Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of one of the bastions of hip-hop. "The Message" was an incredibly important record at the time of it's release, as it took elevated rap and transformed it from party music to a recognized recording artform.

Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel certainly broke the mold when they made 'The Message' and do note I AM SPEAKING OF THE ALBUM AS A WHOLE,not mearly the justly revered title number,the first known hip-hop reflection of urban decay.As far as the album goes 'The Message' is an eight song mix of classic early 80's DJ/rap breaks courtesy of Flash himself (notably on the classic "Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel"),old school 80's vocal funk and even two quality,smoochy ballads-one of whitch "Dreamin'" is a tribute to Stevie Wonder,a musical innovator whom the Furious Five evidently saw as a major influence."You Are" is actually an extremely well sung and performed ballad but I'm sure only a few Christian rappers will appreciate the song's highly religious lyrics.The albums first three songs "She's Fresh","It's Hot" the the excellent vocorder whipped "Scorpio" actually showcase pure 80's electro funk with ACTUAL SINGING rather then mearly rap.So 'The Message' album rounds out to be an all inclusive good time for funk,hip-hop and perhapes even pop fans alike-not only did it come early enough in the game to avoid rap's modern clishes of misogyny,homophobia and pure shock jockisms and focuses primarily on the artistry of the medium and when the do stand up to the lyrical challange of hip-hop Melle Mel and the gang don't take any prisoners-they speak purely of the plight of the world and not it's people.And that's the quality that makes this album such an honored,and deservad classic.

I had the original tape from 1982, and eventually the LP. Now that the vinyls gone, and the tape is wearing thin, I'm buying the CD to preserve one of the most important albums in hip hop, scratch that, music history!!!

dig "Shes Fresh"&'Dreamin" but of course the Knock-out Jam is still "The Message" Which is a Hall Of Fame Jam in any era or time period.Still Arguably the Coldest, Tightest,&Rawest Jam to Come out of Hip-Hop over the past 20 Years Easily.this is Prime time Grandmaster Flash&the Furious Five.
