5.0 out of 5 stars business as usual.., 25 Jan 2013
By 
This review is from: True North (Audio CD)
As with any BR album you need to listen to it a few times to get into their pace. This album is just as strong as all of them, there is only one song I don't like so much 'hello cruel world' the rest is melodic fast pace brilliance,with great lyrics.
This album probably appeals more to older bad religion fans, However i did love previous outputs, especially the slower songs, whereas this record only has one. I bought the LP version which gives you the cd for free as well, so for all your hardcore diehearts, get the vinyl (for in your livingroom) and the cd full blast in the car!
All in all Dr. Greg and co never seem to fail! another superb album!!

16 albums. Thats a heck of a back catalogue.

After 33 years and 16 studio albums (Not including live albums and compilations) you would expect a band to be losing its edge over the years, expect a band to be slowing down, perhaps ready for a peaceful retirement and yet... what we have here... is an album of undeniable quality.

From the off, True North is an instant Bad Religion classic. Punching out a remarkably similar introduction riff (Leave Mine to Me springs to mind from 1994 album Stranger than Fiction) the song springs into life delivering the message of discovery that continues through to the albums end with Changing Tide.

What must be said straight away is that this album, is the standard affair for any Bad Religion fan. Casual listeners may not notice the shift in change from previous album, 2010's The Dissent of Man, but for their true fans (And there is a legion of them) this is almost a new dawn. The lyrics are strong, come out fighting lines 'Lets say we try to get this right/said the plutocrat to Jesus Christ', that resemble some of the bands best work.

The guitar work and brilliant burst of solo on The Land of Endless Greed is a joy, as is the fist pumping Nothing to Dismay which took this reviewer right back to the mosh pits of the nineties. The bands first single, track five (Which shall remain nameless) is a folk song in all but pace whereas with Vanity, they have recorded the fastest song the band has ever done.

This album is a testament to 33 years of punk rock dedication that will take a long time to beat. Whereas bands like Offspring, Greenday and Blink 182 are churning out the pop-punk; Bad Religion are still raising the bar, bringing out regular punk albums, steeped in intellectual lyrics and sensational drum work.

Bad Religion can do no wrong in the eyes of their fans, and yet they still release brilliant albums rather than resting on their previous work. 33 years of albums... lets hope for at least another 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of the vinyl edition, 9 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: True North [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I'm not reviewing the music - others have done this. Sonically - it sounds fantastic, like a pop/punk/rock record should. Note that it is not a 2lp copy but a single disc (at 35 minutes it doesn't need two discs anyhow). However, it does come with a cd copy of the album, is a reassuring 180g, and an inner sleeve with the lyrics to sing along.

Unlike other vinyl releases, you are not being robbed with regards to cost, so add it to your collection.

Bad religion go back to their early work. This has fast, frenetic tunes, as well as slower more thoughtful ones. A well balanced album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true band., 29 Mar 2013

You can't go wrong with BR. A band that has consistently released records for over 30 years, and most of them high quality material. This record is a little bit more raw than the previous. It has a certain Stranger than Fiction feel, but a few songs have a more updated vibe and some sounds we're not used to, not a bad thing.
Not their best album, but one worth having, and very interesting as to new types of music arrangements, heartwarming as to their lyrics and old school BR songwriting.
Go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic BR, 27 Mar 2013

This really has a No Control? Suffer feel. Fast, concise, tight and with that real old Bad Religion balance between dynamics and pure energy.
Mr. Brett throws in his typical slower/ darker couple of songs but doesn't push formula too far like he did on Dissent of Man and Wackerman's drumming is right back up after a very slight lull on the last album.
BR definitely still have it.
