Cold As Clay

Greg Graffin's acoustic folk album is ingenious and it really shows off Greg's song writing talents. The album is called "Cold As Clay" and it contains eleven American folk songs, a style quite different from the punk music that is usually associated with Greg Graffin as lead singer of "Bad Religion." I don't foresee myself ever growing out of punk music anytime soon but even if I did, this is an album that I will continue to be listening to for a long time to come. Greg Graffin really surprised me with the sheer quality of the album. He sounds like he has been writing folk songs for decades and you wouldn't ever know his punk roots if you were unfamiliar with his past. There is beauty in simplicity and this album goes to prove the point. I really enjoy the album and hope he continues to write and release new material while he pursues Bad Religion.
