Morello’s the true standout. His guitar on “Clap” has sweet, heavy sound that is slightly distorted. On the bridge of “Somewhere In The World It’s Midnight” he makes the strings sing and squeal. “Megablast” finds him putting the effects peddles to good use as the guitar sound changes throughout. The album closes with one of the better tracks. “Nobody Moves Til We Say Go.” It has an awesome heavy bass line driving the song and a great shout-along chorus, perfect for bouncing to at concerts. He continues to be one of this era’s outstanding guitarists and his fans will be ecstatic to hear his much welcomed return to form.
Morello told The Onion, “We’re there to feed the poor, fight the power, and rock the fuck out.” On the latter, they are a great success, making an album worth hearing for the music but not for listening to the lyrics. Play it loud and make sure if you don’t have room to get up and dance, you at least have room to bob your head.
