THE UNKNOWN: Bad Religion - Limited Edition CD
The new Bad Religion CD (New Maps of Hell) is getting terrible reviews. And I have no idea why. Okay, so it's not Stranger Than Fiction or even The Empire Strikes First. But I read someone saying that it's worse than The New America. That's just cold-blooded. I bought the album thinking it was going to suck but at the same time I felt compelled to support the band. But the truth is, I think the album is pretty damn good. It's more of a straight-forward punk rock album in the vein of Generator or The Gray Race. And don't groan when I mention those albums. Have you listened to them lately? I did a BR retrospective before this new album came out. Started with Generator and listened straight through their later catalog. I was surprised how much more I liked The Gray Race and even was mildly rocking through No Substance. New America still sucked...but hey, you can't win them all.
Speaking of No Substance, when the album was released they had a promo, giving out a free B-Side album. They used the very clever title of "Limited Edition CD." After the NS run, the album disappeared from the public...until now...
