I just heard “Harder Than You Think”, a Public Enemy single from last year, from their album marking twenty years in the biz. I lost touch with PE about ten years ago when I decided they weren’t going to surpass “Nation of Millions”. Also I just couldn’t bring myself to get past the stupid title and ugly cover of “Muse Sick ‘n’ Hour Mess Age”. Fickle, I know. Anyway, it’s good to hear them still making noise. I loved the driving horns, and Chuck D sounded as annoyed as ever, if a bit older. Somehow Flavor Flav doesn’t really sound any older though. I thought he had disappeared into the world of terrible reality TV shows, but I guess not.
