Fiction

1984 by George Orwell

1984 by George Orwell

Brave New World Aldous Huxley,Huxley s vision of the future in his astonishing 1931 novel Brave New World—a world of tomorrow in which capitalist civilization has been reconstituted through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering, where the people are genetically designed to be passive, consistently useful to the ruling class.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

The monumental Hugo and Nebula award winning SF classic— Featuring a new introduction by John Scalzi The Earth's leaders have drawn a line in the interstellar sand—despite the fact that the fierce alien enemy they would oppose is inscrutable, unconquerable, and very far away. A reluctant conscript drafted into an elite Military unit, Private William Mandella has been propelled through space and time to fight in the distant thousand-year conflict; to perform his duties and do whatever it takes to survive the ordeal and return home. But "home" may be even more terrifying than battle, because, thanks to the time dilation caused by space travel, Mandella is aging months while the Earth he left behind is aging centuries...

The Forever War by Joe Haldeman

Internationally acclaimed with more than 5 million copies in print, Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury′s classic novel of censorship and defiance, as resonant today as it was when it was first published nearly 50 years ago.

Fehrenheir 451 by Ray Bradbury

London 1975. The World War is grinding to a halt. A malignant force more sinister than Hitler s Nazi regime has seized control of Europe and is systematically destroying every adversary   In the heart of France, a crack unit of renegade soldiers has overcome all opposition under the leadership of one man, a hardened military strategists highly trained in every method of combat known only as the Lieutenant   Ordered by his superiors to return to British Headquarters, located in a vast underground fortress commanded by politically correct staff officers, the Lieutenant is torn between abiding by military codes and doing what he knows is right for his country   Upon reaching embattled England, the Lieutenant and his men, freshly supplied and re-equipped, come face to face with both the incumbent forces of tyranny and a technologically advanced power in a climactic battle for freedom

Final Blackout by L. Ron Hubbard

A timeless satire packed with biting political and social commentary that has been called Hubbard's magnum opus, the Mission Earth decalogy has sold more than 7.5 million copies in 14 languages worldwide. Witty, insightful, and utterly readable, this grand saga is just as timely today as it was when initially released in 1985. Hubbard's classic Battlefield Earth is like a short story compared to this ambitious -- and historic -- ten-volume, 1.2 million-word chronicle.

Mission Earth by L. Ron Hubbard

It is a tale of revolution, of the rebellion of the former Lunar penal colony against the Lunar Authority that controls it from Earth. It is the tale of the disparate people—a computer technician, a vigorous young female agitator, and an elderly academic—who become the rebel movement's leaders. And it is the story of Mike, the supercomputer whose sentience is known only to this inner circle, and who for reasons of his own is committed to the revolution's ultimate success. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is one of the high points of modern science fiction, a novel bursting with politics, humanity, passion, innovative technical speculation, and a firm belief in the pursuit of human freedom.

The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein

 

 


Music

Admittedly, it's strange that an old school-sounding punk trio would criticize punk scene denizens thusly: "Covered in leather, or plaid patches, or metal studs/Your hair is dyed or spiked with glue/You only talk to those who look and act the way you do/You scoff at how the cops treat you/But they're no worse than dicks like you!"

Anti-Flag: Die for the Government

As obnoxious and confrontational as ever, Anti-Flag leave no doubts about which side of the fence they're on with A New Kind of Army, the follow-up to their cult hit, Die for the Government. Their style isn't markedly different, but it will definitely please the genre faithful.

Anti-Flag: A New Kind of Army

As WTO has proven, the revolution will indeed be televised, and judging by Underground Network, Anti-Flag's anthemic songs will be wafting across the frontlines. From their earliest days, the group have worn their politics proudly on their sleeve, a shared belief which has seen them through lineup changes and expansion from trio to a quartet. Some things have changed over time, however, both sonically and lyrically.

Anti-Flag: Underground Network

Political punk rock has always felt pressure from society because of the extreme reaction many have to extreme political ideas. A good example of this situation was what Anti-Flag went through in the wake of the September 11th tragedy. Their name was viewed as "un-American" by many, and they found themselves on the receiving end of a minor album ban. On top of that, their anti-violence stance was very unpopular in the revenge-happy environment immediately following the attacks.

Anti-Flag: Mobilize

Though adamantly anti-major-label at one point in their career, Anti-Flag finally decided to emerge from the underground and make the leap from the indie world to the realms of RCA in April 2005. Thus, after being together for over ten years and boasting almost as many releases, For Blood and Empire marks Anti-Flag's entry into the big leagues. Fans and naysayers alike couldn't help but question the band's new label status leading up to the album's release.

Anti-Flag: For Blood and Empire

Anti-Flag have been explicitly political punks from their earliest days, so the political themes of their eighth album, The Bright Lights of America, are entirely to be expected. What's different about this effort is not its topicality but its ambition and artistic reach: in some ways, it's the Pittsburgh band's equivalent to Green Day's American Idiot.

Anti-Flag: The Bright Lights of America

Ditching the slick production of For Blood and Empire and the especially glossy Tony Visconti produced Bright Lights of America for the grimier People or the Gun, their tenth album plays more like early day Rancid than latter day Green Day. That's not to say that they've toned down their unpatriotic American Idiot viewpoints. There's no sense Bush-bashing after George W. has left office, but there's still a lot to address, especially with the economy left in shambles. "The Economy Is Suffering -- Let It Die" speaks on this topic directly, stating that bail-out proposals only help the CEOs, banks, and corporate lawyers who caused the economy to crash; not the common people who actually need it.

Anti-Flag: The People or the Gun

It seems that Bad Religion's eighth LP is a rare case of selling out in reverse. Having signed to the big bad major wolf ("what big teeth you have, Grandma Atlantic"), the bandmembers seem too intent on showing their fans they're not going wimpy, so they turn their back on the advances of Generator and Recipe for Hate in order to bring back the naked aggression.

Bad Religion: Stranger Than Fiction

Rock-rap only seems to make it when it comes primarily from the rock side. Ask Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, or Vernon Reid. The kids like the swagger, they like the bravado, but they aren't so hot for the grit, at least not genuine grit that comes from a genuinely oppressed life. Hopefully the very real Flipsyde can change all that, but half of what makes We the People a great album might also keep it off the charts. Deep social commentary doesn't get you on the radio, but catchy hooks do. Flipsyde are good on both counts, making their album accessible with the choruses and validating the included lyric sheet with their verse. They're mostly hip-hop on the vocal level and mostly rock in their instrumentation, but it's not all that simple, as Bad Boy-style beats support "Revolutionary Beat," while "Angel" features a Dave Matthews-esque singalong. Flipsyde excel at urgent social commentary and songs about day-to-day struggle, but they offer hope, too. Getting away from it all never had a better soundtrack than "Skippin' Stones," while "Time" is lively and cool enough to sound like it fell off a Black Eyed Peas album. More than the poppy Peas or the rougher rock-rappers of days past, Flipsyde owe a lot to Living Colour. They're as exciting, angry, and hungry and they feel like an honest to goodness band. One wishes the album's clean production would have let their edge cut deeper, but as debuts go, it's an engaging success.

Fight with Tools also feels like a college class project partly because it's so clean but also because it's incredibly busy with ambition and new ideas overflowing as everything and the kitchen sink get thrown into the record. This youthful ambition and willingness to explore is also what makes the record special. The Denver crew enter by spitting out a Gil Scott-Heron by way of Def Poetry Jam bit of prose on the opening "There's a War Going on for Your Mind," offering surreal lines like "It's raining pornography/Lovers take shelter" over melancholy chamber music.

Flobots: Fight With Tools

For their sophomore album, Survival Story, Flobots turned up their amps to show off their range and their Rage Against the Machine and Tool influences, which made them sound more like Linkin Park or P.O.D.

Flobots: Survival Story

Linkin Park's debut sounded tense, nervous, and wiry -- rap-rock without the maliciousness that pulsed through Limp Bizkit. But it had been a full seven years between Hybrid Theory and Minutes to Midnight, and many fans who were getting their driver's licenses in 2000 were now leaving college and, along with it, adolescent angst. So Linkin Park jumped headfirst into maturity on Minutes to Midnight, which doesn't really rock, it broods. Still, the band demonstrates the chops they need to rock, and sound comfortable doing it.

Lowkey: Soundtrack to the Struggle

Lowkey: Soundtrack to the Struggle

Lowkey (born Kareem Dennis, 23 May 1986[1]) is a musician, poet, playwright and political activist of English and Iraqi descent.[2] He first came to fame through a series of mixtapes he released before he was 18,[3] before taking a hiatus from the music business. He would return in 2008 with wider music coverage, featured on BBC Radio[4][5] and appearing at various festivals and concerts including the Electric Proms,[6] Glastonbury, T In The Park and Oxygen[7] in the build up to his first solo album, as well as collaborating with other famous English musicians to form a supergroup.

Lowkey: Uncensored

Lasers is an acronym for "Love Always Shines Everytime: Remember to Smile," and the album is a reflection of a 14-point manifesto the Chicago-born MC composed to guide him on the project, including items like "We want substance in the place of popularity" and "We will not compromise who we are to be accepted by the crowd." Lasers features some of the most thought-provoking rhymes and concepts Fiasco has ever conceived, combined with irresistible melodies, production by the likes of Jerry Wonder and The Neptunes, as well as collaborations with John Legend, Trey Songz, and others.

Lupe Fiasco: Lasers

The Resistance is most certainly extravagant -- there are snatches of classical piano entwined throughout, not to mention bilingual lyrics, concert hall percussion, coronet solos, and song titles like "Exogenesis: Symphony, Pt. 2 (Cross-Pollination)" -- but it's also quite beautiful, capable of moving between prog rock choruses and excerpts from Chopin's "Nocturne in E Flat Major" within the same song. Presiding over the mix is frontman Matthew Bellamy, a man who seemingly aspires to be both Brian May and Freddie Mercury.

Muse: The Resistance

The Offspring's second album for Epitaph did the impossible: it landed in the Top Five, unheard of for independent records. The Offspring crossed over due to the raucous, Eastern-tinged single "Come Out and Play," which stopped and started just like Nirvana, only without the Seattle trio's recklessness.

The Offspring: Smash

Here it is...finally. One Day as a Lion are Zack de la Rocha, lead vocalist (and current as of July 2008) for Rage Against the Machine, and Jon Theodore, former drummer with the Mars Volta. De la Rocha and Theodore have been reportedly working on this project since 2006. The end result is a volatile mix of rhythm, noise, and radical poetry. De la Rocha is no stranger to the great political poets; his brand of rapping and freestyling has always been saturated with their influence as well as his own constantly evolving political thought.

One Day As A Lion EP

After Operation Ivy called it quits at the end of the '80s, Lookout put together this compilation of all of the recorded studio material ever released by the group. Much like Minor Threat's Complete Discography, this follows the recorded history of a band that burnt out quickly and had a relentlessly creative view of punk music. The underground classics are all here: "Take Warning," "Unity," "Freeze Up," "Junkie's Runnin' Dry," and 23 other prime tracks. Being one of the first bands to pursue the ska punk sound in California, Operation Ivy was a trailblazer in a genre that quickly became generic due to a glut of like-minded artists. But this should not be held against the group because they made fantastic music for the short time they existed. The CD comes complete with the lyrics to all of the songs, and several good pictures of the band. Countless bands would ape this sound without any creative improvement throughout the '90s, and two of the members would go on to lead the more punk-influenced Rancid. This might be the best ska punk collection by a single band committed to disc, and anyone with even a passing interest in the genre should do themselves a favor and buy this album right away.

Payday Monsanto: The Patent

With the 2011 release of his third album, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades), rapper Pharoahe Monch halved the eight-year wait fans endured between his first and second efforts. This strong, satisfying, often stunning third release proves he can deliver the goods under this tighter release schedule, and when listening to lyrics that are topical for 2011 ("†Calculated Amalgamation†" is inspired by the recent Egyptian revolution), one begins to wonder if it†s been three years off for Monch, and then one very strong year back on.

Pharoahe Monk: W.A.R. (We Are Renegades)

Probably the first album to successfully merge the seemingly disparate sounds of rap and heavy metal, Rage Against the Machine's self-titled debut was groundbreaking enough when released in 1992, but many would argue that it has yet to be surpassed in terms of influence and sheer brilliance -- though countless bands have certainly tried. This is probably because the uniquely combustible creative relationship between guitar wizard Tom Morello and literate rebel vocalist Zack de la Rocha could only burn this bright, this once.

Rage Against The Machine

Rage Against the Machine spent four years making its second album, Evil Empire. Their rage at the "fascist" capitalist system in America hadn't declined in the nearly half-decade they were away. Their musical approach didn't change, either. Lead vocalist Zack de la Rocha is caught halfway between the militant raps of Chuck D and the fanatical ravings of a street preacher, shouting out his libertarian slogans over the sonically dense assault of the band. Guitarist Tom Morello demonstrates an impressive palette of sound, creating new textures in heavy metal, which is quite difficult, and de la Rocha's dedication to decidedly left-wing politics is admirable, simply because few other performers of the '90s had made any sort of political stance. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi All Music Guide

Rage Against the Machine: Evil Empire

On its third album, THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES, the band expands upon its combustive rap-metal foundation, flavoring "Guerrilla Radio" with a guitar-generated "harmonica" solo, upping the burning funk quotient on "Calm Like a Bomb," and embellishing "Mic Check" with skittering beats, echoing feedback, and a staccato chorus that sounds not unlike electronica kingpins Prodigy.

Rage Against the Macine: The Battle Of Los Angeles

Most serious musicians, at some point in their careers, take the time to tip their hats to those who inspired them -- and maybe even kick a few bucks in royalties their way in the process. So it's not too surprising that Rage Against the Machine are marking the end of the first phase in their career with a covers collection, paying the same kind of homage to sonic influences as they've previously bestowed upon socio-political ones.

Rage Against the Machine: Renegades

Playing the seedier, more street-wizened Stones to Green Day's pop-savvy Beatles, this Bay Area quartet has proven itself to be one of the few third-wave punk bands with verifiable staying power. After emerging from the ashes of underground icon Operation Ivy, Rancid took a while to hit its stride, but this 1995 release stands as a loud 'n' proud statement of purpose.

Rancid: ...And Out Come the Wolves

Rancid never win any points for originality, but originality isn't their goal. Rancid want to be, to quote an old Clash slogan, "the only band that matters."

Rancid: Life Won’t Wait

Rancid's seventh album, 2009's Let the Dominos Fall, was released a full six years after Indestructible. In that time much changed in the world (and the band swapped drummers, with Branden Steineckert stepping in for Brent Reed) but not a whole lot changed with the band's sound. Sure, there were a few cosmetic differences here and there but the fire, spirit, and strength the band exhibited since their debut in the early '90s hasn't faded at all. The first four songs on the album showcase everything that's right about the band.

Rancid: Let the Dominoes Fall

Rebel Inc.

Rebel Inc.

Rise Against's somewhat sudden major label-ness has slightly diluted their direct assault on melodic hardcore, but the adjustment should only invite more sugar punkers to the Chicago combo's bittersweet party. Rise Against has moved up in the sonic nicety department -- loud rock vet GGGarth produces, and the Andy Wallace mix is a flawless cross section of thick, grit, and slick. But Siren Song of the Counter Culture is simply the band's latest statement, combining their significant yet not unwelcome Bad Religion influence with nods to the rousing choruses of peers like A.F.I.

Rise Against: Siren Song of the Counter Culture

The Sufferer & the Witness finds Rise Against continuing on the path begun on 2004's well-received Siren Song of the Counter Culture. Their melodic hardcore may still sound more mainstream accessible, but this can hardly be looked at as a bad thing. After all, the band's sincerity and passion emerge very much intact -- their socially conscious approach no less pressing -- and new and old fans alike should take to Sufferer with open arms. With producers Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore manning the controls this time around, the band's inner grit is aptly drawn out amid all the pit-ready choruses and fist-in-the-air, stirring lyrics.

Rise Against: The Sufferer & The Witness

If ever there was a year to release a political punk album it was 2008, when the U.S. was consumed by the wildest presidential campaign in modern history. It seems like the perfect backdrop for Rise Against to release Appeal to Reason, their third major-label record, and in a way it is -- certainly, the group rages against the moral decay rotting the core of the U.S. on the opening "Collapse (Post-Amerika)," just as they strike out against the slow dumbing down of America on "Re-Education (Of Labor)" and tell Iraqi soldier stories on "Hero of War." The latter showcases the acoustic guitars that helped goose 2006's The Sufferer & the Witness into the Billboard Top Ten but the rest boast the manic rapid-fire hardcore delivery that hearkens back to Rise Against's politically minded forefathers Bad Religion. This balance of plaintive modern folk and carefully traditional protest punk is offset by Rise Against's increasingly strong fondness for heavy, slick production, the kind where the rhythms are too tight and the guitars overdriven and clean, the kind where it sounds more like '80s metal than '80s punk.

Sweatshop Union, The Bill Murray EP

Sweatshop Union: The Bill Murray EP

Over the course of 15 tracks, the quartet wax fiercely political (on the ominous "Prison Song"), starkly personal (on the shuddering sex-and-drugs diatribe "Psycho"), and downright madcap (on the utterly out-there "Chop Suey!"). As on the last outing, Serj Tankian's vocals are a love-'em-or-hate-'em proposition, but in terms of sheer intensity and message delivery, he's hard to top.
