Rage Against the Machine: Evil Empire

Sound — 9
Type of music: rock. This is great rock. They have a great variety of they way they make the sound with their instruments. They use pedals to play and make a very original sound. This is not their best, but very great still. I would suggest playing some of these songs to learn what rock is about.

Lyrics — 8
This is not Zack's best lyrics. But he does pretty good. They don't flow as well as they usually do. They aren't his best skills on singing either.

Overall Impression — 9
This CD is not their best. It is with all of the other 85% bands and songs. The most impressive songs on this album are the last two: Roll Right, Revolver, and Year Of The Boomerang. These two songs being some of their top songs. I don't like some of the repetitiousness in this album. The repeating is completely unlike RATM. But I love Year of the Boomerang. If it were stolen/lost there is an 95% I would want it back, but an 85% I would buy it back.
