20th Anniversary Edition pressed on orange & black galaxy vinyl Bad Religion has been the iron man of Southern California hardcore punk for more than two decades. The core of the group, founded in the San Fernando Valley in 1980 by teenagers Brett Gurewitz (guitarist), Greg Graffin (vocalist) and Jay Bentley (bassist), are reunited on their twelfth album, THE PROCESS OF BELIEF. Gurewitz rejoined the band for a second time in 2001 to record 14 blasts of melodic punk that take off with the hyperdrive rocker 'Supersonic,' in which Graffin yearns to live 'decently, meaningfully' over double-time drums and buzzing guitars. The album is a return to form for the group, mixing pop-inflected hard rock songs about alienated, throwaway teens ('Broken') with intricately worded, mile-a-minute rants like 'Materialist,' which slams dollar-chasers obsessed with 'nonsense and incipient senescence.' Its Graffin and Guerwitz's erudite songwriting that elevates their sometimes by-the-numbers punk over that of contemporaries 20 years their junior. Whether ranting about environmental issues ('Kyoto Now'), crooning over a punkabilly swing tune describing the fractured relationship between a father and son ('Sorrow'), or bemoaning the modern culture of surveillance in the straight-up pop/rocker 'The Defense,' Bad Religion remains the premier choice for punk rockers who love both Minor Threat and the 'The New York Times.'
