Rage Against The MachineRage Against The Machine
A landmark but also a genuinely great album. Of course, the focal point is Zack de la Rocha's righteous fury and Tom Morello's magnificent and inventive riffing. On the other hand, the solos are just serviceable with some nice noise-inspired passages. The rhythm section is also low in originality, but very, VERY high on angry grooving, just like the compositions and song structures demand. Overall, a must have and indeed one of 1,001 albums (or less) you should hear before you die.
