Gimme three totally unfuckwithable BR records;

- zero complaints
- 100% awesome song ratio
- no debate
- ready to defend every song to the death

I mean, y’all can debate it, but there’s no debate for the poster. This BR fan will die on the hill of the 3 perfect albums.

Go:’

It's tough because every album has one song that I can do without. I'm going say that these three albums are the ones I would be stoked to see live in their entirety without getting bored in the middle of the set. It's different when you're listening to a record through headphones or in your car. It's easy to mentally take yourself somewhere else to deal with the filler songs on an album. 

1. No Substance
2. ATG
3. No Control

I don't think there's any album by any band that I think is completely perfect. BR-wise, I would probably say TESF, No Control and The Process of Belief are the ones that are closest to being flawless.
Then there are albums like True North that have one song that I usually skip (Popular Consensus).

Well, here's the thing. STF, Empire, & AtG have always been my favourites, but yeah they do have their weak songs. Over the years, I've found the one album that I have found the most listenable as a full album, is Suffer. I think Suffer's one weakness is that it is too consistent - all the songs pretty much sound the same.

No Control is the closest to perfect IMO. I agree Sanity may not be an A+ song but I don't think it is an awful song either. The rest of that album is relentlessly amazing. 

If Markovian Process and News From The Front were used rather than Television and What It Is on STF, I'd call that album near perfect. Still can't believe those songs got voted down.

Honestly anything from HCHBAW to Gray Race are "non skip" records for me. Are there a couple "B" songs on most of those records? Sure. Anything post GR has several B and/or sub-B songs on it, and for me, some skips. 

So that is my long-winded answer: there aren't 3. 


Posted By: Chainofslowdecay
Date Posted: 06/21/2019 at 21:07
Also I noticed a lot of mention of TPoB and TESF. I love those records, but personally I think songs like Destined For Nothing, The Lie, Broken, even Kyoto Now!... and All There Is, To Another Abyss and even Los Angeles Is Burning or the title track on Empire are kinda "meh" songs. Certainly compared to the other, stronger songs on those records. None of those are "this is where the fun is" skip-worthy bad, but they keep those records from perfection IMO.

I always forget about No Substance!  Not in my top three, but I really like how the guitars sound on that record.  Heavy.  It's Bad Religion's metal album.

No. Operation Rescue and unacceptable - meh and skippable. And for a long time Misery and Famine was skippable as well. The Lie on TPoB is boring as fuck.

But I do agree about Empire, it is the closest to perfection. With the variety of songwriting, it still maintains consistency in quality (even if the title song is kinda stupid), whereas I don't feel any other album does that. STF and Suffer are the most consistent with having great songs, but there's basically no variety (Not saying that's a bad thing - STF is my fav with ATG, but as an argument for this subject, containing little variety).

TGR is one of my top 5 BR Albums.
I love the sound of it!

But I skip Nobody Listens, Spirit Shine, and sometimes 10 in 2010 and The Streets of America, so that 100% song ratio in the OP is not satisfied :)

Interesting that people call ATG a perfect album. IMO it has more subpar/filler songs than either Suffer, No Control or even Generator. Blenderhead, Positive Aspect, Faith Alone (sorry, I'd choose Sanity any day of the week), Misery or Famine... All of these don't do much for me. 

Suffer is great. Aside from maybe Part IV, which I never seem to remember, every single song is memorable - no matter how similar they all sound to each other.

My three picks would be:

1. No Control - pretty much a perfect punk record
2. Empire
3. NMOH - may not be a popular opinion but I think I actually love every single song.

I also love Stranger Than Fiction, but I used to hate Television and Hooray For Me. I still think this is not Brett's strongest material (to put it lightly) but they both bring different kind of energy and color to the table, which I grew to enjoy. As for What It Is, I actually like this song a lot, so no problem here.

Well... we did have to choose 3 perfect albums.  Per the rules given in the OP, I do not accept your dismissal of AtG.

Blenderhead - the story of my life
Positive Aspect - to not like this song is... unacceptable
Faith Alone - heavy riffs, oozin ahs, what's not to like?
Misery and Famine - maybe I like it because I am compelled by a force I cannot see

Isn't this thread about "perfection"? ATG/STF/TESF are my favourites, but I still think ATG lags in the second half with Operation Rescue and Unacceptable being the weakest of the bunch, and although I like Television, it's also pretty weak compared to the rest and the addition of 21st Century Digital Boy ruins an otherwise killer album. TESF is pretty close to perfection in my opinion, but then so is Suffer since I find the songwriting across the board the most consistent. I differ with TPoB as I've always found the second half annoying - The Lie just straight out sucks, and some of the melodies are a bit meh.

So, yeah ATG and STF are still my favourite albums, but no, I don't think they're "perfect" (though STF (with all four b-sides) is close (and minus 21st Century Digital Boy) is perfect).

I don't think they have a perfect album, but here are the top contenders:

1. No control
The only bad song here is Sanity. How it even made the album in the first place is beyond me. Even if it were a typical uptempo Bad Religion song, it still wouldn't be that good. Other than that, though, the album is pretty much perfect. Except for the major chords where they should be minor, of course.

2. Empire strikes first
This one has no bad songs, but I feel like the title track is a little weak for a title track, and Live again is kind of a weak closing song. Other than that, it's ridiculous how consistently good this album is.

3. New maps of hell
It was sort of a tie between Stranger than fiction and this one, but ultimately I think NMOH is more or less a perfect record. I could do without Before you die, and I usually skip the title track (Edit: New dark ages) , but I think the songwriting on this record is absolutely phenomenal.

I guess I can sort of see why someone would find Faith alone boring. I think a drummer like Brooks would make it more dynamic and interesting. 

However, I think it's one of the best songs of their career. There's a type of classic rock-vibe to the chord progressions and melodies and the whole song is just this perfect blend between darkness and beauty. At least that's how I see it.

Actually, I was listening to Honest Goodbye the other day to remind that that yes I still hate it. And I recognised that it had the potential to be a really great song, but it devolves into Brett's formulaic cheesiness. There's a really good guitar part in it, but it sort of flounders and never gets better.

This point is tired. Fans like to discuss. We like to hear (and sometimes don't like to hear) other people's opinions. The whole point of all these threads is to discuss our differing opinions. So it's actually your comment about the thread being dumb that's actually dumb. And pointless.

This point is tired. Fans like to discuss. We like to hear (and sometimes don't like to hear) other people's opinions. The whole point of all these threads is to discuss our differing opinions. So it's actually your comment about the thread being dumb that's actually dumb. And pointless.

Basically, the "de gustibus" comment is also an opinion... Is it more pointless than any other?
Yes. It's more pointless, and it's more other.

Aw.  Joe*, this thread is just what I would call a forum game.  It's like a thought exercise, playing devil's advocate... of course we all know there's no "perfect" album.**  We're supposed to choose three "unfuckwithable" records and "defend" them "to the death".  It's pure sarcasm, and also a chance for us to learn a bit about our fellow Bad Religioners.  As for the Einstein bit, I sort of think it takes a modicum of intelligence for anyone to appreciate Bad Religion in any meaningful way--and with intelligence frequently comes a tendency toward intellectual arrogance, I admit.  But again, we are Bad Religioners...  "Mediocre Minds" is one haughty, condescending song, and I suspect there's at least a bit of that in every single one of us here.

One of my other favorite forum games is making a thread where everyone has to "talk" in a pirate dialect.  Avast!  It be downright fun t' be sendin' scallywags down ta Davey Jones Locker!  Arr.  An' what be wrong wi' havin a bit o' fun, ey?

By the way, I didn't see you at the flagpole after school.  Your girlfriend showed up though, and we held hands all the way home.***

I wonder...if video killed the radio star, did twitter kill discussion boards?

*I did do a search for Joe Dawson, but the Hendrix song still gets in my head.
**Except for No Control, Suffer, and Against the Grain.  And Christmas Songs.
***That was also sarcasm.  Your girlfriend didn't hold my hand, she kicked my ass and stuffed me in a trash can full of original pressings of AtG.

My opinion is the only one that matters, for one undisputable reason : the world is holographic and you all only exist in my own perception, therefore, your opinions are irrelevant.

This one has no bad songs, but I feel like the title track is a little weak for a title track, and Live again is kind of a weak closing song. Other than that, it's ridiculous how consistently good this album is.

To me, Los Angeles is Burning and Let Them Eat War are weak. Lyrics wise, they are good, but the music is booooring. Live again is one of their worst closer. The Empire Strikes First is another 21st century, where the fun is type of song. Social suicide is blend.

I like the album because you have some gems on it. But it's a very uneven album.

And Joe, why?

I'm surprised reading how many people don't like Sanity. One of my favorites, and it's played live every few years it seems.

No Control
Against the Grain
Stranger Than Fiction

Ok I will agree that LA is burning is a pretty boring song. It took me years to even stop skipping it and even now it's hardly a favorite. Let them+Live again aren't their strongest efforts but I think those three songs are good enough for me to consider the album to be consistently good.

I consider LA is Burning and Fuck You the weakest songs on those respective albums, I can't understand why they are considered "hits" and played at almost every show.
