5.0 out of 5 stars Best Concious Rap Album Ever, 2 Jan 2013
By 
This review is from: It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back [VINYL] (Vinyl)
25 year or so on, has anybody managed to encompass so succinctly, music into struggle expression? KRS1 perhaps, Nas more recently and a few less thrusted groups/artists. The originality of this album still holds true to this very 2013 day. It came from nowhere and still remains out there - untouchable fugitive. Listening back it still has the same bass heart as it did those many head whopping years ago. Test of time 10/10, lyrical content 10/10, tracks 10/10. This is one of those albums that will never again be repeated. Of course Dre's 2001, NWA' Straight Outta Compton and Tha Dogg Pound were ground breaking albums but none so with such cutting razor edge and uppercut to nosebridge POWeffect as this album. Anyone who frequented Westwoods set at Scrubbs Park (the then younger Rodigan of hip hop wannabee)back in the mid 80's will never ever forget the intro of Rebel Without a Pause, anticipating that..."I dont know what this world is coming to..." duhn, duhn (terminator transformer scratch) fist clenched like a fisherman casting rod.. craniuum back touching spine.."Yes, the rhythm, the rebel..." WHOP IT OUT!...Listening back just makes your neck ache.....with pleasure!
