On the heels of Audioslave's final album "Revelations," (2006) guitarist Tom Morello is back with his first solo album, "One Man Revolution" (2007) under the moniker "The Watchman."

"One Man Revolution" is kind of like Morello's own "Ghost of Tom Joad" (1995). Sounding nothing at all like Rage Against the Machine or Audioslave, "One Man Revolution" is an acoustic and semi-acoustic album, with RATM-like themes addressing injustice and inequality. It's a sort of loosely based concept album, with Morello playing the role of "The Watchman," who in Morello's words is a "black Robin Hood."

While the album is rather laid-back, it still manages to pack a good punch. Morello's rough baritone voice can carry a tune and he's really into his character. While political concept albums can sometimes come across as preachy or naïve, this isn't really a problem here. Lyrically, Morello strikes a good balance, avoiding sounding simplistic on one hand, or a full-of himself, know-it-all on the other.

"One Man Revolution" has a very organic, home-made feel, as Morello plays every instrument, with the help of producer Brendan O'Brien. And while "One Man Revolution" is pretty straight-forward, Morello manages to throw out some interesting curve-balls, like the Celtic sounding "The Road I Must Travel."

If you're expecting something like RATM or Audioslave, you may be disappointed with "One Man Revolution." However, if you want to hear something a little different from Morello, check with album out.

I have to be honest, I really wasn't expecting to like this album, even after hearing "The Road I Must Travel" for the first time. I love Tom Morello, don't get me wrong, but something just seemed strange to me having him doing a solo album. I was a little concerned about how his voice would sound considering he is not a singer, and secondly I love Morello's crazy riffs and solos. I mean thats what he is known for and what makes him so incredible. To my surprise, this album has grown on me and is quite good, if you take it for what is. His voice is what really surprised me. I've heard him speak many times and I didn't expect his singing voice to sound this good. Don't get me wrong, he won't even be in league with the great singers of our generation, but his voice really suits the music quite well actually.

If anything, this album shows the Morello is not a one trick pony. Not only can he make good acoustic music that sounds nothing even remotely similiar to RATM or Audislave. But it also shows that he can write compelling music. I think the most intriging aspect of the album is the lyrics themselves. Some of it might be mildly repetitive and I think some of the album could of used a little more diversity in how it sounds overall, but other than that its a very good, solid album. This really is not my kind of music, yet Morello makes it interesting. I think the only question left to me is, "Can one man really be a revolution?"

Tom Morello aka:THE NIGHTWATCHMAN's debut solo album "One Man Revolution" is a folk/protest music masterpiece! I read in rollingstone magazine a few weeks back that Tom Morello has come out with a solo album full of folk/protest songs and as a huge RATM fan and folk musician/fan myself I was stoked about the very idea. I imediately went to my local music store and picked it up(it hasn't left my cd player since). If your a fan of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg and the great un-heard Patrick Fitzgerald then your gonna love this album. If you care at all about the state of society/government and feel alone in your want and need for change in this dark grey world then your gonna love this album. If your not blind and can see that uncle sam is fooling you with fear and materialism to prime you up for much darker things to come then your gonna love this album. If you don't care about any of these things and your happy to be stuck in your way, don't really care for the message in music and think your government is spending billions apon billions of hard earned tax payers dollars on a neverending war just to keep you safe and free then don't even bother with this album. Go fill up the tank in your nice new SUV and throw something useless into your cd player and continue to be oblivious to what's truly going on in the world around you.

And thats not really a bad thing. One thing is for sure, If you are looking for an extension of Rage or the far inferior Audioslave, you have come to the wrong place. This is far more Dylan and Woody Guthrie than it is pounding rock beats.
Personally I think this is the music that our generation has been waiting for. Falling firmly into that tricky Genre of "protest music", this actually comes off as Genuine. Much of the protest music for our generation, such as Green Day, feels like an old artist trying to stay cool and relevant. Morello's new album feels the opposite. In fact, he has almost guaranteed himself no airplay and low album sales. This is very unsubtle, we need to change the world music. But its greatest strenght is that he has rediscovered the idea that made Dylan and Guthrie so good. Dont spend all of your time pointing fingers at who has done bad by you. Instead, he tells the people to stand up and fight for the wrongs of the world. Open your eyes, get up and change the world. Good job Tom.
