Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing. 2011 solo album from the Rage Against The Machine guitarist. This self-produced effort is a change of pace from the usual acoustic offerings of past Nightwatchman albums, with the record featuring a full electric backing band called The Freedom Fighter Orchestra. In describing the record, Morello states, ''Troubled times call out for troubled songs. World Wide Rebel Songs is an album of rousing hopelessness and this time The Nightwatchman has brought along his electric guitar to tip the scales. I wanted to capture a vibe midway between Johnny Cash and Che Guevara, murder ballads and Molotov anthems.''

5.0 out of 5 stars The rightful heir to the mantle of Joe Strummer September 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tom Morello is the rightful heir to the mantle of Joe Strummer. He is uncompromising in both his politics and his music. Worldwide Rebel Songs expands upon the material and range of musical styles he debuted on his first two LPs and his Union Town EP. On Rebel Songs Mr. Morello is unafraid to experiment with different musical styles and combinations, the reuults may not always be music perfection but his warmth and genuine love for his material carries it through. In this respect, Mr. Morello joines Bruce Springsteen and Steve Earle as one of the few artists who should be readily forgiven for the occasional awkaward lyric because the authentic emotion behind it is so obvious. My personal favorites here are "Save the Hammer for the Man" a duet with Ben Harper, the rabble-rousing anthem, "It Begins Tonight" and his ode to his guitar, "Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine." If you liked the other 2.5 Nightwatchman albums or are a fan of Joe Strummer or Tim Armstrong, this is your album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but not the Morello Everyone Knows September 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Personally, I am a fan of anything Morello...Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Street Sweeper Social Club. But, as the Nightwatchman, Tom's style vastly differs from his other acts, even from his previous Nightwatchman albums such as One Man Revolution and The Fabled City. This time Morello uses a full electric band to back his act, and the combination sounds amazing. Tracks such as the Fifth Horseman of Apocalypse and Stray Bullets are thought-provoking, well-constructed, and have hauntingly brilliant melodies. An instant favorite is It Begins Tonight - its soul-shredding guitar riffs and solo are reminiscent of Rage and Audioslave. Tom also mixes it up with slower, quieter tracks such as God Help us All, and even shows some country influence in songs like Save the Hammer for the Man, which features Ben Harper.

To put it simply, if you like Tom Morello, buy this album. If you don't really know Tom Morello, preview the album a little, then buy it. Tom's musicianship will continue to grow on you - it is impossible not to appreciate him.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT BEGINS TONIGHT! September 2, 2011
By James
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
THE NIGHTWATCHMAN'S BEST WORK YET!

Looking for an album from an artist who actually believes the music he writes? World Wide Rebel Songs is that album! Tom Morello brings guitar fury to the folk genre that really hasn't been seen before. It all starts from the first song and progresses onward. I'm going comment specifically on the songs I know the meaning to and like off the album.

1. BLACK SPARTACUS HEART ATTACK MACHINE - A great love song about his new steel string guitar. Yes, I know what you are saying "The Nightwatchman doesn't write love songs!" I was surprised as well but it's truly a great song.

3. IT BEGINS TONIGHT - A rocking jam that you could just imagine people belting out of their lungs as they protest their rights being taken away by the government.

4. SAVE THE HAMMER FOR THE MAN - Here are The Nightwatchman's exact words regarding this song. "Ben (Harper) and I have been friends for some time, and he's been very generous and performed at a number of benefit shows that I put on, including the last Justice tour. We had some problems getting a few people for some of the shows, and Ben sent me an e-mail saying, 'Dude, let me know if you want me to put the hammer down.' And I wrote back and said, 'Ben, save the hammer for The Man.'" From that this song was born featuring none other than Ben Harper.

6. SPEAK AND MAKE LIGHTNING - The Nightwatchman plays an epic solo on his Arm The Homeless guitar for this track (yes he names every guitar he has if you didn't already know that).

3.0 out of 5 stars wordswordswords September 3, 2011
By Tora
Format:Audio CD
Where previous Nightwatchman releases primarily featured Morello as an acoustic troubadour, his latest proffers more group interplay, at times recalling aspects of his other projects. "It Begins Tonight" bisects shamelessly heavy riffing with Bo Diddley beats, while "Union Town" hybridizes Morello's trademark turntablist-influenced shredding with a chorus ready-made for protest marches; "Facing Mount Kenya," meanwhile, balances personal introspection and political insight with sparse, atmospheric trip-hop. Surprisingly, the most appealing element here proves to be Morello's voice -- a weary, Leonard Cohen-esque rasp that makes all the sloganeering seem oddly soothing. That human element is what makes "World Wide Rebel Songs" compelling, and ultimately cathartic: What Morello lacks in subtlety, he makes up for in visceral feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed point of view September 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a big fan of Rage Against the Machine, but I love this album. Morello really expands his audience and hopefully his influence on spreading the word: about honest work, good pay, reasonable benefits, and the importance of unions to help realize those goals for everyone--regardless if you are a member or not. It's a voice that's largely missing in today's political, historical, social, and cultural centers of thought. Having seen Morello on his tour with Wayne Kramer and Tom McIlrath in Cleveland recently, I'd have to say the message was received. Thankfully and willingly. I just hope that Morello's message (along with the support of McIlrath's Rise Against and Kramer) gets the hearing it deserves. And I hope that union leaders will pay attention to Morello and incorporate his work into their messaging. They need it and he can help. Excellent and highly recommended for the message, passion, and talent it encompasses.

Tom Morello talks the talk and walks the walk. His rock style suits his songs perfectly. I love that he wrote a song about the demonstrations in Madison, Wisconsin.
