The Dissent of Man
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 28, 2010
Label: Epitaph

Three decades is a long time to stay mad. But on their 15th album, these venerable West Coast punks are as revved-up and pissed-off as ever, railing about everything from interpersonal relationships ("Cyanide") to illogical arguments ("Ad Hominem," on which frontman Greg Graffin puts his PhD to good use). There are a few new wrinkles -- the manic push-pull of "Meeting of the Minds" could almost pass for System of a Down -- but it's generally overdrive-guitar heaven. The money shot is "Someone to Believe," an anthemic fist-waver that roars against the dying of the light.
