Public Enemy: Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age (1994)

public enemy muse sickBy Scott Goldfine

Controversial, political rappers Public Enemy have ended a three-year hiatus with their fifth new studio creation, “Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age.” Leader Chuck D’s authoritative voice takes aim at blacks who are propagating the systematic destruction of their race through drugs, crime and ignorance.

But, the music isn’t as dense or urgent as in the past, taking much of the luster out of PE’s bluster.
