That how someone at my university enthusiastically described the 1st album by “rap metal” band from Los Angeles, California – Rage Against The Machine.
Known these days mostly for annoying Simon Cowell in the traditional Christmas No.1 race a few years back has slightly shrouded how refreshingly angry this sounded just before grunge made a generation shrug and say ‘Well, whatever, nevermind’. RATM named names and targeted the institutions that had grown powerful under Reagan in the 80s. Painfully right on perhaps, hectoring but somone has to do it and Tom Morello is a deserved guitar hero for a generation.
Yes you may never need to hear Killing In The Name again but this is a thrillingly bolshy listen *gulp* 25 years on
