UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.5 |   BBC

    With its high-minded lyrical concerns, its family-sized choruses and its authors’ buoyant pursuit of what, in lesser hands, could be a restrictive musical form, True North is a superior addition to Bad Religion’s already towering body of work

  2. 8.3 |   A.V. Club

    Once again, Bad Religion is orienting itself home, to the hardcore scene that spawned it
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Simply doesn’t need to be original or inventive. Bad Religion’s sound is as effective a shield against the numbing white noise, both political and musical, that makes up much of the world outside as it was in 2007, 1988 or 1979

  4. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    True North is another solid addition to the Bad Religion repertoire, even if it integrates itself a little too well to stand apart from the pack

  5. 7.0 |   Spin

    True North delivers one succinct, poppy punk tune after another
    Read Review

  6. 7.0 |   musicOMH

    It’s business as usual for Bad Religion. 30 years on, they still rail against corruption, greed, and irrational stupidity
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   DIY

    Makes a strong attempt to breathe new life into the songwriting partnership of Greg Graffin and Brett Gurewitz by utilising the tried and tested method of getting back to their roots

  8. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    At over three decades in the business, originality might no longer reign in the world of Bad Religion, but reliability and accessibility certainly do – True North is another solid addition to a formidable canon

  9. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    In a world where the gap between them and us is being unrelentingly widened, bands like Bad Religion remain essential in the effort to give voice to the views of the increasingly disenfranchised majority

  10. 6.0 |   Q

    Very much business as usual. Print edition only

  11. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Bad Religion see no reason to mess with the formula. Which is reassuring. Print edition only

  12. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Perfectly plotted two-minute bursts of disgust and attrition. Print edition only
