5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Years of Punk On One Disc. July 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Alright, I'm going to break down this album into the many parts that it is in.
How Can Hell Be Any Worse: Released in 1980, this album is one of the most influental and individual albums of it's time. Conbining for the first intellegent lyrics with melodic hardcore punk rock. Easy to compare to their later work, this album shows their ability to show their ideas of a better world in a more honest and civilized way then most of the music of their time.
The album also includes the classic track "F**k Armagedeon, This Is Hell" which has been voted one of the greatest punk songs by many BR and punk fans.
Classic (5 Stars)
Bad Religion EP: The classic debut album from the band. Includes the original version of their classic signiture song, and the original recordings of "Slaves" and "Drastic Actions". It's the most wanted and bootlegged Bad Religion album of all time.
Classic (5 Stars)
Back to the Known: A follow-up to their experimental and unsuccessful 1982 failure "Into the Unknown", this album comes back with the original Bad Religion style, but still not the same. The songs are at times longer, and deal with a more deeper intensity.
The album includes the classic sssslllloooowwww version of their signiture track "Bad Religion", and also the original recording of the classic "Along the Way" which has been voted the best BR song, ever. The album also includes the tracks "New Leaf" and "Yesterday" that show a matured Bad Religion.
Classic (5 Stars)
The last three tracks are cuts from the compilation "Public Service".

5.0 out of 5 stars Conure666@aol.com says "before they sucked" Jan. 7 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ok so maybe that is a little harsh. I was really into Bad Religion a few years back, before "Recipe" came out. That album marked when they officially signed onto Atlantic records and went downhill fast. That said, This album is amazing. Like the title gives away, this is a recording compiling their early tracks. It includes tracks that are now WAY out of print and WILL not be released again, as the singer Greg G says that too many of their old songs suck. This covers the time where the band entered a keyboardist(!) into the outfit. It also covers the time where they started to make an album, "Back to the Known", and broke up before finishing. Greg went to Oxford to study (as the story goes, anyway) Cellular Biology. Upon coming back to the US, they reformed and put out "Suffer", by far their best recording ever.(there should be a law requiring you to know that cd by heart. Really. No kidding.) Alot of good tracks on this cd. Check out "Yesterday", "The Voice of god...", "New Leaf", and the 3 versions of "Bad Religion"and "Along the Way". If these were the only tracks on the album, it'd still be worth every penny. This cd is very worth your money if you appreciate old punk rock and are interested in how Bad Religion got started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute best punk rock album, EVER. July 3 1998
Format:Audio CD
80-85 is loaded with classic BR tunes. Their lyrics are amazing.
As a sophomore in high school, some girl in my biology class introduced BR to me. She said, "you might not like their music, but their lyrics are amazing." So, I bought my first album - "Stranger Than Fiction." It's been 6 years and I now own ALL BR albums, including imports and a solo release ("American Lesion") composed by BR lead singer, Greg Graffin. BR is a disease. Friend by friend, I got everyone I know to listen to them.
Greg Graffin has played solo at my university. He played some song requests, despite that he was unprepared to play them. He's got a degree from Cornell University (Vertebrae Paleontology) and he's taught at UCLA. Smart dude.
I've been to 2 BR concerts, and I've seen them play at the "Warped Tour." Their live shows are awesome. All their fans know the lyrics each song.
If you like high energy, raw music ("your indecision is your....WHOOAAAH!...BAD RELIGION!), you NEED 80-85.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hardcore BR, Hardcore punk. July 28 2000
By Mike D
Format:Audio CD
28 songs in under an hour. You know what you're going to get with those kinds of numbers. This is the only Bad Religion CD I own. A lot of fans recommend this album to only hardcore BR fans. I recommend it to almost no one. Why should anyone listen? Going that fast, the songs must be unintelligible or angst-ridden at best. You need to listen to it again, and again, and then I hope you see why I give it 4 stars. What separates Bad Religion from a lot of other hardcore stuff is the melody they produce, even at such high speeds. And don't assume that the lyrics are merely the angry musings of disenfranchised youth. "Along the Way" is among the most inciteful things I've read. This is obviously a must-have for fans of hardcore, along with the Minor Threat's Complete Discography. Raw and aggressive in every aspect of its production, this is my favorite Bad Religion work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of A Great Band! Nov. 24 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Raw, high-energy, fast, catchy, politicaly driven and with a positive message. These are qualities that represent this band. This is a Classic. First hearing this album, I was completely amazed on good this band is. The beginning has fast, catchy songs and towards the end has a little bit of metal mixed in, but still worth the money.My favorites are "We're Only Gonna Die" "Latch Key Kids" and "Part 3".This one of Bad Religion greatest albums and punk's all time greatest. A 28 piece of heaven. The ulimate BR collection. To me, these guys are legends. I highly recommend this album to anyone BR fans or fan of classic punk rock. Punk was never the same when this album was came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic BR
This is the real stuff. I am a big BR fan and I wanted a look at their old stuff. And it's even better. The best song is Voice of God is Government, but I like them all.

It is like a time capsule. Almost all of Bad Religions early music is represented here (except for the much maligned Into the Unknown). Read more
