anarchistic rabble or deep thought music?
on 30 August 2013
Tried this one on the strength of reviews and this group's excellent song titled 'Jacobs ladder', hoping for some well written intelligent music, but what is served up here is really chopped up and glued together rock-pop, all belted out at an excitable pace. It comes across as 'fast music', like fast food, catchy beats here and there but all lacking any real depth or quality. The music seems to be more about the lyrical content, or perhaps even the screeds of opinion reeled out in the booklet. It is mostly lacking in any well thought out, clever, or interesting melodies. As for the screeds of opinions expressed, as usual everything else and everything else is at fault, and as another song goes, 'look in the mirror then make the change'- but who wants to face personal responsibility for anything these days?
This album is a rabble, and probably the best thing of all IS its written screeds of opinion, for we still need people to point out and express some of the ridiculous hypocritical attitudes of modern politics and society. But the 'music' sucks.
