5.0 out of 5 stars Faux National-Bolschewistisches Musik,anyone?, 1 Aug 2010
This review is from: Opus Dei (Audio CD)
This is a great album,Very Fascist yet also very Communist in its audio-Visual style with an eclectic mix of musical influences all the way from the thundery Queen spoof,One Vision,that actually works sincerely,as personally I had long since lost interest in Queen's histrionic gay Pop crap,to the Life is Life version that shows how a particular treatment can alter the mood of a given melody so much...There are some wonderful melodies here,too,As only Laibach can or could deliver in modern music,as well as some outings that are either progressive rocky or late prog punky...The four last songs seem to feature a background Goebbels speech from the era of that disastrous war Europa still pays for...Perhaps this set is better than their later technoey stuff although MacBeth is or was excellent,too,as are some songs on Kapital.

If you want to start with Laibach then this album is much more accessible than their earlier industrial slavophone albums which are all rather bleakly if earnestly doomladen,grim,dreary,sparse,incomprehensible and unmelodic even though still worth a listen although it might be too gothic or ironic for Vlad Dracula and yet,oddly enough this area is where National-Socialism began...Laibach Beginners,try this as the four extra tracks that were on the cassettes but which were not on the eight song vinyl record are here inclusive.MacbethLet It BeNato
