Bad Religion : Broken

Further evidence of Bad Religion[/url]’s chronic aversion to anything resembling progress...

Could [a]Bad Religion[/a]’s unexpectedly healthy return to the fertile metal scene of 2002 be, as some informed people are speculating, the comeback of the year? We’re hedging our bets until December, especially since [a]Iron Maiden[/a]’s bobbed to the surface, though the godfathers of the Californian punk scene’s odds are looking good, which is something you can’t say about the band themselves.

Coming across like a thrilling fusion of early Green Day, mid-career Green Day and contemporary Green Day, ‘Broken’ is further evidence of [a]Bad Religion[/a]’s chronic aversion to anything resembling progress. Those crazy punks – always up to no good.
