Various Artists The Fire This Time
- Words: Tamara Palmer
- Label: Hidden Art
Here's a relative anomaly for electronic music-a compilation with both a conscience and a detailed tale to tell. The future fate of the Iraqi people is a troubling subject that gets swept under the rug in the mass media. The Fire This Time is a detailed narrative of the genocidal damage done under US sanctions since the elder Bush's Gulf War set to an electronic soundtrack. A second disc provides just the music without the narration and story, with highlights from Orbital, Aphex Twin and Tom Middleton's Amba project. It is a worthy backdrop to the substantial research that went into this effort. If only electronic music could boast more releases of this weight.
