If Renegades proves to be the last Rage Against the Machine album to feature singer Zack de la Rocha, who quit the band after nine years, it's a cool way to go out. Produced by Rick Rubin, Renegades is a salute to the artists who made Rage what they are--or were. While it's easy to hear Rage's rap roots in songs from Afrika Bambaataa, EPMD, and Volume 10, it's more interesting to see their take on rock in its classic and punk forms. Rage capture the raw spirit, if not the quite the intensity, inherent in the MC5 classic "Kick Out the Jams." A superior second live take appears at the CD's end, followed by a concert version of Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill a Man," with help from B-Real and Sen Dog. Devo's "Beautiful World" is rendered quietly unrecognizable, while Minor Threat's "In My Eyes" is given a wonderfully melodic, ultra-aggro treatment. The Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" takes on a techno vibe that's unsettling and Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" is also effectively modernized. Ultimately, Renegades is a must-have for its song selection, musical execution, and the unhappy fact that it's likely the ultimate offering from one of rock's most musically and politically relevant lineups. --Katherine Turman

...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.

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.

I always enjoy it when bands cover songs by artists that influenced them. It gives some insight into where they are coming from, and demonstrates the continuing relevance of the artists they choose to cover. This album is a wide-ranging collection of rap, rock and folk (well, folk-rock anyway) songs given dynamic, modern interpretations. Musically, the playing is top-notch, a tight band at its best. Standouts: Springsteens's "Ghost of Tom Joad", the live version of the MC5's "Kick Out The Jams" Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" and EPMD's "Pistol Grip Pump" although all the tracks are great. De La Rocha is at his fire and brimstone best on many of these songs, particularly "Tom Joad", which in this version seems like their own song. One gripe: the liner notes don't identify the original artists, leaving the less knowledgeable in the dark. Overall, an excellent album that sadly is the band's last. Even if you don't share their politics, you have to admire their musicianship, attitude and sheer ability to rock.

If you don't already know, this album is all Rage remakes of songs by other groups. I find 7/12 of the remakes seem to have that Rage edge that you've come to expect from something sung by de la Rocha. The remaining 5 songs fall a little flat for me.

My favorites are:

Track 1 Microphone Fiend (original artist Eric B. & Rakim)
Track 2 Pistol Grip Pump (original artist Volume 10)
Track 4 Renegades of Funk (original artist Afrika Bambaataa)
Track 6 I'm Housin' (original artist EPMD)
Track 8 How I Could Just Kill A Man (original artist Cypress Hill)
Track 9 The Ghost of Tom Joad (original artist Bruce Springsteen)
Track 12 Maggie's Farm (original artist Bob Dylan)
