From glynspsa
I do not agree with everything said on this album but there is no denying it is a passionate example of a particular movement at a particular moment in time. It is raw and hits hard it is unapologetic and completely not politically correct but this album is essential and should be played in history courses studying the late 60's early 70's Black American experience. POWERFUL.

A profoundly moving piece. I can't think of a more impassioned political album; it lurks under the surface of 60s protest songs, such as those of Bob Dylan and Joan Baez as well as the more tacky songs from the likes of Pete Seeger.

However, I find Scott-Heron a potentially more difficult artist to appreciate than say Ezra Pound or Roman Polanski - at least their views/actions don't push through into their art (literally). I frequently skip 'The Subject Was Faggots.'
