"Four self-styled "political activists" rant against the evil, white-corporate-male, woman-commodifying, minority-oppressing, developing-nation-exploiting hegemony. Without a single new idea, RATM's music simply regurgitates Noam Chomsky style rhetoric in a way that makes Matt Damon's ignorant monologue in Good Will Hunting seem tolerable. Sure, these guys are Communists, but they'll gladly take your $$$$$ -- if you're stupid enough, that is, to give it to them. Bon appetit."
RATM strikes back.

"So I bought RATM's first album and really enjoyed it, so I thought I'd check out their 2nd and was very pleased. It seems like a very good come back, still political, still rocks,and still funky (a good funk). De la Rocha's voice is still powerful, their guitar still shreds and their bass is still funky (a good funk). I thought this was a very good follow up, "Bulls on Parade" rocked my socks but everyones' heard that one. The song that really caught me off gaurd was "Down Rodeo" this a very good blend of RATM's style and something else, a bit more like hard rock. It is a great album and I am really enjoying it. I am not a die hard Rage fan but am really getting in to them. Try this out."
