The Process Of Belief
Recalling the ferocity of their earliest work with the unique harmonizing qualities that've helped define a thriving generation in the So. Cal Punk scene, the reunited core team of Gurewitz, Graffin and Bentley have upped the anti again in sound, volume and density. "The Process Of Belief" rivals and surpasses anything they've accomplished to date, emotionally, technically, and tactfully. Each of the fourteen tracks follow their own paths, embodying thoughts of discontentment and discouragement, questioning authority and humanity along the way and react with resolve, filtered with virtue, and far surpass previously trained ideas of Punk music constraint.

OK, right--that's pretty much what these guys have been doing throughout their 20-year recording career. But they've got a bit more spring in their step on "Process," perhaps because of the first appearance of original guitarist-songwriter Brett Gurewitz since 1994's "Stranger Than Fiction," or maybe because the group, which moved to Atlantic Records that same year, has returned to Gurewitz's fiercely indie Epitaph label.
Speaking partly as if addressing a select few who can understand the message, and partly as if anyone who really listens can get it, the band tears through 14 tracks in 36 minutes. Guitars mesh with pell-mell assurance as the players veer from the singsong one-two punk of "Supersonic" and "Destined for Nothing" to the breathless tirades "Prove It" and "Materialist" to the angular anthem "Epiphany" and the goth-pop ballad Broken."
"You might not think there's any wisdom in a ... punk rock song," taunts the environmentally minded "Kyoto Now!" Au contraire, messieurs. There is quite a bit.
Average Fan Rating: 4.57
Arguably the best BR...
From the 800 mph intro "Supersonic", my favorite song of all time "Can't Stop it", pop-rock "Broken", to the song even your parents would like "Sorrow", and not to mention the genius of "Epiphany" and "The Defense"... this CD is loaded with fucking gems.
