I liked it because I thought what I heard of it sounded good and I wanted to hear the rest of it. And I ended up liking that just as much.

I think the only criticism I have of hip hop is i'm getting ****ing old. I am consistently feeling like a dumbass when i go to hip hop shows and see all the kids in the audience.

Yeah, it sound better.

Just so no one complains about the intentional vagueness here: Clams Casino's instrumentals i've heard are kind of corny, all new agey vocal samples and wind-like synthesizers; Terminator X's beats are frantic, siren-like, perfectly fitting for the revolution Chuck D wanted to provoke or evoke. It's almost sad, considering the energy and purpose of X's beats and the stagnancy/inactivity of the airy atmospheres Clams creates. Not to say his contributions to LiveLove weren't hot, but "Peso" was just as good as well as "Acid Drip" and those weren't his.

Slick Rick was in character, it's not supposed to be taking literal, check Children's Story. It's just enjoyable for being off-the-wall and imaginative, as the title suggests he's a great story teller.
The fact he has the unique mix of African American and Londoner accent definitely helps.

It's really hard to respond to this. The way you phrase "the plight of the black man" sounds mocking, as in public enemy is hard to take seriously because you think they were exaggerating something that, in your immediate environment, wasn't existent. Hence why you think the album is poor, and why those at the time thought it was radical and thought provoking music. If it makes you feel validated to turn your nose at a pioneering sound in the genre, I won't stop you. However, the reason Flava Flav was in the group was to be the antithesis to Chuck D's conscious style. You seem all too eager to plant your little catchphrase "all it is is them shouting terminator x" no matter how un-true it may be.

The bold portion i don't know how to answer really. Obviously Clams Casino (of all the people to name) won't be trying to replicate public enemy circa 1988,just as how Radiohead aren't trying to reproduce the beach boys. I'd say beach boys have aged but you can't deny it's value at the time.

For the record I own every PE album and listen to em still on occassion. You can't deny the impact these guys had on conscious level rap in general. The rap game did change for the better with the inclusion of PE. I think where they really set themselves apart was their live show, Only the Beasties have impressed me more in a live setting. Somebody had to be anointed as the rolling stone kings of rap, and PE was definitely not a bad choice as they transformed hip hop for the better.

I'd also say, much like Public Enemy, the Beach Boys production still sounds great.

Besides, Radiohead have cited the Beach Boys as influences; their best stuff is influential to a lot of great musicians, including Paul McCartney in his Beatles days.

More importantly, you need to listen to the Smile Sessions. Check it on Spotify if you have one, if not, I'll up it.

More importantly than that:



I tried to find a DL but no luck I saw it once on vinyl and passed it up like a dipshit for Jaydiohead. now i'm mad.
