However, slower doesn't mean worse, it just means different. While not their best album, it features some of their most infectious and addictive melodies ever through great songs like "Too Much To Ask", "Tomorrow", and "Only Entertainment".
"Generator" - 10/10 - One of the faster songs on the album. Very catchy and definitely one of their best.
"Too Much To Ask" - 10/10 - My personal favorite song by BR. The chorus is fast, very claustrophobic in the deep urgency in Greg's voice as he tries to push off as many lyrics as he can.
"No Direction" - 8/10 - This is where the album begins to slow down. It has a great message about how we follow on society's set path, but eventually we figure out that this beaten path is can't tell you everything and that you have to be your own person, that no one can truly make your thoughts but yourself, not even Bad Religion can do that.
"Tomorrow" - 10/10 - Another rather fast song, very catchy. The guitars are great, the harmony is excellent as well.
"Two Babies in the Dark" - 9/10 - A great slow song. Greg's voice is very soothing and it is quite different from your standard BR song.
"Heaven is Falling" - 9/10 - A well executed song. However, it is just your typical BR song.
"Atomic Garden" - 11/10 - So catchy it hurts. Almost completely drum driven. The guitars in this song are very unique and different from the standard.Read more ›
This album marked a kind of transition for the band, and falls in between. Although they have always been great lyricists, on this album they tone down the freneticism of their music so that the lyrics can take center stage. And they couldn't have done it at a better time, given that the most poetic lyrics they have ever written appear on this album. Even with this, the music doesn't suffer but takes on a new quality that I actually prefer to their older stuff.
The best song ever written by Bad Religion is on this album, and it is the title track "Generator." This is the most beautiful punk poem ever written about God... and it is an intensely personal account. With all of their screaming in the past about questioning everything and not believing in anything, this song reveals a desire to believe in something... perhaps that there really is a foundation to our existence, although we can't see it directly. As an agnostic philosopher myself, I can relate to every word in these lyrics... whether or not you can convince yourself to believe in anything through reason, there is always the desire and the emotion that is often-times impossible to ignore.
Another great song is "The Answer," perhaps their most honest and straightforward presentation of their attitude and life philosophy. It also closely matches my own thinking.Read more ›

I'm a relatively new BR fan, so I didn't have the original release of 'Generator'. I picked this up the other day, though, and it was really worth it. Read morePublished on May 27 2004 by Billy McMonagle
This album is slower, darker, more melodic, etc, that any previous record by them except maybe INTO THE UNKNOWN, but that's a different story. Read morePublished on Aug. 3 2003 by hamilton
Bad Religion is one of those band that as I get older, I am rarely in the mood to listen to anymore. Read morePublished on Aug. 1 2003 by Surface to Air Missle
One of the things I have learned about Bad Religion is that while their fans might love a half dozen or so of their albums, no one album stands are most admirers' favorite. Read morePublished on Jan. 29 2003 by Robert Moore

If this was my first BR album, I probably wouldn't have thought much of it. But having purchased all of their CD's, this one and Recipe for Hate stand out head and shoulders above... Read morePublished on Aug. 24 2002 by David Greenwood
Bad Religion is such an amazing band on many different levels: intellectual, musical, scientific, that it seems almost a shame to classify them as punk rock. Read morePublished on June 24 2002

Bad Religion did a great job with this album. People say there is always ups and downs-well this album was written without downs. The entire album is great. Read morePublished on Oct. 17 2001
