Editors’ Notes It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back could be the boldest album to emerge from hip-hop's Golden Age. Over the course of 16 proudly uncompromising tracks, Chuck D's commanding baritone and hard-hitting polemics are flanked by Flavor Flav's hyperactive ad libs and Terminator X's vicious scratches. The Bomb Squad's production stitches together discordant snippets of samples to create hardcore backdrops for epics like "Bring the Noise" and "Rebel Without a Pause." Consider yourself warned.
