"Counter Propaganda" - Album Review from UK's fRoots Magazine

Clash of Civilizations had an EP out a few months ago which was very well received in these pages. All four tracks from that appear on this debut album, along with six new compositions. The EP was an intense earful, but fortunately CoC duo Milan Kovacev and Nikola Radan (who write all the material, provide the beats and play the lion’s share of the instruments), have programmed a more diverse set for this longer listen. Their combination of electronics, live instruments, vocals and snippets of political speeches is still the same though and can be heard as its best on blues-infused opener Declaration of Independence, but this is a strong set throughout. Even though you’ll have almost half of what’s on offer here if you’ve already got the EP, there’s probably still enough good new stuff to merit investigation.
