Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy, Cypress Hill - three great tastes that taste great together. I love political music in that it expresses the artist's opinion. I don't have to agree with it, but a well constructed argument is a pleasure to hear. My only complaint is how serious the music is. One fun-oriented song to break the tension at the end or 3/4 of the way through would have gotten 5 stars.
Im a fan of rage against the machine, and im a fan of prophets of rage. I can't wait for this album tp drop
Not bad at all. Not as heavy as typical Rage but really fun groovy funky bass and riffs. I enjoyed it all the way and political songs are much needed right now. Better than expected. My favorite album of 2017 as of now.
The guitar riffs are great. Solid beats, use it for workouts. I have no problem with the opinions expressed in the lyrics. Free speech . But objectively the hooks are uninspired and repetitive. Every song title is repeated as a lyric 30-40 times. That's just lazy writing. Was disappointed by this. RATM and PE were politically charged but their lyrics were poetic and clever. TL;DR A- for musicality C- for lyrics (QUALITY of the writing, not content)
The strongest stand up for what they believe in, and Tom Morello puts his best foot forward. The technicality of his style is unmatched, and the political edge of the lyrics, whether with RATM or Prophets, gives the music the energy it needs to hit hard and strike a chord with nearly anyone who listens to it. Can't wait for this album.
Music is about a message. Sorry that the children of the 1% and the Trump voters don't like hearing what they disagree with or can't/refuse understand. It's ok when the music is violent, negative, misogynistic and lacking any substance though. The same ones complaining are the same ones who try to convince themselves racism doesn't exist and police won't kill you if you allow them to violate your constitutional rights. You don't like it because you can't identify with it. But, there lies the contradiction, ALL of these artists have been socially conscious and have reflected that in their music. What did you expect from a group with Chuck D, Rage and B Real? Trap music? Gunplay? Glorification of meaningless violence?
