5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Satan? June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'd just like to point out that the Christian guy from "happyland" who gave this album one star and called it a work of Satan also published an Amazon guide in which he says Bad Religion is his favorite band of all-time (I guess Satan got to him that day, eh?!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classically Delicious June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is Bad Religion's best work from the earlier years, and still manages to retain its spot as one of the greatest punk rock albums of all-time. It's even better now that it's remastered.
MUST BUY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another BR Masterpiece June 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think this is the album where Bad Religion started to go off into their own realm instead of sticking with the same formula. They added even more melodicism and guitar work and the result was nothing short of phenomenal.
1. Modern Man 5/5- Excellent opening track, I did expect something a little more upbeat but this is nice for a change.
2. Turn of the Light- 5/5
3. Get Off 5/5 - One of my least favorite from the album, I don't know why, maybe it's the lyrics.
4. Blenderhead 5/5 - the ol' Bad Religion "we'll stop the song when we feel like it approach". But seriously this is just a classic and it is really hard to put into words just how great any of these songs are.
5. The Positive Aspect of Negative Thinking 5/5 - People have disputes over this song, some say it's the worst lyrics, and some say it has the best but others just don't like the non-orthodoxy of the song, I just love it.
6. Anesthesia 5/5 - A great song that is still played live today at almost every BR show.
7. Flat Earth Society 5/5
8. Faith Alone 5/5- Just a beautifully written song both lyrically and melodically it's a prize.
9. Entropy 5/5 - I don't like Greg Graffin's lyrics... in almost any song but this one is a little worse. But the song is good so I won't take any points off.
10. Against the Grain 5/5 - one of My favorites, but as per usually I hate the lyrics but the song is just so magesetically put together. Damn that guitar is great!
11. Operation Rescue 5/5 - good song.
12. God Song 5/5 - Best song on the album.
13. 21st Century (Digital Boy) 5/5 - BR Classic, please listen to this one before you listen to STF's version because that one is lame.
14. Misery and Famine 5/5 - Catchier than SARS.
15. Unacceptable 5/5
16. Quality or Quantity 4/5
17. Walk Away 5/5 - good song to end with.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ever Bad Religion albums March 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the very best Bad Religion albums - I'd put it just above Suffer and just below No Control. It's the point at which Bad Religion started aim for slower, more emotional music. And that's not a bad thing.
1. Modern Man 10/10 - great lyrics, great tune and a great song to start with.
2. Turn of the Light 9/10 - this is one of the more emotional songs on this album, but not on the scale of some of their later work.
3. Get Off 9/10 - great rhythm, great song.
4. Blenderhead 9/10 - one of the best songs on the album, but it ends suddenly which sounds a bit wierd.
5. The Positive Aspect of Negative Thinking 6/10 - Jay Bentley's attempt at writing a song. This has the best title and possibly the best lyrics of any BR song, but the wierd change of key at the end completely lets the song down.
6. Anesthesia 10/10 - one of my all time favourites. Bad Religion prove that they can write a decent emotional song without sounding like No Substance.
7. Flat Earth Society 10/10 - I love this song! Great chorus!
8. Faith Alone 8/10 - for some reason I could never really get to love this song as much as the others. It's still pretty good though.
9. Entropy 10/10 - great tune, great lyrics, great song.
10. Against the Grain 10/10 - one of Bad Religion's masterpieces, and a worthy song to name the album after.
11. Operation Rescue 9/10 - good song.
12. God Song 10/10 - begins with words from an ancient hymn, except that 'England' is now 'America'. Great guitar as well.
13. 21st Century (Digital Boy) 10/10 - my favourite BR song of all time. The original is a lot better than the 'remaking' of it on 'Stranger than Fiction'.
14. Misery and Famine 10/10 - amazing lyrics.
15. Unacceptable 7/10 - average BR song (which still means that it's better than 99% of music nowadays).
16. Quality or Quantity 9/10 - good song.
17. Walk Away 9/10 - good song to end with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suffer but for a larger audience. Feb. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Bad Religion is an awesome band. I can not say this enough. From their classic Suffer to their under-apreciated Recipe for Hate. After their short but great No Control, Bad Religion released Against the Grain.
This album is so amazing. It combines the speed of Suffer with the emotional and melodic aspects of later albums like Recipe for Hate and Stranger than Fiction. The blending of Greg Gaffin's thounderous and haunting vocals and Greg Hetson and Brett Gurwitz insane guitar work, this is probably the most different Bad Religion disc around. Tracks like "Anesthesia", "Faith Alone", and the classic "21st Century Digital Boy" give a more emotional and deep side of Bad Religion. It also has the fast tracks of their other albums like "Modern Man", "Turn on Your Light", "Operation Rescue", and "Walk Away". This is one of the most interesting punk records ever released and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars BR's zenith, in one man's humble opinion Jan. 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the reasons I ended up going to college for philosophy. Take that as you will.
If you are looking for an introduction to Bad religion you could do no better. If you are looking for an intro to punk in general, be warned- this will spoil you. It's just too good.
This is the album that got me into punk, the one that showed me what the medium could do, how thoughtful and acerbic it could be. Behold- This one is a band-launcher. Such thematic diversity and rhythmic variety, propulsive and tight, such ferocity...
I don't care much for BR's work post- Stranger Than Fiction (though Process was a nice surprise), but thanks to this and Suffer they can do no wrong in my eyes.
Modern man, Entropy (the only song I bet to ever mention Ludwig Boltzmann), faith Alone, walk Away, Misery and Famine, 21st Century Digital Boy, the sweet-arena rock drums that close out Anesthesia... There are NO Sleeper tracks.
PS I learned more vocab by sitting around reading BR's lyric sheets with a dictionary than I ever did in any English or SAT-prep class. So adventurous home-schoolers take-note!!!! The opening lyrics of 'Positive Aspect of Negative Thinking,' for example...
"Let's gather 'round the carcass of the old deflated beast,
we've seen it through its accolades and rested in its lea
syntactic is our elegance, incisive our disease,
the swaths endogenous of ourselves will be our quandary..."
si jadis me souviens...
PS thank you, Josh Locker, for turning me on to this, all those years ago... If you're out there...
