TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Fear Of A Black Planet’ – Third LP By PUBLIC ENEMY…

Remarkable albums from the past

‘Fear Of A Black Planet’
PUBLIC ENEMY

Released: 10 April 1990
Third longplayer

NME wrote: ” ‘Fear Of A Black Planet’ stands as a masterpiece of righteous anger and
furious energy. Lyrically, tragically, tracks like ‘911 Is A Joke’ and ‘Fight The Power’ returned
to the forefront of the cultural discourse last year after the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of the American police. Musically, The Bomb Squad’s ability to create order from a white noise chaos of sampled loops, stolen riffs and radio chatter foreshadowed the coming technological overload of the 21st Century. Sprawling over 20 tracks, ‘Fear Of A Black Planet’ is hip-hop at it’s most musically ambitious.”
