Throughout the album the band proves, once again, the importance of critical thinking and reminds us that waking up and paying attention is the most valuable tool any of us have.

As you'd expect, musically they're full-tilt melodic punk rallying cries, with the warmth of Greg Graffin's vocals contrasting beautifully against Brett Gurewitz's barbed riffs to suggest there's still a chance for redemption if we stand up and fight. [Jun 2019, p.86]

The band's commitment to keeping the genre vital, both musically and lyrically, feels as necessary as it does timely.

While these songs may lack the same kind of energetic rage that defined the band in their early years, they're still a formidable way of exposing truths and holding the powers that be to account. [4 May 2019, p.55]

It’s one of the most visceral records the band have produced since 2004’s ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ but is still delivered with that trademark eloquent bow.

Trumpers are going to hate this one Another brillant piece of punk rock from one of the greatest bands of the genre. There will be a lot of negative reviews coming from the Trump imbeciles.

Floater5412 years ago
I’m a “Trumper” and I love it!! In spite of other fans trying to polarize this band and album, this imbecile loves Bad Religion and the songs so far! Have been a fan of BR since 1989 and they never disappoint. Counting down the days for the full release!!! See ya at the Sabroso fest!!

Thank the Maker!!! In an insane world of "alternative facts" anti science trogdolites,along comes Bad Religion to keep me sane.The boys still have it after 3 decades. Get this album!!!

Great follow up to True North I've seen Bad Religion live 4 times in the last 2 years - they are at the top of their game. If the first three singles are any indication (chaos from within, my sanity, profane rights of man) this is going to be a nice follow up to True North which was a nice hearkening back to 1980's Bad Religion (not that 90's or 00's are not good, they are just differnent eras in this bad's evolution). Seeing them again in OH this year at Camp Anarchy and can't wait. The album will just have dropped and i hope they play some of it live. Been a fan since Suffer first dropped, and they remain my favorite band to this day.

It’s Okay I like Bad Religion, but it’s no longer edgy to say “orange man bad”. The singer said himself that everything that’s been said about him has all been said before, but then he ironically goes back on himself and dedicated an album to finding problems with nothing, or over things that are actually good. I look forward to seeing them live, but without the holier than thou attitude from them and others.
