Run DMC, much like contemporaries Public Enemy, are a rap group whose albums all sound markedly different. After Raisin' Hell, Run DMC must've known they had a lot to prove in following up such a terrific record. Tougher Than Leather proved to be worth the 2-year wait. Starts strongly with Run's House, which seems to hail the band's return. Mary, Mary laments a girlfriend who's buggin' out! They Call Us Run DMC is by far my personal favourite, and showcases very well the skills of the late Jam Master Jay. Almost every track contains sampling of some kind, typical of the mid-to-late '80s, smack in between Electro-style rap and the gangster-orientated style which dominates today. The album is musically diverse; rock, soul and jazz all get a look-in. Run DMC's finest hour.
