Warner Bros
UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Carries so little flab that it really does deserve to be another worldwide smasheroo. Print edition only

  2. 7.3 |   AltSounds

    There are tracks here which can be added to the Green Day cannon, but the trouble is there’s just as many misses as there are hits

  3. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    This full-length nevertheless reaffirms Green Day is still capable of an engaging LP, and it rights the course for the ¡Uno!/¡Dos!/¡Tre! trilogy after a shaky start

  4. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    The band follows lineal threads from Dookie-era punk into all manner of overheated angst
    Read Review

  5. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    A reliably fun, garagey treat
    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   State

    What is evident within this trilogy is the attempt to forge modern expectations with old school sensibility, even if it doesn’t always work
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   NME

    These albums remain too cluttered with filler to measure up against the best of the band's stuff

  8. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    There’s nothing here you haven’t heard a thousand times before and melody is an elusive butterfly forever out of reach
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   The Scotsman

    Individually, these tracks wouldn’t amount to much more than throwaway fun but, cumulatively, they create another very likeable melodic collection

  10. 6.0 |   BBC

    Middling-to-fair central act of seminal pop-punks’ 2012 album trilogy
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Much like its immediate predecessor, Dos suggests that the album triptych probably should've been edited into one strong album rather than spread out over multiple releases
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Spin

    ¡Dos! has enough arresting songs to keep hope alive
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   Q

    The braver Green Day are, the better they are. Print edition only

  14. 5.8 |   Paste Magazine

    More-so than Uno!, the first of the band’s 2012 trilogy, Dos! bears the strain of a man—and a songwriter—crying out for help

  15. 4.2 |   A.V. Club

    The sophomore slump of a trilogy that’s shaping up to be far less fun than it was supposed to be

  16. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    Oddly leaden and largely witless
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    With a lack of depth, a messy focus, and a bloated sense of evolution, ¡Dos! isn’t only a forgettable sequel to a bland predecessor, but a slip down the ladder Green Day has attempted to extend for over a decade

  18. 4.0 |   The Observer

    A set that's oddly leaden and largely witless
    Read Review

  19. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    So – one down, two down. Already, we have concerns for No 3
    Read Review

  20. 4.0 |   Tone Deaf

    After the release of Uno!, Green Day sounded more vital than they had in years. But now, they just sound tired
    Read Review

  21. 3.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    It’s still not clear what Green Day hoped to achieve with all this crap

  22. 2.0 |   No Ripcord

    Why do albums like this get made?
