Public Enemy remastered from analog tape / 2 LP 180G Vinyl
“It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” represents Public Enemy’s second studio album, originally released on June 28, 1988, through Def Jam Recordings. The album’s title succinctly encapsulates its essence. In 1988, Public Enemy’s music possessed an unmistakably revolutionary edge. Rarely has a record so effectively compressed feelings of fear, anger, paranoia, and anxiety. The bomb squad’s artistic prowess is evident in the album’s hard, lean delivery, complemented by Chuck D’s sharply pointed lyrics that fearlessly explore every facet of the black experience. While not an easy listen, tracks like “Don’t Believe the Hype,” “Night of the Living Baseheads,” and “Rebel Without a Pause” make it abundantly clear that the listener is confronting a remarkably powerful force.
