reviewPublic Enemy Nothing is Quick in the Desert
Earlier this month, Hip-hop stalwarts Public Enemy released their 14th album, Nothing is Quick in the Desert. The release was available as a free download for only a limited time; but can still be listened to on YouTube.
Greg notes that the group has been around for thirty years, providing important, socially conscious rhymes on albums like 1988’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. This album attempts to continue that tradition.
Jim can do without Flavor Flav, but Greg disagrees saying that the emcee adds“comic relief”and“flavor”to what can be an otherwise“heavy”group. However, Jim adds that Chuck D provides insightful, politically charged lyrics.
Jim says that though half of the album is "as good as anything Public Enemy has given us", he can only give the record a Try It.
If you are looking for the old Public Enemy, according to Greg your best bet is to seek out“old Public Enemy”music. But, the group is still an arena-rap draw, he says; and the material on the album will play better on the stage. In that context, Greg gives the album a Try It, as well.
