Incredible to think 'The Battle Of Los Angeles ' remains RAT's most recent release of original material , the album is now nudging 19 years by 2018

IMHO this is a real mixed bag...

"Guerrilla Radio" is sublime and one of THE great songs period

"Testify " , "Calm Like a Bomb" , " Sleep Now In the Fire " and " War Within a Breath " are all GREAT and I could listen to them all day

The other tracks are merely ok and "Maria" is a bit of a stinker

Fortunately the terrific tracks carry this album and I definitely prefer its more polished package versus their debut which was way too ARGHHHHHHHH ..... from beginning to end

You must jump on to YouTube and check out the official videos for Guerrilla Radio / Sleep Now In the Fire and Calm Like a Bomb . They really are incredible and compliment this album perfectly

Better than Evil Empire, but not as exhilarating as their debut. A little "Safe" in comparison, but wtf, it's a good album.

I really enjoyed this album a bit. Energetic and explosive instrumentals through and through. The lyrics did seem a bit forced and disjointed at times, as if hes just shouting random political words. But other than that i really enjoyed it, definitely in my top ten albums of its decade.

About equal to Evil Empire for me.

On one hand, this album does feel a bit "safe" to me. More or less, Rage has returned to the sound of their self-titled debut. Only this time around, the songs are shorter in length and have less profanity, making them more radio-friendly.

On the other hand, this album is definitely more consistent than Evil Empire, and it contains one of my favourite RATM songs: "Calm Like A Bomb".

Absolutely a ground breaking group and album. Music that reminds you of the 1960 and 1970's bands that were protesting everything from Vietnam to politics in general. Of course with a late 90 's and early 2000's sound.

My parents raised me on R&B and Soul, and a little Hip-Hop. When this album dropped, I was only 8 years old. It was my first real exposure to any sort of rock music. The first album I ever got.

I know opinions are sort of split: half the people I talk to say this was RATM's best, while others say the self titled was better. True, TBoLA does have deeper songwriting, and lyrics. But I have to say that even with that, nothing can compare to how hard-hitting this band's debut was. I prefer the debut album, but TBOLA was great in it's own right. Love this album, and love this band.
