  1. There isn't a weak moment here as everything is organized, beautifully arranged, and never feels pushed or forced.
  2. Security is absolutely accessible, with a broad, potentially surprising appeal for those willing to listen.

    Security brings new elements to the mix without compromising Antibalas' fundamental power. [#75, p.94]
  4. Uncut

    Their mission sounds increasingly convincing. [May 2007, p.87]
  5. The album's lengthy tracks are daunting for the casual listener, but the CD casts a spell reminiscent in its raw power and political fervor of TV on the Radio's triumphant "Return to Cookie Mountain."
  6. Under The Radar
    70
    A series of songs that showcase their exceptional musicianship. [#17, p.98]
  7. Essential background music, if such a thing exists.

    This is a great album, the musicians are wonderful and the vocals are just right when and how it's needed, every person who loves good This is a great album, the musicians are wonderful and the vocals are just right when and how it's needed, every person who loves good music should listen at least to Filibuster X, Sanctuary, I.C.E. and Age, but really this album has no waste, it's good to know that there are bands in this world aiming to make quality music. Kudos to Antibalas, one of the best bands I've heard in a while Expand
