This album was the first Bad Religion CD I bought, and it remains perhaps my favourite to this day. It certainly contains several excellent songs, most notably 'Tiny Voices', 'Better Off Dead', 'Marked', 'Inner Logic' and the best version of 'Digital Boy', not to mention the deftly written title track.
I find 'Stranger Than Fiction' represents a middle ground between the saw-edged and caustic approach of 'Recipe For Hate' and 'Generator' on one hand, and the less angry but more mature musicianship of 'The Grey Race' and 'No Substance' on the other. This album is the point of balance between the two, and is all the better for it, incorporating the strengths of both of the aforementioned varieties of BR.
Accessible to newcomers and an enduring bastion of quality for established fans, 'Stranger Than Fiction' is one of the high points of Bad Religion's career, in this reviewer's opinion.
