    Spending the last decade releasing mediocre discs with great tracks surrounded by filler, Public Enemy returns with an album reminiscent of Fear of a Black Planet.

    Public Enemy are still making music of great substance and potency. [Dec 2002, p.122]
  3. The grooves here prove Chuck D and Flavor Flav can bring the noise of old.

    Not, perhaps, the best overview of their work, but bound to satisfy loyal fans. [Jan 2003, p.123]

    Revolverlution is part-skewed retrospective and part-flawed experiment. [Jan 2003, p.126]

    This is simply a useful rampage through the best and worst impulses of the most important group in hip-hop history. [#9, p.153]
