James – Whiplash

20 12 2012

The idea behind Whiplash is very obviously that society needs less TV and more Jesus (an idea expressed by the album cover as well as the lyrics). It’s pretty much a hybrid of Wah-Wah and Laid musically. Lots of mellow meditative experiments, but also catchy songs like She’s a Star and Tomorrow.

Pondering the title, I wonder – does it mean whiplash like the car-accident injury? Does it mean actually being on the receiving end of a whip? Does it mean we as a society enjoy being sadists? Or masochists? Or both?
