    This is how a hip-hop group reaches middle age: by placing themselves as part of a tradition, never lingering in the past but never desperately riding trends.

    A predictably righteous volley of rhyme grenades on race and pop-culture politics, tinged with grumpy nostalgia, it's startlingly potent.

    The best of The Evil Empire of Everything simmers like the frank dinner table conversation afterwards-a dialogue that white America rarely gets to hear and one that gets cut tragically short on this record.

    While it's naive to think PE will ever have the same impact it did back then, there's still too many strong moments on Evil Empire to dismiss it.
  5. Midway through, here comes some madman with the deeply stoopid "31 Flavors" and you realize it wasn't going along fine enough.

    Great album. Anyone who remembers PE from the old days and is interested in checking out one of their newer albums could do a lot worse than to pick this up. Full Review »
