Apollo 440 - Tributes - Jean Baudrillard

Jean Baudrillard

The album, Millennium Fever, is a tribute to the French postmodernist Jean Baudrillard. Since the release of that album, other references to Jean Baudrillard's works have popped up.

  • The track, "Astral America", references Baudrillard's America essay, where the term originates.
  • The track, "The Perfect Crime", references Baudrillard's book of the same name.
  • The lyrics of "Stealth Requiem" reference the Baudrillardian concept of hyperreality. At one point a female voice says, "Ravishing hyperrealism ... Mind blowing", and later quotes directly from America (1988): "The exhilaration of obscenity; the obscenity of obviousness; the obviousness of power; the power of simulation."
