APOCALYPSE '91-THE ENEMY STRIKES BLACK finds Strong Island's finest plying their raucous, angry trade once again, as unapologetic as ever. Their place in rap history was long secured by 1991, but the trio doesn't waste a second resting on its laurels--the album's opening salvo, "Lost At Birth" is militant and severe, introducing them as the "prophets of rage." Chuck D's no-nonsense delivery contrasts Flava Flav's manic rage, while turntable master Terminator X serves up an endless assault of hardcore sonic shrapnel.
"Nighttrain" is a staccato barrage, relentless and steeped in the blend of extreme racial pride and paranoia which put PE on the map. In "By the Time I Get To Arizona," they direct their vitriol at the state that rejected Martin Luther King's holiday. "1 Million Bottlebags" takes on beer manufacturers who target inner-city markets, exposing the self-destructive urge that fuels this practice. Thrash masters Anthrax climb aboard for an unlikely pairing, beefing up PE's classic "Bring the Noize."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/3/91) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...attempts nothing short of setting a sociopolitical agenda for the black community....APOCALYPSE '91 needs to be watched..."
Spin - Ranked #7 in Spin's list of the 20 Best Albums of 1991.
Spin (10/91) - "...The funk of R&B, the hooks of pop, the grind of metal...To listen to Public Enemy is to hear a bomb squad explode."
Q (9/95, p.132) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...fine by any but their own Olympian standards...showed Public Enemy ploughing old furrows..."
Melody Maker (12/91) - Ranked #21 in Melody Maker's list of the top 30 albums of 1991.
Melody Maker (7/22/95, p.35) - "...[album number] four was still massive, still mighty, it still thundered down on you with locomotive force. But cracks in the surface were starting to show...."
New York Times (Publisher) (9/29/91) - "...hip-hop's prophets of rage...with songs that mix political, personal and promotional statements in quick-cutting, often oblique language..."
NME (Magazine) (7/15/95, p.47) - 7 (out of 10) - "...a more soulful, funkier stew than previously served but there were a couple of fillers....Good, but not as indispensable as its predecessors..."
