0 of 7 thought this review was well writtenAbout the album
is just a repackaging of Bad Religion
's 1982 debut album How Could Hell Be Any Worse?
. The repackaging was released in 1991, nine years after the release of How Could Hell Be Any Worse?
. It also includes all songs from the two EPs Bad Religion
(1981) and Back to the Known
(1984) and three tracks from Public Service
. The whole album runs 56 minutes. 80-85
didn't include their 1983 second full-length album Into the Unknown
, likely due to it's genre changing and time of unpopularity. After the release of that album, the band took a five year break before releasing their critically acclaimed release Suffer
The band has been playing REAL PUNK ROCK
for years, their sound has been changing through out the years.
What I like about this album
I bought 80-85
on CD a couple years ago and enjoyed their journey back to their humble beginnings very much. First of all before I bought 80-85
, I didn't know Bad Religion
had any albums before Suffer
The sound is great, I don't think I have anything negative to say about it. The guitar sound is excellent like on any other Bad Religion albums. The bass and drum sound is also good.
The lyrics are probably one of the albums best parts. "We're Only Gonna Die" has some of the best "Early man walks away as modern man, took control, weren't all the same to conquer was their goal", where Greg Graffin
began to sing the song and "nice going spazz", the intro to "Frogger", which appeared on Back to the Known
We're Only Gonna Die

**** Armageddon... This Is Hell

Along the Way
