5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a domestic release March 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Well I have every Bad Relegion cd and i have to say this is a must have. I bought All Ages because it has tons of great songs from back when and its kind of a "greatest hits" cd,but i would have to say this is way better, and it should have been a major release not just an import. All the songs on this ablbum are great and the live songs sound amazing.If your a big BR fan pick this up, a little pricy but worth it! This album is also good for new fans aswell.
oh, also check out The Process of belief.

3.0 out of 5 stars Music gets a 5, package gets a 3. Feb. 9 2007
By Killjoy
Format:Audio CD
This cd has a lot of good tracks, including some hard to find versions (the live tack with Biohazard is worth hearing twice), but the packaging could have been much better. First off, this is one of Sony`s copy protected cds which don`t play on computers, so unless you know a way around it, you can`t make mp3s of it. My copy has a handy insert (only in German) which explains this nicely (if you speak German). Second, there are no liner notes, lyrics, comments or anything in the booklet; just the back cover pictures of the cds the songs came from. In other words, the whole package stinks of cash grab.

Those are my only complaints about this release. If you don`t mind these faults, then the music is highly recomended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection April 28 2003
By M. Otake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Have to say I was a little surprised to read above that the CD won't work in a PC, as I'm listening to it on my computer right now. Just picked up the CD on a recent trip to Japan and it, like all other Bad Religion CDs, rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you can't hear the quality, you're deaf. March 27 2003
By Random Ness - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
... I cannot see why any bad religion fan can discount the 'No Substance' album, unless they happen to be the type who thinks Bad Religion is the end-all-be-all and smell the resentment of this very behavior that permeates the album. Similarly, the No Substance tracks are attacked for this reason. The only problem I have with the album 'Punk Rock Songs' is the inclusion of Digital Boy, as after hearing the song some 40+ thousand times, and having way too many people tell me, "Bad Religion? Don't they do that 'digital boy' song?" Yeah, really, that's enough to make anyone sick of a song. To continue my point from above, Gray Race, an album attacking a homogenization of the human race, bothers some people with it's harsh interpretation of a possibly bleak future. New America, while it may not have been the strongest of Bad Religion albums, is still a great album, though it did tarnish slightly in the light of No Substance before it, at least for those who understand what the album is really saying... While Brett Gurewitz is a great musician, his songs tend to have a more poppy, superficial feel (see Digital Boy, Stranger than Fiction, Walk Away, Atomic Garden, to name a few) against Graffin's more emotional, sometimes deeper songs, i.e. A Walk, Infected, Cease, and The Answer. If you want to contrast the two writing styles once and for all, listen to I want to conquer the world, versus Fsck Armageddon... This is Hell. Two very similar songs with two very different writing styles. I'm not saying that Mr. Brett's style is any worse than Greg's, but there are differences that divide the populous of Bad Religion fans into three distinct groups.
The hardcore old-school pro-graffins*, the new-school just-found-bad-religion pro-gurewitz's, and the ones that straddle the line.
* - This isn't to say that all of the older bad religion fans prefer graffin over gurewitz, and vice versa, but this is my personal experience, and there are many exceptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars 65 Minutes of compilation. April 29 2006
By Mage Brmarlin, Pixelante - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Its a great CD, but its also ironic. The ironic part is that its called "The Epic Years" but many of the songs are from when the band had lost Brett Gruewitz.

If you're a collector, you'll probably pick it up for some of the rarer tracks, but this can be a good album to get early on for new fans if they have heard No Substance and such.

2.0 out of 5 stars German Warning: not playable on PCs or Macs! July 31 2009
By B. Crafa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There's no mention of this in the description or by amazon (or its sellers), so I was really peeved when I couldn't play (or rip) the CD on my PC. That said, it's just a so-so collection, since BR were/are on Epitaph before and after these out-of-sequence Epic tracks; many of their best singles are absent (Recipe for Hate, Process of Belief, The Empire Strikes First, & New Maps of Hell), and even great songs from "The Epic Years" like Parallel were omitted. The live tracks' quality is predictably poor, though the 'session' ones are passable. At least I know which MP3s I need to buy, cuz this is useless as anything but a stereo-limited, incomplete greatest hits attempt.
