All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
When Green Day's first album appeared, anyone predicting that fame, MTV, top-selling albums, and more would be on the horizon in the near future would have been happily patted on the head and then sent to the insane asylum. It helps to remember that Nirvana's breakthrough was still a year away, for one thing, and, for another, 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour isn't a truly great album in the first place. It's not bad, by any means, and quite arguably just about everything on it could be transposed with a slight aural tweak here and there to Dookie or Insomniac without anyone batting an eye. It's just little more than a fun punk-pop album with some entertaining metallic flash ...

When Green Day's first album appeared, anyone predicting that fame, MTV, top-selling albums, and more would be on the horizon in the near future would have been happily patted on the head and then sent to the insane asylum. It helps to remember that Nirvana's breakthrough was still a year away, for one thing, and, for another, 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour isn't a truly great album in the first place. It's not bad, by any means, and quite arguably just about everything on it could be transposed with a slight aural tweak here and there to Dookie or Insomniac without anyone batting an eye. It's just little more than a fun punk-pop album with some entertaining metallic flash here and there, one of many such records that the late '80s and early '90s produced in the indie rock world. After a great start with "At the Library," it's quickly clear that the rest of the record is going to continue in the same vein. What's fun is realizing how much the band already had to work with, pursuing obvious love of three-chord forebears like the Dickies and the Ramones to energetic if not revelatory ends. Billie Joe Armstrong's balance of disaffection and nervous, goofy passion is well in place, while he's already showing his effective, no-frills approach to chewy feedback melody. Songs like "I Was There" and "Road to Acceptance," not to mention the implicitly weed-celebrating "Green Day" itself, are great calling cards for later breakouts on both levels. Mike Dirnt's no slouch himself, providing good backing vocals when needed for harmony, but oddly enough the most prominent performance throughout comes from original drummer John Kiftmeyer, who wouldn't last through to the next album. Call it a quirk of recording, but there it is.

    Great CD

    This is a great cd if you are a green day fan. It is very good and should be more popular than it really is. I like the tracks Going to paslacqua, 1000 hrs,at the library, and green day.

    A Must-have c.d. for any Green Day fan

    If you are a true Green Day fan and you don't have this c.d., you have to get it (and you absolutely will not regret it.) It's really the best example of Green Day's punk roots and the songs are great (although rather simple.) The lyrics are quite straightforward, which I suppose could be a good or a bad thing. My favorite tracks on the c.d. were "Going to Pasalacqua," "1000 Hours," and "16." I guess the only setback was that the studio quality of the recording isn't all that great, but it also gives a nice effect to the music.

    See where it all started

    This ablum is great to listen to. Espically if you are a Green Day fan like me. Hear what they sounded like four years before Dookie. Songs like ''At The Library'' and ''I Want To Be Alone'' are really intresting.

It rocks, and it's some old school Green Day-not some of that new Warning sh*_.....It's got some kick as% guitar....and BJ's voice is like backin the insomniac days. If You are a real Green Day fan....get this Cd because it just plain kicks a^*!!!!!!!!!!!

    1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour

    This album seems to be along the lines of Punk for Green Day. Although the common clutter in punk music is still in the albums backgrounds it seems to be smoothed out by course(yet smooth) pop lyrics. As earlier mentioned, Green Day seems to be searching for their own sound which they seem to find later on Nimrod and Imsomniac. 1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour gives a good mix of sound and variety of music that seems to be killed by Green Day's redundancy later.

    First major CD for Green Day is a good one.

    For the fact that it is not that popular, this is a fantastic album. This is considered Green Days first CD, and it was a great start for them. Green Day's stile has really evolved over the years, and they are a great rock band. I highly recommend this CD. Some good tracks on this CD are ''At The Library'', ''Going To Pasalacqua'', ''Paper Lanterns'', and the best track, ''Only Of You''.

    i love green day.

    i think Green Day has been a great band from when they first started and i think they have done a lot for punk rock in general. Green Day has been around for a long time and i hope they stay around for many more years to come!
