5.0 out of 5 stars ACHTUNG!!! Masterpiece forever!!! 20 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
"Volk" is a true masterpiece and this is mostly thanks to the impressive productional work of Silence. Laibach in collaboration with Silence members Boris Benkov (lyrics and vocal arangements) and Primoz Hladnik (strings and keyboards arangements) have realesed a serius contender for this year's best album. Needless to say, finding songwriters (producers) capable of bringing this bold idea to life without damaging Laibach's integrity and alienating the band's vast fan base was a delicate task.

5.0 out of 5 stars their best work? 7 Jun 2007
By ayeball
Format:Audio CD
Laibach display a new and impressive maturity on Volk - forsaking the militaristic 'techno' of yore for an unexpected subtlety of touch and an impressive variety of instrumentation and song structure. I've listened to this album more than any of their others - and it's still revealing itself to me.

A real grower, and I'd go so far as to say I'd recommend this over ANY of their other albums.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Laibach configured a template to transform music into an art form moving beyond consumer genres. Emerging from the ashes of middle European punk but filtered via Transistor airwaves into a Central European mindset. One that was trapped in the iron grip of a softcore authoritarianism, the big daddy of Tito who oversaw a land of bland marching columns, Laibach imbibed the anger, rolled it around the throat and growled it out.

Drawing together elements of Lydon and P-Orridge, incorporating John Heartfield and Irwin Kunst they fused artistic conceptual philosophical frameworks,especially Dada along with their Centeuro culture to fuse into something unique.

This album is one side a multi faceted mask, it builds upon a number of surrogate national anthems to inject some passion into the moribund dirges which breastbeat national identity. Nationalism emerged within the 19thC as a defining force and then nearly annihilated the 20thC.

As they rework the tunes, they emerge from the brass clang of a tear in the eye to something haunting, ethereal and in most cases deeply moving. The musical backdrop incorporates critiques of various national mindsets; chiding the Germans away from marching to return to farming, the British for their imperial arrogance, the Americans for a vision drift, along to Turkey, Russia, Israel China, France, Italy and themselves as NSK. Appears to have hit the mark according the UTube comments pages, where outraged nationalists have voiced their collective wounds and desire to incorporate these hymns.

Drawing together a growl, soothing opera, rock bombast, multi hued acid grounded within a rock and other artistic sentiments - this is sublime. It all somehow makes perfect sense.

One qualm is Laibach are not as world dominant as U2 or Tracey Emin.

Why is it that mediocrity is rewarded and true visionaries derided?

5.0 out of 5 stars Laibach's best yet. 29 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Intelligent and listenable experimental music that blends different styles and approaches. Laibach can be critical where warranted ('America,' 'Anglia,''Francia') and humane ('Germania' 'Yisrael') when merited and always insightful and provocative. This will win them a larger audience than their earlier more 'difficult' material.
