Cold-blood cop killer or political prisoner? You're free to make the call, although this necessarily self-serving album of Mumia's musings on his years on death row (plus tributes from the likes of Allen Ginsberg and label head Jello Biafra) is unlikely to change anybody's mind. The former journalist is, nonetheless, on the evidence here, an eloquent writer and a gripping speaker who provides riveting takes on the death penalty, life on death row ("the fastest growing public housing tract in America"), and corporate control of the media. As for the music, there's some ambient stuff plus a few tracks of extremely angry punk noise.
