Blistering hardcore from the southern California punk stalwarts. There's no religion like Bad Religion. For as much strife and turmoil the band has gone through since their beginnings they have remained remarkably consistent and prolific. Generator saw the band moving in a more experimental direction. Tracks like "Two Babies In The Dark" and "The Answer" have shifting song structures and heavy lead guitars. "Atomic Garden" takes a darker angle than anything that Greg Graffin had written before. Graffin explores more melodic territory throughout the album as well. For all of the divergence on the album, they still deliver the classic hardcore material that fans had come to love them for by this point. Checkout "Generator", "Tomorrow" and "Fertile Crescent" if the classic stuff is more your cup of tea.
