Again, I can't do this justice because I've all but stopped listening to stuff like this, and it was never my cup of arsenic anyway. This disc is so old now I don't even know if these guys still exist.
They give a nod to George Orwell's book, Animal Farm in the lyrics, but I wouldn't exactly call this a concept album. Still, the lyrics show wit and intelligence, if only they were more intelligible (someone please find the guy who invented the Cookie Monster vocal style and remove his larynx).
What's most remarkable is that the members of The Hope Conspiracy live many miles away from each other, so the effort and care put into this cannot be discounted.
Members are: Kevin Baker ﾖ Vocalist, Jonas Feinberg ﾖ bass, Jared Shavelson ﾖ drums, and Neeraj Kane ﾖ guitar, and Jim Carroll ﾖ guitar.
