Various Artists Genocide In Sudan

The sweep of death and destruction in Sudan has been broad enough to move people across the world, so the range of artists on this album-the proceeds of which go to aid international aid agencies-makes sense. Admittedly, the track placement isn‘t always so cohesive-it is odd to hear the dubbed out "Truth and Rights" from Thievery Corporation right after the ragingly guitar-driven album opener, "N‹GUNS" from System of a Down. The result is an album that leaves eclectic in the dust (Yoko Ono, Bad Religion, The Pretenders [remixed] and X-ecutioners), but with Sudan so maimed, any help makes a difference.
