5.0 out of 5 stars The seeds of rebellion October 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
After 14 studio albums, two live albums, countless singles and E.P.s, two compilations, and at least three solo albums from members, Bad Religion doesn't have anything left to prove. Particularly since they returned to their own Epitaph Records in the early 2000's, the quality of a Bad Religion release is practically guaranteed, and their fans are undoubtedly going to love every minute of it.

Somewhere along the way, Bad Religion must have become aware of the level of fan confidence they have, because The Dissent of Man is amongst the bolder records they have ever offered. Sure, Dissent of Man offers some blistering fast hardcore cuts, but there are also some unexpected textures here that are clearly influenced by lead singer Greg Graffin's forays into country and folk, and the acoustic bonus tracks that were added to the Deluxe edition of their last album, New maps of Hell. In fact, the song "Won't Somebody" was originally released as a new acoustic song as part of that deluxe packaging, here re-imagined with an electric, full-band arrangement.

In interviews included with the Live At The Paladium DVD, the members of the band revealed some of the musical artists that were influences on them through the years. The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Todd Rundgren were all listed, none of which are really that surprising when you consider BR's sound. Dissent of Man, however, adds a few unexpected names to that list via musical allusion. The opening riff of Resist Stance is a clear nod to Rush's Working Man (Greg Graffin and Brett Guerewitz's love of prog rock is well documented, but never hasn't been so clearly displayed since Into The Unknown). Pride and the Pallor could easily have come from Social Distortion's self-titled album.

5.0 out of 5 stars 30 years later, Bad Religion still reigns supreme September 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most major rock bands end up losing a lot of steam in their later years, and their music ends up being softer than it used to be, or less inspired. Not so with Bad Religion; it's been 30 years since they put out their very first album, and still their new music sounds charged and fresh, and it rocks very, very hard. And make no mistake, this isn't a good album "for a band 30 years on" or "for a band past its prime." The Dissent of Man goes toe-to-toe with the great albums Bad Religion was putting out 30 years ago and still comes out looking good. This is a great punk rock album, full stop.

The Dissent of Man, like New Maps of Hell before it, does a little bit of experimentation with different sounds and melodies, but through it all the songs don't lose their punk rock edge, for the most part. Songs like "Only Rain", "Wrong Way Kids", and "Avalon" expertly marry a catchy melody with a driving beat, while other tunes like "Resist Stance", "Meeting of the Minds" and "Ad Hominem" blow the listener away with ferocious lyrics and guitar. Far from losing their edge, Bad Religion is as forceful and driving as they've ever been on this album.

At the same time, other songs are a bit less in-your-face, but they make up for it with sophisticated lyrics, and hooks that are likely to get themselves stuck in your head. Among these is "Cyanide", the best song on the album, which is a bit of a departure from the normal Bad Religion sound (think "Prodigal Son" from New Maps of Hell meets Greg Graffin's solo album

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Expected -- 3.5 stars November 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Many previous reviewers have thoroughly dissected this album, so I'm not going to resort to ad nauseum redundancy. However, suffice it to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this offering by Bad Religion. As a youngster, albums such as SUFFER and AGAINST THE GRAIN were what I considered to be the quintessential Bad Religion sound. After about 2000 or 2001, Bad Religion pretty much fell off of my radar - until recently.

I happened to pick up DISSENT OF MAN purely by default; a big, corporate bookstore was in the death throes of a "going-out-of-business" sale, and I happed to find this CD in the bargain bin for $4. I figured "what the Hell, even if there are only a couple of good songs on this thing, it's still worth it at that price."

Perhaps more than anything, it pleases me to know that even after 30+ years, this band is still able to write catchy, riveting music that I truly enjoy. Granted, I tend to favor the faster songs on the album (e.g., THE DAY THE EARTH STALLED, THE RESIST STANCE, AVALON, etc.), but I can also appreciate the band's attempts at more diversity with songs like TURN YOUR BACK ON ME and WON'T SAY ANYTHING. These aforementioned songs may be a bit on the filler side of things, but they're not abjectly horrible. Plus, Greg Graffin's vocals have sort of an "ear worm" catchiness to them; I'll be doing dishes or something, and catch myself singing bits of the chorus to some of the "secondary" songs. Some punk rock elitists may scoff at this, but really, I'm sure that after so many years, Bad Religion has little desire to be pigeon-holed into a myopic niche.

It's not the greatest record that they've ever put out, but it isn't bad either. Rumor has it that they may be putting out their final album in 2012. I'll be purchasing it when it comes out.
