2008, Epitaph

Listening to Bad Religion's 1982 debut , How Could Hell Be Any Worse?, is like cupping your ear against the garage door of their practice space. Greg Graffin's vocal style isn't fully formed here, nor is his lyrical agenda, but the building blocks are significant and affecting, bigger than piles of collapsed cathedrals. Indeed, Voice of God Is Government begins with a caustic caricature of the money-grubbing preacher, who assures that donations will be used to censor TV and radio, ban questionable books, and contribute to many other Godly services. Snotty punk then crumbles into accelerated, anthemic hardcore. The subtle We're Only Gonna Die opens the album; the piano and acoustic guitar midsection is a nice foil for the youthful anger in the vocal and its crackling lead guitar riff, a sound and tone that would only become more refined and powerful with consecutive '80s outings. Fuck Armageddon...This Is Hell is another highlight, with its tense, urgent opening instrumental section and Graffin's Southern California-centric rail against throat-choking smog. ~ Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide
