    After more than a decade as one of hip-hop's most pioneering and successful rap acts, Public Enemy forged new ground once again in the music business with 1999's THERE'S A POISON GOIN' ON. The album was one of the first feature releases available exclusively on the internet and is PE's loudest, most forceful record in years. Though the album does contain the radio-friendly "Do You Wanna Go Our Way," Public Enemy proves that it hasn't lost its vitriol with tracks like "Crash," "Last Mass of the Caballeros," and "LSD."
    Flavor-Flav is back in full jokster mode on such tracks as "41:19" and "What What." And of course, what's a PE album without controversy? "Swindler's Lust," in which Chuck D criticizes greed-driven record companies, has drawn considerable fire. For what it's worth, Chuck D and Public Enemy are as relevant today as they were when they first appeared on the hip-hop scene.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (8/5/99, p.64) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...there is some jigginess on this record....the emphasis is on sparser, more spacious mixes- less claustrophobic and dizzying...but still gripping..."
    Alternative Press (11/99, p.119) - 4 out of 5 - "...the still-strident PE are as an eyes-closed, headphones on high-volume experience. It takes extremely seriously the idea that hip hop should be consciousness-altering music..."
    The Wire (8/99, p.55) - "...Public Enemy are back and this time it's personal....Everyone...finds themselves caught in Chuck's rhetorical crosshairs and no one survives intact....this is the loudest, noisest Public Enemy album in nine years..."
    Muzik (8/99, p.84) - 5 stars (out of 5) - "...defiant, provocative and reassuringly abrasive music....this album is a treat....POISON is vintage PE, all the more welcome at a time when there had seemed to be no one left who was prepared to make rational, thoughtful, incisive hip-hop."
