5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any Luke Haines fan, 23 July 2003
This review is from: Baader Meinhof (Audio CD)
My mate bought this album when it was 1st released off the back of the stonking 2nd Auteurs LP and hated it immediately. I've only just managed to get him to lend it to me and I can see why. It's not pretty. I can only describe it as a kind of art school funk album about terrorism. When you get over the initial shock, though, it really starts to get under your skin. It only lasts half an hour and so you end up playing twice in a row just to get your fix. The instrumentation is simple but bold and compliments the rhetorical style of the lyrics really well. I can't imagine Haines' reasoning behind the project other than to perplex and annoy the complacent music industry but it only goes to re-inforce how important a talent he is.
