Album 365: Day 86 - Rage Against the Machine - Evil Empire

Rage Against the Machine
Evil Empire

Favorite tracks:  People of the Sun, Vietnow, Tire Me
Sleeper tracks: Revolver, Year of tha Boomerang

I was late to the game with this band.  I only agreed to get this album after I read that the band (minus the not singer) was into Rush.

The record sounds killer.  The bass and drums are some of the best from that era.  "Bulls On Parade" was a great single.  I feel that the album is pretty front-loaded.  It could have ended with "Down Rodeo".  You can only get so many riffs on one record when you have a band like this.  Without a vocal melody, your options for variety are limited.
