"This is one of the earlier recordings of genre-crunching musical explorations on the Barbarity label. Revolt Against reason is a fun world fusion record with elements of reggae, dub, techno, Rai, hip-hop as well as drums, string instruments, electric guitar and melodic sing-alongs that will impress many fans of rock. Despite the wide umbrella of influences, all the tracks are settled into an original sound that has a distinctive feel to it. Above it all, running throughout the umbrella lay a powerful message "The revolt against reason is the fight against scientists in the need of proving material existence through facts or terrestrial value. The Revolt against reason is a non-violent intifada. One highlight El Qouds (track #6) with the grungy electric guitar and haunting wailing vocals. That song is meant to be a call for peace between Arabs and Jews. The concept of world fusion is quite prevalent here being the idea to combine cultural influences because the world is getting figuratively smaller and humanity should working toward creating a global community dissolving ethic prejudices. This music may seem strange on the first few listens but you will soon catch onto the rhythm. Recommended for those with adventurous musical tastes who enjoy funky mid-tempo beats."
