Ha! I like making up crazy titles for these polls. Anyway, I first listened to this 2002 release just a couple months ago when I started doing these polls. The only song I knew from it previously was “The Pirate Song” which was a Top 10 all-time RW song to me. I use the word “was” because I will probably have to knock it down in favor of other songs on this album. The Brotherhood is incredible. Almost every song is great. Even the instrumental, which I normally consider filler, is a meaty 6:00+ track. In fact, here are my top 3 RW albums:

1. Port Royal
2. Black Hand Inn
3. The Brotherhood

I had to piece this album together from Youtube videos, but it was worth it, obviously. If you have not heard this album, I highly recommend seeking it out. It is RW at their best.

Now for the highlights which are pretty much the entire album, but I’ll narrow it down to a few stellar tracks. “Soulstrippers” is catchy as hell as is “Crossfire.” I really like the guitar work on “Detonator.” “The Pirate Song” has always been a favorite RW song for me. I also really like “Unation.” Usually I do not pick long songs as my favorite, but I have to make an exception for this album. My vote goes to “The Ghost (T.E. Lawrence)” about the poet’s stint as a liaison officer during the Arab Revolt at the time of the First World War. They use every bit of the 10:22 with eastern flavors and flying riffs. It makes the listener feel they are riding out on the desert.

I just listened to this today and like you, the Ghost gets my vote for the best. I really like that one.

This album isn't bad but feels a little phoned in at times. Other then Pirate Song and The Ghost nothing sticks. That said, it wasn't easy to do music like this in 2002.

Soulstrippers is a catchy song. But my votes goes to The Ghost.

I don't post just to bump these polls; BUT, this album is headbanger, and maybe moving this thread back up will spark an interest to check it out.

Being a huge fan of all things David Lean and Lawrence of Arabia in general, The Ghost gets my vote. Killer Middle Eastern vibe in parts.
