we got bored of the democratic scene and handed control to celebrity

On the surface, In Debt To by Napoleon IIIrd sounds like an anthem rock album; however, in reality, although there are songs with anthem like characteristics, In Debt To is an extremely complex and multi-layered album. The themes of a heroic revolution and celebrating a conscious mindset occur throughout the record. "This Is My Call To Arms" begins the uprising with, “All we do is evolution and how we evolve depends upon the choice we mace, brace for disaster... don’t live your life through the TV”. Napoleon IIIrd then provides guidance to the listeners in "The Conformist Takes It All": "Consistency and conformity in this modern world will put you on the top of the pile... listen to what I say, average is not the best you can do..." and similarly in "Hit Schmooze For Me": "this is not my life, this is just my day job, the way I pay the rent." Napoleon IIIrd’s In Debt To is a reality check album, the songs encourage people to speak and live freely without holding back. The record is brilliant in every level: from the highly textualized instrumentations to the thought-provoking lyrics, it is surely one of the most innovative records of the year by far!!!
