EDITORS’ NOTES

Like an expert bomb squad, Rage Against the Machine did little to upset their volatile fusion of Public Enemy polemics and Zeppelin-esque heft on their sophomore album. Megaton mosh-pit strikes like “Bulls on Parade” and “Down Rodeo” delivered more of the earthquaking grooves and brain-scrambling guitar frequencies that powered the band’s explosive 1992 debut, while Zack de la Rocha continued to spit out furious rhymes about the sort of topics (income inequality, the military-industrial complex) that no other ’90s alt-rock star would touch.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Great Album!

By far, this is Rage's best album. Be sure to listen to the overlooked songs! Snakecharmer, Tire Me, Wind Below, Roll Right, and Vietnow are the songs I recommend. (oh, and the rest too!)
All songs are great: 10/10!!!

This is a great must buy for anyone that loves Rage Against the Machine, and anyone that likes REAL music.

Prime Rage

No other Rage captured as much passion and angst as this album did. I recently bought the album that has the track How I Can Just Kill a Man, thinking that it might have as much rawness as their first two albums. But to my dismay, it has very little creativity and energy that Evil Empire had. This is Rage in their heyday and is a must for any rock enthusiast!

Music good and lyrics are lousy.

Zack is naive. Go live in a communist country a bit and let me know how well the people are treated. I've been to two of them and you really have no idea. By the way, seems you don't mind the capitalist money you hypocrite.
