You may recall from my recent review how gobsmacked I was by XX, the 20th anniversary reissue of Rage Against the Machine's seminal debut album. Normally I am a fairly vehement detractor of the whole reissue thing, but I will make an exception for this one. XX is actually well worth it.
The special edition I have to give away contains two CDs - a remaster of the self-titled debut Rage Against the Machine album and the original demos for same - and it also comes with a DVD of videos and live clips. You may just want to give yourself this for Christmas.
All you have to do is tell me what you were listening to twenty years ago. And if by chance you weren't around or you were listening to womb sounds at the time, just tell me what you wish you were listening to twenty years ago. The winner will be chosen by random draw.
Let's have a quick turnaround time for this contest, shall we, to ensure that you get get this special edition under your tree before all the shortbread is consumed. Contest will close Sunday, December 16 at 11:59pm MT. Unfortunately the contest is only open to Canadian residents, although of course I would love to hear the musical reminiscences of my non-Canadian friends as well.
So come on! Take the power back and get in on this!
