings.
It's a gentle way of easing listeners into the closing chapter of Billie Joe Armstrong's massive songwriting purge. Hooks are Armstrong's strong suit, and even in a somber, reflective mood he reels off compact melodies that say more than any 8th Avenue Serenade - Green Day - ¡Tré! he could write. It isn't all wistful thinking: "99 Revolutions" tips its hat to the Occupy movement, while "Dirty Rotten Bastards" is a multi-part punk opera in six and a half minutes.
