To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This album met with bad reviews as the hip hop landscape was changing. It's a great album that requires multiple listens. It's less accessible than the earlier Public Enemy albums and I think that's why I keep listening to it. Super cheap to get hold of so grab a copy!
