Product Description

Amazon.ca

Having successfully fused music and politics from their start, inspiring both moshing and young minds in the process, Rage Against the Machine emerges in peak form with merely their third album in seven years. Guitarist Tom Morello is one of the most distinctive and innovative players of his era, and his foil, vocalist/lyricist Zack De La Rocha, is as unrelenting and inspiring as ever on The Battle of Los Angeles. Rage, whose past antics include performing naked with duct tape over their mouths to protest censorship, released Battle on Election Day, but the politics of the group can be separated from the sounds. Indeed, the 45 minutes of mayhem heard here can be enjoyed solely as rousing aggro hip-hop rock. There's more variety found on Battle than on its predecessors, however. "Sleep Now in the Fire" is one of their most straight-ahead rock tunes. The trippy guitar on "Calm Like a Bomb" is out there even for the adventurous Morello. And "Born a Broken Man" serves up lovely musical interludes. Overall, the more finely honed Rage heard on Battle may not inspire a generation of young revolutionaries, but they still stir up more mutinous spirit than the rest of the current rock pack. --Katherine Turman

CD works fine and is standard RATM, as in stellar rap-metal/rock, but the case was a little cracked on arrival. A little disappointing but I'm happy to have the CD in my collection

Angryband. Morello, Wilk, et al provide a killer backdrop to Zach DeLaRocha's furious lyrics. The liner notes don't even have lyrics for "Killing in the Name of..". Don't need them. Amazing tune

they are a serious hit and miss group and this disc is no exception.when they are on it's alright but when they miss oh well.this disc for me suffers from sameness to much of a good thing isn't what i want again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different and pleasant Aug. 18 2010
Format:Audio CD
This was a new try for me. I'm used to Black Sabbath,Iron Maiden and Godsmack sounds that I just love, but this album is not the same though it is quite heavy in its style. The singer style who is nearer of shouting than singing is nonetheless impressing. He sings with intensity. The music is well done, lots of things to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Majority of Americans Oct. 5 2007
Format:Audio CD
Its a great album, lots of vent in this one as well....As for the 1 star, I've gotta laugh at your statement. The majority of Americans obviously want Bush in office or he wouldn't be there (voting IS a novel concept, and it does happen) so don't worry, the system isn't broken. Lastly, people are entitled to their opinion, so thanks for posting, it sucks you are so narrow minded that you can't appreciate all types of music and pure emotion put into sound.

Cheers all

Honestly, what is the point of your review of this album? At first i thought it might be so critical because you were in a bad mood, or maybe had to take some anger out on SOMETHING. But then i read the other reviews that you had written. It seems to me that you just prase the type of music you enjoy (some kind of pop-rock c*ap by someone called Belinda Carlisle)and put down the kind of music other people listen to just because you have a different opinion of what is "good" music. Just because you dont like RATM, or Nirvana for that matter, doesnt mean you need to spew your biased opinion all over the place. If you have a problem with Rage, why dont you start your own website, or something of that sort. Better yet, just keep your pointless reviews to yourself and save the rest of us the pain of reading something so blatantly narrow-minded.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best albums ever July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is, at the moment my favourite album. I will tell you the best songs on the cd. I love Testify, Guerilla Radio, Calm like a Bomb, Sleep now in the fire, War within a breath, and ashes in the fall. the lyrics are great politicly charged and angry. This album establishes rage's place as the best by far rap/metal band of all time. that may sound repetative but it doesn't even say it enough. Zack DeLa Rocha is the coolest guy in the world. tom morello is in my opinion one of the best guiatists ever he is insane (i base that on nothing ha ha just kidding). rage may not be around any more but they popularized rap/metal and for that they will never be forgotten. if u r interested in the members of the band are now 3 of them are in the band audioslave. thank you for your time. ROCK ON!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best work July 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
In all of Rage's defiant individuality, they certainly never created a bad album, but even by lofty standards, Battle of Los Angeles is a watershed that surpasses all expectations. The drums and guitars that announce the album on "Testify" are as bold as any song they've made, but this time there's something else - the trace of a melody or two! A move to bold soundscapes and a snarky rhythm section is what really separates Battle and makes their protest something palatable - it didn't need to happen that way, but Rage loses none of its impact because of it.
