Apparently many people can't stand to see a band mature, even when they age with the utmost grace. Bad Religion, far and away the best band on the planet, put out another incredible cd with "New America." If you are a true BR fan and liked their cds before this one, you will definitely like this one. Just because every song isn't a minute and a half long with lightning-quick vocals and guitar, doesn't mean that it's bad. Yes, some songs even break the 3 minute mark. This and "No Substance" are probably the slowest BR albums, but slow doesn't mean bad. Bad Religion has always exemplified strong/intelligent lyrics and great melodies that you sing along to every time you put on the cd. Just listening to Bad Religion improves your vocabulary and probably makes you smarter. Greg Graffin has proved since "The Grey Race" that he can write amazing songs without the help of Mr. Brett. While they create amazing music together and really feed off of each other, BR didn't lose a step on their 3 Brett-less cds. "Don't Sell Me Short" and "A Streetkid named Desire" will blow you away. Buy this now.

First things first: I haven't been a bad religion fan for very long, but i do have plenty of their cds, 8 in all. This is one of my most recent. To sum it up: it's definately different thatn like their older stuff, before Atlantic Records came along. If you are a big fan of their older stuff like No Control and Against the Grain, this will probably make you gag. The songs are a lot slower on this (as a whole) and a lot more melodic. The Wa-oh's and those oozin ahhs are definately worked to death and get annoying after awhile, you start to wonder how come Greg just didn't put a few more lyrics in there instead of saying WHOA! at the end of every line.
There are some good songs on the CD. You've got a Chance is a good opener, but the last minute is just repeated wa-ohs, and after one time through you'll wanna end the song early. It's a Long Way to the Promise Land, World Without Melody, and New America are all very poppy and slower, you may or may not like them depending on what other bands you listen to. 1000 Memories... well, the guitars are GREAT!, but the lyrics suck, Greg obviously has some girl problems which he doesn't usually sing about, I'm more used to him singing about society. The rest of the songs are forgettable, except for the closing track Don't Sell Me Short, it is perhaps my favorite song, it reminds me of old Bad Religion. All you BR faithful out there, don't worry, cause their new Cd Process of Belief is AMAZING! It is perhaps their best cd of all time, Brett is back full time, and they're back on Epitaph.
All in all, not a particularly bad album, but definately not a must-have.

With the 2000 release of The New America, Bad Religion show that they are still one of the best and most time-proven bands in punk-rock. Bad Religion always strive to be up-to-date, and they succeed, they do not end up like other bands, old men trying to act young and angry. Bad Religion matured, and as they did, so did their music. Off course The New America is very much different from what they did in the 80's and it SHOULD be, Bad Religion is evolving, both intelectualy and musicaly.
They never sell out of their artistic or ethical values, but rather strive to reach new and higher levels, and they succeed with The New America.
The album is filled with meaningful songs right from the optimistic You've Got a Chance and to the silent Whisper in Time and to the closing statement Don't Sell Me Short. I think that Bad Religion still show us the creativity and the drive that was present on their earlier releases, so I really don't understand what the commotion is about from disgruntled fans.

There are a few certainties in life death, taxes and Bad Religion. Since the early '80s, they've led the charge with inspired lyrics and fast, punchy music. They have a pile of albums under their belt, and they've done it all in the world of punk rock. So how are they carrying on in the year 2000 with their latest, The New America? Surprisingly well. The album was recorded in Hawaii of all places, by '70s rock icon Todd Rundgren of all people. Rundgren's production is a change from past BR works, but it sounds great. It's similar to the heavy production on Blink-182's Enema of the State, with lots of echo on the vocals and instruments. Musically, it's very similar to the band's last album, No Substance. Except, there's a few very melodic, poppy elements to a few songs here to keep things interesting. Greg Graffin is still going strong as the creative driving force behind the group. His vocals get a little smoother and clearer with each album.
Jay Bentley's basslines stay pretty straightforward here, although he does some nice riffs when needed. Brian Baker and Greg Hetson, two punk rock veterans on guitar, trade off on lead parts which have never sounded better on a BR album. Really. Also, Bobby Schayer seems to be playing with more energy here on drums than in the recent past. You've Got A Chance is the first song, and it's one of the better ones. It's got the classic minor key verse with a quick beat, but the chorus switches to a really melodic, slower part. The song's lyrics look at American society today in a very intelligent way, good job by Graffin. The second song has one of those long titles It's A Long Way To The Promise Land. It's got some interesting effects by Rundgren, and even a synthesized drumbeat for part of a verse (I'm not kidding).
