Sounds like a recipe for hate


No, those are little things that make perfection into something you can get a hold of.

I got Age of Unreason in the mail early this week.  Didn't like it at first, but it's growing on me.  Today, I am thinking it's a pretty good record.  I am pleased it is not all about Trump (I find songs about Trump about as intellectually stimulating as love songs), and that its message is in fact multifaceted.  I had reservations about all the lineup changes as well, but I have concluded that this record does indeed sound like BR, and as a bonus it contains all the indignance and intellectual arrogance that a BR record should have!

Weird when you realize that there's almost as much time between the releases of TPOB and AOU than there is between HCHBAW and TPOB. O_o

That is crazy to think about. Maybe I'm just old, but I feel like so much more went on in the rock music world between HCH and PoB as opposed to the time between PoB and AOU. 

I mean, yeah, the "music industry" has changed more in the latter period due to tech and the internet, but has anything even remotely interesting happened in the rock genre in the last 20 years? I'm talking genres or movements, not just a few good records. From 81-02 you had punk, hardcore, thrash metal, indie rock, grunge and "alternative", punk pt II, pop punk, emo...

Interesting.  I'd also thought about Process of Belief recently, before I read the rest of this thread.

I've listened to Age of Unreason enough to digest it now.  I actually really like it, it runs the gamut of BR's modern style, with songs that could variously have been on every BR album since Process of Belief.  I've been told there are some parts that hearken back to the older style (i.e. pre-New America) but my ears don't really hear it.  In any case, I'm very pleased that AoU came to be.  Good record!

Well, now I can't unhear it.  Not really a bad thing, but I am still listening to AoU at least once daily (new music effect) and every time I do I get the song you linked stuck in my head!  The pop influence on BR does shine through fairly often (like on almost every song, maybe?  I read somewhere that the Beatles were one of the main influences on BR) but being unfamiliar with pop rock (specially pre-90s) I tend to forget about it.

Had to listen to it quite a few times before it started growing (as for many albums actually). Now I think it's a very good album.

I would have put lyrics louder compared to drums and chords.

Many songs have pieces that remind me of past BR albums (and one sentence reminds me of something from South Park and one song obviously reminds me of the Descendents.) (Not something bad, just noticing)

The weak point for me is "Lose your head", not absolutely bad, but a very weak song in all BR's discography).

"What tomorrow brings" is good but I find it weak compared to ... maybe all to BR's closing songs *.



I still need to dive a bit more into the lyrics as English isn't my mother language, not sure of everything I hear at that pace.



* With the exception of the 80-85 era and the Stranger Than Fiction version of 21st Century Digital Boy (if you consider it the closing song of STF because for me that album always ended with "News from the front" + "Markovian process")

I was born relatively recently

But holy shit

I have tended to classify BR albums as Pre-Atlantic albums, then Atlantic albums, then Return to Epitaph albums. Really though, this makes no sense, come to think of it.

Epitaph: 79-94: 15 years
Atlantic: 94-01: 7 years
Return to Epitaph: 01-19: 18 years
Holy fuck

I organize them in my head as: 
The old stuff (79-84), 
The PERFECT holly trilogy (88-90), 
The PERFECT grown up experimental 3 (92-94), 
The Downhill Brett's out years (95-2000), 
The OK highs and lows new stuff (everything after that).

Crazy to think the "new stuff" started 20 years ago, while the "old stuff" had like 10 years when I first listened and they were already "old" for my teenage self.
