Musically, this ain’t too bad—up-tempo hardcore with loud guitars—but lyrically I’m a little puzzled. The title track appears to be an ode to America’s war for oil, but the lyrics are cryptic enough to kinda make a feller scratch his head in confusion. What, pray tell, does “Domination oil frustration” and “This nation locks me in” have to do with Warsaw uprising? The flip, “Whore,” is even more perplexing. Either there’s something being lost in the translation or I’m hellafied more obtuse than I’ve previously given myself credit for, which ain’t out of the realm of possibility.
