Public Enemy’s first album from 1987. Hard beats and shouty raps. This sometimes get overlooked for latter albums, but you can’t front on the energy, aggression and range of subject matter.
The crackles on the old vinyl bring out the fire and edginess. Chuck eats up beats like munchies after a fat bag of weed.
This is a classic album and best owned in its true format (fuck the CD).
And the cover pic of the crew huddled ’round a turntable is just iconic.
