Customer Review

on 23 January 2013
The latest Warrior Soul album is yet another hard rock / punk punch to the ears.

The Occupy protests are a clear influence on Kory's lyrics here, and many of the tracks keep up his trademark rants against capitalist corporate greed, wars for oil, the treatment of ordinary Americans and the Republicrats in general.

It opens with 'Occupy', with Kory speaking the verses (I quite like his poetry stuff, I know some people don't get it). Then into 'Planetary Revolution', as good a Warrior Soul Track as any from the early period. Tracks like 'A Drink To All My Friends' and 'Tear' keep up the punky end of the offering - with 'Junky Stripper' and its almost grungy sound bringing a different bite. '2012' and 'Wall Street' maintain the political theme as you go through, adding contrails conspiracy to the mix in the former (I personally don't agree with that or the 9/11 truther thing Kory has going, but the songs are good anyway). One of my favourites is 'Sparkle Baby', with the swirling riffs and catchy lyrics. The last two tracks are anthemic - Rubicon being about the world Kory wants to see, and 'Light Your Bonfires' being what it would replace.

I'd rank it close to the first album, which has a similar mix of tracks and hooked me on their sound. There have been better WS albums, but only by a shade. If you've never heard them before, Stiff Middle Finger isn't a bad place to start. If you have, then this is exactly what you should expect.
