Yes.  What we need is one big colossal, bureaucratic organization, The State, to supplant the corporations, because all people who work for corporations are evil, and all State, Federal, and Local government employees are good.  In fact, we should combine the best elements of the mom and pop corner grocery (usually run by the pop, i.e. a dominant husky male, father figure type) and make this pop make all the key decisions about the economy, and how we live our lives, settle our differences, express ourselves.  That would fix everything.  One vote is all it takes (it's BTW, the last vote).  They tried this I think in, uh, Germany I think about 80 years ago.  Worked out pretty good.
 

There's always one jerk in every crowd who has to make some idiotic political statement.  Let me buy you a clue, enjoy the music and keep your political views to yourself.
Five... and counting...

I'm thinking a more avuncular figure would be more suitable than a pop.  Something like, oh I don't know, how about an Uncle Joe?  Who can you trust if not old Uncle Joe?  Uncle Joe has your back.  Surely if Uncle Joe only knew about this injustice, we wouldn't be in this frozen gulag.

Narcissism? You lost me...{#Think}

As song talking about narcissism.  Our society desperately needs to get the fact that these guys are insulting a great big slice of us.  Or did you agree that looking at yourself in the mirror is a swell way to pass the time?
 

You believe they're talking about you ?? Ha !

I will always love this album. I listened to it after I did a 27.3 mile fast-pack on the kesugi ridge trail in Denali S.P. in 2007, during which I was struck by lightning at mile 18, and then had to bike back another 17 miles to my car. When I got back to my car and tended to my injuries and started driving home to Fairbanks, where I lived then...I played Cosmic Game over and over, reflecting on the fact that I was still alive. All their music makes me feel good!
 
Very cool experience.  I, too, link music to events in my life.  After nearly57 years, I have lots of musical stories!

Even Yoko Ono would have sounded fairly good—I think —at the end of your ordeal. Glad you're OK...

Coming from DC, I guess I'd best support Thievery Corporation with a "7"...but I think I'd like them if I lived someplace else.
Uh?? :shifty: :clap:

I agree, just saw them at Langerado and was blown away all over again.

Thought I was hearing "I Zimbra" when it started.

Segued from English Beat's Mirror in the Bathroom. Hmmm. I like it. :dance:
Groovy piece of music that shows, that creative people didn't surrender.

Sheesh. They're nothing like the Stones. That's like saying that Mozart doesn't have the same patriotic fervor of Toby Keith. In both cases, yeah, maybe so, but what's the point? Does that basically mean that anything that isn't the Stones or doesn't slavishly imitate them is weak? Puleeeeaze.
Sounds like Bill has 'left the building' and hit 'repeat play' on the track listings again!!

I do too. However it just underscores the weakness of this compared to the Stones. This lacks an edge, an energy. It sounds like Santana playing in the lounge of a hotel.

Couple tour dates available...
Oye como va.

Yet again. FYI - Bill isn't a robot who can stay at the control panel 24/7.

Thievery has their own record label. ESLmusic.com. You may find other artists you like. I like Thunderball and Ursula 2000. You can also buy directly from the web site.

It took me a while to figure out that it was Portuguese! Great to know that more modern bands are using Brazilian influences... Our music is so rich. The best, in my opinion.
Oi! Theivery Corporation has had so many wonderful vocalists throughout their various releases. Singers from Brasil, Cape Verde, France, Canada, the Caribbean, and more. It is fantastic to listen to one of their CDs and to hear so many languages represented. :)
Going to their first of 3 shows at the 9:30 Club in DC tonight! Can't Wait! Also, you can read a review of their album, The Cosmic Game, that I wrote on my website here: https://musiccapitol.blogspot.com/2005/06/thievery-corporation-cosmic-game.html Look for my review of the show at https://musiccapitol.blogspot.com/2005/07/review-thievery-corporation-930-club.html

Thievery Corporation is great! I had not heard of it until I heard it on RP. Thanks for the introduction! Of course, I followed the ITunes link to purchase several albums and have them in my ipod rotation ever since. Thanks RP!

That guitar riff is awesome, along with the rest of the song. What a great band. A 9.

Excellent CD, best of the year, or even of 2004 IMHO...
I have agreed with all the songs I have heard from these guys. S.
I'm at work doing my thing and out of nowhere I notice this is not English... but I understand it! It took me a while to figure out that it was Portuguese! Hahaha I've been in the US for such a long time that when I hear my own native language it sounds weird, so unexpected... Great to know that more modern bands are using Brazilian influences... Our music is so rich. The best, in my opinion.
This has SUCH a Santana Abraxas groove -- I keep waiting for Carlos to come in with a solo...

nice!
TC, great stuff!! Finally coming to PDX... (pimp)
Do these people make bad stuff? I haven't heard it yet. Everything I've managed to listen to from them is just super smooth. 8)
Ooh, I thought that was Sade'. 6.
I just ordered this from Amazon.com, yeah !
More chillhouse please. I think it agrees with me.
