Rage Against the Machine: The Battle Of Los Angeles

Sound — 8
I'm not a fan of the whole rap rock music thing. But in this case, I will make a exception. RATM did pull of alot of songs that get you into it, whether you are a fan or not, and that takes talent. Plus they are songs that make you think and not just because of the lyrics.

The lyrics of there songs is what made me a fan of them. They are very political and very deep. From songs like "Calm Like A Bomb", "Sleep Now In The Fire", and of course "Guerilla Radio", they make the point that the most important thing you need in a song is great, powerful, and meaningful lyrics. These guy knew that and took it to heart.

If you want a meaningful band who is trying to just speak to truth with music instead of trying to make a buck, then you should go get this CD. No matter what type of music fan you are, I guarantee you will enjoy it. They are a "cut the bull s--t" band, and it shows in this CD.
