Robb does it again!!!,
This review is from: Some Recent Protest Songs (Audio CD)
The style is indie with a big nod to singer/songwriter with the tiniest element of folk-rock...
The songs are *excellent*, funny, melodic, passionate, irreverant...but, NEVER lacking punch...
If you are new to Robb's music, this is a good place to start...then get 'Tony Blair - My Part In His Downfull', 'Margaret Thatcher - My Part In Her Downfall', 'Clockwork Music', and 'The Triumph Of Hope Over Experience'...
If you know Robb's music already, you will absolutely love this album!!!!
Starting with a humour-laden tongue in cheek dig at the ConDems, it continues at it starts...track 3, a humourous mix of spoken/sung song where Nick Clegg meets a destiture creature on his way home from a hard day 'As the a important deputy prime minister - washing and ironing Dave's jogging bottoms'. The wretched, destiture creature turns out to be one of Nick's principles...
Deep Down Underground is a nod to the courage of the Chilean miners and those that rescued them....the twist being that, in the song, it is bankers that get trapped underground...and ordinary people turn up to bring bricks and slabs of concrete.
I could comment on each individual song...but, that would make for a LONG review...simply put, for anyone left of centre into indie, pop, singer songwriter, or just into good quality pop songs and protest songs....this album is for you.
