The first of two Cope albums set for 2012; I'd actually give this 4.5/5 but that's not an option. Firstly, I'd advise people not to be put off by the gun-toting throughout the inlay and on the sleeve, it seems to be inciting mayhem and protest rather than murder, beating you round the head with strong imagery so you know just where he's coming from. Unlike recent years the focus seems to have shifted from specific attacks on organised religion, consumerism, politics and the US. A lot of people will tell you how you should feel and what views you should have: This is Cope presenting his own ideals and saying (not verbatim) "Hey, maybe there's something here you can use" There's no sense of demanding you share his opinions; start your own revolution as it were. He once said at a gig that we were all there purely because there's a lot wrong with the world and we know it and don't like it; that's pretty much where this is coming from.
Musically the album is fantastic. There's a lot of his recent folk leanings still present but also plenty of the wonderfully sterile synth pop all capped off with Black Sheep harmonies and Cope's voice in top form. This album works almost like a distant relative of You Gotta Problem, Black Sheep and The Unruly Imagination. If you're one of those bad people that disregards lyrics, you'll love it anyway, it's incredibly melodic.
For everyone else: Some tracks you might skip, others you might love, I enjoyed virtually all of them but that's just me. However, there are several songs that are quintessential Cope from the word go. I'll talk up just a couple:
'Raving On The Moor' is storming, moody and melodic; it's the perfect album opener which broods stop-start wah-wah before turning into a tearaway pounding of rant n rave.

Having conquered the pop charts in the 1980s with both the post-punk outfit The Teardrop Explodes and with more accessible solo numbers like World Shut Your Mouth, Julian Cope opted for the path less travelled in the 1990s. Temporarily hanging up his guitar, he found solace in the ancient and he turned his attention instead to becoming one of the world's foremost authorities on the neolithic stone circles of the British Isles.

This detour into prehistoric academia has seemingly influenced the later musical output of Cope, who has re-emerged in recent years as a raggedy space-shaman of a man. He has collaborated with several noteworthy fellow travellers of the space-cadet superhighway, including producer Mitch Razor and Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))), on his thunderous - and criminally overlooked - Brain Donor album Wasted Fuzz Excessive.

Now, for his latest opus he has taken on the role of "Voice of the Disenfranchised" on behalf of the silenced majority in our collapsing modern life.

Psychedelic Revolution is the culmination of Cope's long and meandering journey into the present day. It is the meeting point between his head-in-the-clouds psychedelia and the polemical anti-everythingisms of his punk rock heritage.

The double album is in turns tatty, sentimental, folksy, lugubrious, comical and bile-drenched in fury. Kicking off with Raving on the Moor, Cope creates for himself a Byronic hero who we find fleeing from a society of oppressive banksters and crony capitalists. Leaving it all behind, our man is seeking a romantic anarchy amidst the rain-lashed heathland of a forgotten England.

I didn't have very high expectations of this album, but it's excellent. The lyrics are thought-provoking and poignant. Some of the words were almost shocking on their clarity. The music is very folk orientated but with plenty of kraut rock influences too-- real psychedelia. For those that grew up at that time in Britain, this is a fascinating document. Maybe he will be remembered by the people of the future?

A chance excerpt from the first-rate h-e-a-v-y title track (which continues: "Gonna spike some f*****s tonight...") on this, the Archdrude's latest. He's toting a machine gun on the cover and the two discs are dedicated to politically intense heroes (Che Guevara and Leila Khaled)... nobody could accuse him of light entertainment. Musically, much of what's here wouldn't sound out of place on the (lighter passages of) his last record, the (frankly brilliant) Black Sheep - ballads take precedence (not much in the way of heavy workouts), with the lyrics really well spotlighted. And lyrically, the record's very intriguing - frequently hilarious and, at times, bafflingly dark anarchic pronouncements about bunkering down in the moors, suicide and the Baader-Meinhof abound... sometimes all at once and seemingly a propos of not very much other than to lend to a sense of this being some kind of soundtrack to the End Times. One of the very best of his Head Heritage oeuvre - if you liked You Gotta Problem With Me or Black Sheep, don't hesitate.
