"God Is God" is a strong goth-metal-industrial (whew!) anthem. The covers of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and Prince's "The Cross" are interesting. The real standouts are "Kingdom of God," "Message From The Black Star," and "To The New Light."
Lyrically, the album twists the natures of Jesus, Satan and Hell. By the end, it's hard to tell if the point is that God reigns supreme over Lucifer, or that Lucifer IS God, and Jesus was a pawn all along the way. Still, even when it's confusing it's danceable.
"To The New Light" is worthy of Swans as scary songs go. It's an atmosphere piece with a spine-chilling vibe. When The Bottomless Throat says, "Bruddah uv miiinnne," you better have the lights on in the room.
The back-up choir and orchestral touches flesh out the religious feel of the album. Laibach have a definite shared view on God's role in the world: (From their website) "We believe in God, but we do not necessarily trust him."
This is a good album for people who want to decide their spiritual allegiance by working it out on the dance floor.
I think I like this one a lot because the album itself makes you think. I love it when songs make me think. This is a wonderful album and any fan of Laibach will like it as well. I think what I love most about thier music is thier harsh vocals combined with an orchestra, along with great metal beats, I love it. This is an album you should give your friends so you can turn them to Laibach, an album that plays well in your car, and if you're into art, something that will inspire you. My select favourite songs: God Is God, Jesus Christ Superstar, Abuse and Confession, Declaration of Freedom.
