    Match-Cut Band Consensus - Rage Against the Machine

    The Rules of the Game:

    How to post selections:

    - Assign a rating to each album based on a scale of 1-10
    - Half points may be used
    - It is not necessary to rank the albums. Instead, please post all lists in chronological order, starting with the earliest album.

    For an album to be eligible for the band's overall rating, it must have at least four (4) votes. Otherwise, there isn't a sufficient amount of votes to make the rating as objective or effective as an album that has received twenty (20) votes. If an album is mentioned only once or twice, I will still post that album's average (quite easy if only mentioned once) but I will separate it from the albums that factor into the band's overall rating.

    Rage Against the Machine
    Evil Empire
    The Battle of Los Angeles
    Renegades

    Since this one was late notice I thought I would go with a band with a small discography.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Not a big fan of the band, but I love their lead guitarist. Dude is a technical wizard.

    I'm in the minority, but I feel that their last few length of new material contained their best blend of lyrics tied to music. Their debut was certainly more anthemic, but Battle... wove Zach's most trenchant lyrical subject matter together.

    EE has Bulls on Parade, and some of the best production of the band, but otherwise....

    An always solid group that defines my high school days. Not sure there's a comparable group in today's world.

    I saw them live around '96. Amazing concert. Closest I've ever seen a band being punk as fuck at an arena show.
