Public Enemy is one of those acts whose work I find hard to discuss, simply because of the fact that I don’t think I’m a good enough writer to do their music justice (aww, don’t you feel sorry for me…). So agreeing to write about their damn-near perfect 1990 effort “Fear of a Black Planet” was a challenge, to say the least. “Fear” is more vibrant, more relevant than albums half it’s age-definitely a need-to-own if you’re a hip-hop fan, whether you agree with their politics or not (I’d say I agree with their message more than I do their politics).
Anyhow, I reviewed it over on Popdose. Why don’t you mosey on over there and check it out?
