Occupy This Album Review: Disk 2

Occupy This Album Disk 2 begins with the premier vocal track by Michael Moore, “The Times They Are A-Changin”. I am very taken with his singing voice, he has nice tonality. I especially like that they interspersed part of his bullhorn speech from Zucotti Park into the mix.

22. Ace Reporter – “The World Is on Fire”

This band rocked. Their collective energy grabbed my attention as they poured their hearts out on stage.

23. The Middle Eight – “Latter Days”

24. Chroma – “Turn The Lights On”

Chroma was impressive. Articulate with lots of positive energy.

25. Ani DiFranco – “Which Side Are You On?” *

26. Tao Rodriguez-Seeger – “Well May The World Go”

27. Thievery Corporation – “Unified Tribes” *

28. Thee Oh Sees – “Robber Barons”

29. Mike Rimbaud – “Saving Up to Go Bankrupt”

30. Nanci Griffith – “Hell No (I’m Not Alright)” *

Nanci Griffith was fervent in her support for Occupy. She extended her performances at City Winery by hanging out to support and contribute to Occupy. Loved her devotion to the cause.

31. Joseph Arthur – “We Stand as One” *

32. Girls Against Boys – “Cash Machine”

33. Junkyard Empire – “Rebellion Politik”

34. Anti-Flag – “Nothing Recedes Like Progress”

36. Jill Sobule with John Doe – “Under the Bridge” 3

7. Stephan Said – “Take a Stand”

38. UNKLE – “The Answer”

39. Tom Morello(The Nightwatchman) – “World Wide Rebel Songs”

Tom Morello continues to grow large in my heart as an artist, a man of conviction to the cause. He has been such an ally to the Occupy movement. His track enters your heart and you can’t help but feel motivated and involved.

40. Third Eye Blind – “If There Ever Was a Time” *
