Propagandhi Victory

Propagandhi is one of those bands that I really loved in the mid to late 90's, but then I lost all interest in as we moved into the 00's. I only gave Failed States (2012) and Supporting Caste (2009) a handful of spins before shelving them, and I never even bothered with Potemkin City Limits (2005).

Despite not having very much interest in Propagandhi, I still stepped up to check out the video for Failed Imagineer from their new album last year. Damn, that song was great, and suddenly I was very interested to check out more.

I stole a download of Victory Lap, listened to it once or twice, and like the last couple of Propagandhi, I kind of shrugged my shoulders and moved on.

I was recently going through my 2017 playlist, and came across that new Propagandhi album. I gave it a spin, and before I knew it, my stats showed that it was my most listened to Propagandhi album from the past twelve years. I just kept going back to it...over and over...and eventually it became obvious that I was going to need to finally pick up the vinyl.

Never heard any Propagandhi albums other than the first one. Liked that first one when it came out, but the couple of 7"s that followed it were very different and that was it, I was done.

^ You're missing out. In my opinion, Propagandhi got better with every album.
