Customer Reviews

They did make a very good and original way of covering the tracks.
Smoked Up Gandhi
The Cd is definitly worth buying and I hope Rage will find a good new frontman although I don't think that anyone can replace Zak.
Philipp
One of the best rock bands of all time, this is an awesome album, one of my favorites.

...Note that the 'bonus tracks' arent Australia only. 'Maggies Farm' and 'How I Could Just Kill a Man' are also on the U.S. version(they just arent listed as tracks). Since this one is alot more dough than the U.S. version, and they are basically the same, you would want that version instead.

Even though "Renegades," Rage Against The Machine's last album, was merely a cover album, it still solidifies the band's career and legendary status as the most active and unique protest rock band for Generation X and as innovators of the ill-fated rap-rock movement. All 12 covers -- spanning from hip-hop to punk to classic rock -- fit perfectly into Rage Against The Machine's songbook, keeping a clear message and not sacrificing one ounce of intergrity or energy. Although the rumors of frontman Zach De La Rocha's disdain for the release of the album have been blamed for the break-up of the band, "Renegades" still stands as yet another exercise in fist-pumping power and excellent and inventive musicianship. Truly, Rage Against The Machine in top form once again.

Hearing Zach spit out rhymes on hip-hop classics such as "Microphone Friend" and "How I Could Just Kill A Man" sounds only natural, but it's when the band ventures into other, less predictable territories that this album really shines. Perfect example would be their cover of Devo's "Beautiful World," a haunting, moving and surprisingly melodic commentary on the state of the world that still holds up today, just as it did in the 80's, and takes the Rage sound into a new realm. On the flipside, "Kick Out The Jams" (originally by MC5), is a brilliant merger of the signature Rage style with the fury of old-school punk. One of the more energetic tracks, this song is truly the point where the album takes shape. "In My Eyes" (originally by Minor Threat) takes on the same tone as "Kick Out The Jams," and remains another highlight, but elsewhere, on the Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen covers, "Maggie's Farm" and "The Ghost Of Tom Joad," the band shows some true influences that never really stood out before.

Ever since I heard RATM's versions of N.W.A.'s "F___ Tha Police" and Public Enemy's "Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos" on the Live And Rare import, I wanted to hear what other hip-hop classics they could transform. I wasn't dissapointed. Evidently, the band has chosen songs from artists without whom there would have never been an RATM in the first place -- everything from Dylan, the Stones, the MC5 and the Stooges to Springsteen, EPMD(!), Cypress Hill, and Afrika Bambatta. and Their versions of Eric B. & Rakim's "Microphone Fiend" and Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill A Man" in particular don't dissapoint at all. I was both surprised and pleased to not only hear RATM cover Minor Threat and Iggy & The Stooges ("Down On The Street"), but to hear Zach De La Rocha SING rather than rhyme on "Kick Out The Jams" and "Beautiful World" (although I honestly didn't expect RATM to turn the latter into a ballad!). This album could have been a milestone RATM release and a hint at their musical direction... unfortunately, unless Zach changes his mind and/or they settle their differences and get back to business, it could end up being the last, at least with the original lineup. Which is too bad, because with King George II waiting in the wings to destroy the country he is supposed to serve, we need more aware, conscious artists like Rage Against The Machine and the much missed Dead Kennedys (rather than ignorant slacker bands like Korn and Godsmack) to get through the next four years. God help us all if there's still an America left in 2004, or even 2001...

To put it bluntly, this album rocks. A lot. Rage has taken some of the music that inspired them and made it their own. Too often cover songs ape the original and don't add anything. This time, the songs stay true, but are stamped with Rage's signature. There are numerous reviews for this album on this website, so I won't try to say the same things.
Defiant and fierce, Zack de la Rocha's vocals match the intensity of the music. The Springsteen and Dylan songs work the best, putting a new twist on some good songs. There really isn't a "bad" track on here. One tune I have not seen much written about is "Housin'". The guitar riff during the chorus is a monster, and I can't help but feel a rush of power and the need to groove. "Pistol Grip Pump" offers an "I dare you" vibe, even if you're not from the streets. The attitude permeates the music, and that is what is most impressive. Make no mistake, this is not a Rage Against the Machine album. It comes across as a thank-you, both to the musicians past and present, as well as the fans. Even though I can't take this cd out of my player for very long, I cannot make the leap to calling this their best cd. They put it out, but it's not "theirs." If you're looking for pure Rage, any of their other three albums will do nicely.
