5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Religion does it again! Aug. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is slower, darker, more melodic, etc, that any previous record by them except maybe INTO THE UNKNOWN, but that's a different story. This album is beautifully constructed and it just might be my favorite record of theirs. It's almost a concept album of sorts, it came out at a time when there was a lot of change happening in the world, and with the Gulf War and widespread, overindulged, mindless patriotism was taking over the USA, and Greg G was quoted as saying something like he felt like moving out of the country because of how ashamed he was at the people living there. Anyway, the emotions of the time are definately evident in this one of a kind record, just listen for yourself. Also Bobby Schayer takes over at drums, that is another plus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best from an underrated band.... Aug. 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bad Religion is one of those band that as I get older, I am rarely in the mood to listen to anymore. What was truly special for me at 16 isn't the same at 24 but good music is what it is and every once and awhile I stil love this stuff. I give it 4 stars because it really hits the spot when I wan't it to, not because it recieves regular rotation in my CD player. This is the first of what I dubbed the "golden four" of Bad Religion. 4 successive albums (Generator, Recipe For Hate, Stranger Than Fiction, and The Grey Race) that found Bad Religion at their best. I prefer the more melodic chorus oriented stuff of the second half of their career versus the harder more Punk offerings from their earlier albums. Bad Relgion isn't for everyone and I haven't heard any of their later stuff although I hear its stil quality.
Generator is the usual mix of edgy riffs, 3 minutes songs and preachy but very singable lyrics. The highlights include 2 Babies In the Dark, and Fertile Crescent although pretty much all the songs are good which is great quality about most the good Bad Religion albums.
Bottom Line: People unfamiliar with Bad Religion can start here or with Stranger Than Fiction. Fans of Sum 41 or the White Stripes might like this band.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little slower, but still great! June 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the two gargantuan, fast paced albums "Suffer" and "No Control", Bad Religion released their third album, "Against the Grain". It was just as good, if not better than those 2, but most noticed it was a little slower in pace than those two. After that album came "Generator", arguably their slowest album to date.
However, slower doesn't mean worse, it just means different. While not their best album, it features some of their most infectious and addictive melodies ever through great songs like "Too Much To Ask", "Tomorrow", and "Only Entertainment".
"Generator" - 10/10 - One of the faster songs on the album. Very catchy and definitely one of their best.
"Too Much To Ask" - 10/10 - My personal favorite song by BR. The chorus is fast, very claustrophobic in the deep urgency in Greg's voice as he tries to push off as many lyrics as he can.
"No Direction" - 8/10 - This is where the album begins to slow down. It has a great message about how we follow on society's set path, but eventually we figure out that this beaten path is can't tell you everything and that you have to be your own person, that no one can truly make your thoughts but yourself, not even Bad Religion can do that.
"Tomorrow" - 10/10 - Another rather fast song, very catchy. The guitars are great, the harmony is excellent as well.
"Two Babies in the Dark" - 9/10 - A great slow song. Greg's voice is very soothing and it is quite different from your standard BR song.
"Heaven is Falling" - 9/10 - A well executed song. However, it is just your typical BR song.
"Atomic Garden" - 11/10 - So catchy it hurts. Almost completely drum driven. The guitars in this song are very unique and different from the standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album overall June 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to Bad Religion albums, everyone has their own idea of what the best album is. Most people tend to like their earliest stuff, and these tend to be those who have been long-time fans from the beginning. Not many at all prefer most of their latest stuff, perhaps mainly because the band was not "whole" at times (I think the band needs both Brett and Greg to achieve their best potential).
This album marked a kind of transition for the band, and falls in between. Although they have always been great lyricists, on this album they tone down the freneticism of their music so that the lyrics can take center stage. And they couldn't have done it at a better time, given that the most poetic lyrics they have ever written appear on this album. Even with this, the music doesn't suffer but takes on a new quality that I actually prefer to their older stuff.
The best song ever written by Bad Religion is on this album, and it is the title track "Generator." This is the most beautiful punk poem ever written about God... and it is an intensely personal account. With all of their screaming in the past about questioning everything and not believing in anything, this song reveals a desire to believe in something... perhaps that there really is a foundation to our existence, although we can't see it directly. As an agnostic philosopher myself, I can relate to every word in these lyrics... whether or not you can convince yourself to believe in anything through reason, there is always the desire and the emotion that is often-times impossible to ignore.
Another great song is "The Answer," perhaps their most honest and straightforward presentation of their attitude and life philosophy. It also closely matches my own thinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great old cd...again
I'm a relatively new BR fan, so I didn't have the original release of 'Generator'. I picked this up the other day, though, and it was really worth it. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not the best by Bad Religion, but my personal favorite
One of the things I have learned about Bad Religion is that while their fans might love a half dozen or so of their albums, no one album stands are most admirers' favorite. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Very different, but one hell of a CD
If this was my first BR album, I probably wouldn't have thought much of it. But having purchased all of their CD's, this one and Recipe for Hate stand out head and shoulders above... Read more

Bad Religion is such an amazing band on many different levels: intellectual, musical, scientific, that it seems almost a shame to classify them as punk rock. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Religion's darkest hour
From the shadowy front cover artwork, to the enigmatic band photos in the liner notes, this album's packaging hints at a dark, grim album. Read more
