Rage Against the Machine's follow-up to their 1992 debut (which wasn't anything great) dissapoints even more, and is a prime example as to why I think so many of the mainstream bands in the 90's are all fluff and no stuff. While their debut at least had some good rock riffs and solos here and there, "Evil Empire" throws those away and trades them in for oddly-crafted riffs and solos that don't sound much like anything.
Zach's rapping got even more annoying and the songs sound even more like goofy, politically-charged noise. Not even Timmy C.'s bass is any good here, since the "funk" tone in the previous album is totally absent here.
This is just another baseless slab of mainstream 90's MTV music, avoid.
