Great stuff from PE chucks the man the material is as relevant then as it is today political messages done in a thought provoking way i loved public enemy back in the day and revisiting it again is as good as it was then YEAH BOY!!!
One of the best intros in hip hop history. A full on assault of the ears, followed by various timeless hip hop tracks. They almost parodied themselves after the flawless 'fear' album, yss! They went this loud. Must have for any serious music collection.
In their prime here...political motivation, education and mixed feelings of anger, frustration and hope for change, is the driving force behind the energy of the tracks. Big beats and lyrics that should be praised as poetic mix seamlessly track after track. A great album.
I loved the CD very much! 'Lost At Birth' is a good song as well as 'Rebirth', 'Nighttrain' and 'Can't Truss It'; I loved the song 'I Don't Wanna Be Called Yo Niga' and I can definitely relate to the lyrics in the song! 'How To Kill A Radio Consultant' is good but 'By The Time I Get To Arizona' is another song I can relate to and Public Enemy wanted the racist states of New Hampshire and Arizona to acknowledge Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and for the two states to make Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day a federal holiday. 'Move!' is a great song as well as '1 Million Bottlebags'; I loved 'More News At 11' because it dealt with a lot of bad crimes in New York City; 'Shut Em Down' is a good song as well as 'A Letter To The New York Post' because it dealt with Public Enemy when the newspaper reported vicious lies about Flava Flav's dealings with the law; 'Get The F*** Outta Dodge' is a song I can definitely relate to and I really loved the song 'Bring Tha Noize' (w/Anthrax) even though I am not a fan of Heavy Metal/Headbanging music but there was something about the song I liked! Perhaps it was the electric guitars as well as the lyrics?! I loved the sampling, mixing and scratching by DJ Terminator X as well as the rapping by rappers Chuck D and Flavor Flav. I really enjoyed this CD a lot and it sounds even better on CD than cassette (LOL!!!)
