Details Release Date: Nov 13, 2012; Lead Performance: Green Day; Genre: Rock; Production: Reprise Records

Considering frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's recent rehab stint, the hedonistic vibe on ¡Dos!, the second in a trilogy, may feel ill-timed. But scratch the party-till-you-puke surface and there's plenty of minor-key darkness lurking below, as in the bleary-eyed ''Lazy Bones'' and the lounge- lizard groove propping up ''Nightlife.'' This debauched evening draws to a close with Armstrong's teary Amy Winehouse tribute ''Amy'' — now a meta-commentary on the sad consequences of a breakneck lifestyle. B+
