    A phenomenal recording of sonic and lyrical depth. [#53, p.69]
  2. The band has energy and urgency anew.
  3. The three- guitarist approach brings back the spark and rush of their 1988-'94 peak.
  4. Sounds more like Bad Religion than any Bad Religion album has in years. [Mar 2002, p.71]
  5. Catchier melodies and more breathlessly clever wordplay than the band has managed in years.
  6. The album is solid, though hardly anything spectacular.
  7. Plunges right back into oppressively rigid formula.

    This is the best CD since "Suffer". It is easily the best one yet if you know BR.

    This album stays with what made Bad Religion great, and it makes it better. If you don't like this CD you don't know your music.

    Bad Religion again proves themselves to be the most intelligent, thought-provoking, and melodic band out there. Buy this cd if you're sick of ear-candy. Collapse

    One word... Saweet. I just recently got this cd and its one of, if not the best punk albums ive ever listined to. They actually get me thinking about things that have never really crossed my mind before while providing awesome lyrics. I think that dudes voice is awesome, he just never seems to get mad about anything or atleast he doesnt sound like it. Expand

    What a comeback album with Brett Gurewitz back in the lineup. Lyrically this is a very strong album of Bad Religion which is saying quite a bit since most things related to this band is truly classical when it comes to song writing abilities of Greg Graffin and Mr. Brett. Stand out tracks on this album are: Epiphany,Evangeline, Sorrow and Bored & Extremely Dangerous. I would go as far as to say, that this album is quite comparable to Bad Religion's classic 1988 released Suffer album. Expand
