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.
