This is over an hour crammed into one LP. Haven’t heard this pressing, but I can’t imagine it sounds very good.

30 years anniversary on this exact date. The first 2 PE albums revolutionized the distinctive and noisy identity of Public Enemy's sonic brilliance but 'Fear Of A Black Planet' came over as a completely coherent and conceptualized album. Bomb Squad's production is out of this World and listening to this masterpiece is like reading your favorite book. You simply get drawn into the perfect narrative that the entire team surrounding Public Enemy laid out on this album. Fight The Power!

Wow -- this original pressing is mindblowing. The CD or digital files of this classic just don't do justice to the massive sound of the Bomb Squad here -- what once was almost tinny and small is here otherworldly and immersive. I've always thought this was their greatest album but listening to it in this form only made me appreciate it even more. Grab it if you can.

Public Enemy: 25 Years On, Why 'Fear Of A Black Planet' Is More Relevant Than Ever

"As Public Enemy’s ‘Fear Of A Black Planet’ turns 25 it couldn’t be more relevant. It 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."
