If I sat on my local school board I would make the new L.O.T.I.O.N. Multinational Corporation‘s album W.A.R. In The Digital Realm a part of the school curriculum for K-12. For the younger kids, it would be an all-out dance party, but for the older kids, it would be a lesson in all the things they should be learning. I don’t sit on the school board but I am a parent of two young daughters and this is the kind of music that is being played in our home while they play Lego.
I’ve got to say, damn, L.O.T.I.O.N. have done it again because this album slams on so many levels! It will plug you into a reality that is hidden from the masses or they just might be too blind to see. Their songs will inject you with dance energy and at the same time turn y’all on to knowledge that all of us need to hear. When I hear songs like “Every Last One” with lyrics like “Accelerate When we separate The heads of the state Immediate decapitation,” or “The only good cop is a dead cop Dead cop Dead cop Immediate decapitation” — how could I not be an instant fan!!! When I hear Alex sing, “As the master plays Of torture of hate No way to live And worse no way to die,” on the song “I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream” it’s evident that our worldview is aligned. Musically speaking, imagine if Psychic TV Godstar era decided to collaborate with Atari Teenage Riot — the outcome might sound like W.A.R. In The Digital Realm.
The members of L.O.T.I.O.N. are passionate about what they are putting out and that’s why I love this release so much! I want to salute the band for manifesting music that truly matters and makes me dance and think in the process! Yo, good looking out to Toxic State Records and Static Shock Records for releasing W.A.R. In The Digital Realm.
