5.0 out of 5 stars The Cat's Claws, 6 Mar 2014

This review is from: Spectre (Audio CD)
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.

Great album. If you want to listen to something innovative and unique, Laibach's always a safe bet ! A very different album compared to its predecessors yet so very similar.

Awesome! a great recording experience, and their best album since WAT...a must for the newly converted, and essential for the old brigade. 10/10.

I tried, I failed. I am now obsessed. Thirty years of albums is a tall order, but I will have to dig deep and start buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Velvet Glove over the Iron Fist, 5 April 2014

This review is from: Spectre (Audio CD)
A decades-long LAIBACH enthusiast, I was prepared for SPECTRE to be quite different as each LAIBACH album diverges significantly from the last. The first run-through invoked skepticism that it might constitute 'Laibach Lite', however these concerns were quickly resolved upon a second listening. SPECTRE dissolves the boundaries of musical media much like LAIBACH has championed the dissolution of geo-political borders. Anthemic, intriguing, and with more than a slight dose of wry humor, SPECTRE features Mina Špiler's delicately ferocious vocal stylings balanced against the cacophony of LAIBACH's frightening but prophetic assessment of contemporary global politics. This is an album full of promise.

"and SPECTRE always delivers what it promises" (From Russia With Love, 1963)

I'm 42 and have not bought any new music for years but I still get excited by anything Laibach do. They seem to be getting more signifigant with time. My kids ( 3&5) love them too. My oldest has got. Most of his reception class singing Tanz Mit.
