'Rafi's Revenege' is a powerful statement, both musically and culturally. Musically, it is hard not to compare the young Brixton lads to the US's Rage Against the Machine- political rant/rap with squealing guitars and pounding beats. But really that's where the similarities end. ADF combines several flavour to the mix- rap, ragga, jungle and even a touch of bollywood, sometimes unsuccessfully. Agenda wise, ADF succeeds where RATM failed- there is a consistent political focus to ther writing- the acceptance and accreditation of South Asian and Afro Carribean youth in the United Kingdom. This is the focus of the album, and it never strays from its mission. The band however loses its intensity in the middle of the album- after pummeling through the first four tracks, the album mellows out to a blunted ragga beat, only to return to fired intensity with 'Operation Eagle Eye.' This band was built on the hyper dynamics of Das's rapping with the rubberband interaction of drum and bass with guitar pyrotechnics, and they chose to omit it for a 1/3 of the record. To really get a feel for this fabulous group, locate their live album, 'Concious Party'- it indeed captures their frantic energy and true colours. Look for good things in the future for ADF!

This album is exellent from start to end! Sometimes it is groovy, and sometimes in shakes with rage. The lead singer/rapper sounds a bit like Zack de la rocha of Rage against The Machine, his rap spit political fire! The 5 East Indian members are musical wizards that create innovative beats. With political lyrics that make you wanna get involved and beats that make ya wanna bop your head, especially on songs like "dub mentaliy". This is somethin that will catch your musical ear sooner or later!!!!!

With music becoming more of an industry than an art form, its is very hard to find good music. This album is better than good its incomparable! With vicious verbal attacks, mesmerizing Drums & Bass and dubbish guitar rifts this is a musical blend to perfection. Anyone who rates this album low has not had the opportunity to really grasp the power of this albumn. Its concious messages rang from racism to police brutality and although sometimes difficult to decipher Master D spits some of the best lyrics since Illmatic,no joke! Along with Illmatic, Rage Against the Machine, Blue Lines, Liquid Swordz and Entroducing this is one of the best albumns let out not only in this decade but ever. Support good music! Buy this album.

Now everybody listen....... this album has got a bit of stick because of john pandits very politcal songs including tunes about freeing a wrongly convicted asian man and a tribe in asia who have been messed up; NAXALITE (my personal fav) i bought this album purely based on the buzzin single and let me tell you lady's and gentlepersons this is truly amazing and never bores. just whack it on and you can listen to it all the way through without getting a second of boredom. buy it now and help fund pandits pockets. also Master D (the rapper) isn't bad for a 16 year old and has wicked rapping ability. Check it out NOW

The sound is a cross between Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine and Jamaican Rankin'. But you know what? It works. Solid bass and drum in the back. Great sound engineering. The music is well architectured with driving lyrics.
Some HighLights: Naxalite: Fast & furious. Culture Move: Excellent Baseline.
These guys are on a mission to blend Indo-Asian sounds with Afro-Jamaican beats and from the sounds of this album, I think they are on their way...

Before the misnomer of Asian Underground was ever quoted, there were a handful of truly politically conscious musical rebels of the South Asian diaspora. ADF (and possibly early Fun-da-mental) truly defined and perfected this genre and this album proves it. "Rafi's Revenge" is actually a re-energized and re-recorded version of the French only release "R.A.F.I." from the year before. Where "R.A.F.I" was an excellent album, "Rafi's Revenge" achieved perfection. Musically, "Rafi's Revenge" is heaviest on the ragga jungle/drum and bass side with healthy doses of organic samples (thanks to Sun-J and Pandit G), seering guitar statements (via Chandrasonic), and pulsing yet melodic dub bass lines (from Dr. Das). The young Deeder's unmatchable mc'ing, rapping, toasting, and chanting takes their music to an even higher level of musical depth. If this was all that ADF had to offer they would still be superb, but their lyrics leap ADF into dimensions rarely attained. Listen to Naxalite, Assassin, and Free Satpal Ram. If you don't understand the South Asian diaspora's past and present, you'll soon get your enlightment and realize that all of these themes and messages are indeed global and universal. ADF proved the best way to change the world is to change the way we listen to music...that is, make sure the music is as radical as the lyrics, never compromise on your spirit of experimentation, always push musical boundaries, but most importantly, produce some of the most incredible music that anyone has ever heard regardless of musical genre. Asian Dub Foundation...Zindabad!!!
