Their first four albums are not just classics but important recordings in american history. Fear of the Black Planet may be my choice as their greatest though It Takes A Nation... is equally great.

As a white kid, growing up in middle-class, suburban Canada, Public Enemy knocked me over. Powerful lyrics, powerful beats, powerful samples. I can only imagine what it did for a black kid from inner city Detroit...
