"I discovered Laibach's NOVA AKROPOLA by accident many years ago at a record store in Dallas, where I played a little bit of the CD just for curiosity's sake. I bought it immediately. This is probably the best work that the Slovenian ensemble has to offer.This CD is definitely not for everyone - Laibach blends elements of industrial, avant-garde classical, and military music to produce compositions that sometimes defy classification altogether. The title track is easily one of the scariest, rivaled by VADE RETRO and VOJNA POEMA. Anthems such as DRZAVA and DIE LIEBE help counterbalance the CD. The lyrics are in Slovenian and German, but English translations are printed on the CD insert. I highly recommend this CD. Just don't say I didn't warn you."
Were I a dictator... this would be my theme music

"This album cracks me up. It's brilliant in that it almost sounds like propaganda music for some right wing dictatorship. Some of the tracks are downright disturbing. That is VERY hard to capture in audio. If I were a serial killer, this would be my background music. Deffinately worth a listen, because let's face it, you didn't just stumble in here. Did you."
"Laibach at its slowest, darkest, most symphonic and most extreme at the same time. No other Laibach release (and most of there are classics in their won right) comes even close to this masterpiece. Features Milan's most brutal vocal performance ever."
Great, but unusual.

"This is industrial at it's best. Although not too musical, they are incredibly powerful. With powerful drum and bass beats and a vocalist that sounds like Till lindemann of Rammstein, this is a very unusual band that some have difficulty putting into one genre (ubl has them listed as punk- trust me, they are as far away from punk as one band can get.)"
