Fourth release by Detroit quartet Suicide Machines
, "Steal this Record
" is the most diverse
album I have ever listened to.
Starting out ominous and dark then quickly contorting to a light, but determined, mix of reggae and ska, then to hard ass-kicking rock, Steal this Record takes you on an emotional and sonic rollercoaster.
Recommended listening from Steal this Record include:"The Air we Breathe"
"Honor Among Thieves"
"Steal this Record"
"It's the End of the World as we Know It" (REM cover)
Steal this Record:
"Neatly polish up a package-Do you think you have it?
Just a product dressed to impress-Did you press a plastic abscess?
Is there anything left? -Rhetoric uninspired theft
It's all burning with nothingness-I'm so sick of your voices.
(Chorus):Riot-Rebellion for sale.
Buy it-Devoid of anything real.
Riot-Rebellion for sale.
The revolution will be televised-Bought and sold and advertised
Who's the real charlatan-The pusher man pushin'- Or did the writer lie?
Your validity nullified- Do you consume the con-Do you sing along?
I'm not for sale no-I'm not for sale no-I'm not for sale no-These words aren't for sale no-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale.
I'm not for sale no-I'm not for sale no-I'm not for sale no-These words aren't for sale no
Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-This I know-Everything is for sale-Everything is for sale-Evrything is for sale-This I know
But are you buying-Are you selling-That's the question
Are you buyin'-Are you sellin'-That's the question
I'm not buyin'-Into and-I'm not buyin'-Into this"
