Europe Is Lost feels like the standard-bearer for Let Them Eat Chaos, clearly demonstrating Tempest’s political leaning and message – “half a generation living below the breadline” – while also providing the best blend of her poetry and the music.  Anyone feeling priced out of living in a major city will relate to Perfect Coffee’s
story of gentrification and urban displacement, which features a dark, brooding, musicality that contrasts with a track like Whoops, which is reminiscent of The Streets without especially sounding like them.  We Die segues from bobbing groove to a heavy hip-hop bass beat, and the brief Brews acts as an ambient introduction for the arrhythmic/counter-rhythmic Don’t Fall In.
