Bad Religion The Process Of Belief (Epitaph) Rating: NNN Rating: NNN
It appears that over the years Bad Religion have learned the value of prominently featuring sing-along parts in rock anthems. But as The Process Of Belief reveals, the grand old eggheads of punk are still reluctant to put down the thesaurus. The comical effect of trying to spit out shit like "incipient senescence" to a chugging riff just further undermines their ability to convey messages way too convoluted for three-minute rock tunes. Not only does it sound like a talking-book version of an anthropology text, but check the sleeve art -- the damn thing looks like one, too.
