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.

- this is one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time! -

The idea of combining two of the most popular styles of music, rock and rap, together seems so simple and almost brainless. Surprisingly, no other band but RAGE has successfully pulled it off. Every member of the band brought an equal amount of talent to the album. Many believe that Zack de la Rocha and Tom Morello were the main elements in the success of the band but, even Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk played huge roles with the energetic build ups of every song from track 1 right up until track 10. Song writers now a days no matter the genre or style have forgotten a golden rule while creating music: every piece of music must lead and build and change. Every song on the album did just that. Change is one of the most evident themes presented by the band both musically and lyrically through Zack's powerful politically-charged poetry. Every part of this album has been so perfectly crafted, from the shocking album artwork of the famous burning monk to the musicality expressed by each musician, including the guest artist Maynard James Keenan from the band Tool who had a short solo in the middle of "Know you enemy". In conclusion, I am proud to say that this is no doubt my favorite album so far in my life time. I also have to admit, with all the publicity and importance of band images in music today, this is the one and only band I loved uniquely for their music before even seeing what they looked like(though the band t shirts are pretty cool to look at!)
Sorry if I got a little carried away but, this debut album from a band which could have easily been just as popular and well-known as Led Zeppelin or Nirvana is definitely a must-have, in fact every living human being should own a copy of this masterpiece. Then maybe politicians would know a little something about politics. LOL

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply put, Insane. June 23 2004
By nick
Format:Audio CD
This album is incredible. Tom Morello is pheraps one of the greatest guitarists ever. Ever. No synthesisers. Insane. Reading the reviews about people who liked the album, and people who didn't, the people who didn't often cited "white boy" politics and some reviewrs called them liberal propaganda or something. I don't know I dont really pay attention 'cuase I can tell when it is an actual competent adult or a 9 year old whoes daddie's in the NRA. Yea. Tom Morello is so awesome.
