Thought provoking genius,
This review is from: Revolutionary Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
If your a fan of 50 cent or the like, well then IT's music will certainly do one of two things to you;
It will either leave make you a fan of the greatest Emcee alive OR with lyrics like, "I'll shoot your moms in the back and f*ck the bullethole until she dies", you'll possibly end up crying and traumatised for life. Either way Immortal Technique and this album is certainly not for the feint hearted.
One other guarantee I can make is that you won't find lyrics such as "...I'll let you lick the lollypop" or talk about how 'rich and bling blinged up' said person is, on Revolutionary volume 2.
What you will get is an amazing album exposing the truth about the world we live in. The subject matter is varied; everything is discussed from 9/11 and its fallout, the Bush Administration, Corporations and free trade, the rise of the Illuminati/New World Order and more.
Each song is told in a story like way that creates a vivid image of what Technique wants you to visualise mainly thanks to the lyricism which is something to be admired.
It isn't meant to be pretty boy, materialstic commercial rap made for kids who watch MTV. It is eerie, sad, gritty and hard hitting music which really hits home about the important issues in the world and how we as people allow stuff to bypass us which will only serve to be our detriment.
Overall everyone should take a listen to Revolutionary Volume II as it will certainly open your eyes to the terror the world faces in its current situation.
This album itself equates to a work of art, whilst Technqiue is Rembrandt painting the picture, albeit a gory one.
