The Lost Children Of Babylon The 911 Report: The Ultimate Conspiracy
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Babygrande
Nearly five years after 9/11, the Babylon ciphers have something on their minds: breaking our numbness to violence by voicing the human heartbreak that is a consequence of politics. Lyrical ingenuity aside, vibrating pulses of sadness and jolts of deep anger permeate this album, mostly in the form of haunting melodies and passionate anti-Bush attacks. When "Never Die" intones "I‘d rather go to hell before they send me to the war/Never know what you fightin‘ for," you can appreciate the forum that hip-hop first cracked open for other unpopular views many years ago.
