    The real gold is in tracks that didn’t make the final album, such as the funked-up Autologic and a jazz workout, Darkness Of Greed.

    For 50 minutes, Rage Against The Machine is in superb form, showing that its vision was strong from the start. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.92]

    Overall, Rage Against the Machine has aged extremely well.

    Ultimately, if there's any disappointment to be had with this near-perfect album, it's that it still towers above subsequent efforts as the unequivocal climax of Rage Against the Machine's vision. As such, it remains absolutely essential.

    Rage Against the Machine's 1992 debut is a grenade that keeps exploding.... Remastered to museum-clean standards, the reissued album comes with DVDs of holy-shit live shows and music videos, plus demos that prove just how down and detailed the group had every song (even if Morello still couldn't resist changing solos).

    Zack de la Rocha's fevered shout doesn't sound any more graceful now than it did then, but Tom Morello's riffs still cook, the grooves still burn.

    this is probably the best music I have listened to ever. I love rock music, especially rock music from the 90's and this brings the money to the table. it's too bad that this band is underrated, they deserve a lot more love and they actually sing about actually important stuff other than today's typical song of being in the club with a bunch of chicks RATM's music actually serves a purpose and once again, I love it!

    The disc of rough-around-the-edges demo tracks is worth the price of admission but this is a 90s classic in every way. I would've rated it a straight 10 even if the reissue were just a remastering of the original 10-track release. Full Review »
