I'm new to Bad Religion, the only times I've heard their songs were in the game Crazy Taxi. Sad, I know. But after reading the reviews about The Gray Race, I figured this would be a good place to start since it seems to be the one that most "true fans" diss. Man oh man am I glad I picked this up.
The Gray Race is unlike any other punk album I've heard. All the lyrics are actually meaningful, and the music matches them flawlessly. Why can't more bands be like Bad Religion? Instead, all we get these days are little "nobody understand me. I am alone" bands like Staind and "angry" bands like stupid Korn and Slipknot. People must be really stupid to not recognize Bad Religion as one of the best bands that were around in the 80's and 90's.
Tracks that stand out the most to me are:
-The Gray Race (what a way to start off the album)
-Them and Us
-Parallel
-Nobody Listens
-Pity the Dead
-Ten in 2010
-Come Join Us
My only complaint is that the songs are too short. The longest one is a little over 3 minutes. Oh well, at least the tracks don't drag on. This is the kind of album you can listen to over and over again. If this is considered their "worst", I can only imagine how great their others are. So with that in mind, I'll be going for those very soon. But The Gray Race is still awesome, as it kicks Ewok-ass.

I'm a huge Bad Religion fan and I love the fact that they are maturing and always evolving. I understand that Bad Religion did not make their best music in 1988 or 1989 and anyone who think that is an idiot. But this album is definately a career low for the band, to me anyway. I just don't think Greg was used to being in control, and plus I think Ric Ocasek might have something to do with it. Anyway, that being said, the album is a must have for any die-hard Bad Religion fan, but I don't recommend it for anyone trying to get into them.
1. The Gray Race (10/10) excellent start to the album.
2. Them And Us (7/10) used on the Video Game Crazy Taxi I think
3. A Walk (6/10) This one is played at Anaheim Angel's games
4. Parallel (6/10)
5. Punk Rock Song (9/10) Melodic, catchy and the lyrics are great.
6. Empty Causes (8/10)
7. Nobody Listens (8/10)
8. Pity The Dead (10/10) Quite possibly the strongest of the album, it's a great song.
9. Spirit Shine (6/10)
10. The Streets Of America (8/10) Kind of a repetitive riff.
11. Ten In 2010 (8/10) Also on Crazy Taxi
12. Victory (7/10)
13. Drunk Sincerity (10/10) One of my favorite's by the band.
14. Come Join Us 10/10)
15. Cease (10/10)

Let me begin by saying that I've been a Bad Religion fan since Recipe For Hate. My friend introduced me to them right after I graduated from high school. I had never listened to much punk rock prior to the album but I thought Recipe For Hate was just an incredible CD. I became hooked on Bad Religion. I started buying some of BR's older material and was blown away by Suffer and Against The Grain. I've been following BR ever since.
I am a big fan of Bad Religion's older material but I must say that this album, The Gray Race, is now my favorite. The Gray Race is a very upbeat CD, even more so than the majority of Stranger Than Fiction (which is also a great album!). It's produced very well and has a much cleaner sound than the past albums, yet it still seems to me to have much of the intensity of BR's older albums. Every song is cool. It just rocks!
I don't understand why so many people are down on Bad Religion since the departure of Brett. The music hasn't changed very much, although I must say that I was slightly dissappointed with The New Amerca and No Substance. I think all Bad Religion's albums are very good. Greg Graffin is a superb songwriter and he makes his points in everything he writes while keeping the music interesting to listen to. Don't knock BR just because Brett left and doesn't write their music anymore. Remember, Greg did, after all, write many of BR's older song by himself and he wrote some excellent songs then too.
Either way...new stuff...old stuff... I recommend The Gray Race and Suffer if you wanna hear great Bad Religion albums. But don't get me wrong...they're all good.

Some yime ago I was lucky enough to see the Ramones play on their Adios Amigos Tour. It was in this set that I realized, temporarily at least, that punk rock is ageless. A fifty year old Joey Ramone, with all the fury and fire he brought to CBGBs on day one, shook listeners and provided proof that punk lives in the soul.
Then good old Greg Graffin ruined it all.
..... And the continuous downward spiral which began on the Generator album proceeds as planned. Anyone who possibly compares the musical integrity and song writing of the newer Bad Religion albums to the days of Suffer and No Control should be banished to Green Day Hell where they will have to endure endless concerts, one after the next after the next, of horrible bubblegum punk rock, the ranks of which Bad Religion has invaded. Lest we forget, the mighty and proud Greg Graffin et. al. (dragging along an old member of the legendary Minor Threat) OPENED for Blink 182 on a not-so-distant touring stint.
I cannot put into words how bad this album really is, and the only solace I can muster is to realie that no one expected it to be any good. This is a new Bad Religion, one evolved, not unlike their 21st century digital boy, from a classic and now takes its place along side the meaninglessness and malaise brought about by cheese-ball lyrics and pop-rock musicianship.
....... though I've heard they're a huge hit on alterna-radio! ugh. give me a break. As a fan of BR when they were a true punk band the only advice I can give is to buy Suffer and No Control, listen to them as they are two milestone albums and leave the new Bad Religion to the Don Henley fans who are looking for something a little different.
