Siren Song Of The Counter-Culture
by Rise Against
Released: Aug 2004
With this third release, and first for a major label, Rise Against continue their campaign for change in aggressive fashion. Catchy and political, the album refines the group's populist approach to socially conscious punk, from the guitar driven lyrical anthem "Give It All" to the acoustic sing-along ballad "Swing Life Away." Kicking the effort off hard with the government-attacking "State of the Union," Rise Against deliver a call to action for 40 solid minutes.
