I am duly impressed by the new Public Enemy track. PE has figured out how to do something that sounds like them but isn't just an imitation of the '89-'91 Bomb Squad-style production; navigating the tension between nostalgia and new creativity is something most reuniting acts can never manage. In particular, the years seem to have dropped Flava Flav's voice a little, which serves him quite well. I may actually have to look out for their new albums.
