ALBUM REVIEW: Laibach- "A Chicken In Every Pot, Laibach In Every City (2015 North American Tour Live Album)"

This is a live, digital-only album exclusively available as a gift to pledgers who supported Laibach's North American Tour 2015 via Indiegogo. It consists of tracks recorded live from the tour and is 1 hour, 52 minutes in length.

Disappointingly for me, no tracks are from the show I attended in NYC, though the set list was the same or at least very similar. Anyway, the album includes the pre-recorded voice which introduced songs and set highlights (for me): The Whistleblowers, B Mashina (yeah Iron Sky!), Bossanova, and encore tracks Tanz Mit Laibach and Leben Heisst Leben.

The tracks are all high-quality and do a great job capturing what it was like to hear this tour. Hopefully, at least some of these tracks will be made available in some form for Laibach fans who missed the tour or were unable to donate (lacking 'Kaptial' harhar).

I would also LOVE more coverage of Laibach's North Korea performance, but that's a whole other story...

Until then, I'll (digitally) covet my copy; Das spiel ist aus!
