Again, the title spoke volumes. This time they raged just as hard, but their political consciousness had grown. Professor Griff had been ejected from the band for his anti-Semitic stance, and much of the album's atmosphere is created by the bunker mentality of resultant clashes with the press. The siege mentality only underscores the group's hard-nosed, cut-and-paste sample technique and the eloquence of Chuck D. 'Fight The Power' still bites harder than just about any other track in rap's history.

Public Enemy CD
I grew up listening to Public Enemy. They have always sounded great and are still awesome to listen to when Im in a rap mood. Flavor Flav and Chuck D really mixed well and they really rocked when they mixed heavy metal.
