  • Evil Empire lacks the intensty of Rage’s self-titled and Battle of LA, but still packs a powerful punch. Brad Wilk’s drum work on Evil Empire is amazing, and the best work he has done in any of Rage’s four albums. Tim Commerford has fanatastic baselines all throughout Evil Empire (i.e. Without a face, Snakecharmer, and Roll Right). His work doesn’t stand out as much compared to Take the Power Back or Calm like a bomb, but after a few listens, the bass stands out more and more; and that is not a bad thing. And then their is Tom Morello’s distortions, they also don’t stand out as much at first, but they still are great. The guitar in Bulls on Parade, Tire me, Without a face are fantastic. And their is the unique use of the guitar in the last track, Year of Tha Boomerang, which adds to the greatness of Morello. Evil Empire also proves that Zack de la Rocha could be superstar in the rap scene. His lyrics are creative, and his delivery is perfect.
    My favorite tracks: Bulls on Parade, Snakecharmer, Tire me, Down Rodeo, and Without a face.
