Potemkin City Limits

Fat Wreck Chords 683

Released on October 18, 2005



Want to be notified once we get restocked?

Sometimes you have to wait for a good thing, and a Propagandhi record is no exception, in fact it’s become something to expect. After a four year wait the time has come for Propagandhi to release their fourth full length on FAT entitled Potemkin City Limits. As always these Canadians push the limits of musicianship and politics, leaving their fans not only educated, but cheering for more! The band had this to say, “Three visibly aging trainables clearly in the wrong line of work and quite seriously on the verge of suicide make a recording of their private thoughts set to music for distribution to the general public. New laments, meditations, and extrapolations from people who just cannot believe they have to be here.” With catalog sales in the hundreds of thousands there’s proof of fans in waiting, and the wait is over, rejoice!

Track 6 is way good and so is track 7. Check these guys out. They're pretty rad and write sweet music.

This CD contained a lot more melody than propaghandy uses to come with. Splendid lyrics, like always, but on the other hand I think that many songs sound a lot like each other. This was a good record, but definitly not the best one from propaghandi. So: The politics are as they sould be, but the music could have been a little better

love and peace Marco

this is an all around great propagandhi record. the intro track is probably one of the best intor songs i've ever heard. the only thing i don't like about this cd is the longer, slower songs. if they were a bit shorter or faster, i'd probably give this cd 5 stars. either way a great record. you should probably get it.

kenny doesn't like music.

I've listened to Propagandhi for years and I go through phases when it comes to deciding on a favourite album, however I'm almost certain I could call this my favourite release of theirs. Its the perfect balnce of thrash and melody and Chris Hannahs riffs are only gettin better,Todd sings alot more on this one too which I think is really cool and adds another side to the band.... a fucking masterpiece! BUY IT!

When I first hear this, it was decent, but then it grew on me. It grew on me so much that Propagandhi became my favorite band (instead of just being in my top 5). I wouldn't say it's as good as "Empires" but it's close. The lyrics are very intelligent and the music just melts your face off. The songs are longer, and a bit slower than the songs on "Empires" but still remain complex. The CD-Rom it comes with has alot of cool information on it too. There's not a song I don't like on this album.

I'd say my top three favorite are: 1. A Speculative Fiction 2. Fedallah's Hearse 3. Iteration

The artwork is neat, too and comes on recycled cardboard (how eco-friendly of them). Anyway, I'd definetly say it was worth the wait. It's just amazing. This band has balls. Really, what other band would make fun of the person who owns the record label they're on? Yep, that's right: They even make fun of Fat Mike. (don't get me wrong, NOFX rules, too) Now you have to get it. Give it a few listens before you make up your mind about it.

i just realized something. this band is fucking incredible.

anyone who talks shit about this record probably falls into one of three categories:

1) people who think a band should sound EXACTLY like they sound on their first record forever.

2) people who think punk rock must sound a very specific way.

3) people who just have no idea what good music is.

classic propagandhi attitude and sarcasm, incredible guitar work, brilliant drumming, fresh timely lyrics, and an ability to tackle the hard subjects in ways that work. fast as fuck, loud as hell, and as pissed as ever. you just can't beat this record.

Propagandhi is one of those bands that really does not give a fuck what you say. They arent just making music for the sake of their fans, they are making music for the sake of everyone. I'm not saying anyone can sit down and enjoy this record, but i mean they are throwing a life preserver to a drowning scence. They make music that they enjoy playing not whats popular, not what people want to hear, but what they need to hear. Each album by them is unique and quite excellent. When i first listened to this i thought it was quite a stretch from Empires, but then i realized that doesnt matter because Empires was a stretch from their other stuff. Its more thrash rock than the hardcoreness of the last one. If you want well constructed songs with incredibally intelligent lyrics five years in the making, then pick this up.

There are no terrific and outstanding songs as were 'Mate Ka...', 'TETA', 'Back to the Motor League' or 'Purina Hall Of Fame' on "Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes" (although 'Iteration' or 'Die Jugend Marschiert' are truly great), but there are less mediocre songs too, so overall this cd has a better balance. In short "Potemkin City Limits" is a solid release by Propagandhi, as usual. Bad news is we'll now have to wait another 5 or 6 years for the next album, if ever...

What a sad cd. Sounds nothing like older propagandhi. I was extremely excited when I first brought this album, but after flicking through the cd, each song began to sound the same quickly. The lyrics and the music are still great, the vocals have become extremely melodic.

I guess the saddest thing about this cd for me was, I was expecting another brilliant album and wound up with something completely different. I wouldn't have brought it otherwise.

In saying that, it's still a good album, just doesnt attract my attention at all.
