The Red Plastic Buddha: Songs for Mara (2014)

Songs for Mara is the third album by Chicago's The Red Plastic Buddha. The name refers to Prince Siddhartha's struggle to overcome the demon of his own ego on the path to becoming the Buddha. The songs on this record make a break from the flower power psychedelia of All Out Revolution, with darker themes addressing addiction, obsession and madness. Although Songs for Mara reveals a darker side of the band, the songs still feature the melodic catchiness The Red Plastic Buddha have become known for.
