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.

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. While the album lacks the kick-in-the-head impact of their earlier work, Diesel and Dust also makes clear that the bandmembers could apply their intelligence and passion to less aggressive material and still come up with forceful, compelling music, as on the haunting "The Dead Heart" and the poppy but emphatic "Dreamworld.
