Editors’ Notes

Having existed in one form or another for more than 30 years, Laibach have always made music that's deliberately difficult listening. Now they've become “politically engaged as never before,” according to the press materials for 2014’s Spectre. Coming from a collective that have used both fascist and communist ideas (and anything else considered controversial) in their imagery and language, it hardly seems new for Laibach to acknowledge current events of any kind. SPECTRE concerns a global terrorist organization in the world of James Bond, and “The Whistleblowers” is said to allude “to the heroism of the new digital Prometheans of freedom—Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden, Julian Assange.” The music is similarly cold, heavy, and martial. Beats pound, synthesizers signal doom, and triggered sounds add to the sense of the apocalypse. Looking for the musical angle, “Eat Liver!,” “Walk with Me,” “Bossanova," and “Koran” promote Laibach’s female co-vocalist Mina Spiler to the forefront for, if not a gentler worldview, an easier-to-digest sense of melody that suggests it’s not always "All Work and No Play"—or at least it doesn’t sound like it is.

Customer Reviews

Taking hits for absurdity...

... and when has Laibach EVER delivered what people expected? NEVER. Place tongue firmly in cheek, listen to the lyrics and recognize the entertainment... The first three songs are worth it. A Rebelious band? That's cliché. A Rebelious band that sounds sarcastic and dramatic at the same time?... That's Laibach.

"We are Laibach. Resistance is futile."

A catchy and accessible, hit-laden pop album-for-the masses from Laibach? Not quite, but this one comes closer to being a crossover breakthrough than anything else they've done. Milan Fras' growls mesh well with the sultry female pop vocals from Mina Špiler, and the dirge and bombast has been toned down this time. The overall effect has Laibach firmly planted in KMFDM territory. Purists will decry the evolution of Laibach into musical populists, but then they're missing the point.


Since last year, I've been a huge Laibach fan (thanks, Iron Sky), but when I first heard this album, I thought it was their WORST ALBUM EVER. But over time, as I listened to it again and again, it sounded alot better as I listen to it. That's the one that I've noticed about Laibach albums. They're kind of like beer; when you first try it, it's completely awful, but as you get older, you get addicted to it.

Laibach is an industrial group whose members prefer to be known as a collective rather than reveal individual names; they've been seen as fascists and of practicing Germanophilia because of their music's Wagnerian thunder and their military attire. According to Laibach, "We are fascists as much as Hitler was a painter." Since fascism needs a scapegoat to flourish, the members of Laibach mocked it by becoming their own scapegoat and willingly sought alienation. Showing a ridiculous lust for authority,...
