It's quite incredible that Justin and co still manage to produce valuable and exciting music after over a quarter of a century in the 'business'.
'Today' starts with what is possibly the heaviest song the Army have released since 'Here Comes The War', 'Today Is a Good Day' thunders out with rocking guitars and fierce vocals; whilst not being the strongest song on the album its a fine opener.
The production is great, less claustrophobic and dark than the excellent 'Carnival' and far meatier than the mighty 'High', it certainly reminds me of the atmosphere that 'Love of Hopeless Causes' created.
Stand out tracks (and certainly fan favourites) are the awesome 'Autumn', 'La Push' and the thunderingly good 'States Radio', all classic Army tunes and some of the best they have written for a long time.
There are though, in my opinion, 2 tracks though that bring the album down from classic status to being extremely good; 'Mambo Queen' is a fairly good but slightly dull rock song but doesn't really get the blood going, one for another 'B-Sides...' album methinks. The dodgy song here though is 'Bad Harvest', it sounds a bit of a confused mess and not finished, an odd track to include on what is otherwise a blinding album. Some may have noticed the inclusion of the Army's version of Justin Sullivans song 'Ocean Rising', its a great track but not that different form the 'Navigating By The Stars' original and I do feel slightly cheated that we didnt get an original track (but hey, tis a small gripe).
All in all though a cracker and one that Army fans will embrace and love.
Im off to see Justin and Dean play at the Garage tonight, hope they do a few acoustic versions from the 'Today'...
There look and attitude is not unlike that of Kirk Coban's Nivarna, abiet some years earlier. Throughout their 30 year journey they have never compromised themselves and stayed true to their ethical views and beliefs (A rare and refreshing accomplishment). These guys were green before green become fashionable.
Both in sound and vision there is a rare sincerity, truth and honesty about this band which is delivered with heart felt edgy passion. Their apocalyptic imagery and cynical view is both radical and thought provoking. Their nightmarish sounds and visions of the future are described with such clarity and pinpoint accuracy that it puts Nostradamus to shame. Athough the primevil and hellish landscape from which there were born and influenced there early recordings has mellowed over the years
It's a tragedy and crime that the general public are unaware of this bands existence. You will never hear this band on the radio; rarely see them on you T.V, they receive little or no press coverage and are overlooked by the pompous festival circuit. Yet they can sell out venues all over the UK and Europe and still mange the occasional top 40 hit (if they so chose) with little or no promotion . Specific lyrical references, coupled with visa problems, unfortunately ensure that they are all but ignored in the U.S.
The music of NMA is a way of life and this comes across in the beauty and compassionate yet aggressive melodies in their compositions.Read more ›
Back to the album... there is a real mixture here starting with the heavier title track through to acoustic numbers. If you have liked NMA at all in the past or are a fan of independent music (proper music rather than the garbage thrown at us by the media) then I am sure there will be something for you here. This band have been underrated over the years and deserve more acclaim, they have always had, and still have a unique sound. I'm glad I bought the album and followed it up with the gig - worth every penny!

NMA are one of my all-time favourite bands - been so since '85, but this is their worst album yet. I have tried to like it, given it my best shot, but to no avail. Read morePublished on 19 Aug. 2010 by X93250617
