    Default Favorite/least favorite Bad Religion albums

    I know there are quite a few threads about them, and I've always liked this band, but these last couple weeks I've been REALLY into them for the first time. I downloaded their entire catalog and have been listening to all of it - normally I listened to my favorite songs.

    So I'm curious about everyone's favorite and least favorite albums. Of the albums I already had, Stranger than Fiction was always my favorite, but I think that's changing. Right now I dig New Maps of Hell and No Control the most... New America used to be my least favorite, but right now I really can't get into No Substance. Feel free to give elaborate responses - I'll read them.

    I used to hide my porn in my Bad Religion folder.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    Favorite, probably the Empire Strikes First. Lyrically, I think it's one of their best efforts. And I love it when they branch out from their traditional song format: and "Boot Stamping on a Human Face Forever" is a perfect example of that: it may be a slower song, but it's one of my favorite tracks from the band.

    Least favorite: well, i don't actually think it's their worst (which is probably like New America or something) but i'm not really a fan of Recipe For Hate. It's got a couple decent tracks (ie, American Jesus) but as a whole, it really didn't "click" with me.

    Yeah, my favorites are the same as yours, Lamas. Stranger Than Fiction, No Control and New Maps of Hell. New Maps, in my opinion, was better than Empire. Empire had some really great songs on it, but it's a tight race between the two with New Maps coming out just a little ahead.

    My least favorite, despite having their signature song on it, was Recipe for Hate. I also didn't like New America and The Gray Race, but I did like No Substance. I like "Sowing the Seeds of a Utopia" and "The Voracious March Of Godliness". I can understand people complaints about it, but I still dig some of the tunes on their, unlike Gray Race or New America.

    This is actually kind of funny. The reason I never got into Bad Religion is because my neighbor lent me this cd and told me it was their best and I fell asleep listening to it and gave it back to him.

    Huh.

    Recipe For Hate might have some real letdowns (for example "Lookin' in" is one of the least interesting songs they ever did imho) but it has some of their best work (i.e. Skyscraper is pure brilliance). Still this might be my least favorite BR album. My most favorite might be No Substance, it's a really underrated album and has a lot of underappreciated songs, mainly music-wise, lyrically they have better stuff. Funny thing is, Recipe For Hate and No Substance are those albums which might have the most "unusual-for-bad-religion" tracks. So I guess I like all other albums equally. (not counting Into The Unknown, no one knows they ever released that abomination )

    My favorite BR albums are mostly the Brett Gurewitz era albums, including How Could Hell Be Any Worse?, Suffer, No Control and Stranger Than Fiction.

    And my least favorite? Most likely The Gray Race and/or anything without Brett, which I'm not a fan of. Sure, The Gray Race has some great tracks (including "A Walk" and "Punk Rock Song"), but with Brett not in it, I kinda find it boring. And for No Substance and The New America? Same complaint about The Gray Race.

    I know, but I just can't stand any Bad Religion without Brett, he's just one of my favorite guitarists.
