Let me start with why I still deeply appreciate this album. Because I'm old enough (31) to remember rap before it became soulless, mindless, directionless, impotent, arbitrarily aggressive. I grew up on rap and loved it. It was a vital artform and there were so many guys out there with interesting stuff to say. IT PAINS ME NOW TO SEE WHAT IT'S BECOME. The current conveyor belt of slaptards that roll out albums now with all the same themes, near identical covers, coming from uniformly empty heads, ugh, it just pains me.
And this album gives the finger to all that.
For that, Chuck D, I thank you. When you listen to the lyrics, this album identifies the sheer stupidity in rap today with an ease comparable to explaining that 2 + 2 = 4. But once upon a time, they made albums addressing issues, huge ones, tackling them with a grandiose sense of revolution!! Why this now? Well, because it's necessary. Guys like Chuck and KRS need to reclaim hip hop from the pimps and hos who are perpetuating a very embarassing characature of it. Chuck is still one of the finest MCs, the lyrics are still solid, the message is still vital. Thank you, PE for refusing to disappear.
Now, here's why this isn't a 5 star album: because I remember It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back. Because I remember Fear of a Black Planet. The production on those albums just couldn't be touched back then. I still remember clearly the day I bought It Takes a Nation and got it home. I listened to it and it floored me as few albums ever have.Read more ›
As always, Public Enemy remains constistent in delivering the valuable goods with their powerful substantial message that instantly grabs the listeners attention along with their top notch production that's never afraid to boldly explore different territory, yet never disappoints with individuality and orginiality.
CONGRATULATIONS PUBLIC ENEMY ON YOUR 20 YEAR SUCCESS AND KEEP "FIGHTIN THE POWER" FOR THE VOICE OF TRUE HIP-HOP !!!!!
The 16th song "The Land Whinning Road" acknowledges 20 years in the struggle, it's pretty solid too. I must say track 18 is horrible it seems like the banging tracks are minus Flav. Except for (3). This was a great CD but probably would have been better with a little less Flav. This CD goes 19 tracks deep, maybe too many songs, 14 would have been good. But to hear Chuck D blazing the light of Truth in his lyrics, has made me change my outlook on the current Hip Hop landscape.

Keep in mind that most reviewers here remember back when Hip Hop was rebelious. Most of the reviewers here can't stand what happened to Hip Hop since the mid 90s. Read morePublished on April 21, 2013 by Pablo
