5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Free Radical Musings, 24 Aug 2007
This review is from: The Battle Of Los Angeles (Audio CD)
Now while many say that Rages best record was the unstoppably furious debut, this is their true masterpiece. Its the sound of a more intelligent and focused band embracing raw experimental sounds. Now while the album is known for its stomping hits (Testify, Guerilla Radio and Sleep now in the fire) its actually on many of the hidden gems on this album that rage hits on to something. For example the exellent album tracks Born of a Broken Man, where rage fuse the time signatures of Led Zeppelin and the *Loud-Quiet* dynamics of many grunge and prog bands, coupled with Zachs poetry and Tom Morellos achingly sad riff produce one of the bands greatest songs. Theres also more quality stomping on Hip-Hoppers Calm Like a Bomb with more Space Ship noises from Tom Morello and a funky bassline from Timmy C and Mic Check which is virtually a Hip-Hop song gives a good opportunity for Zach to rock the Mic and some exellent DJ Scratching from Tom. While theres too many gems on this album to mention, any Rage against the machine fan or let alone fans of music should own this album. Awesome.
