CD+DVD. Arguably if RUN-DMC is the Beatles of rap music, Public Enemy is surely it's Rolling Stones. This is studio album number 10, there are millions of their records sold, and their songs have become part of history, jargon, and culture. New Whirl Odor has followed that Public Enemy tradition in trendsetting, while never repeating themselves. 'Bring That Beat Back', 'Revolution', 'Preaching to the Quiet', and 'Superman's Black in the Building' are tracks also coupled with videos on the accompanying DVD.

never seen the like of a group before like Public Enemy naturally gifted GOD BLESS !
With all the core band members well over 40, Public Enemy is already defying conventional wisdom on how long rappers can make a career off of beats and rhymes.
Enjoying a semi-cult status, the band still tours worldwide venues regularly. But like the Rolling Stones, the group isn't content to just be a nostalgia act.
Bypassing major labels for their own indie imprint, PE has crafted an LP that builds on their past, but still looks forward.
Lingering domestic and international crises were likely invigorating force for the group, and neither the current US administration nor the excess of today's hip-hop culture are let off the hook, in "Makes You Blind": "Y'all know what I said when I say no to thug/thug life runs at the top and y'all thought it was `Pac...35 years old/ lost in a X-Box, Playstation and videos..."
Chuck's ad-libs here name-check the Temptations' social-commentary LP "Ball of Confusion." It's obvious that he sees a parallel in today's world and the Vietnam era.
Fortunately, Flavor Flav's reality show stints haven't diminished his role as hype man/Greek chorus to Chuck's stentorian soul lectures, as the diminutive dynamo zigs where Chuck zags (and a hidden track finds him freestyling with LL Cool J).
"MKLVFKWR" is a scorching anti-war anthem produced by electronica maestro Moby: "Power to the people, not the governments/Capitalists, Communists, Terrorists/swear to God I don't know the difference ..."
This cut is the sole "star" track, as the bulk of production on the LP is handled by Chuck's handpicked post-Bomb Squad team of DJ Johnny Juice, Professor Griff, Abnormal, C-Doc and Cheef Exek.
They keep PE's sonic legacy intact, and likely at a fraction of the cost having a laundry list of superstar knob-twirlers would incur.
"Check What You're Listening To" showcases DJ Lord - who replaced Terminator X back in '99 - and in between Chuck's swipes against commercial radio it serves as a scratch-heavy tribute to the late Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC.
It's easily one of the best songs on the LP. The closing cut, "Superman's Black in the Building," is an extended jam (clocking in at more than 11 minutes), featuring saxophone by Chess Recordings jazz legend Gene Barge.
Chuck, Flav and Griff aren't content to just rest on their already rock-solid legacy, soldiering on in the face of continuing ambivalence toward veteran hip-hop acts. PE drafted the blueprint that today's activist MC's - like Kanye West and Common - borrow from.
"New Whirl Odor" won't disappoint anyone who appreciates jeep-ready jams with a message.
