Staff review by

Explosive. In my humble opinion, that is the best adjective for the self-titled debut of the American angry madmen Rage Against The Machine. Ten times the shockwave of a bomb, right in your face. A catchy, yet vicious message of hate to the authorities, to 'the man'. Ten times a call for battle, to stand for your (their) ideals and to call war upon the enemy, capitalism and the right-wing.

Rating: 9 One of my favourite albums of all time, the album that pretty much got me into metal. An album released on my birthday no less

  All killer no filler and I really mean that.

  Rap metal at its best. RATM were way ahead ot their time and released a timeless debut here.

Rating: 7 I can still remember clearly the first time I heard the song "Killing in the Name" on the radio and I just couldn't believe the power and the aggression. The swearing really shocked me too. I was a young, innocent, mild-mannered man.

Rating: 7 I loved this maaaany years back then, but to be honest except "Killin in the name of" and let's say "Bombtrack" the rest is somewhat the same loop...
