    You need to hear Rage at all cost, forget about their controversial themes and stuff like that. Their last album went as a bullet in the head a mind blowing sensation.

    Rage's worst album, but certainly still quality music no doubt. Some songs are just very odd and not usual for Rage and they are not that good. Others I found to be very good. So in general not the best of RATM but certainly still a album nonetheless.

  1. An outrageously accomplished and daring album-
  2. As could be expected, the set works best when the group focuses on material from its most recent forebears: rappers and hardcore bands.

    De la Rocha's rabid diatribes occasionally go overboard, particularly on the tracks (Eric B & Rakim's "Microphone Fiend" and Minor Threat's "In My Eyes," for example) that feed into the band's sometimes one-dimensional rap-metal groove. But when the band steps out of character -- as it does during its rudimentary take on MC5's "Kick Out the Jams" or its pacific reading of "Beautiful World" -- the results can seem truly transcendent.
