unreal

adj
a.
unbelievably good, excellent
b.
outrageous, excessive or unreasonable in behaviour
Both usages are from the jargon of teenag-ers, firstly (since the 1960s) in the USA and later elsewhere in the English-speak-ing world. The expression in fact originated in the beatnik era when unreal was an ex-clamation of hallucinated delight or admi-ration.
