iTunes Review

The Dissent of Man is the fifteenth Bad Religion album. The Southern California punk rock band formed in 1979 and has reordered their lineup quite a few times over the years. At the onset, they were one band among many, but by the late ‘80s, it was becoming apparent that their melodic and sincere punk-rock styling was likely to outlast their competition. The Dissent of Man is everything that made the band’s reputation. “The Day That the Earth Stalled” and “Only Rain” are tight, powerful songs that fulfill the needs of any guitar-rock fan’s cravings. Even their ballads, “Won’t Somebody” and “Turn Your Back On Me,” have more speed and power than many group’s more upbeat works. The trick is in the harmonies and their insistence on sticking with what gave them their greatest success. Their natural abilities are not tied down to punk’s rigid code, but are aligned with what makes great pop music. The Deluxe Version is a real  treat. The live cuts “Best For You,” “How Much is Enough?,” and “Generator,” prove what a great live band they are as well.

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.


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


Very good! Much better than their last album!

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 its 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 Recipe for Hate,...
