Canada's alt.rock poster boys are back with their sixth release, Healthy in Paranoid Times
. Since their first release in 1994, Our Lady Peace has been offering fiery, politically-charged rock in every album. Healthy
has a decent helping, as long as you know where to look. Songs like “Will the Future Blame Us” and “The World on a String” are (quite obviously) about world politics today. “Al Genina (Leave the Light On)” sounds like a typical oh-baby-I-miss-you-so-much love song unless you know the band's history with organizations like War Child. A quick Google search can give further clues to a curious listener—Al Genina is a refugee camp in Darfur. Healthy
is more produced and not as experimental as past OLP albums, but the fire is still there—I promise.
