New Model Army's ideologies have hardened over the years, and become unbreakable. Twenty-five years of fight will do that. But the band has inevitably matured over that time, too. 2000's tensely melodic Eight proved it, and 2005's Carnival continues the battle. Justin Sullivan's lyrics are still sharp-edged and poetic – he's a passionate social critic, but will never shout from an ivory tower. In "BD 3" he listens and watches from his house as his town changes all around him; for the restless, listless youth smoking weed and listening to 2Pac, it's less a hometown than a holding pattern.
