Listening to Volk album

Leave it to Laibach to touch on so many important issues.

The song "America" makes me very sad because they managed to express exactly how I feel about my country. I like how Milan's voice captures that feeling of despair.

His tone of voice is different in some of these songs. I'm used to his angry confrontational gruff voice. However in "America" and "Anglia," there's this sadness, disgust, despair and frustration in his voice. I think it's a good reflection of the frustration and disgust many people around the world feel towards those two countries.

Laibach as teachers

I apologize for the two posts being close together.

How many of you have learned things from Laibach?

I know I've learned many things from them. I've been listening to them since I was 15. At first I got into them because of their bad ass sound and German lyrics. Well, and I thought Milan Fras was pretty sexy. ;) I ended up wanting to know everything about his culture and his country and that helped me learn about other cultures and international politics. I also learned to question issues and leaders and not just take things at face value.
