The West Against The People

Dirk Funk I appreciate the essay and the thoughtfulness of the lyrics here, as a whole I find this a very evocative piece of art. What keeps me coming back though, is the sense of progression. As the Your Government tracks end the percussion thins out in the latter half of the album, the tracks become more minimal and ponderous right up until the chaos of the final track, which always leaves me unsettled. Favorite track: My Executioner (feat Your Government).
