Under The Radar

Age of Unreason is a mission statement for 2019 from a band that's made a history of mission statements in dire times.

Are we listening to the same album?

I was thrilled when I realized today was the day that Age of Unreason was being released. I was just gonna listen to Suffer for the 1,307,955th time this week when I saw this was out. Maybe it's just because Bad Religion is one of my favorite bands, but I don't think this is nearly as lifeless or generic as other people seem to. It comes in swinging with the fantastic opening suite that is the first four tracks: Chaos from Within, My Sanity, Do ... read more
