First off: While "How Can Hell" has never been out of print (see "80-85") it is great to have it back with its original title & cover. This is one of my favorite US hardcore LPs. NOW- why can't we see a CD re release of their second LP "Into the Unknown"? Sure, at the time, fans hated it and dismissed it as a "sell out" (which was typical of punk bands in the early 80s- look at the Red Rockers). And, yes, this heavy new wave arena rock (for want of a better discription) sounds nothing like the rest of the BA catalog before or since. But, that-was-then-this-is-now: why not let the current generation of BA fans hear it and make up their own minds. As an owner of one of the original vinyl pressings I can say "Unknown" has gotten better with age and features some of their best stuff: "Billy Gnosis", "million days", "wild goose" and "it's only over when you give up".
As of this writing there's a guy on Ebay letting his "Unknown" LP go for $165 starting bid! I've seen it on Ebay for as much as $300! (Not to mention several bootleg CD-Rs of this album.) Not to deminish the greatness of "Suffer" or "Generator" but Gregg & Co. should be convinced to let their current audience decide- at least with a "limmited edition" CD of "Into the Unknown". (At the time of "Unknown's" 1983 release BA contributed two great "unplugged" tracks to the "Sound of Hollywood" comp: "waiting for the fire" and "everyday". Those would make great bonus tracks.) 21 years later it's time for Bad Religion to STOP apologising for this record- not to mention, STOP the self-censorship!
