Greg Graffin - "Making Time"

As much as I love Bad Religion, I can't really say I'm a huge fan of their more recent output. It's not horrible, but it just doesn't have the same impact that their earlier work does. Maybe it's success or just getting older, but it happens to most bands. Considering that, I was cautious at best when I decided to listen to "Making Time," the latest solo song from Greg Graffin. The Bad Religion frontman is releasing Millport, what appears to be an acoustic, folk album. Trust me, I know exactly what you are thinking. And I agree. When I first started listening to "Making Time," I was debating if I should even tell all of you about it since I was just going to trash it. But then something odd happened: I might like this. Graffin's voice is somehow oddly well suited to laid back acoustic folk songs, and I never thought I'd hear Bad Religion mixed with a banjo. My only complaint is that musically it's a bit too generic and middle of the road. There is some potential here, but I'm not sure if "Making Time" meets it.

You can listen to "Making Time" below. Greg Graffin's solo album, Millport, will be out on March 10 via Anti-. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Greg Graffin and Bad Religion, check out their website.
