RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE The Battle Of Los Angeles (1999) 320 Kbps MP3 ALBUM

The Battle Of Los Angeles (1999) 
Rage Against The Machine

Album Description:

THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES is the third studio album by Rage Against the Machine. It was released on November 2, 1999, and over three years after their second studio album, EVIL EMPIRE. Between Evil Empire and Los Angeles, the band released a live album, titled LIVE & RARE.

The song "Calm Like a Bomb" is featured in the credits of The Matrix Reloaded. The videos to "Sleep Now in the Fire" and "Testify" were directed by documentarian Michael Moore. Both "Testify" and "Guerrilla Radio" are also featured in the video game Rock Band 2, being on-disc and downloadable, respectively.

The album debuted at #1 on Billboard''s Top 200 selling 420,000 copies its first week. That week saw a busy CD release schedule. The album denied Mariah Carey''s highly anticipated album the chance to open at #1. "Guerrilla Radio" was featured in Tony Hawk''s Pro Skater 2, albeit heavily edited on the Nintendo 64 version, and it is also heavily edited on "Madden NFL 10". Both Time and Rolling Stone named it the Best Album of 1999. It was listed as #53 in SPIN Magazine''s 100 Greatest Albums, 1985-2005.

"Guerrilla Radio" won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.
THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. 

Rage Against the Machine doesn''t release rushed albums for the sake of exposure. Each of the band''s deftly crafted full-length albums has defined a progression in the group''s sound and musical vision. Here, Rage has taken the dynamics of its unique style to a deeper level, as evidenced on "Mic Check," which features gentle, unsettling guitar work by Tom Morello, who is deservedly hailed as an innovator of the instrument. The mid-tempo funk of "Maria" finds vocalist Zach De La Rocha telling the poetic story of an immigrant factory worker whose dream of freedom leads her unknowingly into modern-day slavery. Taking up the cause of death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jabal, De La Rocha questions the validity of his trial in "Guerilla Radio" and fleshes out his argument in "Voice of the Voiceless." "Sleep Now in the Fire" finds De La Rocha making historical references to government greed and the darker side of human nature. Though other rap/metal acts may have seemingly copped some of its musical traits, Rage Against the Machine has a conviction and passion that cannot be matched by any other band in the genre.
