Give it some time, dude.
Fuck this is awesome, and it's quite a quick grower. It really is better, much better than New Maps. New Maps seriously lacked variety in songs. It's a pity, there are some excellent tracks on that album, but you couldn't really say they stand out on their own. On Dissent however this problem is gone. I don't give a damn if the album is poppier, because the songs are pretty damn awesome.
I just became a bigger Bad Religion fan than before.
