I'm assuming that Into the Unknown is like the Stones' "Their Satanic Majesties Request"?

They certainly don't play any tracks from it, but the album shows a lot of the creativity the band had up their sleeve -- even if the results ended up somewhat strange. The album also resulted in the departure of two band members, which unquestionably shaped Bad Religion going forward. Of course it's not their best, but it's an important listen into Bad Religion history.

Yeah, that's a fair point, but it's hard to find the motivation to listen to an album I know I won't enjoy.

Oh dude trust me, it's totally worth listening to if only because it's so weird.

1. Suffer
2. How Could Hell Be Any Worse? (classic of the hardcore-punk genre, but not always in the mood for it)
3. No Control
4. Against the Grain (Turn on the Light has amazing lyrics)
5. Generator
6. Recipe for Hate
7. True North (production is the best of any Bad Religion album and the drumming is fantastic)
8. The Empire Strikes First (the title track gets me pumped every time!)
9. The Process of Belief
10. The Gray Race (lyrically this album is a standout for me)
11. The New America
12. Stranger Than Fiction (just can't get into it as much as others can for some reason)
13. The Dissent of Man (the slow tracks are not as strong as the ones on "New America", but the vocals on the opening track are amazing)
14. New Maps of Hell (the production is annoying, but the drumming is amazing)
15. No Substance

No: Into the Unknown

With the exception of Time and Disregard, Into the Unknown is terrible. No idea what y'all are talking about.

It isn't that it's "different" or that it doesn't follow the same formula as Bad Religion's other early stuff. It's that it's bad.

Into the Unknown

Didn't become a fan until about a year after The Dissent of Man was released. So while I can appreciate the importance of the earlier albums, I'll always be more attracted to the ones with better production/sense of melody.

I don't find myself the kind of person who loved their 'classics' more than their newer material. I love it all, easily one of my favourite bands.
