Staff review by

Explosive. In my humble opinion, that is the best adjective for the self-titled debut of the American angry madmen Rage Against The Machine. Ten times the shockwave of a bomb, right in your face. A catchy, yet vicious message of hate to the authorities, to 'the man'. Ten times a call for battle, to stand for your (their) ideals and to call war upon the enemy, capitalism and the right-wing.

Rating: 9 One of my favourite albums of all time, the album that pretty much got me into metal. An album released on my birthday no less

  One of my all time favourite Albums. All Rage classics are in it.

  All killer no filler and I really mean that.

  Rap metal at its best. RATM were way ahead ot their time and released a timeless debut here.

Rating: 7 I can still remember clearly the first time I heard the song "Killing in the Name" on the radio and I just couldn't believe the power and the aggression. The swearing really shocked me too. I was a young, innocent, mild-mannered man.

Rating: 7 I loved this maaaany years back then, but to be honest except "Killin in the name of" and let's say "Bombtrack" the rest is somewhat the same loop...
