Album Review

On Bad Religion's 15th album in 30 years, the stage opens with a sentimental but roused Greg Graffin reminiscing, “Do you remember when we were young?/Adventure had no end/Those were the days, my friend,” to recall the melodic blast of their early years. Producer Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool) seeks range with some midtempo pop/rockers like “The Devil in Stitches,” "Won't Somebody," and “Cyanide,” the latter with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell on slide guitar. Elsewhere, "Only Rain" takes it back to their roots and features some of Bad Religion’s most provocative anti-Christian commentary — which is saying a lot for a band with a crossed-out cross for a family crest.

Customer Reviews

Hasn't let me down, but...

It isn't an entirely new direction for Bad Religion, but the album feels a bit more sombre than past efforts. The last release, New Maps of Hell, had a lot of raw energy to show us all that, even 30 years on, they can still tear it up as good as ever. It shows, too: a lot of the songs from New Maps have permeated into the set list for their current tour, alongside heavyweights such as You and Generator.

There are still some very choice hits on this album: The Day That the Earth Stalled, The Devil In Stitches, Avalon, remind you of classic Bad Religion, with Only Rain being the standout track here - lingering in the memory above and beyond most other tracks on the record.

Then there are some tracks that, at first, seem a little out of place, but offer catchy melodies and smart lyrics that will grow on you after repeat plays. Pride and the Pallor and Cyanide sit in this category that, while probably not pleasing long standing fans, are good enough to be liked by anybody who has heard Bad Religion before.

The Dissent of Man offers enough to assure the loyal fans that Bad Religion are still very much the same at their core 30 years on, offering enough hits for everyone to enjoy.

Wow

Saw a review of it in kerrang magazine and it got full marks so I thought i'd check It out... And I'm so glad I did, some of the songs on here are just ridiculously good like devil in stitches, only rain and Avalon. A must buy if you love green day and bruce springsteen very good album indeed and so far album of the year in my opinion

Great

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Out of all of the Southern Californian hardcore punk bands of the early '80s, Bad Religion stayed around the longest. For over a decade, they retained their underground credibility without turning out a series of indistinguishable records that all sound the same. Instead, the band refined their attack, adding inflections of psychedelia, heavy metal, and hard rock along the way, as well as a considerable dose of melody. Between their 1982 debut and their first major-label record, 1993's...
