This review is from: Never Breathe What You Can't See (Audio CD)
Biafra is one of the most important people ever in the history of political music. His record label has constantly released innovative works from unusual artists alongside commentaries from prominent political characters. He has also wriiten some of the best punk music and political lyrics that i know of. This is a typically genius pieice of work. Biafra plays with many ideas, analysing the ridiculous consequences of the war on terror and world debt (Islamic Bomb) as well as the absurdity of the US's tightened security (The Lighter Side of Global Terrorism). It is all done with typical class and he has rarely sounded so passionate. The Melvins are of course a great backing band and contribute some blinding music. Caped Crusader is the most musically enjoyable piece but they only really go full-pelt Melvin mental on the final track, totally unlike anything Biafra has been a part of before. Also, Adam Jones of Tool plays on the odd track and his presence can truly be felt at certain points. All in all a fresh album, with a refreshingly modern poltical outlook (no need to pull out an MDC record now!) that comes thoroughly recommended.
