Product Description

Amazon.ca

Not since the days of the Clash and the MC5 has rock seen such political force as in the uncompromising debut from this L.A. quartet. Expanding the hip-hop/metal style of bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage tap the spirits of vintage Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, coupled with hardcore punk intensity and Public Enemy-style grooves. "Bombtrack" opens the LP with a shot of adrenaline and singer Zack de la Rocha's infuriated chorus of "Burn, burn, yes, you're gonna burn!" The intensity doesn't let up an inch on the militant "Killing in the Name" (with the inspiring chant, "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!"), the ultrafunky "Bullet in the Head," and the engrossing "Fistful of Steel." Tom Morello combines time-honored metal guitar riffs with sounds that suggest a hip-hop scratcher over a rhythm section that simply takes no prisoners. Intelligent and aggressive, this is unimpeachably one of the best hard-rock records ever made. --James Rotondi

Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Vlado Meller, a name synonymous with awful sounding records and CD's. The man who ruined the last four Red Hot Chili Peppers CD's with huge amounts of dynamic range compression, and the vinyl of I'm With You (Steve Hoffman's 4LP Stadium Arcadium vinyl is amazing), the man who ruined the last Jane's Addiction CD and vinyl, has now turned his destructive sonic signature to the great debut album from Rage Against the Machine. This new vinyl release sounds awful compared to the original. The CD has been raped of dynamics and sounds nowhere near as good as the 1992 Bob Ludwig-mastered CD (and Bob has done his fair share of ruining dynamics recently too, so I'm not saying he's a saint by any means).

The original vinyl was an all analogue production, it sounds absolutely stunning. The new vinyl, pressed at United in Nashville who are pretty well known for non fill and off centred sides, sounds like a pale shadow of the former. Utterly disappointing.

The original vinyl in Mint condition can run over $75, more if sealed. Fortunately the label Music On Vinyl in Europe repressed the original vinyl from the original metals recently and you can find that for around $40 in sealed condition, catalogue title is MOVLP043. They also repressed this new Vlado Meller XX remastering as MOVLP657, stay away from that one. MOV does very nice whisper quiet, flat pressings and the quality is very consistent.

The ASIN for the MOVLP043 on Amazon USA is B00004WX4E

5.0 out of 5 stars finally, real rap/metal July 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have to say, listening to Linkin Park, P.O.D, etc, RATM is by far the best rap/metal band out there. Alot of rap/metal bands just talk about sex drugs and stuff cough*, cough*, Limp Bizket, cough*. But Rage is differnt they talk about right and wrong. Zack De la Rocha is one of the most respected people out there for his political opinions on our US Government, his lyrics are expreesed in various amounts of anger in hardcore rap. Tom morello, 1 word, AMAZING, his guitar playing is crazy. And would you believe that most of these cool sounds are made by guitar, thats awesome. Timmy C with the bass, very good, the bass blends perfect with the guitar. And Brad wilk, another jaw dropper, his drumming is also amzing, when you listen to all the tracks, the drum pattern is perfect. There Self titled debut is filled with lots of great rap, guitar solos, and plenty of screaming.
1)Bombtrack (4:05) - great opener to the album, also a nice intro too. 8/10
2)Killing in the Name (5:14) - After listening to this track I was amazed, great song to listen to when you're pissed off, my third fav. track. 10/10
3)Take the Power Back (5:37) - a very political song with some great lyrics. 8/10
4)Settle for Nothing (4:48) - not my favorite but still good. Has a cool guitar solo. 7/10
5)Bullet in the Head (5:09)- cool guitar, another great track one of my favorite. 8/10
6)Know Your Enemy (4:55)- cool lyrics, and great guitar riffs. 9/10
7)Wake Up (6:04)- first heard it in the matrix, another great guitar, best lyrics. 10/10
8)Fistful of Steel (5:31)- meh, ok. 6/10
9)Township Rebellion (5:24)- meh, ok. 6/10
10)Freedom (6:05) - An excellent way to finish the album, my favorite track. 12/10
In all, out of all the best RATM albums pick this up first then move up to there other ones, Evil Empire, Battle of L.A, Renegades, and Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium.

5.0 out of 5 stars "When ignorance reigns, life is lost..." July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first got into Rage Against The Machine in 7th grade, when I was into crap like Limp Bizkit and purchased Evil Empire because people said I would like it if I liked Limp Bizkit. In retrospect, that comparison is a big insult to Rage. That's like comparing "Goodfellas" to "You Got Served".
Anyway, I really liked (and still like) Evil Empire (especially "Vietnow"). However, I didn't get this album until this past January. Before then, I had a few of the songs on mixes, but that's it. I listened to samples in the store and really liked what I heard, so I purchased it. Forget Wimp Bizkit; this is rock-rap done RIGHT!
First of all, the musicians here; Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk (now of Audioslave); are all very talented. Check out the slap bass, the riffs, the drumming. Add Zack De La Rocha's politically-charged rhymes over top of them, and you get what might be the only band in history influenced by both Led Zeppelin and Public Enemy, which may sound like mixing pizza and ice cream but comes out sounding damn good. Most of the songs on here are favorites.
The angry, anti-authority/government diatribes are what made this album a classic twelve years ago. Before 1992, there weren't too many albums with "[...] you, I won't do what you tell me!" as a lyric. And I think "When ignorance reigns, life is lost" is very relatable to the Iraq war going on today.
Overall, if you want a REAL rap-rock record, check this one out first, then get the others.(...)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best recorded debut albums of all time June 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
The uncompromising self titled debut album of the politically motivated and vitrol charged band Rage Against the Machine remains one of the best recorded albums of all time and the best piece of material to ever come from the group. The combination of rap, Zeppelin inspired riffs (check out "Wake Up"), and guitarist Tom Morello's sonic fueled solos made this album a real winner, but vocalist Zack de la Rocha's politically charged lyrics (which weren't misaimed much like on this album's follow up "Evil Empire") are the real highlight. Every single song, from the rip roaring opener "Bombtrack", to "Killing in the Name", to "Take the Power Back", "Bullet in the Head", and the closing "Freedom" are all masterpieces that don't get stale. This is the album that put RATM on the map, nothing they had done since would ever be as profound as their debut album, and even after almost fourteen years after it's release, this remains their masterpiece.

Classic record. Prefer the sound on the original cd I had in the 90s. Some things don't need to be remastered. Like, are we going to repaint the mona lisa? Read more
