Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Process of Belief finds Bad Religion returning to their roots in two important aspects. First, original guitarist Brett Gurewitz has rejoined the ranks, bringing with him the taut songwriting skills that made Bad Religion hardcore pioneers in the mid-1980s. Secondly, the band has returned to Gurewitz's successful indie imprint Epitaph after years on a major. The result is an album that captures the clean joy and vigor of melodic hardcore without sacrificing its moral core. Songs like "Supersonic" and "Prove It" are fast, catchy, and irresistible examples of the kind of prime ADD punk that's over before you know it. But the likes of "Materialist" and "Kyoto Now" find Bad Religion at their best. Greg Graffin sings at one point that "you might not think that there's any wisdom in a f***ed up punk rock song," but his rants against global pollution, ambition, and family politics prove otherwise. There are a few surprises as well--"Broken" is almost an acoustic chart anthem while "Bored and Extremely Dangerous" could be a Sebadoh song. In all, The Process of Belief is confirmation that you don't need big shorts and a low IQ to make a prime-grade punk rock album. --Ian Watson

Seeing as I was just starting grade school when they came out, I should first thank my ever-so-wise father for turning me on to BR. The first CD I ever owned was No Control. Many teachers seemed to find it disturbing that a 4th graded was belting out "I Want To Conquer The World" on the playground.
With the release of "Process of Belief", the band has my renewed apreciation. It also has me dusting off my older BR CDs and rocking out to them nonstop. I'm glad to see them once again pioneering the punk rock scene, and even blowing away the newcomers. I'd also like to note that as good as this and their older albums are, Bad Religion is one of those bands that is 50 times better in concert.
Oh, and as for the moron who said they were ripping off Good Charlotte, sure... They were just sitting around one day watching MTV & taking notes. Then they got in their friggin time machine and went back twenty years. That's exactlly what happened.
If you are a fan of Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Sum 41 or the like, then pick up a copy of this CD, "No Control", "Suffer", or any one of their older CD's. This will show you where it all started. Not to mention the fact that it will get you listening to better music.

Look no further, this is Bad Religion's masterpiece. If you like "The Empire Strikes First" youll love this even more. They tapped into their roots but still kept a progressive sound to their music from the major label days.
1. Supersonic (5/5) - Blazing punk glory, catchy and good lyrics
2. Prove It (5/5) - Same
3. Cant Stop (5/5) - Same again
4. Broken (5/5) - Great new sounding Bad Religion song, its got an acoustic guitar and it was on the radio.
5. Destined For Nothing (3/5) - Good but not great
6. Materialist (3/5) - Also good but not great
7. Kyoto Now (5/5) - Great political punkrock song
8. Sorrow (5/5) - A classic, a perfect and catchy punkrock song
9. Epiphany (5/5) - Almost sounds like a Red Hot Chili Peppers Song at first, great alternative/rock song.
10. Evangaline (5/5) - really catchy punk song
11. The Defense (5/5) - Great alternative rock song here too
12. The Lie (4/5) - Good just not one of the better ones
13. You Dont Belong (5/5) - A little slower and different, a great song tho.
14. Bored And Extremely Dangerous (4/5) - Good but not the best
Conclusion: Ive had this CD for 2 years and i still listen to it all the time! Its awesome any fan of punk or rock should pick it up!
Very best songs:
Sorrow
Kyoto Now
the Defense
Broken
Epiphany

Format:Audio CD
is refreshing listen this cd, after the new america, and no substance, is a good change,the rejoining of Brett Gurewitz and the new drummer injected bad religion a speed , and changes that i cannot see in the last 3 records. Brett is for me is best composer(Sorrow)that Greg Graffin, he have a great style.Greg is more melodic.Good cd my favorites, Sorrow , the best song in a lot of years,Supersonic,Kyoto Now,and the last of the cd for me is a rare good song,but in general all the cd is good and the insert is very good too,a lot of Greg Graffin hand .
I have the new album i listen all the cd is very good , awesome, the angeles is burning is a so so song, it have a 5 or 6 first songs very fast, the overture is great,and sinister rouge is like supersonic very fast and good, Love again...the last song is beautiful , in this cd Greg Graffin work more in the changes of his voice and explore similar styles in the slow songs ,very similar of his solo proyect, but more fast and strong,very good cd 4 stars for this too, this cd is in internet a few of weeks, very difficult of find.

As a fan of not only Bad Relgion's earlier material, but also a fan of the post-Brett Gurewitz material, I have to say that Bad Relgion never really left. Yeah, the material after Gurewitz left wasn't as consistent (see Recipe For Hate and The New America,) but they also had some really great stuff including what is possibly my favorite Bad Religion album, "No Substance." So, in this state of mind, I have to say that The Process of Belief is not a return to form, it's just another great Bad Religion album which also marks the return of co-founder and co-songwriter Brett Gurewitz. "Kyoto Now!," "Sorrow," and "The Defense" are three of the most well-written and inspiring Bad Relgion songs ever proving once again that sweet melodies will conquer useless screaming any time. The only real weak spots on the album are at the very end. "You Don't Belong" and "Bored and Extremely Dangerous" are not bad songs, they're just not that memorable. All in all, this is a great peice of punk music, just as all Bad Relgion albums are. However, if you're in doubt about buying this album, wait until June 8th when their new album, The Empire Strikes First, is released because I'm sure that IT will be the ultimate Bad Religion album.

Jaw is on the floor after this one. Wow. I have always taken Bad Religion to heart. Being one of the few bands that survived the hardcore days of the eighties, Bad Religion never became "sell outs" or anything of that nature, but rather their music evolved. Graffin's songs and lyrics have been performed with a new passion and emotion that really just lights a fire inside of me (incredibly cliche, yes). Each song from Bad Religion has never lacked some meaning that anybody could (and should) take to heart. Now, I began to think they lost it a little with New America (my least favorite BR album), but regained it all and with avengence with "The Process of Belief".
This record really succeeded in bringing a feeling of overwhelming guilt over me, and should for most of society. Their comment's about society, religion, perserverence and defiance sunk in like a dagger. And my heart is still bleeding.
As far as how this album sounds: their sound is very refined for a punk band, and the melodic vocals really add to the meaning of the songs. The album starts fast, and continues with a biting pace for their first songs, and slows in the middle. But their meaning never escapes. Brilliant album. For fans of punk and casual listeners alike.
Off topic: The Bad Religion/Good Charlotte debate is pointless. Yet another rift in the generation gap widens. Younger listeners who dismiss Bad Religion as being too old to be good are the most ignorant listeners in the world, and really only follow popular radio tunes, rather than looking to any kind of music for inspiration. Paradoxically, if someone wants to listen to Blink or Charlotte then by all means go ahead. It is just a shame to dismiss Bad Religion.
