If you're reading this, odds are you're already a Rage fan, so there's no point telling you how good the title track is. The real story here is the other two tracks. Rage seem to be taking the Pet Shop Boys attitude toward B-sides -- using them as a chance to experiment. In this case, "Darkness of Greed" seems to be an experiment in a pseudo-swing style, and it's hard to say whether it works or not. "Clear the Lane" is closer to the usual Rage sound, but De La Rocha's vocals seem to have a different quality to them, as though he were ill the day they were recorded or had spent several hours among Southerners. The lyrics are pure Rage, familiar territory to anyone who's heard any of their other albums. It's hard to recommend this album to anyone but the most die-hard Rage Against the Machine completist. The songs are good, but you'd be better off waiting a year or two for the inevitable B-side compilation to come out.

This cd may not be packed with songs but for a single packs a good punch. Killing in the Name and the two b-sides,also on Live and Rare, flow soo nicely with each other. So if your in the mood for some rage just through this disc in and take on the hard hitting Killing in... the exotic guitar of Clear the lane and finish with one of rages strongest songs...Darkness. All "real" rage fans should have this one, or not...whatever.

Seems weird to be reviewing this salient single after all these years but in the final analysis here is my two cents worth regarding this three track single.

First up, the mega iht of the title track itself. Staccato blasts of guitar with vocalist Zach ranting and raving over the top to good effect is what you get here, coupled with a squawking, grating guitar solo that would become Mr Morellos' calling card. The song works partly due to it's connectivity in that the thing being ranted against is so broad that it resonates with such a huge mainstream of an audience. It's anti authoritarian stance is always going to appeal and each person hearing the tune - repeated profanity included - can pretty much be guaranteed to connect with it on some level. And so a hit is born.

Things do fall apart a bit on tune number two which sounds like a knock off of the first cut. Zachs' voice rides basically the same melody and at this poin tthe sameyness of his nasal whine becomes apparent. And the rather far left wing cod philosophy sounds pretty lame. Trying to go on about conspiracy theories stipulating that there is some sort of agenda in delaying AIDS vaccine so as to let lots of Africans die of it blah blah blah - it's pretty tired, very far out and doesn't connect at all which was perhaps part of the strategic point, the band desperate to portray themselves as social change firebrands and willing to spout any nonsense in order to the 'in' with the 'out' crowd. And another squawking, grating, tuneless and tone defying guitar solo doesn't help.

Third track is the odd man out as it's actually not a rewrite of the first tune. But it's not a stand out and is overly mellow.

i just want to start out by saying i am a huge rage fan. but 24 dollars for 3 songs? youve got to be kidding me, you can buy live and rare and get the other 2 songs on this cd for less than 20 dollars! lower the price to 4 dollars and only then i would consider buying it
