4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid, sometimes outstanding June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
In some ways this sounds like a "lost" RATM album, but with Boots Riley of The Coup rapping instead of Zack. Tom's guitar playing is just sick throughout (in a good way) and as someone else said, it's great for blasting in the car. I have a 40-minute commute and I got this for that very ride; it's hard-rocking, anthemic rap-rock. The drum and bass is tight and ferocious, as you would expect, though nothing revelatory.

That said, Boots's lyrics aren't his best here. He has to kind of shout over the band, so his sly delivery is somewhat lost, and there are moments of rah-rah sing-along choruses that sound a little weak. Happily, you're never too far rom the next slashing guitar rave-up or unexpectedly wiseass lyric from Boots, so it's all okay.

If you like RATM or hard-edged funk-rock, I would recommend this album. if you're not familiar with Boots, I'd point you to his day job, The Coup. And Dimabag, thanks a lot for the heads-up about the censored download. I almost got that, since it was only [...] bucks; but it's annoying to have other people decide what is "safe" for you to hear. Glad I picked up the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! June 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to this album, I love the Coup, I love RATM, this album really combines the best of both. Boots Riley's voice and lyrics are wonderful and live up to the idea of jams for the revolution and with Tom's music which is very much like what he did with RATM, it's already one of my favorite albums. For the car, for the gym, for any place. It's impossible not to move to or to think about.
ETA: I originally wrote this review on June 17, 2009. Now it's May 5, 2010. This album has consistently been in my "On the Go" playlist on my ipod and I've recommended it to everyone. The most I listen to it, the more I like it.
Boots Riley from the political hip hop group, The Coup writes very well done raps about society and poltics, it's very topical and controversial. When you put his great lyrics and voice with Tom's music which is just some of the best heavy metal out there, it's a great fusion of sound that has become my favorite project for both musicians.
If you like this album, and you haven't listened to the Coup, I recommend Pick a Bigger Weapon as a very approachable album by the Coup. I also recommend Tom Morello's One Man Revolution for a clearer view of Tom's politics.
If you just want good rock and don't care much about politics, this is still a great album that Audioslave and Rage Against the Machine fans will appreciate.

3.0 out of 5 stars STREET SWEEPER SOCIAL CLUB - HOW IS IT? December 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I know that SSSC MC Boots Riley has tweeted that they are not the "new Rage Against The Machine, we're the new Sly & The Family Stone. With a plan." I don't know that they're quite Sly & The Family Stone, but they are more funky than Rage, and a bit more fun. They're just as "politcal," but Rage's Zach de la Rocha just never lightens up, and Boots clearly enjoys the fact that he is a great frontman. He knows you can dance to revolutionary music, an idea that Zach probably isn't super into. I think half the album is great, the other half is good, and I am definitely looking forward to their next album. I don't know if Tom is going to do another Nightwatchman album and if Boots will work with The Coup before doing another Street Sweeper record.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Tom's signature guitar playing is back on this album and I must say that he didn't do a bad job on the bass guitar either. This album is something that you put in your car stereo and put all the windows down and bump. The lyrics are fresh and original. I think anyone that is a Rage fan will love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy riffs, heavy lyrics March 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Rage Against the Machine is my favorite band, and I bought this cd out of my longing for a new RAtM album. The riffs Morello cranks out (while a little less imaginative) sound like something you'd find on RAtM's first album, which I enjoy a lot. Although I prefer de la Rocha, Boots also throws in powerful lyrics that are reminiscent of Zack's, such as "I pledge to get their foot off my neck. Instead I shall demand my respect, I'll fight even if I won't win." This cd contains many tracks with catchy, explicit choruses that are fun to belt along with, and I recommend it, especially if you like Rage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall, a good album, but somewhat disappointed July 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Street Sweeper Social Club on MTV2 by seeing their video for "100 Little Curses." I thought that the song was amazing and just had to buy this album. Unfortunately the rest of the album didn't live up to "100 Little Curses." Its not that the songs are bad or anything, but its just that none of them really lived up to what I liked in "100 Little Curses", maybe with the exception of Promenade.

However, Tom Morello's very distinct guitar is alive and well, and should make fans of Rage Against the Machine happy. Boots Riley also does a good job on the vocals.

Again, this is not a bad album, but there aren't exactly any songs that I could personally call 'good.' But if you are a big fan of Tom Morello's style or the rock-rap genre, then this might be an album you want to check out.

Two By Two, Promenade/ Duck From A B1 Bomber Raid- (Promenade)

Not everyone can get away with using the word Tiananmen in a rhyme like Zach De La Rocha, but Boots Riley is close enough and very funny with his politically conscious context.

Although totally political, Boots comes across more like Flavor Flav than Chuck D, but that's alright because he is smart enough to make it work.

It's weird hearing Tom Morello without Tim Cummerford or Brad Wilk backing him up, but he still manages to pull it off and keeps it real.

This is a great album and although it won't make you forget Rage Against the Machine, it will totally demonstrate that there is life after Rage Against the Machine.
