Midnight Oil frontman Peter Garrett has long been active in elective politics in Australia, and like any good politician, he knows that sometimes the most important thing is to get your message out to the masses, even it means speaking with a bit less force than might be your custom. As a result, Diesel and Dust isn't an album for hardcore Oils fans, but as a bid for a larger audience, it was both shrewd and well executed - it was the group's first real worldwide success, going platinum in America and spawning a massive hit single, "Beds Are Burning.

Fueled by political passions, Midnight Oil’s Diesel and Dust is one of the most urgent rock albums of the ’80s. In the storming radio anthem Beds Are Burning, the band takes on its country’s exploitation of indigenous people. Bullroarer and Dreamworld are blistering tunes, as insistent and angry as they are catchy and inclusive. In contrast, The Dead Heart and Whoah create a slow and elegiac interpretation of country music, which Midnight Oil delivers as a ritual for a fading world. Diesel and Dust (Remastered) Midnight Oil. Rock.

Midnight Oil’s Diesel and Dust is an album that sounds as fresh today as it did 20 years ago and one of their finest in The Oils’ lengthy career. Ten songs filled with smart, moving lyrics, upbeat, catchy and at times drearier parts, and an overall captivating output, it’s just an excellent album. Due to my limited knowledge of Australian rock, I can’t accurately say its one of the best albums to come out of Australia, but can easily see it being one; same goes for being one of the better albums of the 80s.

Reviews about Midnight Oil - Diesel And Dust (1):
I think there's an error in the Matrix/Runout Side B (etched). I think it's supposed to start "BL-40967" and not the "AL" that's shown.
