Sound — 10
Rage Against The Machine have always delivered in sound. Tom Morello is a good guitar player. A lot of the effects he uses on the guitar works for a lot of the songs. The sound is always hard hitting making you want to bang your head.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are what make Rage Against The Machine different from every other band. They aren't afraid to sing about issues going on in the world. The lyrics have political meaning in some of the songs if you listen carefully. Zack De La Rocha raps them well. His voice is like a cry to be heard. Both the lyrics and Zach are worth the listen.
Overall Impression — 10
I love this album over their self titled debut. Tom Morello plays great and Zach De La Rocha sounds awesome. The best songs on this albulm are all of them in fact. The albulm is one that deserves to be listened to all the way. If your into political stuff or are pissed at what the world is doing then listen to The Battle of Los Angeles. It's one of the best cds I've ever bought.
