The title says it all.In 1988, when this album was released, Public Enemy's music cut with a wholly revolutionary edge.Rarely has fear, anger, paranoia and anxiety been so masterfully compressed onto a record's grooves.The bomb squad's artistry is the keynote to the hard, lean delivery, while Chuck D's supremely pointed lyrics leave no stone of the black experience unturned.It is not comfortable listening, but on tracks such as 'Don't Believe the Hype', 'Night of the Living Baseheads' and 'Rebel Without a Pause' the listener is left in no doubt that they are facing a fantastically potent force.

This is the best *sounding* CD version yet. Certainly superior to the original disc and *far* superior to the 2000 master which just felt louder and slightly harsher but still lacked any proper low end weight.
The low end had been given some much needed weight and everything now sounds quite balanced. It's not an astonishing difference by any means but a worthwhile and welcome one. I tested all the CD's on an audiophile system vs an original vinyl pressing. Unsurprisingly the vinyl is the clear winner with more natural vocals but the new remaster was the closest to the vinyl in terms of sound quality over the previous CD issues.
Packaging for the set is excellent and the extra material and DVD are nice bonuses.
It's the best CD version we're ever likely to see....
Why anyone has to describe this album is beyond...if you're on this page, you were going to buy it anyway (shame on you for having it in the first place). It's pride and positive anger rolled into one - its beyond race, creed, gender or nation...its perfect!
The record pressing quality is very good and so is the outer sleeve.
Very good price compared to the average vinyl release.
