Go Figure is a 1991 album by Spirit of the West. It was the band's first rock album, and their first with drummer Vince Ditrich.
The album garnered the band new airplay on rock music radio stations, although it was controversial among the band's traditional folk music fan base. The album includes a rock rendition of "Political", one of the band's best known songs. During the concert tour to support this album, fans in one city actually presented the band with a petition requesting that they play the old version of that song.
Despite earning a gold record, the album was only a modest success on the charts, however, peaking at #45 on RPM's Top 100 albums chart.
A recurring theme throughout the album is disaffection with the government of then-Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. "D for Democracy", "Pulling Lame" and "Far Too Canadian" are all anti-Mulroney songs, reflecting the widespread popular opposition to Mulroney among the Canadian public which led to the 1992 defeat of the Charlottetown Accord and the Progressive Conservative decimation in the Canadian federal election, 1993.
