Tom Morello The Nightwatchman - World Wide Rebel Songs

Rating: 7

The politi-folk alter ego of Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, is, as the moniker suggests, an observer and informer of society’s wrongdoings, corruption and bullshit. He sets his almost spoken-word protest songs to harmonica-driven lines and angry acoustic guitars, the progressions of which are rather similar to those of his multi-million selling '90s day job. There is a sense of funk and bounce characterised by RATM on display here that gives the songs an underlying sense of conviction on top of Morello’s already biting vocal approach, while the comic book artwork injects a sense of fun into proceedings as well. Perfectly listenable stuff, this.
