    This is definitely one of their best albums. It becomes harder to define a favorite due to the high quality of all their records. One of the reviews said it best... they sound rejuvenated. It's back to their old wonderful form.

    Not their best album by any stretch of the imagination. However it's still a lot better than most of the other rubbish being churned out in this genre of music.

    superlative; this album is immensely enjoyable. No band writes catchier punk songs than bad religion. Oh, and their drummer, Brooks Wackerman, is excellent.

    Love this band, havent lost any steam since they started, but in some songs you really get the feeling that they overedited the thing... they lose some of the rawness of thier previous releases.

    Great Album. The last five songs could have been a little better.

  1. It finds that the guys don't just still have it, but they sound goddamn rejuvenated, bristling with electric energy and undeniable fervor.
  2. New Maps is a terrific sounding record; at least two-thirds of it begs many repeated listens.
  3. The album is closer to the thrash end of their style then the folk, and the music reflects the anger in the songs brilliantly.
