Album Review
Thievery Corporation - Culture of Fear

About 15 years ago, Thievery Corporation began as remixers and producers on Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi, then Abductions & Reconstructions, and then their foundation work on Mirror Conspiracy.    Their creative peak, The Richest Man in Babylon, proved that their sound had transcended into sophisticated global funk with a social conscience.    The Cosmic Game released with their musical recipe intact, but then Radio Retaliation brought forth a political frustration to the surface and it seemed as though TC's song structures were, quite frankly, becoming a bit tiresome.    However, on their newest album Culture of Fear, it is clear that the pair are still in tune with the frightening scope of political power from the very few across our blue planet, though Rob and Eric have matured this message with some broadening of their signature "Thievery Corporation" beats into something a little more refreshing, while retaining their love of syncopating middle-eastern touches and vocal work from their regular cohorts.    With song tracks entitled Web of Deception, Tower 7, False Flag Dub, and hushed lyrics such as "Can you say I'm free?" or "Take my soul. I don't need it anymore," it delivers a clear message, but the unforced delivery is a telling sign for Rob and Eric's future as prognosticators for both funk and freedom.
