Biography

Until Public Enemy, hip-hop was wrapped up in gold chains, fast women and being top dog in rap throwdowns. But with the group's rise, hip-hop gained a social and political consciousness. Emphasizing pride and condemning prejudice, Public Enemy became the most influential and controversial rap group of its time, hailed by history and by all who have since followed.

This album just pumps. This was the first Hip Hop album I ever bought and was instantly converted. PE's music has and always will be unlike any other. The production is amazing, lyrics political but yet enlightening (Shut em Down and Cant Truss it) and every song moves with a sense of purpose which cant be said for 90% of the stuff which is churned out by the bucketload these days. If you like smart production and intense lyrics, check this album out

This album represents the end of Public Enemy's best period, their fourth album in a 5 year period when they blew everyone away and inspired the political "afrocentric" period of hiphop.
The strain is already starting to show as the album never quite lived up to it's predecessor "Fear of a Black Planet", yet there is undeniable quality here in tracks like "shut em down" and "By the time I get to Arizona".
It's a storming noisy militant album, with Chucka nd Flav still spitting over some incredible hooks, the originality of their sound not yet worn thin. I wish they were still as good and as consistent as this...

More cliched than PE's other releases, but has some of the best songs they ever did, and definitely some of Chuck's best vocals. Check the fantastic By The Time I Get To Arizona and Nighttrain. One of my favourite rap CDs.

I've just rebought this album - one I loved a few years back but lost my cassette version somewhere along the line. I think first rap album I purchased...
Even if 'Fear of a black planet' or 'Takes a nation of millions...' might be more revered, and it came out a bit after their golden age, there is genius at work here.
I love 'By the time I get to Arizona...' - it's got that epic intro and great lyrics with PE raging over a state with sparkling PR sheen but a stinking underbelly. "what's a smiling face when the whole state's racist"... A line delivered with
righteous anger! Worth getting the album for that track alone.

Top quality album which was way ahead of its time when it was released back in '91. A must for any serious hip hop fan.
