Note to Self
No-fly list. No-drive list. No-walk list. No-talk list. No muckraking journalist left to take stock of the wholesale omission of outside... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Failed States is the band's best release to date.

    The band gives the songs greater depth rather than always putting the message right there on the surface, and this change allows the listener to dive into the songs to really absorb and understand them.

    Fans will debate whether Failed States tops previous records, but certainly meets the standards the band has set for themselves.

    This is easily one of their best albums, which is no small feat six albums into such an illustrious career.

    While scores of pop punk and emo bands continue to mope halfheartedly over lost love and childish transgressions, Propagandhi's tangible rage has always had eyes for larger, considerably weightier targets, and that combined with their musical prowess works in their favor once again here.

    Tightly coiled shredfests like "Cognitive Suicide" and "Devil's Creek" demonstrate how much they've grown up (without mellowing out) since their early-'90s skate-rat days.
