(Album Review) “20/20 Vision” by ANTI-FLAG

(Album Review) “20/20 Vision” by ANTI-FLAG

Given the results of today’s vote on the impeachment trial involving President Donald Trump, we figured it would be appropriate to review Anti-Flag’s latest record entitled “20/20 Vision”.

No matter your political views, we need to have our thoughts and everything about us provoked.  Anti-Flag offers this with their extremely angry album.  The first track “Hate Conquers All”, showcases President Trump providing voiceovers in part of the track.  The track discusses how the band will not stand for racism, homophobia, transphobia and the like, and that we need to stand as one and fight hate with love.  Anti-Flag stands against environmental deregulation, ICE, immigration laws implemented by President Obama and enforced by Trump and any corporation that has bought our politicians when they need to listen to the people.

Tracks exposing the hypocrisy of evangelical Christianity is very profound and evident in “Christian Nationalist”, along with messages exposing the right in “Don’t Let The Bastards Get You Down”.  I argue that this is their most angry record since “Die For The Government”.

Their musicianship is on point, and most importantly they live the message that they sing about.  Anti-Flag is very philanthropic in their work and they are well known to take part in rallies and demonstrations in order to get the message across.  Their music screams of organic goodness and a message that will provoke your thoughts even if you might not agree with what they are saying.  Raise the middle finger with me to the anti-establishment as Madness To Creation rates “20/20 Vision” by Anti-Flag a solid 9 out of 10 stars.  Check out the track listing below:

  1.  Hate Conquers All
  2.  It Went Off Like A Bomb

  5.  Don’t Let The Bastards Get You Down
  6.  Unbreakable
  7.  The Disease
  8.  A Nation Sleeps
  9.  You Make Me Sick
  10.  Un-American
  11.  Resistance Frequencies
