Product Description

Amazon.ca

If Renegades proves to be the last Rage Against the Machine album to feature singer Zack de la Rocha, who quit the band after nine years, it's a cool way to go out. Produced by Rick Rubin, Renegades is a salute to the artists who made Rage what they are--or were. While it's easy to hear Rage's rap roots in songs from Afrika Bambaataa, EPMD, and Volume 10, it's more interesting to see their take on rock in its classic and punk forms. Rage capture the raw spirit, if not the quite the intensity, inherent in the MC5 classic "Kick Out the Jams." A superior second live take appears at the CD's end, followed by a concert version of Cypress Hill's "How I Could Just Kill a Man," with help from B-Real and Sen Dog. Devo's "Beautiful World" is rendered quietly unrecognizable, while Minor Threat's "In My Eyes" is given a wonderfully melodic, ultra-aggro treatment. The Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" takes on a techno vibe that's unsettling and Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" is also effectively modernized. Ultimately, Renegades is a must-have for its song selection, musical execution, and the unhappy fact that it's likely the ultimate offering from one of rock's most musically and politically relevant lineups. --Katherine Turman

Product Description

The Japanese version features 2 bonus tracks: Kick Out The Jams (Live Grand Olympic Auditorium), & How Could I Just Kill A Man (Live Grand Olympic Auditorium).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Rage, but a great effort Nov. 9 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Rage Against the Machine is well known for their brutal lyrics and heavy riffs. And although this CD keeps up with both of those aspects, it is missing some depth. Sure, it's all covers, but that doesn't mean Zack can't put a little more into it. In "It's a Beautiful World" and "Kick Out the Jams" he takes a different approach with singing as opposed to rapping. And Tom Morello does the same thing he's done for the past 3 albums, but I believe that Tim Commerford is the highlight of this album. His basslines are very well put together and thought out, and the two live tracks (especially "How I could just Kill A Man") compliment his skill very well. Another positive aspect of this CD is the depth it proves that the band has, they cover music from all genres from Bob Dylan to Cypress Hill. And it slightly redeems itself from the no-solo identical song "Battle for Los Angeles". It doesn't beat Evil Empire and Rage's self titled debut, but there is no doubt that this album is a highlight in its genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit me Baby one more time! July 31 2002
By K
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the great CDs that Britney has ever recorded!
Baby One More Time - Has a nice pop/sexy beat to it, which makes the song irresistable to listen to. No matter in what mood you are, you can never say no to this song!
Crazy - It also has one of the sexy beats! A typical Britney style, which is great!
Sometimes - Is a love song, about a girl (Britney) that is in love with this guy, but they don't really trust eachother! Great love song. It's better than "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart"!!!
Soda Pop - Is a very quick song. Not one of my favorites! It would rate 1.
Born to Make you Happy - a Semi/slow song which has great vocals! Also if you have seen the video, you might know how great this song is, it would receive 5.
From The Bottom of My Broken Heart - Is overly a good song, about a girl (Britney again), who never knew what love is until she met this guy, her first and true love. Then he tells her they have to break up. And she cries over him, and tells him how much he helped her to understand what love is. It's a very emotional song, not one of my favorites.
I Will Be There - Is sort of like a teen song. A real typical Disney song.
I Will Still Love You - An amazing love song. Britney duets with Don Philip, with great vocals that fit together in this heart-warming love song. Receives 4 stars, only.
Thinkin' About You - Not a very good song. 3 Stars.
E-Mail My Heart - This is the best song on the album! She explains that she hurt his feelings, and she tries to apologize to him with phone calls, and wants to email her heart to him. The greatest song with nice harmonies and great vocals and backup singing.

i've always been a fan of Rage, but this cd just blew me away! it was so sad to see zach leave the band, but what a cool way to go out!

1. Microphone Fiend: 10/10 Awesome way to start an album, this song will be in your head for days.
2. Pistol Grip Pump: 9/10 I'm not normally a huge rap fan, but zach really connects with the band on this one, great rythym!
3. Kick out the Jams: 8/10 Another incredible song, not about politics, but a great one to just bounce to at a party.
4. Renegades of Funk: 10/10 Deserves all the radio play it got, another amazing party beat, but with very meaningful lyrics if you listen to them.
5. Beautiful World: 5/10 Not one of my favorites. It's cool that the band tried to do something different, but this is just a little to different for me.
6. I'm Housin: 9/10 Excellent bass at the beginning, very mellow until the chorus, which makes you wanna yell along. One of my favorites.
7. In My Eyes: 7/10 I don't dislike this song, i just don't like it as much as all the others. But still good, don't get me wrong.
8. How I could just Kill a Man: 9/10 Amazing! They do a better job with this song than i think Cypress Hill did! Awesome beat, great lyrics, another headbanger.
9. The Ghost of Tom Joad: 10/10 A tie with microphone fiend for my favorite song of the album! meaningful lyrics, great beat and rythym, Tom Morello just outdoes himself every time.
10. Down on the street: 8/10 Just plain cool, hear it for yourself!
11. Street Fighting Man: 9/10 Another great one, luv the lyrics, zach puts the beat down like no other!
12. Maggie's Farm: 10/10 I never thought i'd see Rage cover Bob Dylan, but they do it and are great at it! Very deep and meaningful lyrics to go along with great music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tribute album from an excellent band Aug. 30 2001
By T-Diddy
Format:Audio CD
To put it bluntly, this album rocks. A lot. Rage has taken some of the music that inspired them and made it their own. Too often cover songs ape the original and don't add anything. This time, the songs stay true, but are stamped with Rage's signature. There are numerous reviews for this album on this website, so I won't try to say the same things.
Defiant and fierce, Zack de la Rocha's vocals match the intensity of the music. The Springsteen and Dylan songs work the best, putting a new twist on some good songs. There really isn't a "bad" track on here. One tune I have not seen much written about is "Housin'". The guitar riff during the chorus is a monster, and I can't help but feel a rush of power and the need to groove. "Pistol Grip Pump" offers an "I dare you" vibe, even if you're not from the streets. The attitude permeates the music, and that is what is most impressive. Make no mistake, this is not a Rage Against the Machine album. It comes across as a thank-you, both to the musicians past and present, as well as the fans. Even though I can't take this cd out of my player for very long, I cannot make the leap to calling this their best cd. They put it out, but it's not "theirs." If you're looking for pure Rage, any of their other three albums will do nicely.

This CD didn't live up to what Rage is known for. I will say that "Renegades of Funk" is my favorite rage song of all time.
