Another World Is Possible
Uncivilized World
By Paul-Emile Comeau

Published June 27, 2006

The striking cover illustration of this compilation, which serves as a critique of globalization, is that of a world map filled in with bar codes. With a CD-sized hardcover, 48-page book containing articles by Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Subcomandante Marcos, Jose Saramago and five others, this is the kind of exceptional album whose booklet is on an equal footing with the accompanying CD. The articles all offer brief but cogent perspectives on the genuine concerns regarding globalization. As for the music, the CD includes songs associated with the Clash as performed by Asian Dub Foundation and Emir Kusturica, as well as songs by Femi Kuti, Salif Keita, the Skatalites, Grandaddy, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and eight more. If there’s a flaw to this elaborately designed album it’s that there’s very little information on the songs so some of the choices seem rather arbitrary. The album is nonetheless an important release, one that will hopefully contribute to a larger understanding of international social justice issues. It also serves as a fund-raiser for the pro-Tobin tax organization ATTAC (Association for the Taxation of Financial Transactions for the Aid of Citizens), whose slogan is “The world is not for sale.”
