Jadal's New Song Broaches Materialism, Modernity and the Value of National Cultural Productions

Jordanian group Jadal's first single from their latest CD 'Al Makina' is the title track which has been released with an interesting video clip.

The song 'El Makina' [The Machine] addresses varied issues related to social class systems, writers' contributions to the culture and very existence of their native country, the way that art and literature are often devalued in a modern context, working non-stop like a 'Machine' to be 'productive.' and, on a more personal note, finding someone to love regardless of one's earning ability.

Here is the officially released video clip, followed by the lyrics (in Arabic):



See http://youtu.be/A8X-ZHGgap4

LYRICS:

هذا حالي هيك خذيني مع مصاري أو بلا
كيف مش مبالي لا أنا هيني ماشي وهيني بحرث زي الماكينة

لو قالوي أغزو بلد لقتل كتّاب الشعر وكل حامل قلم
هاي أفكار مش بس بتنكتب هاي ألحان تتغنّى لولد الولد
ولو صار و ما حد كتب ما أسهل تمحي اسم أي بلد

وحب وما بيكفيها قال وفن ما بطعميش الولاد والناس الناس شو بدها تحكي عنكوا الناس
وعرس يلبّسها ألماس وبيت بحارة هاي كلاس للناس للناس بس لنعبّي عيون الناس
وانت ساكنه هون وهاد مش أي بلد

My CD Review: Jadal - El Makina




--All Tracks are FCC CLEAN—

This is the highly anticipated second album by the Jordanian rock group Jadal—the follow up to their classic first album ‘Arabic Rocks.’ "El Makina" contains 10 tracks that address social and personal issues pertinent to youth in the Middle East. Jadal sounds like a mix between Suystem of a Down and Jason Mraz. Composed and written by Mahmoud Radaideh. Vocals: Ahmad Zou’bi, Drums: Ammar Urabi, Bass: Amjad Shahrour, Guitars: Mahmoud Radaideh, Accordion: Hani Mezyan, Backing Vocals: Mahmoud Radaideh, Synthesizers:Bader Helalat. Mixing Engineer: David Scott.

1. Ghabeh B’eed (4:59) Steady rock ballad about going far away.

2. Ana Bakhaf Min El Commitment (4:20) Humorous track about being afraid of commitment.

3. Fe Nabd Ana Has (3:52).Rock ballad that starts slowly, picks up and becomes rock song.

**4. El Makina (4:57) Title track is appealing, about working like a machine. Rock ballad.

5. I’m In Love with Wala Bint (3:30) Soft rock, lots of guitar sounds.

6. Yum El Jum’a Dayman Ashwab (3:54) Title is ‘Fridays Are Always Hotter.’ Starts slow, then becomes regular rock song.

7. Zad El Sheib (4:37) Soft rock ballad about grey hair creeping in on a guy.

**8. Bye Bye Azizi (4:01) Lively, instantly likable soft rock song.

9. Ma Raddatish (4:50) Sounds like Soudgarden.

10. Hada Yakhud Makani (2:33) Weird sounds in intro, slow, picks up with bizarre instruments and noise.

**My picks: 4 and 8 Ramzi Salti
