The 2nd Best P.E. Album!!!
World Champion | Bridgeport, Ct. United States | 10/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There will never be another Hiphop/Rap album as great as "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back" but this album is as close as it comes to that album!!!! Excellent, Powerful and Strong!!!!! I love "So Whatcha Gone Do Now?" the perfect "punch in the face" to the bulls@*t Gangsta Rap of the time. The first time I heard that song when it got to the end with the various sampled voices reinforcing the message, it brought me to tears. "Race Against Time" is classic P.E. Listen to this album from beginning to end and decide "what side you on"!!!!"
A Great Funk-Rock Effort from the Veteran Rappers

"Muse Sick N Hour Mess Age

Don't let the obtuse title throw you off (an inverted reference to the O'Jays' "Message in our Music"). This is a great Public Enemy album. From the opening scratched-wails of "Whole Lotta Love Goin On..." to the roaring thrash guitar of "Hitler Day", this album packs a mega-dose wallop of hip-hop fury. This time around, Chuck D and the Bomb Squad crew bring more live instruments into the mix: Guitars, bass, drums & keyboards. It's almost an alternative-rock record, but that's no reason to think it's less potent. Lyrically, Chuck takes everyone to task on this record, challenging both the establishment of the United States of America, and the hip-hop audience themselves. "Give It Up" is a bluesy up-tempo jam and the first single. "Bedlam 14:14" finds Chuck remarking that he's "good enough to know no `Indo', I threw it out the window, along with the Super Nintendo", avoiding peer-pressure trends of drugs and video-games. "What'cha Gone Do?" is an early indictment of the growing `thug-life' culture in urban America and an thinly-veiled critique of gangster rap as well. The blistering "Live & Undrugged" finds Chuck nearly losing his breath on an extended rant, declaring himself the "rhymer in a zone". On "Hitler Day" Chuck blasts what he feels is a whitewashed nostalgia associated with mainstream holidays. "Godd Complexx" is a Flavor Flav cover of a piece by 70's-era spoken-word act the Last Poets. This album was somewhat passed over in the midst of the mid-90's zenith of Death Row and Bad Boy records, not to mention the debuts of people like Nas and Coolio. Def Jam also abruptly changed distributors, which probably also put a dent in promotion. A handful of mixed reviews at the time suggested that the band had lost a step, but compared to other rap works of the period, Muse Sick may end up being the least dated.

2nd Best P.E. album ever

"This c.d. is so underrated that it's dumbfounding... if you're a fan of classic hip hop or p.e. you need to have this album or at least download the songs... the best songs include "give it up, what side you on, bedlam 13:13, so whatcha gonna do" and many others... i recommend this album to everyone... it's really good."
