    This just might be their best work in 25 years. [Jan 2013, p.92]

    When stripped back to basics the Brains are as brilliantly brutal as ever. [Dec 2012, p.88]

    It's best to sit back and let the power of visionary punk rock wash over you.

    Although this may not be the band's greatest work, at least it's not a parody of what was. Soak that Positive Mental Attitude up.

    The midtempo grunge-metal and reggae jams, more sustainable channels for grown-ass anger, feel most like home.

    True, some of the reggae songs a re a bit lightweight, but on the punk numbers, Bad Brains' righteous fevour remains undimmed. [24 Nov 2012, p.53]

    These sky-surfing legends may have another great album in 'em yet, but for all its intermittently irie moments, Into the Future isn't it.

    If you wanna hear old bad brains go do that. this is an unforgiving new brand, still as shredtastically brutal as before, but a little bit older, more mature, more smart. just as political, just as fun, just as badass. freakin awesome. Collapse
