What can I possibly say about PE that hasn't been said a thousand times over? That's right--nada. At risk of sounding partisan (I am a Hip-Hop head from way back), no one, in any genre, in the late 20th Century impacted music the way Chuck and Co. did (save, perhaps, Nirvana). PE, at its best, was phenomenal--and "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" was PE at its pinnacle (with "Fear of a Black Planet" not terribly far behind). If you are a lover of music, buy this record. Shocklee's production is groundbreaking, and Chuck's flow is incredible--15 years later and the sound still isn't dated. Almost makes one long for a reunion. Chuck? Hank? Keith? Eric? Any chance of you guys getting back into the lab to revamp that Bomb Squad recipe?--together? Well--I won't hold my breath. Fortunately, with classics like "ITANOMTHUB" still in reach, I don't have to.
