Like a bomb ass three legged table, if any individual leg were to break the entire structure would keel over. Its remarkable how Terminator X, Chuck, and Flava flav elevate and uplift one another's talents, each accenting the others perfectly

Some of the best hip-hop right here! Could be shortened a bit, but the vibe persists throughout.

Dad-Hip-Hop? Whether, this album is still as intense and invigorating as all get out, never relenting on the bully-ball, confrotational attitude for a full hour and that dense sample-a-licious production suits it perfectly.

A little overlong and fatiguing in the back half, but unrelenting as all get out. Not to mention that this is produced to perfection. I kinda love it.

Another album that I think I'm going to love based on the first few tracks, which then turns into a minefield, albeit one peppered with gems.

The other essential Public Enemy album after, millions. Essential rap tracks that still sound utterly fresh today. Welcome to the terrordome, 911 is a joke, and, fight the power, all solid stuff. Still, the G that killed me, hasn't weathered well, easily the worst track on the album. The rest? Indispensable.
