Sorry, you're exactly right. I didn't read properly what you had wrote, I assumed it was something I'd saw before (which it is similar to).

That's probably my least favourite Godspeed album. Not that it's bad, but it's never really stuck out for me like the rest of them do.

Yeah, I agree. Not so much about the revolution part, but certainly that the change has to come in the people of Zimbabwe, rather than giving them a new leader, who they may or may not trust.
