Perhaps their most musical accessible album to date, it sounds like a "musical"- although it is still not sugared enough for mass consumption. The biggest change, forever growing since WAT; are the lyrics - Gone is the hiding within the recesses, here they are direct and injected with fun (Spectre) whilst also pointing to one momentous direction - forever forward.
In a clear manifesto for the future - the overwhelming expression is for a direct revolution not just of the economical order but also to overturn the stuckness within the human soul - based upon acquisition and gain - to overcome a deep sense of personal inferiority and to connect to others in a form of human solidarity. So Laibach have turned back to the work of Test Department, or alternatively they have stepped out of the shadows of their Central European Depression after the first seeds were stamped upon in the 1930's to now actually believe in a future. So there is an embracing of Snowden, Occupy, Assange and the other green shoots of modernity which are sprouting in the wake of the cufflink scrape across the laminate of the New World Order just appearing to be a loud screech - look into the face of Kerry/Chaney.
Music- much slower, ponderous, elements of The Normal, some electro power ballads, less strident, more female counterpoint to the gravel that flows across the speakers, electro sounds - it may alienate those who want to hear Die Liebe and Panorama- but whereas punk disappeared into parody and industrial segued into HM or black clad youth clutching Spengler's decline of the West - anything that posits a future is welcome.
