Formed in 1991, Rage Against the Machine opened the gates of a new boundary-obliterating rock-rap musical alliance with the band's literate and politically-charged debut album. Featuring band members Tim Commerford, Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk, Rage Against the Machine became a critical and commercial success, selling millions of copies around the world while attaining legendary status among alt-rock fans. To this day the album, and the band, remain standard-bearers for uncompromising incendiary rock.
Newly remastered for this anniversary release, Rage Against the Machine - XX will be available as a CD in three configurations: 1) 20th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Box Set housing two CDs, two DVDs, one 12" 180gm vinyl LP, one 40 page booklet and two-sided poster; 2) 20th Anniversary Special Edition featuring two CDs and a bonus DVD featuring six tracks in an oversized softpack and 3) 20th Anniversary Edition single compact disc (with three bonus tracks).

Only minor con is pretty much every studio track on here (with exception to Killing and Fistful) have a bit TOO much bass added to them. So I had to EQ the bass down a little on those tracks. But again I don't mind b/c the overall quality is definitely improved!
**Update: I ended up getting the recently released Hybrid SACD version of this album as a gift. I have to say, it even outdoes the 20th Anniversary Edition! Sounds even more clearer & cleaned up, and the excessive bass issue I mentioned noticing on the 20th Anniversary Edition is nowhere to be found here, so no need to EQ the bass down on this at all! It's mastered at a lower volume, so you can REALLY crank it up and it never gets TOO loud and always sounds "smooth & balanced." But it costs like 3-4 times this XX album does, so that's another factor to consider. Plus if you wanna rip it cuz it's a Hybrid Super Audio CD you'll need special software (Foobar, etc + a couple plugins) on your computer to do it.
The remastering is bog standard for the industry. It's super loud at DR6. The original CD sounds better to my ears and can be cranked.
Steve Hoffman remastered both of the original albums in SACD, and they are absolutely stunning. You can hear things in the room they played in to a better degree, and they DID NOT crush the dynamics at all nor is it a softened album. It just sounds completely amazing.
It might be more expensive, but this disc is a coaster IMO. Get it for the artwork. The original sounds better and the SACD kills it.
