CD Reviews

The impact this record had on hip-hop is undeniable!
Tyfoon | 01/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There were three records that changed hip-hop forever. Those records were Public Enemy's "It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back", NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" and Run-DMC's self-entitled debut. The 12-inch "Sucker MC's" was a revolutionary song and a major breakthrough. Before Run-DMC, hip-hop had only been straight party-music, but when "Sucker MC's" arrived, all you heard was two voices and a drum, squashing wack rappers at the spot. Run-DMC was hip-hop's first supergroup, and they were straight ripping it. If there was only three records that deserved 5 stars, then it would be the three mentioned above.CLASSIC!"
FORGET ALL THE "FIRST RAP ALBUM STUFF", this is pure GOLD!

"The sound is incredible, its like they are in your crib rhymin' --
EXCELLENT REMASTERING!!! Wow, I can't say enough about it.
The songs still sound great over twenty years later and have more to say in one song than you can find on a whole rap album today!
Please do yourself a favor and get their first three albums instead of the Greatest Hits. Please, please, please...please?
THIS IS THE BEST ALBUM OF THEIR CAREER, GET IT NOW...
ITS LIKE THAT AND THAT"S THE WAY IT IS...
IF YOU DON'T THIS TIME [YOU] SHALL RETURN!"
Hail to the king

"Gold chains, Kangols and leather jackets, Run DMC made it very clear that they were not into the style of space odyssey like Afrika Bambaataa or the street-glam fashion of Grandmaster Flash. Nor did these Hollis crew kids buy into the early hip-hop/rap chemistry that stressed 12-inch singles over full lengthed albums.

Run DMC's Run DMC is easily and simply hip-hop's first classic album. It set the stylistic and musical proocedure for future rap releases. The ruthless but classic Sucker MC's became a shocking revolution during hip-hop's earlier years while Rock Box was the first ever hip-hop track to feature guitars over hip-hop tracks.

Both Run and DMC had ruthless and tough-minded lyrics that were very versatile, whether it was reporting harsh realities of life (Hard Times) or hailing their DJ as the world's best (Jam Master Jay). But this was only the beginning for the three kids, who would soon turn into living legends, in reality and mentally.

R.I.P. Jam Master Jay, your presence is truly missed by the many."
