(Produced by The Imperial Grand Ministers Of Funk)
(Executive Produced by The Bomb Sqauad)
1.Lost At Birth-4.5/5-Chuck D drops only 1 verse on this one, but its a great intro
2.Rebirth-4.5/5-Only 59 seconds, but Chuck drops another hot verse
3.Nighttrain-5/5-Definately one of the best tracks on the CD, great flow and energy from Chuck, and hot production (Samples Kool Moe Dee's 'How Ya Like Me Now')
4.Can't Truss It-5/5-Another stand out, one of the best tracks lyrically from Chuck, and more of some of the best production on an album of all time in my opinion (Samples Run-DMC's 'Dumb Girl')
5.I Don't Wanna Be Called Yo N****-4/5-Flava Flav is basically rambling on the whole track, but there's some stand out production
6.How To Kill A Radio Consultant-5/5-Chuck's flow is especially hot on this one
7.By The Time I Get To Arizona-5/5-One of the great things about Chuck is that he is a smart MC, and raps about social and political issues. Not something you'll find in the average rapper. Another one of my favorites on the CD (Single)(Featured in 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4')
8.Move!-5/5-Another great high energy track (Featured in 'Def Jam Fight For NY')
9.1 Million Bottle Bags-5/5-Great song adressing alchohol in America (over a hot beat, too)
10.More News At 11-5/5-Short song, but a hot flow from Flav
11.Shut Em Down-5/5-Another one of the best on the CD, great lyrically (Later sampled by DJ Premier/The Notorious B.I.G.Read more ›
It was certainly true in 1991.
Yes, in the past 2 decades, we've watched President Bill Clinton improve the USA's image regarding race relations.
Yes, the Bush Cheney Keystone Kops were only about 50% successful in their genocide bids.
And, the election of Illinois Senator Barack Obama in 2008 pointed the way to a brighter future.
Life isn't always 'nice and easy.'
Ridiculous speculators destroyed the economy in the months leading up to Obama's inauguration.
Bullies continue to foist their brutality on anyone they don't like.
Instead of respect, tolerance, and optimism, planet Earth at the end of 2013 looks to be a land of caution and mistrust.
I read some of Public Enemy pooh-bah Chuck D's writings, around the time of the 2008 Presidential Elections.
Naively or not, I agreed, that however flawed Obama and other Democrats are, they appeared up to the task of fixing a broken country.
Well, it looks as though the three-piece-suit KKK that Chuck D sings about on this recording are still in charge.
America's "lone superpower" status was a new thing in 1991.
Perhaps if 'Apocalypse 91' had reached a wider audience back then, this review would make more sense.
Sure, some things are good in America today.
Just like in 1991.
Then again, the bad stuff is still intolerable.
We hear about what a "meritocracy" dorks like Bill Gates and Vladimir Putin have crafted.
Turns out, the new boss IS the same as the old boss.
If not for diversions like professional sports, we might see the USA's phony meritocracy disintegrate into anarchy.Read more ›
