Top Customer Reviews
Put simply the band use a rap-metal formula but there's banjos, horns, sweet female backing vocals, and cellos on it... It shouldn't work, but it does to such an alarming effect it really needs a new genre to describe it. It's success is partly due to the dexerous playing which betrays the fact the band have been playing and recording for 8 years. They even manage to make the genre that most would confine to an early noughties niche come completely back to life.
Aside from that there's the lyrics. Delving back to something from the pre-gangsta era this is one angry, articulate, politically aware record. The likes of Michael Franti, Chuck D, and host of lesser known old school political agitators spring to mind. One thing to say is it never sounds worthy or just aware for the sake of it. These guys clearly believe what they say and are exceptionally well informed.
This is their third album and the first for a major. If anyone needed proof that people should be gently moved into the spotlight then they need go no further than this record. A confident sound from a band who are fully fledged and not just sounding it. Whether you're looking for something a bit more challenging than the last couple of Chilli Peppers albums, want something intellegent, a reminder that intelligent things can be expressed in Hip-Hop, or just proof that the "Handlebars" hit isn't a one-off then you should give this more than a cursory listen.
Although some of the theme are a little to 'american' for my british tastes most of the tracks are amazing. The influences go far beyond hip-hop and a bit of rock, to include jazz and even folk stylings. One of the early tracks, Mayday I believe, even reminds me of System of a Down in places.
Handlebars really is the stand-out track.
If you are looking for 'fiddy-sent' style gangbanging look elsewhere, if you are looking for cerebral hip-hop with well-though out lyrics you can do little better than Flobots.
Go buy it now!
I'm watching, you still haven't clicked the button.
Political, clever and beautiful. With rock styling mixed with Hip Hop, powerful lyrics and a great structure Flobots is essential listening. These guys (and girls) deserve to be huge.
What I love most about this album is the time and thought given to each element within the band; the lyrics are inspiring, clever, powerful (Without being politically preachy) and wrapped round a fantastic rhythm section. I particularly noticed the drums and bass in this album, they are amazingly played and provide a brilliant grove throughout the album; this added to funky/rock guitar, with a powerful sounding Violin and wind instruments makes this album a truly musical masterpiece. A perfect fusion of Hip-Hop, Rock and Funk. The song `Combat' displaying this impressive element of the band.
If you are intrigued by this album check out 'Rise', 'Fight with Tools' or 'Stand Up'. But I can't see any fan of music being disappointed with this album or taking something from it.
Good stuff indeed
