TOM MORELLO, THE NIGHTWATCHMAN

The Fabled City

2008-10-20

Morello’s follow up to 07’s One Man Revolution continues carrying the flag of support for the proletarian and exploited masses because we need one more Harvard educated folk singer like I need self administered trepanation. Fabled City picks up a little more volume and electricity than the former. Stark lyrics and deep, bleak vocals trod over Morrellos renowned guitar work akin to Leonard Coen less the poignant lyricism. Serj Tankian of System Of A Down infamy appears on Lazarus On Down while Waylon Jennings son, Shooter shows up on The Iron Wheel. All in all I find this disc to be an unimaginative put-on. – While Lee
