A very ambitious project on the theme of conflict. The song lyrics are translated into many languages on the edges of some pages, often the languages spoken in places that have been in conflict with each other either historically or recently. Interpersonal battles and larger scale wars are all explored. Snowball fights, social trouble, bombs. It’s difficult to summarize here. This album/book is heavy and important.
Printed at the fancy place, Hemlock Printers in Burnaby, B.C., Canada.
