ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Infinite Monopoly Records releases CONSUMERS ALL:

"a genre-bending album that is well worth taking a close listen to, that is if you like jazz, classical, classic rock, dreampop, blues, adbusters, whatever you get my point, it covers a lot of ground." -www.Radiovista.ca

"To put it simply, it is a work of art, and should fit in your CD case somewhere between your most avant-garde jazz and your Pink Floyd."

"More cinematic a la Fellini's City of Women than background music , the instrumentals are as complex and rich as Phillip Glass, but with the drive of funk."

"If you enjoy music that is cutting edge, experimental, and
. . . profound, consume this one. "

"A great discovery...busy, clever, thick and ever-changing . . . Squarepusher meets Tesch with a dose of Capitol K and lots of classical/strings to give it a soundtrackish vibe. Some of it is very liquid, creepy and mysterious. Beautifully flowing and captivating, all in all."

Jason Scott

awesome
This CD compiles great instrumentation, innovative music, and evocative lyric writing. I love it.

Steve

Soundtrack for the new millenium
It's amazing, contemplative, evocative, at times disturbing and all together a total experience. A soundtrack for the next new millenium (3000+) and any sequel to "BladeRunner."

Alyssa McBride

This is a potent blend of funk, cinematic moods and driving bass .
Consumer's All is the tale of the sunny happy American dream turned sour by our blind devotion to consumerism. More cinematic a la Fellini's City of Women than background music , the instrumentals are as complex and rich as Phillip Glass, but with the drive of funk. The lyrical humor is dry and lightly self-mocking, for Barak Moffitt is clearly a disapointed and idealistic American who invites his listeners to question our commitment to shopping. "Texaco" clearly implicates all of us American Citizens in the crimes of the corporate world while Baptized by Fire echoes of hope and a chance of redemption for our frayed nation in spite of our self betrayal.

James

4 Stars.
This CD is worth 4 stars as far as I’m concerned. I only give 4 or 5 stars. When I was young my mother said that if you do NOT have anything good to say then don’t say nothing at all. So, if I buy a CD and I am sorry I did that…my response is to not rate it at all. If I am glad I got it I give it 4 stars. If I am overjoyed that I bought that CD it gets 5 stars.

Mike

A Conceptual Tour de Force
"Consumers All" isn't background music. Its challenging stuff that will reward your attention--and, like all great albums, only gets better the more you listen. Its frightening and sad and beautiful, and actually has something to say about modern life. To put it simply, it is a work of art, and should fit in your CD case somewhere between your most avant-garde jazz and your Pink Floyd.

This artist is excellent in every way. His knowledge of music is tremendous & hi
Barak Moffitt is bar none one of the best of "up & coming" artists. The lyrics are moving, intelligent, & just kick a$$! If you want to do yourself a favor, listen to this and any other album that Barak Moffitt has. His music talent is awesome, his "band" gels very well with the intended concept. Kick a$$!
