Green Day "Oh Love" Song Review — 5 out of 5 stars

So, how do you evolve after two stellar rock operas?
If you're Green Day, you plot three big albums, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!, for successive release in the mere span of months. The first single from ¡Uno!, "Oh Love", sounds as grandiose as any of the band's massive conceptual fare, but with an old school rock twist.
"Oh Love" is Green Day at their biggest and most brilliant. Billie Joe Armstrong's hulking guitar moves in perfect sync with Tre Cool's calculated beats as Mike Dirnt holds down a smooth low end. Armstrong croons out the chorus flawlessly, bringing Beatles-style pop brilliance into an arena rock setting.
As the melody careens, Armstrong pulls off an elegantly harmonious solo befitting of the song's bombast. As far as Green Day hits go, this is one of their best, and the perfect prelude to the triple salvo of records on the horizon.
We're already in love, knowing ¡Uno! is bound to be a classic.
