Editorial Reviews

Spectre is Laibach's first studio album since 2006's Volk, and the follow up the original sound track for Iron Sky (dir. Timo Vuorensola, 2012) and Reproduction Prohibited, a collection of Laibach's interpretations of songs.

The new album sees Laibach once again 're-inventing' itself in a newly born, yet polished and solid formation. And, as is now their custom, Laibach calls into question all the rigid and cemented interpretations (and prejudices) about itself, about its music, intentions, philosophy and ideology.
With Spectre, Laibach has created a big, important and almost dangerous step forward; it seems that this time the band has fatally crossed the Rubicon. On this album the group which has never defined itself politically, but has, nevertheless, constantly analyzed politics through its work comes across as politically engaged as never before. Spectre sounds like a political manifesto manifest in poetic form, titles and lyrics couldn't be more direct. With these lyrics and songs, Laibach, who has always given a controversial impression or an impression of controversy especially in terms of its political orientation, is now very clearly taking a position on the political spectrum and probably irreversibly abolishing its own (to some extent quite comfortable) political 'freedom' and neutrality.

While I prefer most of Laibach's older works (Kapital, Laibach, Nova Akropola etc) I was pretty pleased to see that some of the sounds in this new album do call back to some of their previous work, many sections of it having a distinctly Kapital feel combined with their newer sensibilities, so as a long time fan I really appreciated that. I'm not a professional critic music critic, but I will say if you enjoy Laibach, especially their newer works, you will definitely enjoy this. It never ceases to amaze me how the band adapts and evolves with the passing of time.

Also, it's interesting to hear the band finally shed their previously, purposely vague and neutral political leanings and make a stand. To quote another, far more succinct critic: "Yes, things are so bad in the world today that even Laibach aren’t comfortable sitting back and taking the piss anymore."

Laibach's first studio album in 8 years, Spectre offers up a stunning collection of songs utilizing some very creative samples and synths - however, some of the best instruments on Spectre are the vocals. Laibach frontman Milan Fras effectively channels Yello's Dieter Meier so much that at times it feels like I'm listening to new Yello material. Much credit can also be given to Mina Špiler, a female singer who basically takes turns with Milan for almost half the album, sometimes on her own and sometimes a male/female duet. In this regard Spectre likens to SPKs "Gold and Poison..." with Spectre having a far better outcome. Spectre is a fitting title for Laibach's latest offering....oozing with gritty beauty that haunts the soul after listens. Album highlights include "Americana", "No History", "Eurovision", "Resistance is Futile", the kinetic "Bossanova" and the mesmerizing "Koran" to conclude the album. Spectre represents the album of 2014 thus far - it is brilliant!

This album contains some strong songs in the Laibach dance industrial tradition. Walk With Me in places best evokes the early Laibach sound back when they were truly underground. Eurovision and Resistance are Futile are entertaining bombast as we expect from them.

On the hand there are signs of sloppiness and shallowness, and some very odd things like Eat Liver, which sounds like a get up and party song collided with the Kidney Thieves. A couple tracks only manage to be catchy in a way I can tell will grate on repeat listens (Bossanova for example. Nice snare drums!).

Regarding the editorial review for this unequaled artist group, the writer of that editorial is obviously some prejudiced conservative American who is dreaming the idea that somehow Laibach has damaged its existence with the publication of this album. Hint: Go to YouTube and look up the Speech in Seattle in '04 ... you will see where this attitude is coming from.
