After over 4 years, a new propagandhi record surfaces, seemingly out of the blue. I had only found out about it 5 or 6 days prior to it's release. It doesn't, however, disappoint. This album follows on perfectly from "Todays empire's, tomorrows ashes". The aggressions there still, except this time it's more melodic. This isn't a bad thing. You really get the feeling each song has been tweaked to perfection. The first thing you'll notice about this record is that the songs are much longer. Apart from a couple of tracks, most songs on the cd clock in at around 4 minutes which is a big contrast from the 1 minute songs we have seen on previous propagandhi records. The lyrics on this cd are also less "preachy" but by no means less politically driven. Listening through "how to clean everything" was like being told off and shouted at for half an hour.
Anyway, the best songs on the record in my opinion are:
Fixed frequencies
Die Jugend Marschiert
Impedending Half Head
If you liked ANY of propagandhi's previous records then this will blow you away!

This is album is absolutely fantastic. I know lots of people have gone on about this record isnt "punk" or watever, but, did you ever think propagandhi wanted to be/ tried to be punks ? nope. Anyway, id say this is propagandhi`s 2nd best album. It is awesome, but i think "todays empires, tommorows ashes" just beats it. Theres only one song which is not great on this album, "cut into the earth" , but it`s still good. The songs that make this album so good are ,, A speculative fiction, fixed frequencies, rock for sustainable capitalism, bringer of greater things, name and address withheld,life at disconect, america`s army (die judgeblahblah)and iteration. If your a fan of "todasy empires" then you will love this cd. The world needed an album like this, so propagandhi gave it to us. I suggest you buy it.

This album took a few listens before I could really get into it - and now that I have, I have to say that in my humble opinion it is one of their best albums, maybe even their best.

Worth buying for the epic "Die Jugend Marschiert (America's Army)" alone, probably one of the most frightening songs released this decade.

Also listen out for these exceptionally well-read Canadians panning Fat Mike, Bono, Paul McCartney and Donald Rumsfeld at various points on this cracking album.
