Nimord marks the beginning of a slump from which the band would not recover for nearly a decade. The prom/graduation classic "Time of Your Life" is probably the high point of this CD, though there are a couple tracks that offer the few hints from this era of what Green Day is capable of at their best.

Great Music from a Great Band

(5 out of 5 stars)
"It is such a shame to see a great band like Green Day being the target of so much negative criticism. Here is a band who can make great music, are impressive as hell when performing live, and they never seems to put out an album with the sole purpose of being popular or on TV so much. (If that were the case, they would release more albums at a time.) Green Day is one of my all time favorites and they continue to do nothing but impress me. "Nimrod" is an excellent album with a ton of great songs.You can see how much the band has matured and how they have grown musically. They are always willing to try new things, which is something you really see lacking in some of these newer punk or alternative bands. The guitar playing is great, the drumming is always impressive, and the singing and lyrics are reflections of top-notch talent.EVERY song on this album is great, but here are some of my favorites: hitchin' a ride, the grouch, nice guys finish last, worry rock, scattered, king for a day, walking alone, prosthetic head, and time of your life. (Seeing the song "king for a day" actually performed live really enriches the song and makes you appreciate it more.)Green Day is a fabulous band who has never disappointed me once. I just think they got popular too quick and then people started burning out on them. It is a shame because they are a great band who can play music. If you love to hear outstanding music from an exceptional band, Green Day's "Nimrod" might be the CD for you. Definitely worth checking out!"
Great, But Different

"This CD is a lot different than other Green Day Cd's in the past, but it is still awesome. The songs have many different chords than Dookie. You'll never get tired of it becausethere are 18 songs and it is 50 minutes long! Here are rundowns of all of the songs:1. Nice Guys Finish Last- an explosive CD to start off the album. 2. Hitchin' a Ride- Another great, short song.3. The Grouch- this song has the most bad words in it than any other song. Oh well, it's still great and very funny.4. Redundant- a slower song that's one of my favroites.5. Scattered- Not the best, but still good.6. All the time- This song's pretty good but not the best.7. Worry Rock- This song is awesome!8. Platypus- A fast and to the point song. Good luck figuring out the lyrics cause they dont have them in the lyric book.9. Uptight- Not as good as some of the others.10. Last Ride in- A wonedrful all-instrumental piece. 11. Jinx- Another funny and fast song.12. Haushinka- this song has many different guitar riffs but it's not all pulled together.13. Walking Alone- An experimental, somewhat folk song.14. Reject- A great song with good lyrics15. Take Back- One of my favorites. This one minute song is great if you have just broken up with someone and you're really mad. 16. King for a day- a funny song about a boy who wants to be a girl. It's an experimental piece that has horns in it so it sounds somewhat like a ska song.17. Time of your Life- The band shows their soft side with this great song, which is still played on a lot of radio stations.18. Prosthetic Head- MY FAVORITE SONG ON THE WHOLE ALBUM! Great guitar riffs and great lyrics is why this song is my favorite."
