  • Summary: The New York rap group's latest album.

  1. This is the most satisfying P.E. album in over fifteen years, both a throwback to their glory years and a hopeful sign of more great years to come.
  2. The results are surprisingly encouraging. Flavor Flav, having been turned by VH1 into even more of a caricature (if possible) than he already was, reminds PE fans that he is still a competent and efficient hypeman, and Chuck D sounds angrier and rawer than he has in years.
  3. It's hard to call an album this spirited and alive irrelevant.
  4. Another Public Enemy album is always good news for hip-hop fans, and How You Sell... carries the torch.
  5. Public Enemy remain fiercely independent and definately revitalized. [Nov 2007, p.176]
  6. Lyrically Public Enemy's new album packs no surprises. [Oct 2007, p.75]
  7. When you constantly remind the world how great you were, it rather detracts from the good stuff you're still capable of.

    A great album topped off with instant **** classic Harder Than You Think and good songs such as Black Is Back, you will not hear somethingA great album topped off with instant **** classic Harder Than You Think and good songs such as Black Is Back, you will not hear something this good on the radio, because radio mostly plays mainstream **** that ain't **** compared to the legendary Chuck D and Public Enemy Expand
