    This is a noble and compelling body of music. [Jul 2011, p.51]

    Though his acoustic-playing doesn't emit the intensity of his electric style, the conviction in his voice is where the true vehemency lies, and it makes you wonder what's scarier: Tom Morello challenging you to a guitar duel, or Tom Morello picketing against you?

    Those of centrist or conservative political persuasions may decide this is a socialist document. Let them. For Morello and others, this recording claims songs from organized labor history, which are more relevant now than ever; he includes his own contributions to it as well.

    Though Morello's blunt originals don't leave much room for poetry or subtlety, hearing him perform "Union Song" at the Madison rally invokes a certain rabble-rousing spirit that Billy Bragg surely would recognize.
