This review is from: Rage Against The Machine (Audio CD)
This is most definately an album that deserves at least 3 listenings to from everyone who says they like listening to music because it is very very very good.
The opening title track 'Bombtrack' is a perfect track to listen to to understand this album because it is almost like a round up of everything to come in the rest of the album. Driving guitar riffs and licks (yes licks) from Morello and angsty hip lyrics from Zach. In fact the only thing it really doesn't convey about the album is quite the intricate brilliance of Morello's soloing ability and guitar playing. What made Rage popular back then still holds so much appeal today. Real music fans will revel in this album because they are a truly unique sound and their debut album can easily be counted amongst the greatest rock albums ever.
Be patient with it on first listenings as conservative listeners might mistake it to be too 'Metal' or 'Hip-hop' for their tastes. With a broadened horizon comes the true appreciation of why this album is so great.
